Façade design with DOGLA-TRIO 1011

We have not only looked at functionality, but also put an emphasis on aesthetics. The car park should create a harmonious connection between an airport-world and the surrounding growing areas.' Karl-Heinz Krüger, Airport Management


With over 4 million passengers annually, the Nuremberg Airport is ranked 10th amongst German airports. An ever-increasing volume of passengers at Nuremberg created the need for a new parking structure. The construction of Car Park 3 not only created new, premium parking possibilities, it also made up for 1700 ground parking spaces that were eliminated for environmental renaturation.

The new car park offers 2,150 parking spaces on 7 floors. Primarily constructed from precast-concrete panels, the 18-meter high building was built on the existing airport area on a surface of 53,000 m².

For the façade cladding, W.S. Tyler supplied more than 4,300 m² of stainless steel wire mesh type DOGLA-TRIO 1011.

Each panel is fitted with a flat tension profile and a series of clevis screws at the top and bottom. This allows the mesh to be connected to the U channel substructure and, together with the use of pressure springs at the bottom, provides the optimum tensioning for the façade.

An intermediate mounting system is provided at each level, and after tensioning, the mesh is connected to the round tubes using wire connectors.

The result is a homogeneous façade with no interruptions.
