Function of Insulated Panel Connectors

Plate-type insulated panel connectors bear the weight load of the outer layer facing wall. Due to this weight load, the outer layer facing wall will experience vertical displacement relative to the inner layer wall. Under wind loads, wind pressure and suction on the outer surface of the outer layer facing wall result in tensile and compressive surface loads, which exert tension and pressure on pin-type insulated panel connectors. During seismic activity, horizontal loads acting perpendicular or parallel to the insulated panel connectors affect the outer layer facing wall, causing the connectors to experience tensile or shear forces. Under normal conditions, sunlight heats the outer layer facing wall, inducing temperature stress in the concrete. Insulated panel connectors resist deformation caused by this temperature stress.

Supportive concrete insulated panel connectors

Supportive concrete insulated panel connectors are primarily used to bear the vertical forces generated by the weight load of the facing layer. They also consider eccentric loads (expected or unexpected) as well as horizontal loads generated by wind and deformation.      Limiting concrete insulated panel connectors bear the forces acting vertically on the surface of sandwich wall panels. These forces can arise due to temperature deformation, wind forces, or demolding.
