Customised production for complex sealing

Due to the construction plan, the airtight sealing was challenging for the window and façade manufacturer Gerber-Vogt AG. The products had to fit into the construction process and had to be particularly easy to use.

SIGA provided advice on the construction site. Together with the fabricator, customised solutions were developed for the construction detail. Due to the flexible production and rapid delivery, the schedule could be kept. This ensured a timely, safe and fast installation.
