pladur® Relief Icecrystal: facades with ice crystal structure

pladur® Relief Icecrystal: facades with an ice crystal structure

Unique facades: With its patented design based on natural ice crystals, the glittering surface of pladur® Relief Icecrystal lends unique texture and color to the facades of upscale architectural projects. High-end, multistory properties clad in this organic coil-coated steel exude a special charm all of their own, as the color and texturing of the facade with a character of ice crystals change depending on light and viewing angle.

For modern facades: setting standards, creating highlights

Glittering facades with pladur® Relief Icecrystal

Design freedom in the most fascinating forms

Individually formed elements are just as simple to produce with pladur® Relief Icecrystal as standard parts made by press braking or roll forming. This means that entire roofs and facades with an ice crystal structure can be designed just as attractively and characteristically as individual elements for interior and exterior applications.

The surface of our material is incomparable in the truest sense of the word: Firstly, it can only be produced using our special process, and secondly, no two elements are alike as the texture cannot be mass reproduced.
