COLOR FIDELITY AND DESIGN FREEDOM
Brick material has an unlimited lifespan, withstands all environmental influences and does not require any maintenance at all. Fired tile is colorfast, UV-resistant and does not fade. The large range of colors, formats, surfaces and shapes of the brick tiles in combination with the flexibility in the substructure allow the architect and planner absolute freedom in designing and developing the facade.
Ecological and economic aspects are not to be forgotten when selecting the facade system. Brick is 100% naturally made of clay, which is ecologically mined in special clay pits on surfaces that are always subsequently restored. The material is free of harmful additives and excludes the use of heavy metals. The careful handling of the resources, production using ecologically sensible production processes and complete reusability at demolition are the factors that characterize this sustainable construction material.
INSULATION, SOUNDPROOFING AND FIRE PROTECTION
Rear-ventilated facades with rainscreen cladding achieve considerably smaller heat losses in the winter as well as reliable heat protection in the summer. In addition, they have a positive influence on the sound-insulating effect of the outer wall: the degree of sound insulation is increased. Additionally, due to the system, techical fire protection requirements can be fulfilled in line with building laws.
THE NEW BUILDING FOR THE FIRE STATION IS LOCATED AT A VERY EXPOSED SITE, RIGHT AT THE EXIT OF THE ELBE TUNNEL. THUS, WHEN IT CAME TO DESIGNING THE FACADE, THE FOCUS WAS NOT ONLY ON THE APPEARANCE, BUT THE MATERIAL ALSO HAD TO POSSESS HIGH RESISTANCE TOWARDS ENVIRONMENTAL INFLUENCES. CERAMIC IS EASY TO CLEAN AND THUS CLEARLY IN THE ADVANTAGE. THE COLLABORATION WITH MOEDING WAS OUTSTANDING. THE MANUFACTURER DEVELOPED THE SPECIAL COLOR SHADE TOGETHER WITH US AND MADE VARIOUS COLOR SAMPLES AVAILABLE AT SHORT NOTICE.

Due to the simple handling in installation, the durability of the materials (brick tiles and aluminum substructure) and the freedom from maintenance of the systems, the MOEDING ceramic facade is particularly economical and is suitable both for the construction of new buildings and for renovating facades of all building types.
VALUE PRESERVATION AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
In addition to the variety of design options, optimal insulation values can be achieved through our tile facades. The insulating material thickness under the brick tiles can be varied as required and thus all the standards of a reconstruction loan corporation efficiency house or a comparable passive house can be met. A well-insulated building shell saves heating costs and contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions and thus to climate protection. In contrast to other external insulations, the rear-ventilated facade with rainscreen cladding allows the wall to breathe, thus ensuring a healthy indoor climate.
With MOEDING, you receive not only the most individual brick tiles, but the complete package. We continuously develop our installation systems for the simplest attachment of the tiles possible. Would you like a particular substructure that you have developed yourself? Here, too, our specialists are at your side and design the perfect tile form for your plans. Additionally, our products are also outstanding for module and element construction. Examples of lighthouse projects for properties in an element design are the “Parkapartments am Belvedere” in Vienna and “Malmö Live” in Sweden.
