New colors in agriculture: ReflectionsAgro®

ThyssenKrupp Hoesch Bausysteme GmbH is offering its AgroTec product line in a new range of colors: the roof and wall panels, specially designed for the requirements of agricultural buildings, are now also available in the ReflectionsAgro® color collection, allowing architects and building owners to blend agricultural buildings creatively into their respective environments. Like the already familiar ReflectionsOne® collection for industrial and commercial buildings, the new collection was developed in association with the color designer Friedrich Ernst von Garnier.

ReflectionsAgro® was designed for the outer face of AgroTec panels and includes five color series for wall panels and three series for roof elements. In line with the natural environment of agricultural buildings, the series are based on matched red, green and brown tones as well as sand and earth colors. Within the individual series, the basic tones are varied in carefully composed brightness values. ReflectionsAgro® can be used to create buildings whose colors are harmonious within themselves while corresponding with their natural surroundings. The panels in the ReflectionsAgro® collection have a high-quality paint coating containing special pigments. The color and gloss stability of this coating is much superior to that of common polyester coatings.

The coatings for the inside of AgroTec structural elements were developed by ThyssenKrupp Hoesch Bausysteme GmbH in collaboration with universities, chambers of agriculture and agricultural firms. The roof and wall panels are available in three agricultural protection categories. The interior coating is matched to the loads occurring in the respective type of agricultural building. Category III for example offers the greatest resistance to the acid and ammoniac influences encountered in certain animal buildings.

Agrotec roof and wall panels are quick to install and are available in six variants each tailored to different types of building to allow users freedom in their planning. AgroTec panels are supplied with different profiles and either in non-insulated form or as sandwich panels with a polyurethane rigid foam core. AgroSolar roof panels with a laminated photovoltaic film can even be used to generate electricity from solar energy. Government funding can frequently be obtained for this, opening up an additional source of income for farmers.
