Aesthetic timber frame as optical highlight
The new building of the Üllö Piac market stands out from afar thanks to its light, open and modern architecture. Highlight is the characteristic spruce wood support construction, which combines with the white rendered façade to set a special accent. In the roof area the intelligently arranged timber laths also provide the function of permanent sun protection. In the process, they harmonise perfectly with the tempered glass sheets installed in the roof. To protect the irregular plywood sheet construction against extreme climatic influences with summer temperatures of over 40 C° and strong UV radiation as well as increasing heavy rain events, a coating was required that satisfied these requirements. Tibor Szakacs, responsible consultant at Dörken, explains: “The sheet plywood meant that an open-pore, water-repellent timber protection was called for. This is the only way to keep water absorption low and prevent flaking. In addition, it was also important for the material to be simple to work in the course of the regular renovation coatings required, without the need for extensive sanding.” Finally, there was also an explicit request of the building owner: the coating of the timber elements should be undertaken with a premium, German-made product.
Long-lasting protection against moisture and UV radiation
The choice therefore fell on the solvent-based DELTA® Hydrostop plus 9.04 timber protection oil in the “Light Oak” colour. The practical one-pot system is highly water and grime resistant and also offers UV protection impregnation as well as integrated timber protection. The special protective film prevents excessive swelling and shrinking of the timber components under water or moisture conditions - thereby significantly reducing susceptibility to cracking and infestation. In the course of the work the surface was firstly prepared with light sanding and the removal of dust. This was followed by the application of two coats to the 800 m² timber surface. During processing, the DELTA® Hydrostop plus 9.04 was characterised in particular by the long surface workability. This enabled undesirable and unsightly overlapping to be avoided, even with larger surface areas. The result: an even, premium appearance. The timber protection oil also proved itself to be highly economical. Tibor Szakacs explains: “Thanks to the 2-in-1 solution, we were able to dispense with the need for a timber primer. This led to savings in both material and working time. And when the time comes for the next renovation, everything can be done very quickly, as is can be applied directly with no requirement for time-consuming sanding work.”
A satisfying result
After completion of the work, the mayor of Üllő, Kissné Szabó Katalin, was highly satisfied with the outcome: “The new building is highly modern and user-friendly, it enhances the quality of life in our town.” The residents agree with this assessment, with the new market building immediately enjoying great popularity – not least thanks to its premium, German-made coating.
