Spotlight on translucent panels
BAU 2019: Rodeca to present high-quality design solutions
We reveal our broad product portfolio of polycarbonate translucent panels at the 2019 BAU in Munich. Focus will be on the multitude of design options for wall, roof and façade, due to back-lit panels and various colour options. A brand new range of matte colours, which give the panels an extraordinary surface appearance, is presented.
On 14th of January 2019, the BAU the global leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, opens in Munich. Every two years, companies from all over the world come here to present their new products, developments and innovative ideas in planning, construction and design for buildings. Being an important meeting place for the building industry, the BAU sets the agenda for both contemporary and future trends and innovations.
We are happy to be one of the exhibitors at the trade fair. We will be showing numerous products of our façade systems at a 70 square metre booth in Hall C2, no. 430. Rodeca‘s theme for 2019 is “Light through Roofs and Walls”.
We are looking forward to your visit from 14th to 19th January 2019 at our booth in hall C2, booth no. 430.
Project of the Month
908/5000 - Åre, Sweden
Situated just a few meters of the ski-lift-station, the Audi quattro lounge in Åre, Sweden presents itself as a cubical wooden structure, constructed out of prefabricated cross laminated timber elements, referencing traditional and sustainable building technologies.
The protruding roof corners with it’s triangulated parapet visually brake the box-like volume, transforming the rigid structure in a dynamic sclupture.
One of the main design features of the building is the north/east facade, opening itself towards the adjacent terrace and the slope of the hill. A signature ornament consisting in a timber lattice becomes apparent behind transparent polycarbonate panels. The contrasting materials of the facade dynamically interplay with the reflection of the sky and the radiating warm light from within the timber clad interior of pavilion.

Facade with fascinating plastic
The light building elements from Rodeca glaze a warehouse in Oberhausen. In Oberhausen an extension to an existing warehouse and logistics building for the Gude GmbH was created. Light-transmissive and coloured facade panels from Rodeca GmbH give the hall a special appearance both inside and outside. Above all, the appearance of the material contributes to a strong architectural appeal of the building.
The polycarbonate panels were customized in their colour scheme. With their multi-layered structure, they also take over the function of thermal insulation. This has a positive effect on the energy balance of the building. With regard to the use of the hall, the panels have other useful characteristics: Among other things, they protect the sensitive storage goods against UV radiation. The Gude GmbH with headquarter in Rheine is a supplier of disposable food packaging and hygiene products made of paper, plastic, aluminum and groundwood. From three locations in Germany, the wholesaler supplies and services customers like bakery, butcher, catering, industrial and office sectors. In Oberhausen, an existing warehouse and logistics centre has now been extended by a goods depot. With this extension Gude increases its existing capacities and creates the conditions for future growth.
The targeted use of colored panels gives each building a distinctive character.
Product version BICOLOR is exclusively available for our 40mm panel with four layers. BICOLOR means the inner layer of a panel is differently coloured than the three outer layers. Through that special colouring colour appears three-dimensional, lighting effects vary depending on day light and perspective.
Whether as stage setting, as display advertisement, for stand constructions or partition walls - there are barely limits for ideas.
As a matter of course our products are not only suitable for outside use. Especially in the field of interior design and application our products offer a wide scope for creativity and art.
A wide range of colours and products gives plenty options for creative freedom. All our façade products are suitable for usage in interior design projects as well.
