In recent years, researchers have developed revolutionary facades.
Innovative technologies make buildings more energy-efficient and have a positive impact.
We introduce you to one of the futuristic high-tech frames that combine utility and creativity - the linear ventilated aluminium
Until now, aluminium facades have primarily been used in prestigious large buildings.
Innovative developments in processing technology make aluminium facades attractive even for smaller buildings.
Combinations with wood, concrete, masonry or coated steel sheets, open-up a multitude of new design possibilities.
Aluminium can also be used efficiently for facades with technical functions such as light control and shading.
LINEAR ALUMINIUM FACADES
The linear ventilated aluminium facade system was developed with an explicit eye for details, such as corners and window connections.
A complete system, a fully detailed composition for the covering of just about every conceivable surface.
The material with its cooling rib-like fins, has been chosen to present itself day in day out differently depending on the weather and the sun.
The position of the sun, the colour temperature of the light and the orientation of the facade create a shadow effect on the flat surface.
The shadow provides a mixed colour of tinted light that changes constantly during the day: in both grey and colour tones.
Aluminium is not only very light, but also extremely durable. It takes a lot of energy to produce aluminium from bauxite, but then the material is endlessly recyclable.
The profiles therefore consist of 95% recycled aluminium.
In this way we contribute to a sustainable society.
CHOOSE YOUR COLOUR
Colours can be added to the aluminium profiles through 2 high-tech processes:
Varnishes (also called enamels): for all shades the profiles are degreased, washed, treated with titanium, and dried. After that, a powdery coating of minimum 60µ is applied under electrostatic pressure. The profiles go into an oven (190°C) to bake the powder.
That is how a sturdy varnish is achieved. For a metallic structure, the same powder is used, but aluminium flakes are added uniformly.
Anodisation: the profiles are also degreased and washed first. After that, they are given a chemical bath, which produces an artificial oxidation and the pores of the profiles are opened. Then the profiles are coloured in a bath of metal oxide. Finally, the pores are closed again in a special steam bath.
Both processes are of equal high quality. The difference is only in the appearance.
Where the varnish covers the aluminium surface, with anodisation the structure of the original surface remains visible, albeit with an aesthetic shape: smoother and coloured or transparent.
