The Alsatian branch of Architecture du Bois - terrasses grad™ has just completed an extraordinary project: the refurbishment of the exterior and outdoor area of the cafeteria of a major European institution in Luxembourg City, using 1600m² of decking.
This extraordinary project was not a straightforward one, with specifications dictating a total absence of bolts, perfect stability of the wood, proven environmental performance (all wood needed to be certified) and at a 25-year warranty. In addition, the structure had to be suitable for public use and be strong enough to allow the circulation of window cleaning vehicles.
The specification expert concluded that the company grad™, with its fastening system the JuAn® clip, offered the most benefits and guarantees. Totally invisible, the JuAn® clip also maintains space between the boards and the structure and thus, ensures optimal ventilation of the terrace. Most importantly, the JuAn® clip allows dismantling of the boards using a single key, a major innovation in outdoor decking.
For this project, grad™ chose to use Kebony Radiata due to its outstanding dimensional stability and durability and 30 years warranty. Produced from Radiata Pine, Kebony is from the latest generation of modified wood products with outstanding performances and environmentally friendly credentials.
