Render without compromises
In a place where quality and sustainability play a decisive role, no compromises are allowed. "Providing a pleasant environment for employees and enabling an enjoyable and unhindered shopping experience is an absolute priority," explains Ingrid Heinz, the spokeswoman for MPreis. „A flexible and efficient rendering technique, which optically meets the store’s criteria, is especially important to us, ” adds Heinz. In the new MPreis branch office on Museum Str. 20, which saw its grand opening in mid-October, a new type of ceiling is explored. The concrete ceiling was rendered with a gypsum-based fire protection plaster Knauf Vermiplaster. It was developed especially for passive fire safety of the interior. Knauf Vermiplaster ensures the bearing capacity of the rendered structure in the event of a fire, with a 90 minute fire resistance. The company Bugla Bau applied eight tons of Knauf fireproof plaster Vermiplaster in three days, finishing up with mineral paints.
