SYSTEXX Active Magnetic M22, the magnetically active glass fleece, makes it quick and easy to transform walls into presentation areas – all without rails, panels or magnetic paint. This special wall covering was used to post tourist information in Regensburg’s historical town hall.
The original situation: Confusing tourist information boards
The old town hall in Regensburg, a late gothic patrician building dating back to the 13th century, serves as the office of the Lord Mayor and part of the city’s administration. Today’s tourist information office was integrated into the building complex during the mid 1960s. Since then, visitors have come to this office to obtain information about Regensburg and the city’s events. Posters and announcements are hung in the entrance area. These pieces of paper often used to fall off the wall and did not really fit in with the overall neat appearance of the area. The entrance area was redone in 2011. “For the walls we wanted something functional, neat and inconspicuous,” said Florian Gebauer, the architect commissioned.
The solution: SYSTEXX Active Magnetic M22
The 20-square-meter wall was turned into an unobtrusive presentation area using SYSTEXX Active Magnetic M22. The entirely smooth fleece is equipped with a magnetically active back so that magnets adhere directly to the wall covering. Flyers and posters can be neatly arranged and updated quickly. M22 has many uses and is also suitable for conference rooms and offices, for example.
The result: Functional and attractive
Thumbtacks and bulletin boards have been banished in Regensburg. The result is a practical surface which is both uniform and safe. The M22 surface is not conductive which means that further transmission of electricity due to so-called fault or leakage current is impossible. The use of cell phones and WLAN is not affected. “We are very happy with Vitrulan’s magnetic fleece! If not much information has to be posted, the walls remain clean. If many posters have to be hung on the wall, these can be arranged neatly,” says Michaela Fichtl, Department Head of the Regensburg Tourismus GmbH, approvingly.
