The aesthetic façade profile Arguin charms by its pleasing shapes, achieved by tightly woven micro-bending.

A design which is perfectly suited to the latest architectural trends, highlighting the areas of relief and depth.

The decorative envelope can be applied for façades, roofings or indoor walls. Made in elements of 2650x550 maximum, the height of the ribs is 7mm.


Length: 3950 mm max.

The shape of the waves does not permit any vertical joints, in order to preserve the continuity of the façade, partitions have to be installed.
Height of the waves: 7 mm
Loads: 10 kg/m² in steel 10/10 and 3,5 kg/m² in aluminium 10/10.

For stainless steel with elastic limits below  320N/mm² allowable loads should be reduced  proportionnally.
