Chiemsee-Shipping (DE)

The paddle wheel steamer “Ludwig Fessler”, built in 1926, is the pride of the Chiemsee-Shipping fleet. For the winter season resp. for maintenance purposes a new hall was needed for the saloon ship. The innovative Butzbach system gives the front side of the shipyard building an especially distinctive appearance.

The combination of stacking door and hinged doors to the right and left, allow a complete opening of the hall over its entire width. The adjoining upper fibreglass facade fits perfectly to the hinged doors, which are also in the colour brilliant. An interesting colour accent is achieved with the eight meter high stacking door SPACELITE in the colour emerald-green.

Aside from this door system, further facade elements as well as two stacking doors SPACELITE were installed, letting the building appear striking at night due to the translucence and creating a pleasant bright interior in the daytime due to the light transmission.

The water-permeable grilles at the door bottom of the stacking door and the hinged doors are a further specific feature, allowing an unproblematic opening and closing even when the water level is high.
