Do coloured lacquered technical doors exist? What are the possibilities?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments
Lacquered doors have been in fashion for a long time, particularly white ones, which is why many customers ask us if it is also possible to install coloured lacquered technical doors. The answer is: yes, you can and the result is extraordinary. Polishing the corporate image of brands and commercial establishments has also jumped to institutions and community facilities. Hospitals, museums, schools, transport services… any company or organisation is likely to have a powerful brand easily and quickly recognisable by their customers/users. This identification has also affected architecture and construction. Now, every construction element is susceptible to be conditioned by the brand image. Of course, doors, including technical doors, are one of these elements. In the Spigodoor catalogue of wood doors and technical doors, from the Basic Series to the acoustic doors of the Sound Series or the fire doors of the Fire Series, there are different types of finishes, including lacquered. Spigodoor has a wide variety of lacquer options adapted to any reference in the PANTONE, RAL and NCS charts. Flush doors can also be lacquered, as well as the special anti-pinch doors used in schools and kindergartens. The chromatic possibilities are as wide ranging as your imagination. At Spigogroup, we manufacture, on request, technical doors finished in lacquer in the colour of your choice. Standard manufacturing lead times for this type of finish are between 20 and 25 days.     If you liked this post about coloured lacquered technical doors, you may also be interested in:   - Elements included in the standard kits for Spigodoor laminated HPL technical doors - Wood slats, cladding and doors for wineries: the case of Zinio Bodegas Patrocinio - Veneer and technical doors at the new Logroño Nursing School - What are flush doors or integrated doors?

16 properties of Spigocompac changing room furniture

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments
Changing room furniture faces particularly harsh usage and environmental conditions. The equipment found in swimming pools, gyms and sports facilities is used daily by a large number of different people. This sports furniture performs its functions in an environment of continuous humidity and steam from showers or heated swimming pools. And, in addition, by its very nature, it is exposed to continuous cleaning which, over time, can wear down the material. The solution to these conditions is to use phenolic panel to manufacture sports furniture for changing rooms (benches, partitions, lockers and phenolic cabins). These are the 16 technical properties of Spigocompac changing room furniture made with phenolic panel:   Density ISO 1183: 1,35 gr/cm³ Resistance to surface abrasion EN 438-2, 10: ≥ 350 U Scracth resistance EN 438-2, 25: ≥ 3 Newtons Resistance to impact (ball drop) EN 438-2, 21: ≤ 10 mm Resistance to bending ISO 178: ≥ 80 MPa Flexural Modulus ISO 178: ≥ 9000 MPa Crack resistance EN 438-2, 24: 4 Lightfastness EN 438-2, 27: 4-5 escala de grises Oxygen value ISO 4589-2: ≥ 45 % Fire reaction: B-s2, d0 Cigarette burn resistance EN 438-2, 30: ≥3 Inmersion boiling water resistance EN 438-2, 12: ≤2,0 % Resistance to dry heat EN 438-2, 16: ≥4 Resistance to wet heat EN 12721: >4 Resistance to water vapor EN 438-2, 14: ≥4 Stain resistance EN 438-2, 26: ≥4   If you liked this post about furniture for changing rooms, you may also be interested in: - Changing room lockers: material combinations and lead times - School lockers are more necessary than ever - The role of phenolic cabins for companies in the new health and safety regulations - Elements included in the standard kits for Spigodoor laminated HPL technical doors

Sustainable wood cladding, more than just a fad

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Inspiration, News No Comments
The use of sustainable wood cladding is more than just a fad. Wood is one of the most in-demand building materials today, and this situation is sure to continue for a long time to come. The reason is simple, driven by new regulations, the construction sector has made a firm commitment to a more sustainable, low-energy architecture. In this setting, wood is unrivalled. According to the new Spanish Technical Building Code, enacted on 31 December 2020, all newly constructed buildings must be nearly zero-energy buildings (for public buildings it is already so since 2018). This measure aims to significantly reduce the energy impact of buildings, which in Europe account for 40% of energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions, as well as the environmental impacts associated with building materials. Wood has a negative carbon footprint, and there is no other building material that allows us to reduce the carbon footprint of a building more significantly. Wood outperforms other materials in CO2 emissions, effect on water quality and overall environmental impact when measured over the full life cycle of the material. At Spigogroup, we manufacture panels and wood cladding made of PEFC or FSC certified sustainable wood. These certifications guarantee that the wood used comes from sustainably managed forests and that the wood panel has also been prepared by a manufacturer who guarantees that a PEFC or FSC chain of custody system is maintained right through to the end product. In this way, we contribute to a new way of building with a lower carbon footprint, that is more sustainable and better for everyone.       .
