URBAN, NATURinFORM’s new patio deck, emphasises architecture without being obtrusive. Naturinform developed this new patio deck for architects and building owners looking to extend modest, state-of-the-art architecture, and modern life to outdoors. From January, „Urban“ is available in five quiet natural shades, with a finely grained, smoothly brushed surface.
„While developing „Urban“, we looked very closely at the current architectural trends, and additionally were inspired by modern life-styles“, says Pia Hobeck, Head of Marketing at Naturinform. „The zeitgeist is definitely heading towards functional, straight cubatures, partially with visible facades, to create enclosed spaces. Based on this, we developed a patio deck to match the buildings‘ characteristics. It’s quiet, finely grained surface and natural colours extend the style of living to the outside, as well.“
Quiet colours, modelled on nature
Whether brutalistic architectural concrete, light wooden cladding, white-washed Bauhaus cubes, metal facades with a matte, bronze or gold sheen, red-brick walls, dark shaded, or even gigantic window fronts – using the new shades that Naturinfom modelled on natural materials, you can find a suitable deck. Gravel, linen, sisal, clay and tabacco match the current interior design colour trends. If you are looking for a specific shade, Naturinfom offers – as with all its other products – special production in a suitable (special) colour edition.
Puristic surface with a slim joint gap
The innovate deck cross section and a new laying aid – which was already successfully introduced with our „Exclusive“ deck – enables a joint gap of a mere 5 millimetres. To ensure the optimally laid 5-millimetre gap, there are laying aids in the delivery scope.
The deck that can be laid on one side is ca. 160 millimetres wide. Therefore, only 6 running metres of material are required to lay one square metre, creating a weight of around 22.8 kilogrammes on one square metre. „Urban“ is available at dealers in the standard lengths of 3,4,5, and 6 metres from January. Naturinform can provide special lengths between 2 and 13 metres on request for special projects. The deck flooring for outdoor areas is extremely durable, simple to lay and, in addition, low maintenance. You only need water to clean them; should they be badly soiled, you can use a high pressure cleaner. As well as being very quick to lay, they are also weather resistant, highly slip-resistant, and really easy to take care of, all decisive criteria for a Naturinform deck.
Sustainable material, produced CO2 neutrally
The Franconian company NATURinFORM, renowned for 20 years for its high-quality and weather-proof products made of wood composite material, produces exclusively in Germany. Since the end of 2019 even climate-neutrally, as certified by the TÜV NORD. POPULAR massive, as all of NATURinFORM’s products, is made of an innovative, robust wood composite material, that is produced at a ratio of 70 to 30 of wooden fibres from domestic forestry and an environmentally-friendly, pure polymer. The company has set high standards for both material qualities, as well as the sustainablity of their products. Thus, only PEFC-certified wood from environmentally-cultivated forests is processed. The polymers used are, of course, also environmentally-friendly. Sustainability also determines the profiles‘ maintenance: The innovative material requires no further care, such as varnish or oil, during its long lifetime. This means that no solvents or chemical substances need to be applied.
