The following information will provide some insights into the quality and pricing of our Color Dämmstein grille-system, including an overview of the thermal, acoustic and ecological advantages.
For delivery within all countries of the EEA, the Color Dämmstein system is provided with a CE label. It’s quality was tested by the “German Institute for Structural Engineering”, from which it received an A1 Certificate (Deutsche Bauaufsichtliche Zulassung) Nr: Z-33.46-623. This institution, next to other associations such as Komo in Brussels, is part of the European Certification Commission en the EOTA. Together they determine the content of the European certificates on an European level. The system is also provided with the German “U-Zeichen” (Ubereinstimmungscertificat UEZ 09 -092).
All requirements of the European regulations, which are necessary for the DoP (declaration of performance), are fully met.
– Mechanical resistance and stability
– Fire safety
– Hygiene, health and environment
– Usage safety and accessibility
– Protection against noise
– Energy savings and heat retention
– Sustaining use of natural resources
– Reuse cradle to cradle
The Color Dämmstein Grille-system consists of:
– Our exclusively developed and produced mineral insulation (Rc values fully aligned to requests)
– System-adhesive to put up insulation
– System-screw anchors with insulation holders
– System-adhesive to apply brick slips to the grille
– System-joint mortar
To achieve an Rc value of 2.88, you need to have a 100mm system thickness + system-brick slips.
The gross price is € 95,- per m2.Discounts are available on request, depending on a number of factors.
For higher Rc values the surcharge will amount to € 4,- (net) per m2 for 10mm thicker or thinner vice-versa.
The Brick Slips
Traditional finishing, energy-conscious construction and the key to perfect insulation shell.
The special adhesive, part of the certified product, is used to attach the brick slips and corner slips to the grille. The dimensions are already indicated on the insulation system.
Prices of the brick slips depend on the type of brick you wish to use. As system manufacturer, we produce over 2000 different types and colours. The gross price ranges from €16,- to €40,- per m². The brick slips have to meet various strict quality requirements.
Our factory produces and delivers a range of rare and highly exclusive brick slips in many formats. Production can be completely tuned and adapted to your wishes an requests. Our brick slips are sawn from real bricks or directly produced as wire cut brick slips.
We do not use synthetic brick slips on our CDS-system. This is due to the fact that synthetic bricks have a different expansion coefficient compared to mineral bricks (and mineral wool). Traditionally, our ceramic bricks are made from real clay and baked at 1050 – 1150 degrees. Baked bricks are colourfast and UV-resistant.
The Color Dämstein Grille-system takes up less space, because no cavity walls or large stones thicker than 100mm are needed anymore.
The minimal insulation thickness of the system is 50mm + brick slips.
It therefore decreases the construction area and frees up additional space , which can amount to significant cost savings in areas such as cities where property prices are high.
Other advantages in terms of savings:
– A1 fireproof saves insurance costs and lives
– No smoke development during fire
– No need to incorporate lintels or other wall supports
– No foundation needed
– Ergonomically favourable (i.a. no heavy pallets and piles of mortar)
– Cheaper work force (no expensive mason needed)
The mineral insulation has a standing flexible fibre and tensions are hardly transferred towards the stone front. This is among others dependent on the insulation thickness.
– Renovation and new construction
– High thermal insulation
– Passive construction
– Broad assortment of colours, formats and structures
– High system-reliance
– Expert advice
– Sustainable (Ecological and contemporary construction materials)
– High sound absorption
– Fireproof and no smoke development
– Vapour permeable, no mould development
Demolition and Reuse
Cradle to Cradle
The screw anchors are made of RVS and all other system components are mineral and can be reused as masonry granulate. Product waste can be reused after construction/instalment.
XPS as perimeter insulation
For water pressured areas (balcony underground connections) where no water vapour is allowed to escape, we use XPS-grille plates. This perimeter insulation is also provided with a modular grid system which connects to the mineral grille plate.
Our mineral A1 grille-insulation plate is vapour permeable and at the same time water resistant. This prevents mould growth.
The system is specially developed for wooden frame and steel frame constructions. It is mostly used on mineral surfaces.
Compared to our product, EPS and UP-plates are (almost completely) damp proof and therefore susceptible to moisture and mould .
Thickness: from 50mm to 200mm (on request also thicker available). Rc value > 2.8 at 100mm and >5.4 at 200mm.
Installation and construction costs are highly dependent on the type of building. On average, the costs amount to 1 or 2 hours per m² x hour tariff.
We offer a complete installation solution, but also offer to assist external workers or local contractors during construction. Especially in countries with few masons or low wages this implies convenient and cheap construction.
Prefab is also possible. We’ve offered this solution to several customers and gained experience throughout the years.
The CDS-system has been continuously developed and adapted to current requirements throughout the past 40 years (British Board of Agreement).
In terms of maintaining quality our motto is “prevention is better than recovery”. Due to our certification, we have the obligation to control and verify that all activities are performed according to the rules during construction, independent of whomever is constructing.
Made in the Netherlands
A long time ago… started 40 years ago in Germany and then reallocated to the Netherlands, we represent the oldest and most experienced brick/insulation system. Moreover, we are the proud winner of the “Award for Enterprise” bestowed upon us by the British Dutch Chamber of Commerce.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about our products. We are happy to inform and advise you about the possibilities.
