After RAL-coating in different colours, the special-format panels supplied by ProMetall were fastened directly onto the substructure by means of rivets; the type “Split” was selected to achieve a high degree of visual protection and to cover the installations underneath and protect them from weathering.
VISUAL PROTECTION AND WEATHERING PROTECTION ALL IN ONE
Cyta Shoppingwelt in Voels (Tyrol) was opened in 2020. With nearly 100 shops and 15 restaurants, the shopping centre is a popular destination for the population of Tyrol, mainly because of the visitor magnet Eurospar.
The circumferential banner consists of special-format expanded metal panels supplied by ProMetall. Thes panels were fastened directly to the substructure by means of rivets. The expanded metal type “Split” was produced in a number of RAL-colours according to the design draft and highlights different sections of the advertising space. In addition to the weathering protection, “Split’s” tight mesh ensures very high visual protection that successfully hides all installation details located behind the banner. A clever solution for trade centres with façades that require extensive technical details.
EXPANDED METALS – practical and elegant
Expanded metals and expanded grates are made of a single piece of metal to ensure there are no strands causing wear and tear and no weighed-down connections or welding seams. As a result, the sustainable, robust material exhibits significant strength and surface stability which makes it ideal for use in façade design. Various materials can be used, the mesh is generally diagonal, hexagonal, round or square, neither twisted nor welded. Depending on the type, various effects are possible. The material retains its inner stability even when it is cut. Due to their 3-dimensional character, façades made of expanded metal turn into “eye catchers”.
