Examination of façade panels (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this report is to present some of the market's façade panels and to do a survey of Masonite façade panels and compare. Therefore I have looked closer on potential competitors and studied their assembly method and properties. I will also propose suggestions on installing Masonite panels and improvements to the current carrying system. The carrying system for façade panels in general.


Various key people in various areas of the construction industry have been interviewed. People with a wide knowledge of theory and with real work experience have been my main focuses too implement this survey. I have also collected data from the façade panel system’s properties.


There are benefits with Masonites façade panel but I also found that there is a possibility to make changes to improve their properties. The improvements are only theory and not tested in practice, but it could be a good start for improvement on the façade constructions. The results of my research and my proposals are explained in more details later on in this essay.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med den här rapporten är att redovisa en del av marknadens fasadskivor. En kartläggning av Masonite skivans eventuella konkurrenter samt undersökning av deras monteringssystem och egenskaper. I den här rapporten kommer jag även att föreslå förslag på montering av Masonites skivor och förbättringar av dagens läktsystem. Det som bär upp fasadaskivorna i allmänhet. Olika nyckelpersoner inom olika områden i byggbranschen har intervjuats. Personer med breda kunskaper om teori och monteringserfarenhet. Samt faktainsamling för kartläggning av marknadens fasadskivors egenskaper. Det finns fördelar med Masonites fasadskiva jämfört med konkurrenterna och det finns möjlighet att göra förbättringar på dagens läktsystem. De förbättringarna är endast teoretiska och inte beprövade i praktiken, men kan vara en bra start till utveckling av dagens fasadkonstruktioner. De förslag som jag kommit fram till finns redovisade i den här rapporten.
