FAQ

What is an Omega Zeta Panel?

It is a mass-coloured, customisable, lightweight, 3 cm-thick micromortar panel for ventilated façades, measuring 3,000 x 2,200 mm, with pre-stressed bi-directional armour and tensile strength of 500 kg per rod, with 48 cast-in ferrules, embedded during the manufacturing process, resulting in an extraction force of up to 1,000 kg per ferrule.

What components does the system have?

The Omega Zeta system is made up of a micromortar panel of 3 cm thick, the Omega kit for fixing it in place, and the Zeta profile.

What is dry cladding?

It is an INDUSTRIALISED construction system, that does not require building work. It is made up of a metal structure of galvanised stell profiles, called Cs and Us, installed from slab to slad, with breathable, waterproof plasterboard installed on the inside, to provide the façade’s external insulation, with the Omega Zeta system installed directly afterwards, to close the façade.

What benefits does the Omega Zeta Panel provide for the building?

It gives the building a second skin, with a pleasing aesthetic and unique design, giving it personality and allowing it to integrate with its surroundings. As such, it helps to reach the thermal and acoustic comfort levels, assuring the well-being of those inside the building.

What is a ventilated façade?

A ventilated façade is a construction system for exterior cladding that provides a second skin for the building, made up of an inner layer, called the supporting structure, thermal and acoustic insulation, and an outer layer with an unsealed finish. The separation between the inner and outer layers allows air to circulate through the chamber. This kind of façade generally allows for durable, high-quality finishes that offer great performance in terms of thermal and acoustic levels in the building. In summer, the sun has no direct impact on the supporting structure, only the outer layer, and in winter, it helps to maintain a stable temperature in the chamber, avoiding thermal bridges and the resulting heat loss in the building.

Is the Omega Zeta panel suitable for restoration work?

Yes, with our 60 x 30 tube system, the Omega Zeta Panel is suitable for the restoration of façades, adding just 12 cm to the existing façade, and providing insulation and changing the appearance of the building.

Can it be used to install false ceilings?

Thanks to our cast-in ferrules, with an extraction force of up to 1,000 kg/ferrule, it is completely safe to invert the panels and install them in false ceilings.

Can the be installed in interiors?

Yes, although a study should be carried out by our technical office prior to initiating the project in order to assess how best to perform the work.

Is a crane necessary to install the panels?

Yes, it is necessary, in order to stop personnel from over exerting themselves and avoid injuries. Currently, thanks to our experience in all types of installation, we can adapt to the best system for lifting the panels in order to complete the project.

How customisable are Omega Zeta Panels?

Our panel is a blank canvas for ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS, where they can make their DESIGNS a reality, from punched perforations, textures of all kinds, and even acid-etched photographs. From our Moulds Department, we can provide you with advice. Please do not hesitate to contact us, and we will be delighted to work with you.

How heavy is the Omega Zeta Panel?

The panel weighs 75 kg/m2, so a standard panel of 6.6 m2 weighs 495 kg.

What standards are Omega Zeta Panels certified to?

CE mark.
ISO 9001:2008.
DAU 09/053 B (Documento of Assessment for Fitness for Use).
ETA (European Technical Approval).

What is a cast-in ferrule?

The ferrule is a piece of metal that is industrially inserted during the Omega Zeta Panel manufacturing process, to house the Omega Kit in the panel.

How strong is the ferrule?

ach ferrule unit can withstand extraction forces of between 800 and 1,000 kg, giving the panel great stability.

Is it adjustable?

Yes, the panel size can be adjusted to sizes smaller than the basic standard sizes, taking into account the position of the ferrules, rods and panel texture.

How is the Omega Zeta Panel shipped to the installation site?

The panel is shipped to the construction site in metal or WOODEN racks, the weight of which depends on the size of the panels being shipped. The logistics department will provide details of the type of crane required to unload the materials.

What is a panel hoisting cable?

It is a steel cable that is shipped to the site with the panels to ensure that they are hoisted correctly and safely during when they are installed on the façade.

What uses does the Omega Zeta Panel have?

Thanks to the panels strength, it can be used in raised flooring, ventilated façades, false ceilings, fencing, moveable slats in windows, urban equipment, second skins, vertical gardens, sliding doors, and much, much more! We would be delighted to analyse any application that you might require.

Once installed, is it possible to carry out repairs?

Yes, material and technicians are available WHO CAN ADVISE ON THE REPAIR OF PARTS that suffer impacts during the installation process.

Can panels on the façade be replaced?

Yes, we have an established procedure for panel replacement.
