In recent years, metal roofs have gained more and more in importance in architecture as they allow attractive roof geometries and therefore unusual usage options. The sports trained in the Cambridge Sports Centre require different hall ceiling heights. To optimally balance the different height requirements, the 5,000m² roof was arched and scalled. The top of the steel beams was covered with one layer of trapezoidal steel sheet and a vapour barrier, followed by LINITHERM PAL OSB sloped-roof insulating elements with a thickness of only 135mm.

Built in 1865 in the Renaissance Revival style, Klein Trebbow Castle is idyllically situated on the shores of Lake Trebbow, Germany. The storage building, which was built at the end of the 19th century and belongs to the historical castle complex, also changed owners. In the case of the storage building in small Trebbow, we had the task of creating a slender roof structure to comply with the conservation status while building contractor and preservationists wanted a visible roof structure with white ceilings. An all-in-one-process—insulation and an inside that can be painted, plastered or wallpapered.
The ideal ceiling insulation system for gymnasiums, storage facilities, and production halls. The visible facing of the PUR/PIR insulating core with its aluminum film consists of white-coated chipboard, which makes the panels practically indestructible. This is particularly advantageous in gymnasiums and in rooms with higher demands on surface strength.
