Besides the shading of the approximately 4000 parking spaces for OCEC, Grankraft also manufactured the decorative metal screens of the main convention hall. These panels were up to 15m tall, which was a challenge for fabrication and transport.
The aluminium patterns were made using curved tubular sections and finished with a metallic polyester powder coating. The overall area of the screens was 600m². Each vertical strip was assembled out of multiple individual panels. The pattern is created by layering three individual motifs with varying thickness. The pattern of each layer is CNC cut, then overlaid and robot welded within the frame of the panel. The lighting system was also integrated in the screens both from the back and the bottom to achieve the desired lighting effect.
