Architecture is essentially the sense of expression, the ability to define ourselves within our environment, within time and within the culture and character of our surroundings.
Qbiss One from Trimo is a true enabler of architectural expression, a five-in-one concept that brings a systems approach to the building envelope by uniting the functional advantages of a high quality facade with the added benefit of outstanding aesthetics. Add the company’s unique ArtMe surface design treatment to the sophisticated package and the only limit to expression is imagination.
Developed to be highly technologically advanced, Qbiss One is self-supporting. This means that it does not require any additional substructure, bringing savings in cost, time and raw-materials to present a genuine alternative to conventional built-up systems.
Qbiss One comprises a modular facade element with sealing and fixing components, flashing, corner details and even windows. However, it is the panel’s distinctive rounded corner (no cuts or folds), developed in response to architectural demands, that differentiates it from conventional systems. Aesthetics are enhanced with its ‘shadow joint’ where longitudinal and transverse joints are optically of the same width, which gives it a modern, minimalistic character.
Functionality is also critical. Qbiss One has integrated fire protection, tested to the highest standards and confirmed by world-wide certificates across all the countries in which it is sold. The highest levels of insulation are achieved with no thermal bridges as the insulation is already integrated into the vertical joint. No moisture can build up during assembly as the thermal insulation is protected with steel sheets and thermal conductivity is maintained.
Colourful facade at East Blackburn Learning Community
ArtMe is a Red Dot Award winning product and the ideal partner of Qbiss One. This high technology facade surface treatment allows all kinds of shapes, patterns, or visual effects to be expressed on the external envelope to dramatic effect. From simple logos to more complex designs, which can encompass a wide range of pictures and patterns, the facade becomes, in effect, an extension of creative thinking, and the building an unlimited palette of creative expression.
ArtMe is non-penetrating, therefore it does not damage the facade, or affect its life or durability, thus ensuring all product guarantees and warranties are preserved. Combine Qbiss One, the ultimate sustainable envelope solution, with ArtMe, and buildings spring to life with unique vibrancy and character.
The new McLaren Production Centre at Woking, designed by Foster + Partners, features a specially customised facade solution that reflects the sleek and highly engineered character of the building
A specially customised version of Trimo’s Qbiss One was used at the new McLaren Production Centre in Woking, designed by Foster + Partners. The outcome is a professional, functional, interior and exterior facade solution that responds to the character of the building and the concept developed by the architects. Trimo, now a McLaren Technology Centre Partner, was able to demonstrate the same commitment to excellence as McLaren, with both the boundaries of innovation and technology without compromise. The Qbiss One system is defined by performance, aesthetics and precision engineering, qualities that deliver a seamless pairing of form and function. These ambitions are also shared by McLaren and are crucial to the success of both organisations.
