Facade fixing visible

Wooden facade cladding is becoming increasingly popular - it impresses with its natural look and blends seamlessly into its surroundings. However, care must be taken when fixing the wooden facade to avoid cracking and splitting. These would disturb the overall impression and even cause damage due to moisture ingress and insect infestation. SIHGA® therefore presents systems for visible facade fixing that eliminate the need for tedious and time-consuming pre-drilling and make installation considerably easier.

Advantages of visible facade fixing

The screws made of hardened, rust-free stainless steel are particularly suitable for outdoor applications such as the fixing of facades. No pre-drilling or pre-sinking is necessary - this shortens the installation time and ensures a smooth process on the construction site. All accessories required for fixing - such as the SIHGAFIX®, the Systemstift® and the installation instructions - are included with the product.

Visible facade fixings with Alu-TeFix®

The Alu-TeFix® screw for the visible fixing of facades is available in two versions:
  • Made from high-quality, rust-free stainless steel: These screws are used to fix wood to the TefaFix® F substructure - without pre-drilling or pre-sinking.
  • In A2 quality: These screws fix wood to aluminium and are particularly suitable for woods with a high tannin content - also without pre-drilling or countersinking.
The screw has a special geometry, which minimises the risk of cracking and splitting in almost all timber facades. The well thought-out drilling wing pre-drills the facade and prevents the wood from lifting during the screwing process. When penetrating into the aluminium substrate, the drill wings break off.

TeFix® for a clean facade appearance

To fix wooden facades to wooden substructures, we recommend the TeFix® stainless steel screw. This is not only rust-free, but also extremely break-resistant and is therefore ideal for outdoor use. As with the other fixing solutions from SIHGA®, no pre-drilling or pre-sinking is needed. The facade panels can be installed easily and cleanly.

The screw's special friction shaft pre-drills the wood and ensures that it can swell and shrink. This reliably prevents cracking and splitting. TeFix® also features a particularly thin, multi-stage head equipped with saw-tooth ribs so that displacement or splintering of the wood is avoided. This makes the screw suitable for almost all softwoods, hardwoods and thermowoods.

In facade construction, the TeFix® is the tool of choice in combination with our structural wood protection KompeFix®. This product ensures the necessary space between two timbers and thus ensures good ventilation as well as a long service life of the screw and facade.

Frequently asked questions about visible facade fixings:

For the longest-lasting and clean appearance of your facade, you should rely on fixing solutions from SIHGA® - unbreakable, robust and rust-free. These fixing screws are specially developed for outdoor use and ensure a permanent hold, despite the influence of the weather, without discolouring the wood.

Usually, wooden facades have to be pre-drilled before fixing so that the panels do not crack or splinter. SIHGA® therefore presents innovative solutions that can be installed without pre-drilling or pre-sinking. In combination with a suitable spacer, the facade panels can be easily fixed at the correct distance from the substructure and are also sufficiently ventilated.

Compared to invisible facade fixing, the visible variant impresses with simple and shortened installation. The innovative systems from SIHGA® also reduce the formation of gaps and cracks and ensure a clean, permanently beautiful facade appearance.
