Metal ceilings: raw material for reuse across generations
Metal ceilings meet all the requirements for modern, sustainable building materials. They are durable and even after more than fifty years of use do not count as "scrap iron"; instead, they are raw material for reuse across generations.
New assembly & sample box explanation videos
To make assembly as easy as possible for our ceilings, there are now short clips for some systems (baffle, HT28 hang-in system, F30/EI 30).
Also for the Fural Metalit Dipling sample boxes there are now short explanatory videos to get a quick understanding of the assembly.
Acoustics and hygiene is inseparable for us and therefore a short video has now also been created with all the areas of application.
VÖTB Apprentice Days at Fural
July is the time: The VÖTB Apprentice Days take place!
Not only is there an interesting training part such as an F0 assembly training, working with metal or a company tour on the program, but also a lot of action ...
Because HYGIENE is not a coincidence ...
... and is written BIG at Fural, we now focus on a modern, technical building hygiene concept.
In the hygiene brochure you will not only find all the relevant aspects on the subject of building and hygiene, but also really good reasons why Fural's metal ceilings offer the optimum conditions for ensuring freedom from dust, fibers and mold.
Baffle - Product of the Year 2021
We are no strangers to innovation, which is why we have further expanded our expertise in the Baffle ceiling system. Baffles have also been selected as the product of the year 2021. We have summarized some exciting information and insights for you as a PDF.
Manual "Tested acoustics"
The numbers are impressive - 31 tested hole patterns with a total of 98 different tested superstructures are combined in the new Tested Acoustics manual.
A wide variety of situations are presented, as they occur in daily construction practice. Ceiling structures with different suspension heights, supports and support thicknesses are tested as well as the influence of cooling meanders on the sound absorption of metal ceilings, expanded metal ceilings and floating ceilings. Building acoustics were not forgotten either, and several ceiling solutions were tested for their effectiveness in terms of longitudinal sound absorption. Also shown are various solutions with wall absorbers.
