Sheath made of wood

Back to the Roots: For a long time wood was the building material par excellence, industrialization changed this. But now we are gradually returning to the natural, durable and vapor-permeable material that gives every facade a special charm.

Corten steel cover

Corten steel has been one of the trendsetters of recent years: The steel is delivered bare and its surface gradually oxidizes to a deep reddish brown. This layer protects the material from the effects of the weather and makes it extremely durable. A chic industrial design is created!

Clinker and natural stone

Clinker bricks and natural stones, which are an exciting alternative to plaster, are considered aesthetic evergreens. They give the facade a rustic look, clearly structured and durable. This cladding does not require a lot of care.

Modern high pressure laminate

High-pressure laminate panels, which can be printed with every imaginable motif, offer enormous optical design freedom. Their surface is extremely hard and impact-resistant, and they can withstand weathering for many years. A true work of art is created!

Corrugated iron cladding

Sheet metal can be designed three-dimensionally in a variety of ways so that it can look really grandiose in the end! A corrugated iron facade promises visual excitement and high weather resistance. It can be designed both vertically and horizontally - or a combination of both.
