The gorgeous industrially decorated Steam hotel in Västerås, Sweden by Lake Mälaren is protected with anti-corrosive and fire protection coating system by Teknos and Hensel.
The hotel is a former steam power plant and part of the Swedish cultural history. The 100-year-old building used to be one of the country’s biggest energy producers in the earlier days. Just until the building turned 100 years it was rebuilt into a modern hotel. The hotel is a combination of old and new, consisting of 18 floors, 227 rooms, restaurants, bars and a spa.
Teknos provided intumescent paints in co-operation with Hensel to this culturohistorically valuable building/refurbishment project.

The gorgeous industrially decorated Steam hotel is protected with intumescent paints.
Teknos' sales team found a solution to weeks of traffic disruption in central Stockholm caused by a construction site: using the correct intumescent coating for steel structures sped up the process remarkably.
Teknos’ selected range of advanced, high-performance protective coatings together with HENSOTHERM® intumescent paints form an inclusive range of paint systems for fire and corrosion protection of steel, for different environments, including both interior and exterior use, for open and closed profiles, and for corrosion-protected and galvanised sections.
