New systems for project planning:
Integrated washplace functions
Alape has a long tradition of adapting products to customer wishes. In addition, the manufacturer of top quality bathroom furnishing products now offers new systems so that architects and planners can make specific additions of individual functions or whole function packages to the existing components of the Alape product range. The result is a washplace coordinated to the room concept.
"Alape as an architecture brand develops products and services arising from the requirements of creative room design", says Jürgen Kloss, responsible for design and product management at Alape. And he adds: "This is why we give priority to developing systemic solutions. With products that fit together in technical and formal respects and facilitate the design of an individually planned washplace." The large number of possible variations is part of a carefully tended assortment consisting of structural elements that can be combined at will.
Alape's modular systems A1 to A4 give architects and planners new design options where the interfaces are already defined between basin, base plates and functional add-ons, also for semi-public areas. To this end, use is made of the structural cavities within the washstands and installations in order to integrate functional elements such as paper towel dispensers, towel holders and disposal systems. This makes it much simpler and less time-consuming to plan and implement washplaces that are coordinated to the room concept. The advantages of the Alape component system with its structural variety of forms, materials and surfaces are thus also made available to architects and planners involved in semi-public building projects. The Alape systems produce holistic installations that permit the greatest possible variability in the design phase, together with the greatest possible technical safety once the project is being put into effect.
What's more, Alape has also continued work in developing the system wall together with its product partners. This permits the plane, aesthetically discerning integration of a washplace and its surrounding functions in the architecture of a room. The system wall takes account of the technical interfaces of modern architecture. This creates freedom of design for the architects, while being economical and efficient at the same time.
