DANKERT-TRITTSICHER Impact Protection
(Registered as a utility model at the German Patent and Trademark Office)
Modern buildings often have facade constructions with facade panels made of natural stone, concrete or ceramics. The facades are designed as ventilated facades or non-ventilated facades. They serve f.e. for protection against weather, for design and the protection against mechanical stress.
Facade panels, in particular made of natural stone, may be damaged or broken by shock or impact loading, impact loads and vandalism. This is an unexpectedly big problem because many boards are damaged or destroyed this way every year. In order to restore the facade both functionally and visually, the entire façade panel must be replaced and, if necessary, the anchorages repaired or renewed.
This leads to high costs in the elimination of the shock or tread load or vandalism-related damage.
