General building approval for mesh façades, ceilings and balustrades

GKD ensures standard-compliant planning and execution

The pioneer for holistic system solutions made of metal mesh for architecture, GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG, is once again setting new quality standards: mesh façades made of CREATIVEWEAVE architectural mesh have received the general building approval of the German Institute for Structural Engineering (DIBt). This makes them the first mesh façades to comply with the Façades section of the German Construction Products Regulation with standard compliant building products. Effective immediately, GKD metal mesh façades will no longer require approval on a case by case basis thanks to this general building approval. They guarantee applicability all over Germany, in accordance with the requirements of the state building codes. With this significant advantage in the approval process, they offer architects, installers and building owners quicker planning and realization of their façade construction projects with guaranteed compliance with building laws. The general building approval also includes interior and exterior façades as well as suspended ceilings and vertical fall protection.
