Free forms, smooth transitions from roof to facade, and cylindrical and three-dimensional building shapes are increasingly required in modern architecture. A BEMO standing seam facade is exactly the right solution for this. BEMO standing seam impresses with many benefits, a variety of different systems and is suitable for both new construction and renovation.
Different profile widths from 100 mm to 800 mm, 2 profile heights, almost infinite panel lengths, parallel, conical and free-form profiles offer architects and designers a wide range of possibilities in the use of the standing seam facade. The standard materials used are aluminium and steel, but can be stainless steel, zinc or copper. Radii for curved profiles start as low as 600 mm, depending on the choice of material.
Convex and concave radii are possible with the standing seam facade. The penetration-free and therefore invisible fastening leaves nothing to be desired and provides maximum safety. Length expansion takes place smoothly and permanently on the system brackets. BEMO standing seam brackets without thermal bridges optimise thermal insulation in low system structures. The standing seam system is completed by extremely variable, economical BEMO substructure systems for optimum tolerance compensation for any building shape, and of course all designed by the BEMO technical and design team.
Straight or conical – free choice of shape and material of BEMO standing seam profiles
BEMO standing seam profiles ensure maximum safety for building cladding. Even in special shapes, BEMO façade profiles guarantee full functionality. Our standing seam facades also meet the highest demands in terms of structural soundness and acoustics. On top of that, they can be used for almost any shape of building. The visual design possibilities are many and varied. You have free choice of profile shape, metal, surface and colour. By interlocking onto special standing seam holders, a penetration-free installation is also ensured.
N 50 – the profile with 50 mm seam height and variable profile widths. It is often used for smaller roof areas such as monopitch roofs and residential buildings, as it has a particularly subtle and aesthetic appearance. The façade profile is also in demand for industrial roofs without high snow loads.
N 65 – the profile with 65 mm seam height and variable profile widths. Due to the seam height of the facade profile, it is particularly suitable for flat sloping roofs. It also has a very good load-bearing capacity and therefore good structural values.
VF 65 – the profile with 65 mm seam height and variable profile widths. This façade profile is ideal for use on rigid insulation and wooden boarding, where it is laid over the entire surface. The geometry of the bracket foot accommodates special mouldings without imprinting.
High adaptability for free-form buildings with BEMO-MONRO®
BEMO-MONRO® is a patented system that allows flexible adaptability of standing seam roofing to virtually any building shape. The system lets you create unique standing seam roofing at the front, where each panel is usually unique. Based on an exact 3D measurement, the metal sheets are shaped to the millimetre so that they fit perfectly into the measured space on the free-form building.
The MONRO® system is generally combined with a substructure that is adjustable in three dimensions. This allows unevenness in the supporting structure to be corrected easily and efficiently. BEMO 3D design plans the system ready for installation in the standing seam roofing of the façade.
For larger circular and conical buildings, special conical profiles are used. With a minimum width of 100 mm and a maximum covering width of 800 mm, these special profiles allow almost any requirement to be implemented. Because the standing seam sheets for the façade are formed to fit precisely in a single work step, there is no need for time-consuming trimming during the project.
All BEMO special profiles are also offered in curved shapes and in all materials.
Precise fit of the standing seam sheets by BEMO directly on the structure
Curved standing seam panels from BEMO can be used to create smooth building shapes. For a curved façade in perfectly fitting design, we shape the BEMO standing seam sheets into a curved form - often also with our mobile production facilities on site, not only to save freight costs, but also to be able to align the sheets directly on the object.
For a curved façade, the curvature can be either concave, convex or concave-convex. Curving down to the smallest radii is possible. Depending on the material and profile, minimum radii of less than 800 mm are feasible for us.
All BEMO profile variants can be used for subsequent curving. This ensures that even with a curved facade, complete functional safety of the products is guaranteed. Tolerance compensation is also possible using BEMO substructure systems BEMO-Dome or BEMO-Flex. We also recommend a 3D survey of the entire building shape as well as the use of the BEMO execution design in 3D.
Protection and design freedom with perforated standing seam facades
Perforated BEMO standing seam profiles impress with their many advantages: design and form freedom, high span widths and solar protection. Perforated standing seam profiles from BEMO can also be used to create perforated facades and therefore fulfil important protective functions in the facade. The profiles can be provided with almost any hole pattern and width. Parking garages can be clad floor by floor, thus saving substructure and installation costs. The profiles are slipped onto BEMO brackets and therefore allow continuous panels of 20 m and more. Apart from the vertical arrangement, standing seam sheets can also be laid horizontally or diagonally.
Panel seams come in two versions: with unperforated seams or fully perforated for free-form profiles.
High load-bearing capacity of the facade with brackets from BEMO made of aluminium or GFRP
The free sliding movement of the standing seam sheets during thermal linear expansion is one of the most important properties of a BEMO standing seam façade. For this purpose, the façade needs halters that ensure optimum load-bearing capacity. BEMO aluminium brackets are specially designed for optimum sliding behaviour due to their rounded corners. BEMO thermal caps TK 5 and TK 15 attached to the foot of the bracket provide thermal decoupling.
For a thermal bridge-free structure that sustainably reduces energy costs
As an alternative to our aluminium brackets, GFRP brackets are suitable for a thermal bridge-free construction. Our GFRP brackets are free of highly heat-conductive components and thus completely free of thermal bridges. As a result, the insulation thickness is significantly reduced while the effective U-value remains the same. They are distinguished by high rigidity and very good load-bearing capacity.
For easy and intuitive installation without pre-assembly of the brackets
BEMO clamps make it easy and fast to install a standing seam facade, even with aluminium brackets. The clamp has a specially designed, long sliding range so that lengths of up to 24 m can be installed in one piece without any problems.
Can be used for various building shapes and as rainscreen substructures
The BEMO-DOME substructure offers the right substructure solution for cylindrical or over 2-axis curved building shapes, as it can be used highly flexibly as a façade substructure. The cladding options range from metallic trapezoidal and corrugated profiles to conical or free-form BEMO-MONRO panels. The system is characterised by its good load-bearing capacity, perfect tolerance compensation and simple on-site installation. It is also ideal as a rainscreen substructure.
Whether for a rear-ventilated wall construction or unventilated, the BEMO-DOME façade substructure meets all requirements - also as a rainscreen. To obtain a perfect result, we recommend the use of a 3-D scan for the on-site survey and execution design in 3-D for this substructure system.
The standardised system always consists of the same components and varies between round and square tubes and different brackets, depending on the design. Fastening of the facade substructure is possible on the most diverse substrates and offers tolerance compensation of +/- 45 mm.
