Facades

Facades treated with FN ® functional coatings

For the last ten years, FN® functional coatings have been appliced to  a number of facades, roofs, walls, fences and other surfaces. Here are the outcomes to view.


Municipality Administrative building, Praha-Čakovice, on Cukrovarská street.

Location: Praha – Čakovice
Treated: Front wall, facing street
Reason: Ensuring long-term protection of the house facade against dirt deposits and microbiological attack by mold and algae.                                                                                                            Notes: The facade was damaged by deep contamination and had to be painted with a facade paint after washing to remove mold and other contaminants. Later, FN-NANO protective technology was applied.

Location: Nová Bystřice
Treatment: Facade

Landmark protected house, Rašínovo nábřeží, stret Prague, Czech Republic

Location: Prague, Rašínovo nábřeží
Treated: Facade
Reason: Ensuring long-term protection of the newly insulated facade of a historically protected dwelling house and microbiological attack.

 

Notes: The aim of applying FN coatings was primarily to protect against soot deposition and other dirt from intensive car traffic in the city center. Strong photocatalytic effect and specific FN coating layer morphology allow easy rinsing of dirt from the facade surface. (Photo – surface detail of the facade: Even a few drops of rain effectively “push” dust particles off the facade surface without sticking to it. More rain will ensure complete cleansing)


Apartment house, Letovská street, Prague - Letňany

Location: Prague 8
Treated: Facade
Reason: The thermally insulated facade was heavily damaged by pollution from the build-up of atmospheric dirt and microbiologically attacked by mold and algae from the other side of the house (adjacent to the garden). After application of FN-NANO protection, the surface was coated.

Apartment complex, Prague 8

Location: Prague 8
Treated: Insulated apartment building
Reason: Protection against attack by microorganisms (molds and algae to ensure that they do not grow on the facade). Long-term active surface protection against soot deposits and dirt scattered in the air – the sticky components of dirt are distributed with the help of daylight energy and the rest of the dust removes rain and wind. Vertical surfaces have remained clean for a period of 10 years time.


Víceúčelový House (flats and offices), Prague 10-Michle

Místo: Prague 10 – Michle, Na Sychrově street

FN ® functional test coat areas


Barrandov Walls, sound barriers

Our most visible reference is Barrandov Barriers at the highway exit to Pilsen. Hundreds of thousands of motor vehicles pass by every day. Even after 6 years in this extremely contaminated environment, the wall maintains a fresh look and, moreover, the air for the inhabitants of the adjacent Barrandov housing estate have cleaner air. Darker squares within the colored areas indicate untreated areas of the wall to highlight where it is working.
