anyone wanting to implement sophisticated building envelopes relies on the façade construction expertise of seele

Thanks to years of experience and comprehensive know-how, seele is regarded as the technology leader in the industry. The deep understanding of the materials results in unique façade and roof solutions made of glass, steel, aluminium, membranes and other high-tech materials. New challenges, which not everyone dares to face, attract seele, which is why the group is regarded as an innovator in façade construction. What distinguishes seele is its comprehensive expertise in glass construction with the most modern glass production, high-precision steelwork and digitalisation with the "digital twin". Broadly positioned, seele goes into the depths, creates interfaces and takes care of questions of the future with the research project DigitalTWIN.

Digital transformation and industry 4.0 at façade specialist seele

Digital transformation and industry 4.0

seele is intensively dealing with the digital transformation. At seele, for example, all departments such as production planning and production already rely on a single 3D model. This results in an end-to-end digitalized process. With the help of the department for the development of digital tools and system integration, topics such as the "digital twin" are being pushed. In order to create synergies from other industries, seele is also involved in the DigitalTWIN research project.

Precise steelwork is the basic prerequisite for the successful implementation of a steel-and-glass construction. Low tolerances and uncompromising accuracy are an expression of the extraordinary façade construction competence. The challenge lies in mastering, bundling and directing forces and then manufacturing the steel constructions in an interplay of state-of-the-art robotics and experienced craftsmanship.

Glass competence from a single source

Glass competence from a single source

In order to implement a building envelope with oversized glass, many competencies come together: Structural design, structural bonding, logistics and assembly experience as well as manufacturing. Particularly in production, seele draws on the specialist knowledge of the glass fabricator sedak GmbH & Co. KG: sedak is the pioneering specialist for glass units up to 3.51 x 20m - processed, tempered, laminated, printed, coated, cold and hot bent.

Product innovations in construction elements

The entire façade know-how is bundled at iconic skin GmbH in the GSP® and ISOshade® product families. The intelligence of ISOshade® lies in the sealed cavity, which self-regulates climatic loads using a building physics principle. The building operator is interested in continuous monitoring and early detection of faults in order to carry out maintenance work in a targeted manner. With the newly developed sensor technology, conclusions can be drawn about changes caused by weather influences, deviating individual states or critical temperature and humidity conditions. A novel cloud cluster architecture is used to provide a simple, operable user interface.
