Faced dowels for rainscreens

Intended use

The façade dowels are designed to provide fixing of a thermal insulation layer to various types of base material during installation of rainscreens.


The façade dowel consists of the following components:
  • anchoring element plastic plug;
  • expansion element BFRP bar;
  • plate-shaped element restrainer from impact and frost resistant plastic.


SPD 100-6, where:
SPD construction plastic dowel;
100 dowel element, mm;
6 bar diameter, mm.

Heat insulation fastening constructions are reliable and easy to install. Use of basalt or glass fiber spacer improves their strength and makes these constructions thermally non-conductive. The dowel can be used for fastening of insulation boards of any thickness.

Installation procedure of Galen facade dowel:

1. Space openings according to design drawings.
2. Drill an opening in a base through an insulation layer. A drill should be 10 mm in diameter, while depth of an opening should exceed length of a corresponding dowel sleeve by 10-15 mm.
3. Use compressed air for removing dust from openings.
4. Insert an assembled dowel into an opening and hammer it in until a cap of a pin is aligned with insulation surface.
5. Finish the surface in stucco or install a suspended façade after dowels are fastened.
Minimum 5-6 dowels are required per 1 m2 of a blank wall.

For wall insulation spacing between SPD dowels both in vertical and horizontal directions should be 500 mm.

Galen façade dowels installation can be performed at lower temperatures. Dowel locking pins are made of freeze and impact resistant polypropylene, which provides survive installation.
