January 2020 - Bergen op Zoom now has a new four-storey police station at the Zuid-Oostsingel location. The building was designed by Van Pelt architects to be almost energy neutral (BENG). It has a 'green' roof with 500 solar panels, LED lighting and a system for the delayed drainage of rainwater. The building will be heated and cooled with groundwater using an underground thermal system.
The main supporting structure for this building was produced and supplied by Bentstaal from IJsselstein. Bentstaal also fitted Staco louvre gratings to the partition panels for the car park, the annex with technical facilities and the bike shelter.
Staco type RL louvre gratings
Staco louvre gratings are made of a sturdy mesh of bearing bars and cross bars of strong strip steel. The slat bars are placed at an angle of 45º to reduce transparency and safeguard privacy.
The Staco louvre gratings go through the Rotocoat Duplex system: hot-dip galvanising followed by twin powder coating in RAL 9011. The graphite black powder coating gives the louvre gratings a stylish look. In addition, the combination of galvanising and powder coating offers the best possible protection in the fight against steel corrosion. So these Staco louvre gratings are a perfect match for this sustainable police station.
