Heraklith® Wood Wool Panels offer the perfect solution for exclusive private underground parking

The German town of Neuburg an der Donau, is capital of the Neuburg- Schrobenhausen district in the state of Bavaria. The success of its many small and medium size businesses has led to a growing demand for exclusive and upmarket homes, built to exceptionally high standards and using only top materials.

The Challenge

Typical of such exclusive homes are two semi-detached houses, built with their own underground garage with parking spaces for eight vehicles. From the outside, the homes look relatively ordinary. But step inside and it is immediately apparent that they are designed for more discerning residents. The generously proportioned rooms feature state of the art services, marble floors and very high levels of comfort.

The 300 m2 underground garage with its eight parking spaces is also an unusual feature, allowing residents to enjoy direct access to their homes without stepping outside.

But it too, had to be in keeping with the aesthetics and comfort of the rest of the building. It needed to look stylish, welcoming and well-lit.

Among the technical requirements were that the garage needed to be well insulated, to avoid noise, and to prevent heat loss from the underfloor heating above. Very importantly, there needed to be a high level of fire protection.

The Solution

All criteria and specifications for the garage were met by installing Tektalan® A2-Lumax panels that are robust, non-combustible wood wool panels with a rock mineral wool insulation core. They not only offer first-class fire protection, but also provide effective insulation against heat loss and sound. LED lamps are integrated directly into the wood wool multilayer board, making any additional lighting unnecessary. They are specifically designed for optimal illumination of underground garages and the state-of-the-art LED technology ensures a maximum service life.

The presence-sensitive lights deliver up to 1,580 lm of light and can be set to colour temperatures of 3,000 k (warm white) or 4,000 k (neutral white) during installation.

The combination of non-combustible insulation cores made of rock mineral wool with non-combustible wood wool face sheets, gives the panels a building material classification of A2-s1, d0. Their αw-value of between 0.8 and 0.85, also means the Tektalan panels are absorber class B (highly absorbent) and reliably dampen engine noise or door slams.

The panels are easy to install and have a groove milled at the factory to accommodate empty conduits. Tektalan A2-Lumax L also have a cut out for a 225 x 225 mm 18W LED light. During installation, the panels are laid according to a predetermined lighting design. Special screws with structured and colour-coordinated screw heads, which blend in perfectly with the wood wool look are used for fastening.

The panels provide an extremely high-quality impression, in perfect harmony with the very high-specification materials used elsewhere in the houses.
