Expert discussion: General building approval for GKD metal fabrics

"A quality hallmark for everyone involved in construction projects."

With the first general building approval (abZ) for metal fabric, leading international technical weavers GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG (GKD) is once again setting standards. From now on, the company’s metal fabric façades, ceilings, and fall guards no longer require case-by-case approval (ZiE). Three of the most popular fabric types – the spiral mesh ESCALE, as well as the two cable meshes TIGRIS and OMEGA – are now classed as regulated products with the accompanying mounting fixtures and can therefore be used throughout Germany in line with state building codes. Set against the background of the enormous time and cost input required to receive general building approval (abZ), GKD invited high level expert representatives to discuss the work associated with this approval, its significance, and its future role.
