Product description

Glass ceramic has a unique, translucent optical quality that shows its crystal-like brilliance when lit up. When polished, glass ceramic emits a radiant shimmer, and when left naturally patinated, it has a unique appearance, half-reflectance and texture. Particularly striking, is the magnificence resulting from when a glass ceramic sheet is back-lit. The brand structuran® represents the applications of glass ceramic for external wall and facade cladding. MAGNA Glaskeramik is certified as made in Germany, in our factory in Teutschenthal. Our innovative technological know-how, in combination with our comprehensive quality control management, is the basis of our promise to consistently deliver the highest quality to our customers. structuran® glass ceramic is a material, which is characterized by its unique translucent surface and its sustainable nature as its production from 100% industrial waste glass preserves the usage of natural resources. Furthermore the patinated surface for facade applications shows a unique interaction between a facade and the reflection of daylight on the material. Several important innovations have been made with glass ceramics in the last two years. In the beginning of 2014, the new color Polar White, produced to 100% from waste from the solar glass industry (photovoltaics), has been introduced into the exterior cladding market. Polar White can be installed by the rain screen system with attached to carrier system with special Fischer fixings. Since the summer of 2014, a new collection of recycled bottle glass ceramic (Heineken Green polished, Brown polished, Blue) has been introduced as well. But most importantly to allow a wider range of applications for exterior cladding systems, we have developed together with partners from the glass industry a system to laminate glass ceramic to a safety glass unit, which can be even further built to an insulated glazing unit. Due to the exciting extension of applications, we decided to introduce the new brands structuran²® for laminated safety glass ceramic for exterior cladding as well as decoran²® for interior safety glass ceramic applications such as shower walls or staircases in February 2015. structuran® can be applied in sheets up to 2800 x 1250 mm, and can be used to cover exterior, as well as indoor facade. Cladding, as rainscreen and soon as curtain wall. MAGNA Glaskeramik offers an array of technical supports, including different fixing techniques and structural calculations consultants, as well as many construction project solution. Ecologically, the glass ceramic material is absolutely in trend. Glass ceramic is produced to nearly 100% out of waste materials from industrial float glass production plants, as well as bottle glass production plants. This environmentally-friendly circle is completed when glass ceramic itself is discarded, as it can be broken down completely by glass processors and used to create new products. Hereby, glass ceramics participates in protecting our natural resources, as well as upholding the balance of sustainability in construction and design projects.
