A 40-year functional warranty
Façade panels from STENI have the best functional warranty on the market – 40 years!
“Moon Car” – both toy and test tool.
Buildings where active kids gather every day must be able to withstand all the abuse from the children’s fun and games.
We had the idea because we had previously experienced Eternit fibre cement panels just cracking under the strain of the children’s daily play, where – among other things – they had driven into the walls with their “Moon Car” go-karts that most kindergartens have.Anette Kaae Bødker, Project Manager in Køge Municipality’s Building Department
Tough “façade testers”.
STENI set up a test wall and, after quite some time, Anette Kaae Bødker and her colleagues checked how the façade had held up.
“We urged the children, teachers, and other adults to drive into the wall to see what it could tolerate. Of course, the children thought it was great fun, as they are normally not allowed to ‘crash’ into the walls. The wall was also exposed to a lot of other strains like ball games, mud-throwing, etc.,” tells Anette Kaae Bødker.
The black and green curved façade at “Børnehuset Valhalla” is holding up well.
The STENI panels passed the test, and the Building Department was pleased with the results. So, naturally, they chose STENI façade panels.
And the kindergarten’s black and green curved façade is still holding up well, despite being the “workplace” of more than 140 children and adults every day.
A typical “Moon Car”.
