Electronic reseller Expert chose our aluminum mesh and cassette facade for the company building.
Aluminum mesh and cassette facade
Alupro’s projects include an electronic reseller Expert’s store in Vantaa, Finland, which is a commercial building built in the early 1980s. Now the building facades needed modernizing. Expert’s facades were old-fashioned when several newer commercial buildings were completed around the store.
Alupro acted as the main contractor and was responsible for the facade reform. “We work in such projects mainly as a subcontractor for major construction companies, but in recent years, we have also carried out major works on suitable sites,” says Alupro Project Director Heikki Raumanni. Alupro’s deal included some 300 square meters of powder-coated aluminum mesh and 600 square meters of facade cassettes.
A new look for the building
The new facades were fixed to a wall structure. Some of the former structures were demolished, and partly an additional bearing steel frame was built. “All facade structures were fastened to the inner shell and old structures were also reinforced,” Raumanni explains.
“New facades bring a new look to the building,” Raumanni estimates. “Aluminum is suitable for a wide variety of facades, both as a boost and as a whole facade.”
Alupro supplies mesh facades from aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel and acid-proof steel. For example, an acid-proof steel mesh was installed in the facade of UPM headquarters, completed in 2014.

Cassette facade can be used for new construction or for renovation projects. The cassettes are suitable for horizontal or vertical application on low to high rise buildings, for both new and refurbishment projects. Cassettes offer an innovative facade solution that provides a modern and flat appearance.
Facade cassettes enable using various materials, colors and sizes to establish a diverse facade. It is possible to create systems by choosing different cassette sizes, different joint sizes and cassette depths. The measurements and solutions for cassettes are made in accordance with requests made depending on a certain project.
