SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB acknowledged at materialPREIS2018 awards
No fewer than 118 entries were submitted for this year’s materialPREIS awards organised by raumPROBE, a highly reputed materials library based in Germany. These accolades are handed out to honour outstanding materials and those who design, manufacture and install them. The winners were officially announced at a special event in the Haus der Wirtschaft Baden-Württemberg, a major conference centre in Stuttgart.
In the “Ecology” category, the SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB solid timber construction system finished with KNAUF Rotkalk plaster was singled out for special mention. This decision was made by raumPROBE managing directors Hannes Bäuerle and Joachim Stumpp together with Jörg Schmitt, who was in charge of the competition. They based it on the fact that these large-format elements have great potential for timber construction. The issued certificate states: “This high-quality material reflects outstanding competency in materials”
We sincerely thank raumPROBE for honouring SWISS KRONO MAGNUMBOARD® OSB in this way. This large-format, dimensionally stable material permits extensive and flexible prefabrication for very quickly erecting entire buildings or adding storeys or annexes to existing structures. One of its big advantages is the fact that interior walls made with it are very easy to directly finish with plaster, paint, wallpaper or tiles without the need to attach intermediate boarding. A coating of the Rotkalk system from KNAUF, which consists entirely of natural materials, regulates humidity to support healthy living in an optimal indoor climate.
The award-winning materials will be on display for four weeks in the Design Center Baden-Württemberg and for 12 months in the materialAUSSTELLUNG.
