Perfectly prepared for the chilly season with Zambelli

10/11/2021| As collection devices, gutters and similar products are continuously exposed to the weather. Falling leaves are a major problem for gutters in particular. Water is unable to drain off unhindered once the gutter is clogged and will inevitably seek an alternative route. For instance, overflowing rainwater could penetrate the masonry via the attachment points on the downpipe, causing considerable damage in the process. Puddles and black ice might also form in the area of the downpipe. The roof drainage specialist Zambelli has various solutions in its portfolio to ensure unhindered drainage.

The new RIB-ROOF acoustic roof from Zambelli catches the eye with its functionality and look

28/10/2021 | Imbuing a single-family home with special charisma takes more than just architecture and design. Comfort is another important factor for its inhabitants. This includes, above all, consistent protection against noise of any kind. Zambelli’s latest innovation – the RIB-ROOF acoustic roof – is optimised to reduce the noise of rainfall and is fitted here to a semi-detached house in Bad Salzuflen.

Zambelli has innovative systems for the collection of precipitation in the garden

The company’s drainage systems deliver innovative solutions for optimal water collection and promote the efficient use of natural, freely available resources.

For the sports hall in Mintraching

30/06/2021 | Sustainability, environmental responsibility and manageable costs: reconciling these requirements is not always easy within municipal construction. A prime example of how it can be done is the sports hall in the large town of Mintraching in the district of Regensburg/Bavaria. It is located about 15 km south-east of the regional centre of Regensburg. The community’s location means that popular sports traditionally play a major role in all parts of social life, in addition to school sports events. Town representatives are now extremely proud that a modern hall made of regional softwoods has been constructed for school and club sports in just 13 months. The icing on the cake of the sports facility is its full RIB-ROOF by Zambelli, which has been partially covered with a green roof structure.

The housing complex comprises a total of 18 flats with floor space of between 50 and 80 m². A total of 1,200 m² of Zambelli RIB-ROOF 465 profile sheets were used for the roofing as well as the façade cladding.

DICTUM company headquarters beneath a RIB-ROOF aluminium roof

09/04/2021 | The small town of Plattling in Lower Bavaria is now graced by a new architectural landmark. The headquarters of DICTUM, an international company specialising in the manufacture and trade of tools, was built in an industrial estate in 2018. The building was clad with a wooden façade and covered with three side-by-side gable roofs, which are reminiscent of the Bavarian Forest peaks when viewed from a certain perspective. The company selected a RIB-ROOF metal roof from Zambelli, specifically the RIB-ROOF Speed 500 system that is particularly well-known for its quick and easy assembly.

Ice sports events beneath a RIB-ROOF aluminium roof

22/6/2020 | The small town of Raron in the Swiss canton of Valais has a lot to offer in terms of its natural environment and culture. Each year, droves of tourists flock to the town to visit the grave of the poet Rainer Maria Rilke on the castle hill. Besides this UNESCO World Heritage Site, the beautiful landscape attracts visitors from near and far. A new ice skating rink and events hall has enriched communal life since 2019. Nestled in the Rhône Valley, the Raiffeisen Arena is set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Aletsch Glacier, the largest and longest glacier expanse in the Alps. A RIB-ROOF metal roof from Zambelli was chosen to cover the ice rink, specifically the RIB-ROOF Speed 500 system, which is known for its especially quick and easy installation.

Improved product characteristics for Zambelli’s gutter hook set for sandwich panels

02/06/2020 | Zambelli delivers sustainable and technically sophisticated solutions for roofs and façades. Its most recent development in the field of roof drainage is the innovative gutter hook set for sandwich panels. This new product was successfully showcased at this year’s DACH+HOLZ International in Stuttgart and quickly developed into a crowd puller. Numerous discussions with visitors and customers prompted the manufacturer of roof drainage components to return to its test laboratories and make further improvements to the product. The gutter hook set has now been launched as a genuine problem solver.

Zambelli RIB-ROOF complete system with roof cultivation

26/05/2020 | The former textile district in the east of Augsburg was still dominated by industry until about 20 years ago. But new housing has now been built where the factory workers used to live. Today, the quarter on the other side of the river Lech is viewed as a chic, up-and-coming urban district. Many areas of the former industrial wasteland are now being used to construct new buildings for housing, retail and commerce. Terraced homes were renovated with products from Zambelli in a housing estate not far from the Glaspalast Museum. The RIB-ROOF Speed 500 system with a rear-ventilated roof structure and an Urbanscape green roof were selected for the roofing. The practical solution enables efficient installation and catches the eye with its lightweight components.

05/02/2020 | This year again, Zambelli put up its established stand concept at the DACH+HOLZ International in Stuttgart to present its products and services to a global industry audience. Besides its proven portfolio, the leading manufacturer of roof drainage, metal roof and shelving systems and the specialist in industrial metalworking had two brand new innovations up its sleeve: the gutter hook set for sandwich panels and the Thermo-Z spacer profile.

27/01/2020 | Technically sophisticated: Zambelli delivers durable solutions that are specifically tailored to the needs of tinsmiths and roofers, as well as to the design and architecture of a building. The gutter hook set for sandwich panels is the latest development from the manufacturer of roof drainage components. This practical and innovative product makes child’s play of installing the gutters.

Certain energy standards must be adhered to these days when constructing or renovating a warm roof. The Energy Efficiency Ordinance (EnEV) stipulates the maximum U-value of a building component for roof superstructures. Planners are therefore required to determine the correct relationship between legally stipulated U-values and roof construction costs. We have developed the innovative Thermo-Z spacer profile for substructures to accommodate precisely these scenarios. It ensures a reduced thermal bridge effect and comes with a special slotted perforation to enable unbeatable U-values.

Zambelli roof drainage

30/08/2018 | It gradually dawns on us that autumn has arrived in Germany, at the latest when the days become shorter than the nights or the leaves on the trees change colour. The weather can be quite uncomfortable at this time of year. It’s high time to prepare for rain, wind, clouds and storms and to check that the roof drainage system is in good working order. Let’s not forget, roof drainage plays a major role in protecting the building envelope.

Zambelli stops building envelope installation services

20/08/2018 |Seizing the future with our bare hands – this philosophy of the Zambelli brothers is still the foundation of Zambelli RIB-ROOF GmbH today. True to this motto, our company, which opened its doors in 1957 as a specialist for everything to do with metal roofs and façades, is completing its strategic transformation into a pure system supplier. This means we will focus on our core competencies going forward: the production and marketing of building envelopes and associated services. In the RIB-ROOF sector, we will therefore focus on close cooperation with architects, dealers and craftsmen. In consequence, we will discontinue all of our own installation services in the area of building envelopes as of 1 July 2018.
