For more than 150 years, PROBAT has been producing roasting machines and plants for the coffee processing industry in Emmerich am Rhein (Germany) as the world's leading manufacturer. The 4,900 m² new building and the conversion of the 13,000 m² existing space are based on the sustainable factory concept of the consulting and planning company Dr. Schönheit + Partner Consulting Engineering GmbH.
For the architecturally high-quality building envelope, the panels were chosen in colours in harmony with the corporate design and in two different degrees of gloss, which were positioned irregularly on the building. This gives the 200-metre-long façade a unique, lively appearance.
Elegant façade design with Pflaum FI mineral wool panels
Our Pflaum FI mineral wool panel is the perfect choice for a seamless appearance of the façade. Here, the fastening is hidden behind the ceiling shells by means of special milling of the composite panels, completely without visible screw connections of the panels. The shear-resistant bond of the non-combustible mineral wool fibres inside the mineral wool panels ensures that the insulation always remains in place and does not sag. The result is a functional and contemporary façade with maximum safety and stability at the same time.
The Pflaum FI sandwich panel is available in many different colours and surface designs with panel thicknesses up to 200 mm and special construction widths up to 1,100 mm.
