At BAU 2019, heroal will present services for maximum design freedom in window, door, curtain wall, roller shutter, sun protection and roller door systems; allowing architects, planners and fabricators to react to growing individuality requirements from builders and investors in private and commercial construction projects.
In-house coating service
The heroal in-house powder coating system provides excellent long-term colour stability, gloss retention and weather-resistance as well as short delivery times and adherence to delivery times for absolute reliability in nearly all RAL colours. The highly weather-resistant heroal hwr powder coating optimally harmonises with heroal two-layer thick coating so that systems such as window or roller shutter systems appear to be one unit despite different coating processes. The fully automatic and objective surface inspection of the profiles guarantees 100% quality control. heroal is now expanding its portfolio to include two design options that build on the existing coating heroal technology.
heroal Surface Design
The coating process heroal SD provides a choice of many designs, such as the look of fine wood and modern concrete. In the process, heroal offers installers, builders and architects further options for distinction.
After the application of the hwr powder coating to the system profiles, they are wrapped in a transfer film which contains sublimation ink in the requested design. The profiles are shrink-wrapped into the foil during a vacuum process. Under the impact of heat, the ink is burnt into the powder coating, thereby establishing a fixed connection with the layers below. Once the foil has been removed, the surface finish heroal SD appears in its full aesthetic glory.
Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier
Thanks to the exclusive partnership with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier, heroal now offers an even wider range of colours for windows, doors, curtain walls, roller shutters, sun protection and roller doors. As one of the most famous architects of the 20th century, Le Corbusier (1887-1965) continues to significantly impact modern architecture today. During his lifetime, he created numerous urban development plans and built some pioneering buildings. It is for good reason that 17 of his buildings were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2016, attesting to the globalisation of the modern movement.
Drawing on his experiences working with structure, volume and colour, he developed two colour collections in 1931 and 1959: Architectural Polychromy. The two colour keyboards consist of a total of 63 colour shades from nine colour groups, based on natural primary colours that evoke associations with our environment such as space, sky, walls, sand and landscape. Each colour is eminently architectural and naturally harmonious. All colour shades can be combined with one another in impressive fashion and embody spatial effects: “Colour modifies space, classifies objects, has a physiological effect on us and reacts strongly to our sensibilities” (Le Corbusier). heroal is the only company in the industry that offers various design options for the entire system portfolio thanks to the exclusive partnership with Les Couleurs® Le Corbusier.
Services for fabricators
In addition to surface coating, heroal offers installers unique services, such as profile bending and cutting services.
Form elements made from heroal window, door and curtain wall profiles can be individually manufactured as per customer request, thanks to the in-house bending technology. Highly modern production processes guarantee reliably high heroal system safety and quality – even for complex customer requests. For example, round arches, segmental arches or basket arches can all be realised.
The heroal cutting services allows fabricators to order all heroal profiles longer than 1.5 metres as custom-made products. This reduces waste and saves costs.
