ENAMEL IN ARCHITECTURE
In order to achieve the right balance between the talents of the architects involved and the requirements of the project manager, enamelled steel is used to clad the outsides of buildings, enabling them to stay young forever.
Promoting the town
Enamel is the perfect material for communication purposes, owing to its everlasting readability and its vast range of decorative possibilities. What’s more, over the past few years there has been a renewed interest in architectural enamel on the part of space managers.
Enamelled steel possesses all the qualities required to be used when designing buildings, irrespective of the sector: residential, industrial or commercial.
In addition, the creative use of enamel panels provides a way of stressing the identity of a given location through colour and design.
Why enamel ?
Owing to its resistance to wear and tear, to chemical and atmospheric impact and to fire, enamelled steel is particularly well-suited for use in designing fittings or art installations for public spaces.
More than 100 years of expertise
Enamel work has been a core activity of the Signaux Girod group since it was founded in 1905. At the turn of the century, the name Girod began to appear on headstones and clock faces, as well as on house numbers and road signs. In the modern day, it can be found in the signs used in stations of the Paris public transport network and in cultural, leisure and tourist hotspots.
