The Trespa® Meteon® FR UNI COLOURS panels are high-quality high-pressure laminates with a thickness of 8 mm, which are suitable as decorative exterior wall cladding for ventilated facade systems. For these purposes, the solid panels meet the strict requirements for fire behaviour of various European and international standards and are considered flame retardant. The surfaces of the UNI COLOURS series are available in many different colours. In our delivery programme, we deliberately rely on a decor on both sides, in which the front and back of the HPL panels have the same colour in a silk matt satin finish, so that the rigid panels can also be used for partition walls and interior furnishings.
We offer the high-quality Trespa® Meteon® facade panels with decor on both sides in various shades of white and grey, as well as in trendy colours in our standard format with 2000mm length and 1000mm width. Other colours, as well as matt, glossy or structured surfaces, are available on request. In addition, depending on the design, HPL panels of the Trespa® brand are also available as individual cuts or in standard formats of 3050 x 1530mm, 3650 x 1860mm or 4270 x 2130mm. Simply send us a short email with the dimensions you require, specifying the colour, decors and surface finish. Our friendly team will promptly send you a customised quote, including shipping costs, based on your specifications.
All the colour versions of the panels from our standard delivery programme listed below have the same colour on both surfaces with a satin matt finish. The size of our standard format is 2000mmx1000mm.
The Trespa® brand stands for products that are characterised by outstanding and consistently high quality. It is not without reason that Trespa International is one of the leading manufacturers of decorative panels for facade cladding. This includes the Trespa® Meteon® FR HPL panels, which are designed to last for at least 50 years when properly installed. This is a high-performance material that is suitable for extremely high-quality and durable facade and balcony cladding, as well as countless possible uses both indoors and outdoors.
Among the most important features of the panels are the fire behaviour classifications, which are classified as flame-retardant by various standards, as well as the excellent weather resistance. These properties are of utmost importance if the single-colour decorative panels are to be used outdoors as cladding for vertical facade systems or for ceiling soffits. After all, it is hardly worth investing in materials and labour to clad an exterior wall if this is not going to last long due to inadequate UV and weathering resistance. With Trespa® Meteon® FR this is not to be feared. Even prolonged, strong sunlight does not cause any perceptible changes to the surface, which is proven by elaborate test procedures for grey scale evaluation for colour or in contrast. In combination with suitable installation materials and professional installation, Trespa® Meteon® FR facade panels have a general type approval for ventilated facade systems, which is also referred to as facade approval in common parlance.
HPL is also characterised by excellent physical properties. Thanks to their very good resistance to moisture, high-pressure laminates are considered water-resistant panels. This is due, among other things, to a very low water absorption of maximum 0.5%. Also in terms of dimensional stability at elevated temperatures, which can be quickly reached in direct sunlight, the facade panels from Trespa® Meteon® are absolutely convincing. With a very low expansion of less than 0.25%, both in the longitudinal and transverse direction, the panel dimensions change only extremely slightly. With our standard 2x1 metre format, this means a maximum expansion of 5.0 mm in relation to the panel length, or 2.5 mm in relation to the width of the panel. However, even with such small expansions, a constraint-free installation is essential for HPL cladding.
On request, the high-quality cladding panels are also available in many other colours.
Facade cladding with Trespa® Meteon® FR Due to the closed, almost pore-free surface, dirt adhesion is largely prevented. The chemical resistance, which also proves itself against strong cleaning agents, also contributes to the fact that facade claddings with HPL panels have a long-lasting beautiful appearance. The effort required for maintenance and cleaning is considerably less than that required for dirt-prone thermal insulation composite systems with surface plaster. Even graffiti can usually be removed very easily from the surface with suitable cleaning agents. It is not for nothing that vertical wall cladding in the outdoor area with Trespa® Meteon® is so popular.
The installation is based on different criteria. The installation material also varies, depending on the substructure. While approved facade screws and an EPDM joint sealing tape must be used for substructures made of wood, riveting with facade rivets with a head diameter of 16 mm is required for substructures with aluminium profiles. The type approval of the panels as a rear-ventilated facade system, which we receive from the panel manufacturer and have made available for download in the data sheets tab, contains very detailed information on how the installation as facade cladding is to be carried out, how the fastenings are to be selected and which installation distances are to be observed. In most cases, the installation is carried out with an open joint. This means that the panels are installed with a visible gap next to or above each other. This must be at least 10 mm due to the thermal expansion of HPL laminates.
