Strength and reliability
Protection from bad weather conditions
Roofs and suspended ceilings
A roof is the upper part of a building used for protection from the sun and bad weather conditions. Roofs can be made of wood, concrete, steel and other materials. According to the number of flats, the roofs are mono, double-pitched, triple-sided, etc. To cover the roof construction they use ceramic or bitumen tiles, glass panels as well as polycarbonate, composite or sandwich panels.
A ceiling is the upper part of a space within the building used to separate it from the roof of from another upper space. There are different models of suspended ceilings, which have certain functions as heat or sound insulation and very often a decorative function. The materials used for the suspended ceilings also define their type: plasterboard with mineral wool filling, PVC cladding, aluminium hunter, mineral panels and composite panels.
The name of the steel roofs comes from the type of material used for their construction. They are made of profiled steel with a square or rectangular cross-section and a wall thickness of at least 2 mm. The already cut steel profiles are being welded into the selected design configuration and then ground, cleaned, degreased and then they undergo electrostatic powder painting. For a better corrosion resistance and long life of the steel, we recommend hot galvanizing zincing before painting. Steel roofs are characterized by a very high strength and offer the possibility of unique architectural solutions.
Sandwich panels are easily assembled elements with very good thermal insulation properties. They consist of two layers of steel sheet metal and an insulation of polyurethane, mineral wool or Styrofoam between them with a total thickness between 30 and 200mm. and they are mounted on the steel work by waterproof screws. They are suitable coating of walls, roofs, facades of buildings, etc. They also can be found in all colors included in RAL catalogue, and very easily match with other cladding materials. They are characterized by light weight, excellent thermal insulation properties and a high level of resistance to bad weather conditions.
Hydrophobic plywood, voalit or bitumen tiles
An awning or open shed is made out of steel metal work; hydrophobic plywood with Voalit or bitumen tiles is the closest metal work to the monolithic roof. Hydrophobic plywood is extremely robust and with an outstanding resistance to adverse weather conditions.Volait or bitumen tiles on the other side are elastic and waterproof, with good physical and mechanical properties and standing high temperature fluctuations. The resulting combination of steel profiles, hydrophobic plywood and wool has a long life and does not need any maintenance.
Glass and double glass panes
Glass is a stylish and durable solution for your awning. With maximum light transmittance and clear vision, glass protects from all atmospheric influences without getting damaging effects on its surface. Glass used in combination with aluminium awnings, pergolas and open sheds has a thickness of minimum 6 mm, and depending on the desired light opening it can reach up to 22 mm. and more. Required procedures for maximum durability and safe exploitation of these products are hardening or laminating of glass panels. It can be colored, mirrored or mechanically or chemically matted. For a better thermal and acoustic insulation glass can be assembled in form of double glass panes, as the top glass is being hardened and the bottom glass - being laminated.
Thermal and acoustic insulation - The cavity formed thanks to the installation of the suspended ceiling can be filled with mineral wool isolation or other acoustic or thermal-insulating material. This makes the product having very good thermal insulation and acoustic comfort features. Fire resistance - Mineral fiber tile panels and aluminium lamellas are fire-resistant and meet all fire resistance standards. Cleaning - The materials used for suspended ceilings are easy to clean, as the environment and the need for frequent cleaning determine the type of the ceiling itself. Maintenance - Most suspended ceilings do not require maintenance, but if it is necessary, it is extremely easy to do DIY and there is no need of looking for specialists to do it. Recycling - Most of the materials used for suspended ceilings are subject to recycling, which helps to protect the environment and nature.
Gypsum board with wool
Plasterboard is the most commonly used material for suspended ceilings. The plasterboard ceiling allows any architectural solution, a variety of shapes, embedding of heat insulating materials and hidden lighting. It consists of a profile supporting structure, hangers and sheets of plain of moisture-resistant or fire-resistant plasterboard. The finely mounted ceiling should be plastered and painted.
Aluminium hunter is a product mostly placed in laundry rooms, bathrooms and terraces. The aluminium lamellas are moisture-proof, robust and easy to clean, with an elegant design and quick installation. They can be painted by electrostatic powder painting in all colors according to RAL catalogue, as well as in wood imitation patterns. For the construction itself there are usually used galvanized/zinced or aluminium profiles and their assembling is being done by hangers, dowels and anchors.
PVC wainscoting is a moisture-resistant wall cladding as well as suspended ceilings cladding with a wide variety of colors and imitation of natural materials such as wood, marble, bricks and more. Because of its antibacterial properties and easy cleaning it is a suitable solution for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and labs.
Suspended Horst ceiling type "Armstrong" with mineral tiles is a very good solution for all types of premises due to the variety of materials which could be used for the panels. The system design of this type of ceilings consists of thin-walled galvanized steel profiles with polymer powder coating. It is characterized by extremely easy and quick installation, thanks to the connection between the individual elements. The built-in mineral panels are antibacterial, acoustic insulating, fire-resistant and easy to clean, also allowing subsequent painting with water-soluble paints.
Design and dimensioning
The exact dimensions of the roof or suspended ceiling as well its shape, the materials to be used and the matching color combinations are being taken into consideration.
Beyond the above mentioned elements the exact thickness of the roof is being indicated, the way of assembly as well as the exact dimension of cutting and shape of the particular parts of the product.
The model of the chosen construction depends on the type of suspended ceiling. Most often it is formed and zinced profiles, aluminium profiles or profiles as well as plasticized steel sheet metal and in some cases it could be profiled steel.
The next step is assembling of the roofs or suspended ceilings metal construction. The bearing or supporting construction is being mounted in our workshops and an anticorrosion covering layer is being put on it. The roof’s elements are being manufactured and painted in the chosen by customer colors.
The delivery of the manufactured product and the materials needed for installation to the site is being done by specialized transport vehicles for such purposes. To avoid scratches and injuries the elements of the construction are being packed with transport foil.
Our experienced installers have the most advanced professional equipment to achieve the required accuracy and ease of installation works. We work exclusively with high quality materials and do not compromise with the quality of the fixing, sealing, waterproofing adhesives and sealing compounds we use. After completing of the installation, the site is being cleaned from waste materials, filings and packaging foil.
Installation of a roof
The metal roof structure can be mounted on concrete or metal supporting columns by welding or anchoring. The construction is being covered with the materials specified in the design project as hydrophobic plywood, bitumen or ceramic tiles, sandwich panels, glass, polycarbonate or composite panels. All connections between the individual components of the roof are insulated from the penetration of water according to the used roofing material. Finally, the roof gutter system is mounted together with the drainage pipes.
Installation of a ceiling
After installation of the supporting structure and its eveling there folows the installation of the ceiling components specified in the project. They can be made of plasterboard, mineral panels, PVC lamellas, aluminium lamellas, composite panels and others. The finishing stage of the ceiling’s installation is its plastering (by gypsum board) or silicone caulk sealing (for the other types).
