FK-L 1/16 / Ventilated Facade Elements

FK system, horizontal joint panel facade. Vertical open and horizontal overlapping joints system. When installing it, we will constantly check weights and levels. We fix the brackets to the structure with a mechanical anchor, and to the wall using a chemical anchor. The anchors will be the most suitable according to the quality of the wall. We fix the vertical profile to the brackets with steel rivets, so it allows the dilation of the aluminium. To do this, we rivet a fixed point above and the following with mobile points. This pattern is used to place the entire horizontal profile. If, for example, we start right to left, we would fix the first on the right and the following would be mobile. We will always follow this guideline throughout... More

SANDEFJORD ICE RINK

In Sandefjord, carpenter Dag Olsen and his colleagues at Bygg og Maskin AS are busy mounting STENI façade panels on the new ice rink at the Bugårdsparken recreation centre. He estimates that two people can install around 70 square metres of façade panels each day.“I think this is the fastest way to install a façade. The panels are pre-drilled, so once we get them screwed in place, the wall is basically finished,” says Olsen. “This project uses a combination of STENI Nature, STENI Colour and STENI Vision. The panels are numbered and stacked in the correct order on the pallet in accordance with the specific design. This is a system that I can recommend,” says Olsen, who is in the process of mounting panels to create the image of an ice skater... More

Nickby Heart

In Nickby, about 35 km northeast of Finland’s capital Helsinki, we find Nickby Heart – a school that used STENI Colour and STENI Vision in combination with interesting architecture to create a unique designed and vivid expression.Weatherproof!“We wanted each area of the schoolyard to have its own identity, and STENI façade panels gave us just what we wanted. The colours are sharp and clear – and they really stand up to the sun, wind and weather. In addition, we could get graphics at the same quality. It was not so expensive either,” says Pentti Kareoja, architect at ARK-house arkkitehdit Oy.The architect chose to use STENI Vision and STENI Colour façade panels – colourful and playful. More

CANSO CANAL CONTROL TOWER

The Canso Canal separates the Gulf of St. Lawrence from the Atlantic Ocean. Canso Causeway Swing Bridge connects Cape Breton Island with the Mainland Nova Scotia. Since its construction in 1955, the bridge has been subjected to a significant volume of vehicular and railway traffic. It is a vital communication link not only to Cape Breton Island, but also to Newfoundland. When at the Swing Bridge Control Tower looking east, you see Strait of Canso opening up to the Atlantic Ocean.

ZENNE GARDEN - ST. JANS-MOLENBEEK

The project Zennetuin consists of 3 houses and a large public garden in the heart of Sint-Jans-Molenbeek, Brussels. The route of the former river, Kleine Zenne, is still clearly present on the site as an open space surrounded by an array of building typologies: warehouses, residential buildings and public service buildings. The ground is polluted with heavy metals and is exempt from remediation on the condition that the existing concrete floor slab is preserved and not perforated. For the construction of the Zennetuin we will thus start building on this slab. Large ‘sculpted flower pots’ and a spacious layer of ground on the concrete slab will guarantee sufficient chances of survival for vegetation and for the complex water management.... More
