Ceramic tiles with HT coating applied in-plant of AGROB BUCHTAL and JASBA (brands of DEUTSCHE STEINZEUG CREMER & BREUER AG) are beyond doubt with regard to healthy living and indoor air quality. This is confirmed by a differentiated examination conducted by the renowned Sentinel Haus Institut (Freiburg). TÜV (Technical Inspection Authority) Rheinland LGA Products GmbH, Nuremberg, acted as analytical laboratory. The focus of the examination was on emitting volatile organic compounds (VOC = Volatile Organic Compounds) and formaldehyde.
The TILE AWARD is aligned towards young architects / interior designers up to 35 years and is a conceptual experimental competition initiated by AGROB BUCHTAL. The response to the première in 2010 was so great that the competition was continued in 2012 and for the third time in 2014. Visual publication of the prize winners took place in the second quarter of 2015.
You are intensively dealing with building history and theoretical subjects of architecture, lecturing at universities, giving speeches, organizing exhibitions, writing books, but you are also working as an architect at the Wingårhs office in Stockholm. Which tasks are you performing there?
Four years ago, the German trade magazine FLIESEN & PLATTEN first called on its readers to vote on the 2011 Product of the Year. In the Tiles category, AGROB BUCHTAL took second place that year with its XENO Series (KATO décor) only succumbing to the HOMING Series by its sister brand JASBA which therefore represented the overall winner. But this time around, AGROB BUCHTAL secured first place with its TWIN Series.
KeraTwin: top-class ceramic facades
As one of the few ceramic tile manufacturers world-wide, AGROB BUCHTAL has been actively involved in the sophisticated sector of curtain-type, rear-ventilated facades for several decades now. The KeraTwin system, which has been enhanced continuously over time, is at the heart of the portfolio. The current generation comprises two variants:
The system rail K20 (see Fig. 1) permits mounting of the ceramic panels completely without tools or other means for the first time. Accordingly, installation saves time and cuts costs.
The other variant is fastening by clamps (see Fig. 2) which are no longer visible once installation has been completed. In addition to conventional horizontal mounting, this solution also allows for vertical arrangements or even the cladding of the underside of projecting components.
