Scuffs, coffee stains, cigarette burns… the walls along the platforms in Germany’s railway and suburban railway stations endure a lot. They have to be extremely durable, stable, resistant to moisture and weathering, and easy to clean. Their coverings and claddings need to be able to be replaced in the shortest time possible – in the event of damage, for example – in order to avoid or reduce downtimes in transport operations. And last but not least, the claddings must be so adaptable that they last on a wide variety of surfaces and can be adapted to all grids and conditions.
The outdated wall cladding at Frankfurt Airport’s regional railway station has now been replaced with a combination of AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor with a cladding made of glass, thought to be a much better long-term solution for the station.
