SHEER GOOD MOOD IN SCHWECHAT
The planners of the residential complex Schwechat chose a horizontal access element in the form of arcades, executed in the form of hot-dip galvanised and powder-coated expanded metal sheet panels (type “Graz”), ready to install
The façade, designed and executed by ProMetall, lives through the arcades’ street-facing, colourful and varied colour scheme, an interesting detail which makes the development easily identifiable. It stands out when viewed from planes landing at Vienna’s airport and breaks up the colour scheme of Schwechat’s landscape.
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”.
