Multistory construction

pladur® – in a class of its own in every respect


Multistory construction with pladur onestar

Always attractive – from monochrome to brightly colored.

The pladur® onestar* class demonstrates how buildings can be given high-quality architectural or functional highlights without breaking the budget. This proven material helps provide a more attractive appearance for all types of multistory building – with long-lasting effect: resistance to corrosion, UV radiation and wear are built into this robust material, which is available in virtually any color.

Everything you need to stay looking good for decades.

Architects and construction engineers will also particularly appreciate the outstanding quality and excellent processing properties of pladur®. Unusual shapes, joining, bonding – all these are possible, and without compromising strength. Building owners will be delighted by another aspect: outstanding value for money. pladur® onestar* in particular scores very highly in this respect, for example in comparison with conventional materials such as aluminum.


Multistory construction with pladur twostar

Bringing out aesthetic features.

Whether the aim is for buildings to blend in or stand out – with pladur® everything is possible. High-quality pladur® twostar** materials are available in a wide range of colors and numerous surface textures to create special effects. The prefinished materials display high resistance to corrosion and wear, and additional properties can also be provided on request, for example when easy-to-clean surfaces are required for aesthetic reasons.

Everything you need for fascinating facades.

Whatever your color or functional requirements as an architect or building owner, with pladur® twostar** you can relax in the knowledge that even the most unusual ideas can be realized. Panel manufacturers will also appreciate the excellent processing properties of the material, making it possible to produce a wide range of elements for the most varied of solutions.


Multistory construction with pladur threestar

Steel appeal.

In addition to providing employees a place to work, company headquarters buildings often perform a signature function to demonstrate the organization’s high quality standards. pladur® threestar*** is the perfect solution – permitting a combination of premium color creations and custom surface textures to emphasize the exclusive character of the buildings, both outside and inside.

Everything you need to give buildings greater character and personality.

With its zinc-magnesium coating pladur® also offers outstanding corrosion protection, along with extremely high resistance to both UV radiation and wear (e.g. scratching). And the materials also retain their color to ensure the outstanding visual standards of the building do not fade over time.

But applications for pladur® are not limited to facades. They can be used for other outside or inside surfaces, e.g. for interior ceilings to improve acoustics.

pladur® threestar*** also displays excellent bending, deep drawing and profiling properties. Overall pladur® offers architects, building owners and panel manufacturers the complete freedom to give each building its own unique character.

We give your building a face!

The term facade originates from the Latin word “facies” meaning face. And like a face, the facade determines the appearance of a building and gives it a character of its own. But in addition to looking good, facade materials must also be functional and durable. thyssenkrupp has the ideal material: pladur® – attractive, innovative, sustainable. Hebrok knows how to use it: custom-made and built to last.
