FACID – THE FLEXIBLE FAÇADE

FUNCTION MEETS OUTSTANDING DESIGN

The demand for functional, flexible façades continues to increase. This makes it all the more important for architects, investors and building users to be able to enjoy new creative freedom. FACID makes it possible to create adaptable façade concepts which can be used to showcase a range of different buildings structures in a more attractive way. This exceptional, functional design freedom means that the textile façade offers sophisticated system technology with significant benefits. The result is an impressive, intelligent solution which meets the increasing requirements for architecture.

FACID combines the advantages of curtain walling with almost unlimited design options and a high degree of flexibility for architects, investors and users of the building.

The flexible uses of FACID mean that the façade can be adapted and shaped to fit a wide range of supporting surfaces. This creates unique designs which can be quickly adapted while the building is operational thanks to the use of system profiles. A number of different building structures such as car parks, office complexes, shopping centres, multi-purpose properties and public buildings can be showcased uniquely and economically using FACID.
