Concept

KeraTwin® K20 / K18
With its variety of colours, formats and surfaces, KeraTwin® offers the architect an enormous freedom of design. And as diverse fastening alternatives ensure technical and constructional flexibility, this system offers the appropriate solution to every challenge – even on difficult bases.
Both variants, K20 and K18, are not only supplied in numerous formats, with KeraTwin® K20 being available in greater lengths. As facade system with the widest variety of colours, KeraTwin® permits every architect to realize its creative ideas. Thus, besides the colour range “SpectraView” with nine colour families harmoniously matched to each other and contrasting colours, the colour systems “Natura unglazed”, “Design unglazed” and “Design glazed” are also available.
On request, the panels are also supplied with profiles which – due to their three-dimensional structure – can make large facades less monotonous and lend an entire building a distinctive character. The joints are realized in such a way that the construction is optimally protected against driving rain. With their relatively low weight of 32 kg/m², the panels are easy to transport and to install. The two KeraTwin® variants essentially differ from each other with regard to the fastening, whose type depends on the requirements of the specific project. The vertical system rail K20, for example, offers an enormous freedom of design and an extensive range of accessories. As the panels are simply hung in the system rail, no additional tool is necessary for the mounting. An even faster and more efficient laying is possible with the innovative T-profile K20, which requires fewer individual components in the substructure. The vertical Omega profile K20 has proved itself as specialist for the efficient installation on difficult bases, e.g. walls with post and beam construction, while the clamp system K20 permits the mounting of the panels not only in horizontal and vertical direction, but also on ceilings.
HT coating - Ceramic facades activated by light.
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is inseparably and durably baked onto the ceramic surface at high temperature. As catalyst, which is not used up, it effects a reaction activated by light (photocatalysis) with oxygen and air humidity practically for a tile life long. In this way, activated oxygen and a hydrophilic, water-friendly ceramic surface are produced. The activated oxygen now fulfils two decisive functions:
Directly on the surface of the ceramics, it decomposes microorganisms such as fungi, algae, moss or germs and inhibits the growth. Thus, the growth of algae and moss on facades is inhibited, and time-consuming and expensive cleaning works are avoided. This saves considerable maintenance costs in the life cycle of a building.
Air pollutants such as, for example, nitrogen oxides from traffic or industry are considerably reduced. HT permanently improves the ambient air of the building.

Rain cleans
The hydrophilic ceramic surface effects that rain drops are not simply repelled but spread to form a thin film and infiltrate the dirt. The result is an efficient self-washing effect, which prevents the adherence of dirt. This also avoids costs with regard to cleaning and the early replacement of panels. Active support at every weather – sun and rain perform the effective and environment-friendly cleaning free of charge! HT keeps facades clean.
