Second prize for fibre-reinforced plastic with plaster look
The fibre-reinforced plastic with plaster look impressed a prestigious jury for the second time: LAMILUX TextureWall wins the German Design Award. In addition to LAMILUX's multi-award-winning daylight systems, this is now the first composite from the Rehauer family-owned company to receive this award. Only a few months ago, the product received the Pro-K Award.
The glass-fibre-reinforced composite LAMILUX TextureWall is an alternative to conventional plaster facades for prefabricated modular construction. When unable to use rendered façades, architects, planners and developers of mobile homes, container homes, military camps, industrial sheds and prefabricated houses can now use TextureWall, a demonstrably exceptional alternative, according to the German Design Awards jury. The jury presented its award to LAMILUX TextureWall, which is mainly used as a robust facing sheet on sandwich panels for cladding facades.
This type of design is in line with future trends in pre-fabricated module production and sandwich structures in construction and restoration work. Whereas existing products primarily feature a smooth, clinical-looking surface, LAMILUX TextureWall excels as a UV- and weatherproof variant for outdoor areas thanks to its attractive, authentic plaster look. For this reason, it was successful in the "Excellent Product Design – Material and Surfaces" category.
And the product it self not only provides aesthetic benefits, but also processing advantages: TextureWall is manufactured in large panels or as rolls and is accordingly installed over a large surface on the facade. As such, the facing material has no joints which need plastering, allowing construction work to be completed sooner, at less expense and with a visually appealing result.
