Shopping in a special atmosphere

In shopping centres, supermarkets, or shops, the focus is not just on the mere presentation of goods. Rather, customers should be offered a special atmosphere that invites them to linger. Whether it is cooling pipes, sprinkler piping systems, potable water applications, or efficient and invisible heating and cooling systems, aquatherm products are tailored to the specific needs of commercial buildings and can be individually adapted to the wishes of customers.

Kölbl Car dealership

Unterschleißheim, Germany

High ceilings and spacious sales areas are great for open-floorplan retailers, but not so great for energy costs. For this reason, Kölbl, a third-generation family-owned car dealership in Unterschleißheim (Bavaria), strove for energy-savings when renovating the building. The solution for Kölbl took the form of a combined heat and power plant and several adsorption chillers. All piping used in the technical centre was carried out with aquatherm blue pipe, which supports the efficiency of the system.

VitraHaus

Weil am Rhein, Germany

The VitraHaus in Weil am Rhein is located on the campus of the world-famous furniture manufacturer Vitra. Designed by architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, “The Stacked House” fascinates both with its eccentric construction and the quality of the interiors. This unique building is where Vitra’s collections live.

The spectacular building and its many visitors are well protected by a sprinkler system with plastic sprinkler pipes made of aquatherm red pipe. With aquatherm’s help, VitraHaus was awarded the “Sprinkler Protected” quality seal for outstanding fire protection.
