FACADES MADE OF HI-MACS®.
THE NEW GENERATION.
Inspired by Architecture.
LET’S GO OUTSIDE.
The organic architectural design of the Leonardo
Glass Cube requires a material which allows
curved, flowing contours without losing any of
its functionality and load-bearing capacity.
If you have worked with HI-MACS® materials before, you will know the effect: your own ideas
and the creative material inspire each other producing further, even better ideas. HI-MACS® can
give shape and form to virtually any of your design ideas.
New dimensions are opening up now: Just take the countless advantages offered by HI-MACS®
outside and use the material of possibilities to design facades as well.
It is the outdoor applications in particular where HI-MACS® scores
with its outstanding properties:
HI-MACS® offers clear advantages, even when compared with other
mineral materials:
Easy thermoforming
Organic-curved, three-dimensional facade architecture thanks to the
thermal moulding capacity of the material.
Outdoor applications
The HI-MACS®-FR-quality has been tailor-made for outdoor applications
and its resistance to UV radiation surpasses that of any other solid surface.
Translucent qualities
Spectacular light and surface effects are achieved by milling and
backlighting.
Fire rating test
The HI-MACS®-FR-quality passed the fire rating test with far better
results than any of the other mineral materials: The achieved SBI test
according to EN-13501-1 is the impressive proof of this.
Advantageous outdoor properties
The HI-MACS® facade colour range withstands humidity, UV radiation
or variations in temperature thanks to homogeneous, non-porous material
and other advantageous properties.
HI-MACS® facade colour range
The other 12 colours of the outdoor range, too, achieved good results
in terms of fire rating. Their excellent results: B1, which allows application
in almost every relevant area.
A durable material
Easy to clean and maintain, the perfect function and visual effect
will last for many years (even damage caused by graffiti can be removed
without any trace).
Exposed to the elements for many years, the HI-MACS® facade colour range has
withstood humidity and UV radiation without any detrimentral consequences.
The entire load-bearing steel
construction is coated with HI-MACS®,
creating a light and almost floating
visual impression.

HI-MACS® TURNS THE NIGHT INTO DAY.
This impressive gate can be seen at a busy road in the heart of Berlin. The exterior of the gate
is entirely cladded with HI-MACS® material. The material is carried on all the way to the interior
Photographed by Volker Mai
and is kept in a stylish white throughout.
While the robust and effectively staged surface dominates the facade outside,
it is the many small fabrication details inside which offer the arguments in
favour of HI-MACS®: both the address and a clear pattern of dots create an
impressive effect.
But the special highlight can only be seen at night: the entire gate is fitted with
an LED technology which is invisible during the day. Graphic patterns or letters
can be projected on the HI-MACS® surface, turning the straight installation into
a dynamic stage for lighting design.

CONVINCING INSIDE AS WELL AS OUTSIDE.
CHOOSE THE OUTDOOR EXPERT.
In Europe, for good reason, there are strict regulations regarding material
behaviour, especially the fire performance of the materials used. This
applies to many areas within a building, however, to its facade, rendering
a lot of materials unsuitable for use in safety relevant areas.
The HI-MACS® Outdoor Range offers a choice of twelve attractive shades
and, above all, maximum safety for the planner, the fabricator and the
builder — last but not least for the occupants of the building.
Achieving the outstanding fire rating class B 1, HI-MACS® facade colour
range passed all relevant tests, particularly fire rating tests, which
are conducted by renowned and independent institutes in cooperation
with German building authorities and their strict regulations.
Best UV resistance of all solid surfaces.
Low flammability.
Moreover, the entire outdoor range shows the best UV values of all
solid surfaces. Six colours are rated with the UV classification Delta E3
(“negligible fading possible”), the other six colours are rated Delta E4
(“slight fading possible”) during 5 years.
Above all, it is the tailor-made FR quality that passed the fire classification
according to EN 13501, B-s1-d0 (single burning test - SBI) successfully*
which by the way, is the only solid surface available in the European market
with such classification.
All of a sudden a building
has haptic qualities.
These white elements create a uniform impression: all window
framings and some wall elements are made from HI-MACS®, increasing
the value of the building considerably.
Especially the bottom section of the facade is within reach of
passers-by: wonderful if spectators “look with their hands” being able
to feel the perfect touch of the material.
HI-MACS® offers a 5 year warranty on UV resistance on colour and gloss
difference for the facade colour range (shown below).
The warranty is applicable after the first installation and is only valid for
the material; adhesive e.g. is excluded. The conditions for this warranty
are based on practical experience and ongoing tests.

Looking at it from the outside:
sheer design competence.
The ZARA shop in London: the fabrication and design
of the facade are meant to convey the design standards of this young Spanish brand name. Thanks to its
futuristic linear design which is both solid and avantgarde, the HI-MACS® surface is totally captivating.

If you would like to benefit from the wonderful design possibilities and
functional advantages offered by HI-MACS® and use it as facade material,
we suggest planning a ventilated rainscreen facade. This very common
system separates the thermal-insulation and weather-protection functions.
Here HI-MACS® benefits from its special mix of significant properties which
render the material virtually predestined for outdoor application.
The subconstruction on the wall.
Through the way panels are anchored to the wall professionally, the
cross-section below demonstrates the construction method of a ventilated
rainscreen.
Simple flashing details.
HI-MACS® and the recommended subconstruction also allow the installation
of roof and wall flashings or windowsills — easily and without any problems,
just like the entire facade.

Perfect protection against all external influences.
Thanks to the ventilated facade — and HI-MACS®.
The optimal method of mounting HI-MACS® on walls.
Perfect moisture resistance
HI-MACS® is highly resistant to moisture like rain, snow
or condensation, thus providing excellent protection
for the insulation layer behind the facade. Furthermore,
any moisture is perfectly removed via a gap between
the facade panel and the insulation material.
Perfect air circulation
In connection with the ventilated rainscreen technology,
HI-MACS® ensures air circulation irrespective of low or high
temperatures.This method removes condensation moisture
and prevents damage to the insulation layer.
Adjustable aluminium subconstructions are used for the professional
mounting of HI-MACS® facade elements. LG Hausys suggests using
proven high-quality products such as those offered by BWM installation
system.
HI-MACS® panels are mounted — invisibly from the outside — to the
aluminium substructure. We recommend using an invisible undercut
anchor which is offered by Keil attachment technology.
These elements are used to anchor HI-MACS® slabs on walls leaving a
20 mm gap between the slabs and the insulation material: a perfect
space for the vital air circulation. The insulation layer itself is well kept
in place between the aluminium sections and the wall. Depending on the
state of the building, the subconstruction is aligned to the individual
requirements determined by the architect.

properties result in significant energy savings.

HI-MACS® facade materials provide optimal noise insulation
thus reducing the noise level significantly.

ALL THIS PROCLAIMS
HI-MACS® FOR THE OPEN AIR.
Now advantages that used to be available for indoor applications only, considerably enhance
design possibilities for building exteriors. Thus, from a functional and esthetic point of view,
HI-MACS® opens up entirely new perspectives for the creative design of high-quality facades.
We would be pleased to provide you
with details and More information.
