The façade on the Grumbach headquarters extends half way down the side of the building with a slight flair before the bottom section begins. The owners wanted to replace the previous wooden façade on the upper section with a long-strip panel construction that created a similar recognizable look. However, they also wanted to be free from the continual maintenance of the old façade. Upon assessing a range of materials and solutions, the decision was made to use the color coated product, GreenCoat PLX BT from SSAB.
The primary motivation for choosing GreenCoat PLX BT was the long-lasting coating that is self-cleaning and provides excellent resistance to corrosion and UV radiation. Furthermore, GreenCoat PLX BT offers a lower impact on the environment than other materials by featuring a Bio-based Technology (BT) with a substantial portion of the traditional fossil component replaced by a bio-based alternative like rapeseed oil.
Installation was performed by a carpenter and not a traditional tinsmith. The carpenter had worked with zinc and copper before, but had experienced these materials as hard to keep flat and easy to damage during installation. With GreenCoat PLX BT, the carpenter was very surprised at the ease of handling, flexibility of the steel and the ability to create nice seam working without any real tinsmith experience.
Upon completion, the result is a high quality and modern looking façade with clean lines that are free from buckling. The new façade supports Grumbach’s image as a professional company and a trustworthy supplier.
