Can you imagine a multi-coloured geometric pattern or the reproduction of a large-scale photograph on a façade? We can make it happen with our aluminium links.
Kriskadecor's new cladding system includes versatile and discreet profiles that reduce installation times and costs drastically. Likewise, thanks to the lightness of the aluminium links (2kg / m2), coverings of any size can be carried out. For example, the Ecuador Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo by Zorrozua y Asociados, where it was possible to reflect the country's cultural and historical richness on 756 m2 of chain.
KDC Thin System allows us to couple the cladding of tensed chains to any type of façade or roof. The profiles are made of aluminium and can be lacquered in any RAL colour. The plastic elements are made of a highly resistant technical material. In addition, if necessary, a motion limiter can be implemented to control the oscillation of the chains.
The open area of the links, which is 69.79% in the standard option, allows for the ventilation of the building while protecting it from direct sunlight.
Thanks to the lightness of the material, we can manufacture chain cascades in one single piece with which, for example, it’s possible to beautify the lobby of a hotel or the interior patio of a building in which ducts and technical registers are exposed. From the outside, it looks like a solid surface and provides privacy. From the inside, the transparency of the chain links grants complete visibility. Surprising results can also be achieved when it comes to connecting different floors through stairwells.
Both the chains and the profiles are made of 99% aluminium, a highly sustainable and recyclable material. The technical plastic of the tension system is fully recyclable.
