Near Basel, Switzerland, the Rehberger Weg is a trail that connects the Fondation Beyerler in Riehen with the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. It links two countries and offers a unique experience in the midst of nature and art. The 24 sculptures—24 stops along the trail—were created by Germany artist Tobias Rehberger.
Designed for the public space, the sculptures are both public and private in their very nature. They attempt to meet the requirements of the community without losing sight of the needs of the individual—for example, with a park bench. Sculptures that are designed for public spaces also need to be made of durable, weather-resistant materials, satisfy strict safety requirements, and at the same time be so appealing that people actually want to experience them.
All of these factors had to be taken into consideration for the implementation, in particular because the application needed to be long-lasting and weather-resistant. For these reasons, we used two specially developed components that meet the artist’s requirements as well as the normative standards for road markings in public spaces.
Abrasion, also known colloquially as wear and tear, describes the degeneration of surfaces from grinding, rolling, hitting, scratching, chemical, or thermal stresses.
carapax offers effective, durable, and cost-effective protection against early wear on all surfaces.
The use of carapax protects not only against mechanical wear but the protective coating is also resistant to acids, bases, organic wastes and other liquid chemical substances.
Corrosion damage affects almost all areas of infrastructure, from highways, bridges, and buildings to ships, oil and gas pipelines, chemical systems and water or wastewater lines. Such damage doesn’t result in significant economic losses, but rather pose a threat to public safety and the environment. Supply interruptions and plant downtime as well as extensive repairs result in significant financial expenses.
With the use of carapax, we stop the premature loss of value in systems, components, and buildings that comes from corrosion.
We guarantee effective, durable, and cost-efficient protection from a wide variety of the effects of corrosion.
Water penetration into substrates causes significant damage to the building structure. Protecting buildings and surfaces with an effective coating is one of the traditional areas of use for carapax. All of our coating systems are suitable for ensuring effective protection of the substrate from moisture.
Applied as a coating to flat roofs, basements, pools, or foundations, we always offer the right solution depending on individual circumstances, stresses, and physical requirements.
Applied as a non-slip coating, carapax offers not only protection against knocks and impacts, but it also ensures that all transported goods stay in their place.
In logistics or cargo, carapax protects the usable areas of trailers, trucks, and transporters. In addition, our system also extends the service life of transport boxes, pallets, and other loading systems.
carapax offers not only protective coatings but also coatings for thermal and sound insulation. This MID system is used for thermal insulation in roof trusses, facades, or floors in housing construction. The space to be insulated is filled in a dimensionally stable, complete, and gapless manner. This minimizes heat loss and damaging condensation is completely prevented.
In addition to thermal insulation, the system also meets all requirements for the properties of an excellent sound insulation because the stability and flexibility of the material remains throughout the entire service life.
carapax also meets the requirements for fire safety protection of Class E, is mold and mildew resistant, and has better insulation values than commercial insulation.
