Surfaces and designs

High-quality surfaces for individual architectural styles

heroal systems for windows, doors and curtain walls as well as roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors offer individual design options for a major part of the building shell. Excellent surface coatings by heroal meet the demand of investors, architects and planners for a fine-tuned colouring of the different systems. Since the systems, e.g. windows and roller shutters, can be combined with each other, heroal has developed different coating technologies for the different requirements of each system. Extruded profiles are coated in heroal’s own hwr (high weather resistant) powder coating facility. It is ideally suited to match the 2-layer thick coating for roll formed products like roller shutter and roller door slats, so that a uniform look of the different surfaces is achieved. In addition, heroal SD provides for even more options to design various individual looks, such as concrete, rust or wood.

Exclusive colours for aluminium surfaces

For coating and refining surfaces, heroal partners have not only access to the entire range of RAL colours, but also to the exclusive, unique colours by Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier, which can be harmoniously combined with each other. That way, windows, doors, curtain walls, roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors can be perfectly adjusted to the look of the individual building. heroal’s coating technologies ensure colour stability, gloss retention as well as weather resistance of all surfaces. Thanks to the availability of different gloss rates for surfaces, it is possible to create subtle colour nuances. The gloss rates of different designs range from dull matt through brilliant to metallic.

Our partnership with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier

Creating unique surfaces with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier

Thanks to the exclusive partnership with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier, heroal enlarges the wide range of surface finishes available for windows, doors, curtain walls, roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors by the high-quality Le Corbusier colours of the Architectural Polychromy. This palette includes 63 shades from nine groups of colours, based on colours to be found in nature. Each colour is eminently architectural and naturally harmonious. Colour emphasises the character and the impact of a building. Colours by Le Corbusier may be used to set accentuations in order to underline the desired impact of a building even more – because each group of colours and each colour shade embodies spatial effects and provokes characteristic reactions to our sensitivities.

The colour shades by Le Corbusier are processed in our own heroal coating facility and, thanks to heroal’s hwr powder coating, offer a long-term, excellent colour stability, gloss retention and resistance to weather in the tried and tested heroal quality.

Innovative surface coating

For decades, heroal has set international quality standards in the field of aluminium coating – meeting all ecological requirements, as a matter of fact. With the new vertical powder coating facility started at the end of 2012, heroal underlines this claim for the future. heroal hwr-powder coatings meet the highest requirement of Qualicoat class 2 and represent GSB master quality. The weathering test has shown: heroal powder coatings stay colour-fast even under extreme conditions. The industry-wide leading surface coating opens up a wide range of options for different demands and architectural styles.

However, heroal SD does not only offer additional surface variants, this technology is also characterized by offering high durability and refinement standard. The combination of the coating process heroal hwr (powder coating) and heroal SD excels the good features of profile foiling, at the same time adding to your freedom of design. After the profiles have been treated with heroal hwr powder coat, heroal SD technology is applied in a second step. The profiles are carefully wrapped in a transfer foil with sublimation ink. A vacuum is created and the foil checked on perfect adjustment. At a temperature of 200° C, the ink transfers the colouring or pattern to the powder coating of the profiles.
