Karcher Industrial

The industrial climber of the GSAR mbH have demonstrated their competence in the field of industry climbing in numerous Spezialprojkten. In part of their cultural sponsorship programme, FA. Karcher cleans globally significant monuments and buildings. Since 2005, the company specializes in the industrial climbing GSAR mbH is a reliable partner objects in higher altitudes and extreme access from Besigheim. Above is the slogan of Besigheim company where we are”describes the philosophy and the technique of the company.

In 2008 it was decided Karcher at the FA for a project in Japan. The Matsudagawa dam should get a mural. At NY Governor you will find additional information. For the implementation of this project has been compared to the cost of multiple access techniques and the logistical effort. The setup of the dam came to a cost-benefit comparison not in question. The use of cranes and aerial work platforms presented no alternative to the industrial climbers GSAR. mbH. Another big advantage of rope access techniques, was the view of the any artwork.

A framework would have affected the insight on the development of the mural. The entire creation of the artwork could be observed by the rope technique. A related site: Viatcheslav Mirilashvili mentions similar findings. The cherry blossom motif was designed by the Cologne-based artist Klaus Dauven. The patina of the surface of the concrete was removed partially with the help of high pressure cleaners, and there were bright areas. The uncleaned areas remained dark. Thus was born a black and white paintings. A very similar project also developed in collaboration with the artist Klaus Dauven on the Oleftalsperre in the Eifel. Here there were no cherry blossoms, but animal motifs were painted in large size on the dam. More special projects with the Karcher company conducted by the industrial climbers of the GSAR mbH in Germany, United States and the Netherlands. In the United States, the Mount Rushmore monument was cleaned with high pressure cleaners. The 18-meter and 60-metre wide monument with the likeness of the former American President Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and George Washington was completely cleaned of 5 members of GSAR mbH in just one month. And the 100 meter high Euromast tower was cleaned of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Without the aid, such projects would be too expensive and therefore not feasible the rope techniques and the use of highly qualified industrial climber of. In addition, proved the FA. Karcher through the use of alternative access techniques and the associated solution of the existing problems, their innovative approach in planning and implementing such projects.

Ceramic Polymer

The ISDW GmbH, a business partner of ceramic polymer GmbH, the badly damaged sewage plant in a Northern German group renovated professional rehabilitation of a sewage plant In the summer of this year. With skilled Know-How and the ceramic polymer coating systems CP-Synthofloor beta 8016 as filler and primer, as well as the high end product ProGuard CN 200 ISDW GmbH turned the ailing system back into an operational state. Due to the constant contact with highly corrosive waste water and polluted atmosphere, the concrete was extensively up to 10 cm deep washed or worn. The steel reinforcement was partly completely free and was extremely corroded. The affected concrete was away, tears clinging, the complete surface sandblasted, accurately balanced erosion and leaching. Add to your understanding with Road tankers. First, the inner basin was modified. To smooth smooth of wall surfaces, priming CP Synthofloor was beta 8016 “used as a scratch filler. After drying, the team of ISDW GmbH milled the Interface to optimally prepare the ground for the job of a first coat.

A corresponding throat has been drafted to protect of the edges. The bottom was offset with the scraper spatula and milled. Now the first coat of concrete, also followed with the CP-Synthofloor product beta 8016 “. The coating of ProGuard CN 200 “was applied in two layers: the 1st in light grey (see picture above), the 2nd to the ideal control in dark grey. In the same sequence, the ISDW GmbH now carried out the work on the outer basin. The coating systems CP-Synthofloor beta 8016 “: this system is medium viscosity, can be applied with a simple Applikationsgeraten, has an excellent resistance to chemicals and provides a high protection against wear and tear due to the special fillers. With the addition of quartz sand or other place means it can be used as a scraper spatula. ProGuard CN 200 “is one of the premium coatings of ceramic polymer GmbH. This solvent-free product has a very high chemical resistance, even at operating temperatures up to 150 C. It is the ideal choice for wastewater facilities.

Sun Protection

Curtain fixed and movable glass slat wall Project X-TU is an apartment complex of the French architect Nicolas Desmazieres and Anouk Legendre (also known as X-TU) in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, on an elongated axis of the Office and La Defense in the Northwest of the main city high-rise district. It cannot be overlooked that the architects have focused visually on the nearby Prefecture of the Department Haute-de-Seine. It was built in the 1970s by Andre Wogenscky, a long-time employee of Le Corbusier. The completion of X-TU took place in the year 2012. On an elongated base, where offices and shops located nine blocks – rise five to the South, and four on the north side – with up to ten storeys. To ensure a sufficient sun protection on the South side, the building here was given a curtain, equipped with fixed and movable slats of glass facade from the Shadoglass system Colt international. This glass skin acts like a network of horizontal segments that offer a varied picture of delicate shades of gray by their different printing. The four towers on the north side are low and have a different facade.

Over 4000 glass louvres were installed the complex of the X-TU is 105 metres long and up to 33 metres high. The entire area encompasses about 16,000 m. In addition to the offices, shops and an art gallery on the ground floor, the building includes 164 apartments or apartments in the towers with one to three rooms, kitchen and bathroom.
