KERAION®

Ventilated facade

Manufacturer AGROB BUCHTAL

Used world-wide for decades, the KerAion® facade system also offers – besides low weight and special fastening technique – alternatives to the otherwise quite usual board formats. In addition to rectangular panels, square panels in the large formats of 60 x 60 cm, 90 x 90 cm and 120 x 120 cm are also available, which are particularly suitable for the facade design of big buildings. All versions and formats received the general approval of the construction supervisory authority and also prove themselves in case of a statically demanding building structure. A high degree of creative freedom is ensured by the colour range. It is based on SpectraView, the range of nine colour families matched to each other and several contrasting colours, which was developed by the colour designer Peter Zoernack. It is completed by the “Design glazed” colours.

The KerAion® panels can be installed both with visible and invisible fastening.

KerAion® Quadro with a weight per unit area of 18.5 kg/m² and a thickness of 8 mm is mounted either by means of clasps (in case of the standard dimensions of 60 x 60 cm and 60 x 90 cm) or bearing profile (formats 60 x 120 cm, 90 x 90 cm, 90 x 120 cm and 120 x 120 cm).

KerAion® K8 (standard dimensions of 60 x 60 cm, 60 x 90 cm, 90 x 90 cm), also 8 mm thin and with a weight of 18 kg/m², is designed for the fastening by means of clamps. Optionally, safety tapes are available for all formats, which are applied to the panel reverse side already in-plant and prevent larger pieces from falling down if a panel is damaged.

Architects attaching importance to a particularly uniform joint pattern decide in favour of KerAion® Quadro with invisible fastening by means of clasps or bearing profiles (depending on the panel size). In addition, the system offers the advantage that a weakening of the facade panels by undercut anchors is avoided. KerAion® K8 with visible clamp fastening – with the colour of the clamp lips being matched to the design of the ceramic panel – offers other advantages: above all the rapid ins allation with well thought-out system components, both on metal and wooden substructure.

HT coating - Ceramic facades activated by light

Titandioxid (TiO2) wird bei hoher Temperatur unlöslich und dauerhaft in die Keramikoberfläche eingebrannt. Als Katalysator, der sich nicht verbraucht, löst es praktisch lebenslang eine durch Licht aktivierte Reaktion (Photokatalyse) mit Sauerstoff und Luftfeuchtigkeit aus. Dadurch entsteht aktivierter Sauerstoff und eine hydrophile, wasserfreundliche Keramikoberfläche. Der aktivierte Sauerstoff übernimmt nun zwei entscheidende Funktionen:

1. Unmittelbar an der Oberfläche der Keramik zersetzt er Mikroorganismen wie Pilze, Algen, Moose oder Keime und behindert das Wachstum. Dadurch wird Algen- und Moosbewuchs an Fassaden behindert, aufwändige und teure Reinigungen werden vermieden. Das spart erhebliche Unterhaltskosten im Gebäudelebenszyklus.

2. Luftschadstoffe wie zum Beispiel Stickoxide aus Verkehr oder Industrie werden deutlich reduziert. HT verbessert die Umgebungsluft des Gebäudes dauerhaft.
