The buying of food is a sensuous, haptic experience at which the checking of the consistency of fruit, vegetables, meat or fish and impulse buys play an important part. In this connection, of course the products offered are essential, but also the environment in which they are presented. The floor covering is of particular importance: functionally because everything happens on it, and visually because it has a decisive influence on the overall impression. So far, its renewal has required great technical efforts and a lot of time. Now there is a solution which avoids these disadvantages and opens up new potentials: DryTile floor tiles of Agrob Buchtal. A convincing example for this is Dornseifers Frischemarkt (food product market) at Much/Germany. There, approximately 2,000 square metres of new tiles were laid in only four (!) working days in the autumn of 2018.
The collection District was inspired by the typical tile claddings of the Metro stations in big cities such as Paris or London. The special features of this so-called “Metro tile” are glossy glazes and bevelled edges on all sides in order to create reflections in this way, which improved the poor lighting conditions in most of the underground stations at that time. This filigree and yet distinctive type of tiles has always been and still is very popular among Industrial Style enthusiasts. Agrob Buchtal now interprets this subject in a contemporary manner with modern formats and colours. The new wall tile series has been developed for expressive wall designs in public areas. Its characteristics: clear, rectangular and faceted*.
Prefabrication is and always has been a key issue in construction on account of the advantages associated with it: components can be manufactured under ideal conditions independent of weather and then mounted or assembled efficiently so as to save time and money. For example this way, it is now possible to mount prefabricated houses within a single day. Prefabricated elements also play a key role in the safety-relevant area of facades. Apart from the goal of saving time and money as referred to above, there is yet another advantage in densely-populated cities: in many cases, there simply is not enough space to store semi-finished products on construction sites in terms of safety and logistics. A perfect example of where these aspects applied was realized in London in 2018 and involved competent collaboration by the renowned German companies Lindner Fassaden GmbH (Arnstorf) and Agrob Buchtal GmbH (Schwarzenfeld).
In 2019 again, Agrob Buchtal uses the internationally leading BAU trade fair for the dialogue with the relevant professional target groups including planners, craftsmen and dealers. In the usual place in pavilion A4 (stand no. 500) , the company presents up-to-date solutions in the building ceramics sector for public and private areas at a 340 m² large stand.
Interior design is based on the skilful dialogue of the materials used and the harmonious combination of individual components within a conclusive overall concept. This also and especially applies to sanitary areas and bathrooms in which diverse components are to be found: fittings, washbasins, bathtubs, shower tubs, mirrors, accessories, wall and floor coverings, lighting, windows, doors, radiators, electrical wall outlets, light switches, furniture... Without a “master plan”, it may happen that every single part in itself seems to be the right choice, but is not really convincing within the overall concept. A proven method for avoiding this crux is the use of components matched to each other, which at the same time offer individual scope for choosing the variation corresponding to the personal taste.
