Other materials

Colour-coated

Colour-coated metal facade products are a durable way to use colours in all sizes of monotone surfaces and colour compositions.

Rheinzink

Patinated Rheinzink has an aesthetically soft, matt surface that gives a very natural impression. The patina changes very little over time.

Glass

Glass creates a high gloss and durable flat surface for the facade.

Pattern-painted aluminium

The painted pattern on the metal sheet makes the surface livelier when observed at very close proximity. 

Cor-Ten

Cor-Ten is a solid steel that has a natural, rugged patina that ages continuously in a unique way.

Copper, Brass, Bronze

Patina forming on the wall and various pre-patina options give these solid metals a live, genuine surface for very long time spans.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel maintains its shine and appearance very well and, as a solid material, it is very easy to maintain.
