Innovation Award Architecture+ Building – BAU fair in Mu-nich 2023 – Silver Award for REISSER Spacer Screw RDS

| Products

In the context of the BAU fair in Munich REISSER-Schraubentechnik GmbH took part in the Innovation Award Achitecture+ Building and was awarded on April 17th, 2023 with a “Special Mention” for its RDS system that offers a new fastener for a simple, economical and virtually thermal-bridge-free installation of rear ventilated facades.

The REISSER spacer screw RDS lets you mount rear ventilated facades quickly and easily in an economic and sustainable way on concrete and masonry. It has a general technical approval and can be used both in new buildings and for the renovation of existing buildings.

Unlike conventional screws, the REISSER spacer screw RDS has two different threads on the head and tip. The profile to be fastened (wood or aluminium) is kept at a distance by the head thread. The anchor thread in combination with the plastic frame anchor fixes the system into the exterior wall. The latter is resilient to tension and compression.

the REISSER spacer screw RDS is fully compatible with all commercially available compression-resistant or compression-soft insulation materials and profiles. As REISSER spacer screws RDS are invisibly installed and no longer accessible after installation, the fastener must be made of stainless steel (A4) as required by the directive for rear ventilated facades. The low thermal conductivity of this material also results in an almost thermal bridge-free fastening as a positive effect.

The reduction of the total number of work steps required for assembly (as the processing time is reduced by up to 50%) also leads to higher cost efficiency and therefore to a particularly economical solution.

Furthermore, the A4 spacer screw – as a connection system that is compliant with fire protection requirements – accordingly fulfils such requirements and is therefore a safe connection system for rear ventilated facades. And finally, the complete deconstructability of this system screw guarantees the 100 percent recyclability of the materials and therefore the sustainability of the product. Thanks to the push-through installation, pressure-resistant materials can be fastened just as easily as pressure-soft materials without having to be cut out in a cumbersome way. Insulation waste is therefore minimised and faulty insulation is prevented.

For the 15th time the architectural journal AIT and AIT-Dialog in cooperation with Messe München GmbH, initiated the Innovation Award Architecture+ Building during the BAU fair in Munich. The Innovation Award is intended for manufacturers of innovative products and materials for the complete contract, industrial building segment and for residential construction, as well as for architects, interior designers and designers who work in these areas and have developed associated products. Participation was open to all exhibitors at the BAU who have registered their products for the Innovation Award Architecture+ Building.

The design and architecture award is initiated to honor products that correspond to the requirements of architects to a special degree. The prize recognizes conceptual project-specific solutions and selected products, which satisfy in design and functionality. Important assessment criteria are the authenticity of materials and the variety of application. This year a total of 71 companies with 100 products are participating.

A jury of renowned architects and interior designers decided upon the winners and special mentions on April 17th, 2023, the opening day of the BAU. Four Innovation Awards, six Special Mentions and eleven Mentions were awarded. We are very proud of our performance and the receipt of the „Special Mention“ for our REISSER RDS Spacer Screw!

Unfortunately, we did not win the “Innovation Award” but this keeps us on track to look forward to developing best products for the way to make life of users easier!
