Parallel ACP (Aluminum Composite Panel) and glazing fixing detail refers to the method used to attach ACP panels and glass to the building structure.
This can include the use of structural silicone sealant, mechanical fasteners, and perimeter aluminum extrusions. The specific details will depend on the type of building, architectural design, and local building codes.
It is important to consult with a structural engineer or a qualified contractor to ensure that the installation meets all safety and performance requirements.

A parallel ACP and glazing fixing detail drawing is a technical drawing that shows the specific details of how the ACP panels and glass are attached to the building structure.
This type of drawing is typically created by a structural engineer or architect and is used by the contractor to ensure that the installation is done correctly.
The drawing will typically include the following information:
- The type and thickness of the ACP and glass being used.
- The spacing and size of the mechanical fasteners.
- The type and thickness of the sealant or adhesive used.
- The location and size of the perimeter aluminum extrusions.
- The location and size of the structural supports and anchors.
- Any special requirements such as fire-rated assemblies or wind load calculations.
It’s important to consult the detail drawing before installation to ensure the correct installation process is followed and all the required materials are on site.
