2 - DESCRIPTION

HEXAVOTE PCA is composed of:


A self-supporting curved structure (superior and inferior arches) made of extruded aluminium. The arches are
1-metre spaced as standard but can be adapted to difficult climate conditions such as strong winds and heavy snowloads.
Extruded aluminium bank profiles for:
- The recovery of rain and condensation with evacuation on side.
- The fastening of the arches.
- The support of the lowest part of the filling and the tension of the arches.
Stainless steel screws and bolts.
A transparent PCA 10 mm filling with cold-curved double layers:
- Fire rating: M2
- Light transmisison coefficient: 85 %
- Anti-UV treatment
- Thermal coefficient: U = 3.1 W/m2 K.
Pre-assembled sidewalls.

3 - UPSTAND

HEXADOME also proposes the delivery of 20/10e galvanised steel upstand (not assembled when delivered) on which
is fitted bitumen heat insulation ready to receive a waterproofing coating.
Our upstands are delivered as standard with insulation and pre-drilled screws and bolt included.
Pre-drilled upstands with no insulation or insulated upstand with no pre-drilled are also available on request.

Recommendation
We recommend to install ties every 3 metres. Contact us for more information.

5 - OPTIONS

HEXAVOTE PCA 1200 JOULES


The implementation of longitudinal reinforcements on the arches, in compliance with the notice of installation for
the HEXAVOTE PCA 1200 JOULES, allows the HEXAVOUTE for a maximum width of 5 metres to pass successfully the
1200 joules resistance test. This test consists on dropping a 50-kg mass from a height of 2.4 metres. For an even
increased security, we recommend the use of anti-falling griddle.

Griddle
The anti-falling griddle, with square tubes 15 x 15 (thickness 1,5 mm), complies with legislation concerning the protection
of personnel induced to work on roofs. It passed the dynamic 1200 joules tests with success, which certify that the product
is resistant to the shock of a 50-kg mass dropped from a height of 2.4 meters.
This same griddle can also be fitted with anti-intrusion screws (one way), giving a higher protection to your premises
against possible intruders.

Filling
HEXAVOTE PCA is delivered as standard with a PCA filling (alveolar polycarbonate) with transparent 10 mm cold-curved
doublewall. Several options of filling are available:
- Opal PCA 10 mm : light transmission coefficient = 62 %.
- Opal PCA 16 mm (fire rating M2, available in transparent, opalescent or bronze).

Lacquering
Griddle and upstands:
The lacquering of the griddle and/or the upstand
is possible with the following RAL colours.
Please contact us for specific requests.
