  • Material trend bronze, brass and copper in façade constructions

    29-10-2019: Façade construction specialist seele follows the current material trend in architecture by using the latest production methods.

    Methods such as additive manufacturing or the combination of post-processing and patination are giving rise to numerous new design options for bronze, brass and copper. Extensive material knowledge and many years of experience are the prerequisites for the use of this high-quality group of materials. Bronze, brass and copper are enjoying another revival in recent years due to their use by a growing number of architects, especially in North America and the UK. The use of copper alloys has a long tradition in the building industry. Copper and copper alloys are among the oldest technically used materials. In the building industry, copper is the most important non-ferrous metal besides aluminium. In current architectural designs, copper is used in many places and, due to its special properties, meets important functions.

  • Thermal cycling stresses in façades

    09-05-2019: Comprehensive tests are usually necessary when designing complex building envelopes.

    Safety and the consideration of thermal cycles are important aspects for complex building envelopes with bespoke designs. Besides the guidelines in applicable national and local regulations, the materials and forms of construction must be able to react to moisture and temperature fluctuations without the materials decomposing, without unacceptable deformations or noises. Performance tests carried out on accurate scale models of the assemblies, so-called mock-ups, are crucial for ensuring compliance with specifications. Façade construction specialist seele has set up a testing facility at its headquarters in Gersthofen specially for this purpose.
