The precision required for the projected graphics to align correctly with the facets on the sculpture demanded a fixing method that could support the weight of the panels. At a combined weight of over 500kg each panel had 5no. Z-rails running horizontally secured with M6 Squirrel® Fixings. This allowed the panels to be hung on the wall and aligned correctly.
M6 Squirrel® Fixings embedded into the back of a sheet of Corian® allow either metal Z-Rails or wooden split battens to be attached. Potentially a single M6 Squirrel® Fixing could support the weight of 5no. full sheets of 12mm Corian® (not that we are recommending it)! A spacing of between 400mm and 600mm gives plenty of support and keeps the panels flat.
The use of Z-rails allows for thermal movement when installing larger panels. Or the panels can be separated, allowing adhesive to be applied when seamlessly jointing on site.
