The façade – a versatile all-rounder
Nothing distinguishes the character of a building more than its façade. A façade creates that lasting first impression and, at the same time, offers a visual reflection of your company. In addition, it needs to fulfil a whole series of complex functions: intelligent façades are the key to sustainable buildings, they are responsible for a pleasant climate on the inside and they optimise the energy balance. Innovative façade constructions also automatically regulate the flows of heat, light and fresh air, they protect against the elements and take on a noise and fire protection function. This means that a façade poses a real challenge not only in architectural terms but also from a technical point of view.
Detailed planning – precise implementation
We understand the challenges presented by the construction of glass façades; which is why we do not forget the construction physics right from the planning phase. Working together with architects and planners, we develop individual concepts. Decades of accumulated knowledge drawn from experience and technical expertise form part of this process. The structure is planned with precision and down to the smallest detail – the quality of this work provides the basis for smooth and speedy implementation during the construction phase. We work with our clients to develop structures of the highest quality which are compelling from an architectural and functional point of view.
Curtain wall façade – the classic version
The curtain wall façade is the classic façade system. Implemented using supporting profiles, it allows large glass and window areas to be integrated into the façade. Curtain wall systems are installed as long pieces between floors vertically and between vertical members horizontally. The load is usually born by the vertical members. The use of variable profiles and different kinds of material makes curtain wall systems extremely versatile.
Precise prefabrication, expert assembly
With our knowledge drawn from engineering and experience we are also able to design unusual curtain wall systems. The individual elements are then prefabricated with precision at the FREYLER plant in Kenzingen before being expertly put together on the building site by either our own assembly team or by our long-standing partners.
