Special features

ProMetall supplied over 2,500m² of special perforation individually designed for this project “just in time” for several construction phases over a period of 6 months; they also underwent a special laser treatment at a Carinthian partner firm. Teamwork Salzburg & Lower Austria & Carinthia!


Goethe estate, named after the originally largely undeveloped Goethestrasse, was built in the years after 1970 and was the city’s biggest residential construction project at the time

These days the estate is one of the most densely built-up residential estates in Salzburg. 2,500 residents live on approx. 13ha. Nevertheless, it is a sought-after address thanks to the direct connection to inner city public traffic and the proximity to the recreation area Altenbach.

In 2018 the residential building Goethestrasse 3 + 7 + 13 + 14 was adapted to the requirements of a new generation of residents. Amongst other things, balconies were equipped with new panels. They allow better views and upgrade the buildings‘ look by means of modern materials. ProMetall produced 2,500 m² of a special perforation individually designed for this project (perforated metal sheet type “RU 12-31”, aluminium 2mm) which subsequently underwent a special laser treatment and RAL powder-coating at a Carinthian partner firm.

Our metal professionals supplied the new balcony panels in various construction levels over a period of six months. Thanks to the perfect teamwork between Salzburg, Lower Austria and Carinthia, the existing residential complex is an architectonic contribution to making a traditional living area more attractive for a modern generation.

PERFORATED METAL SHEET – a new take on a classic

Perforated metal sheets have been produced in Europe since the late 19th century. In the past, perforated metal sheets were mainly used as sieve and filter elements and as protective plates in industry and machine construction. Creative designers and Western European product experts found new applications for the functional metal sheet – in the form of innovative designs for façade construction. Perforated metal sheets are popular for visual protection of façades in modern residential, hotel and office complexes and are often used for staircases and balconies. Nevertheless, perforated metal sheet has retained its practical character in the design sector and is also used as sound insulation in building construction. Advantages, applications robust material, combines functionality with attractive looks, façade design in transparent look, to visual protection, staircase and balcony railings, suspended metal ceilings, ventilation technology, insect screens in residential buildings, sound insulation.