As an alternative to vertical facade cladding with open joints, the gaps between adjacent panels can also be covered with our joint profiles. Please note that the distance between the two panels increases by the material thickness of the aluminium profile. In the case of our H profiles with a clamping range of 8mm and a profile thickness of 1mm, this means that the mounting distance between two panels must be 11mm. However, our profiles still have sufficient edge overlap on the visible side, so that they can be perfectly used for such purposes. In addition to the visual aspects, this also prevents insects, moisture from rain or dirt from getting behind the facade panels. It also closes any cold bridges, which has a positive effect on the efficiency of additional, optional thermal insulation.
Balcony cladding with Trespa® Meteon® FR HPL panels are also very suitable as balcony edging and guarantee the necessary protection against falling while at the same time providing effective privacy. In order for the Trespa® panels to be used for this purpose, they have been tested in accordance with the ETB guideline "Components that protect against falling". However, the installation depends on the type of substructure to which the panels are attached. Due to the large number of different systems and balcony construction methods, the specifications of the panel manufacturer, the installation instructions of the balcony builder and legal regulations must be observed before installing the balcony cladding.
However, the balcony railing is usually made of metal, so we also offer suitable fastening solutions to match. These include our large-head rivets for HPL, or stainless steel balcony screws (optionally with threaded sleeve or cap nut) in various lengths. These are each available as unpainted or, matching the decor, painted versions.
HPL panels in interior design Thanks to the many different colour versions, the sturdy panels match any furnishing style. From simple room dividers in doctors' surgeries and open-plan offices in neutral white or light grey, to targeted colour accents, e.g. as a kitchen splashback in Lime Green, Carmine Red or Golden Yellow, to shower splash backs in trendy dark grey tones that form a great contrast to light wall tiles. Trespa® Meteon® FR UNI COLOURS are a very good choice for countless interior design purposes. Thanks to the decor on both sides, the tiles can even be used free-standing or in furniture construction.
HPL is a very hard material, which places certain demands on the tools, especially in machining processes, because with simple drills or saw blades, which are suitable for normal wood or plastic, you are not well advised with high-pressure laminate, because these would wear out too quickly.
sawing HPL panels For facade cladding, straight cuts are usually made, which are easiest to implement with a circular saw. The best results can be achieved with a saw blade with alternating teeth or trapezoidal flat teeth and a high saw blade projection of 10%. The panel should be placed with the visible side facing the saw. This means that with a fixed table saw or panel saw, the visible side is facing upwards. With hand-held circular saws or jigsaws, the visible side should face downwards. For inside corners and cut-outs, a circular saw is usually not well suited, so the jigsaw is better to use here. We advise using special saw blades made of carbide for precision cuts for HPL, as this achieves a much cleaner cut pattern. The so-called Precision Cut saw blades are available from almost all leading manufacturers.
Drilling HPL panels For assembly with screws or rivets, holes must be drilled. These can be done with an HSS drill, but a special HPL drill made of solid carbide produces more precise holes. When drilling, HPL should always be placed on a firm surface so that the drill does not poke through into the empty space when it comes out. Otherwise, unsightly edge chipping of the decorative surface cannot be ruled out. For facade screws, the panel is drilled with an 8 mm drill bit. The supporting wooden substructure is not drilled. For aluminium substructures, the profiles are all drilled with 5.1mm. In the case of the panel, however, only the fixed point is drilled in this diameter, which matches the rivet. All other fastenings serve as sliding points for thermal expansion and must be drilled with a 10mm diameter drill.
Cleaning HPL panels The HPL panels from Trespa® are characterised by a closed, almost pore-free surface on which dirt accumulation is largely avoided. Nevertheless, dust and soot can accumulate on the surface over time due to environmental influences. External influences or vandalism can also cause unwanted soiling on the surface, but in most cases this can be removed from the surface with suitable cleaners. HPL is extremely resistant to chemicals and can even be cleaned with cleaning agents containing acids or solvents. In this way, even stubborn dirt such as sticker residues or graffiti can be removed. Soft cloths, sponges or soft nylon brushes are particularly suitable for cleaning. Scouring sponges or brushes with stiff bristles should be avoided, however, as these can damage the surface. The same applies to cleaning agents that contain abrasives or polishing particles. These should also be avoided.
