Zintek presents the Study “TITANIUM-ZINC IN ARCHITECTURE”

A CULTURAL PROJECT
A WORK TOOL

Zintek presents the brand new technical-scientific study of the use of titanium zinc in architecture.

A complete guide to the design, production and installation of roofs and façades in titanium zinc.

Over 460 pages with innovative solutions, technical drawings and in-depth study of the value of metal in building shells.

A TECHNICAL-SCIENTIFIC STUDY

Knowledge as the result of experience

A unique volume for the sector that describes in detail all the stages of a project, from the engineering drawing to the development of details through to the photos of all the details installed.

Technical know-how of the design, working and application of titanium zinc turns into a range of solutions depending on the geographic area, local culture and technical and construction innovations of materials and tools.

The processing of the information is the result of years of direct experience at the work site, high level collaboration with architects and installers, technical research and laboratory tests. Elements underpinning a perfect design and an impeccable construction.

A WORK TOOL FOR DESIGNERS AND ROOFERS

A cross-disciplinary volume for architects, engineers, roofers and installers, academic and institutional world

Theoretical and practical content to understand the potential of zintek® titanium zinc better as a cladding for roofs and façades in restoration projects and in modern architecture, and as a vehicle for fundamental values like the culture of workmanship, aesthetics and durability.

THE EVOLUTION OF METAL CLADDING IN ARCHITECTURE

Descendent of an ancient tradition, a new way of building the future

The envelope of a building has taken on an increasingly important role in architectonic design.

The study provides comprehensive information about the metal cladding which in the last few decades has reached extraordinary levels of innovation, embracing sustainability and the value of the material.
