GRATING TECHNOLOGY

AZ Sint Maarten

After five years of intensive construction, the brand new Sint Maarten hospital in Mechelen was commissioned on 15 October 2018. This prestigious BIM construction project was supported by numerous construction partners, and the indispensible partnership of Staco as grating manufacturer. A beautiful project in which various grating applications can be found.

After five years of intensive construction, the brand new Sint Maarten hospital in Mechelen was commissioned on 15 October 2018. This prestigious BIM construction project was supported by numerous construction partners, and the indispensible partnership of Staco as grating manufacturer. 

The first Staco gratings in this project are immediately noticeable when entering the emergency entrance. It contains 250m² of hot-dip galvanised pressed gratings, type RK 30-2 mesh size 33x33, mounted as a ceiling application. All gratings were recessed commensurable to the ceiling contours, so that the square meshes would merge into one another as a whole.

The outside of the complex also has several patios that serve as roof terraces. They contain more than 1,150m² of hot-dip galvanised gratings, type RR 30-2 mesh size 33x33, placed on tile supports. In many places, the gratings were covered with white pebbles to create the illusion of an inner garden, so that the gratings act as a floating foundation on top of the roofing.

The façades of the new building stand out thanks to their abstractly designed awnings. These awnings hide thousands of narrow walkway gratings type RR 30-2 mesh size 33x33, which serve as a walkway for cleaning the windows.
Energy-friendly techniques were also emphasised on a technological and ecological level. Numerous HVAC techniques are gradually incorporated, from the basement to the roof. In amongst the many installation spaces, you will find hot-dip galvanised gratings that are designed to facilitate mechanical maintenance.

In addition, it also gives a good impression of the possible applications the same types of grating can offer, and the ecological concept is nicely linked to our LEAN production process.
