Foundation Specification

The static calculations for the dimensions of the foundations were prepared on the basis of norms EC and EN 1. During the calculations, 3 foundation sizes were selected for observation, which can be used in connection with the positioned dimensions. These are only recommendations. The calculations are only binding for the WLZ II inland wind load zone unless otherwise indicated. For zones with stronger dimensioning of winds, separate verification is required or the foundation dimensions must be generously increased. The floor should have a minimum load bearing capacity of 150 kN/m2. 

Information about Creating Foundations
To reduce the concrete mass, two individual foundations should be selected as foundation components. The foundations must have a minimum concrete strength category of C20/25, XC2 in accordance with DIN 1045-1 and be reinforced with Q 188-A concrete reinforcement. The subsidiary reinforcement consists of 2 layers R188A crosswise, concrete cover 3 cm. For concrete-cast profiles the subsidiary reinforcement consists of 2 layers R188A crosswise with ring reinforcement sleeve R188A + 2 d 10, concrete cover 3 cm. If the foundation edge is above the ground, the degree of reinforcement should be appropriately increased to avoid excessive shrinkage cracks (e.g. Q335-A). The foundation base must be routed to a frost-free depth, i.e. at least 80 cm beneath the top ground  surface, and on good bearing soil. In regions with deeper frost actions, the foundations should either be established deeper by adapting the height of the foundation or by inserting a lean concrete layer beneath the foundations. The tubular with dimensions height x width x depth (h x w x d)= 500 x 150 x 150 mm* must be encased with a C20/25 concrete (largest grain 8 mm) after adjusting the positioned. The positioners must not be assembled before the concrete early strength (5-day strength).

Data imports

Please do not send us any print designs / printing templates if you do not own the necessary rights to possess. When using a logo or trademark, you must own or obtain written permission from the owner. Please do not send us any print designs / artwork, violating human rights, containing pornographic, defamatory or abusive content.

PDF is a versatile file format that can be created with / from many different programs and can include a variety of data. Therefore, we can give no guarantee that your PDF file can be used without further adaption. This applies especially to PDF, which were not created from graphic programs. PDF from CAD programs always require a prior review.

Digital printing
We require image or vector data which you can supply to us in any of the following file formats/programs:

  •  Macromedia Freehand up to Version 11 (MX (*.fh11)
  •  Adobe Illustrator up to Version 15 (CS6) (*.ai)
  •  CorelDraw files up to Version 15 (X5) (*.cdr, *.cmx)
  •  Adobe Photoshop up to Version 12 (CS6) (*.psd)
  •  Corel PHOTO-Paint up to Version 15 (X5) (*.cpt)
  •  Adobe InDesign up to Version 7.5 (CS6) (*.indd). Include the original image data and font box or convert the characters to paths in InDesign.
  •  Open PDF files (*.pdf). Fonts used must be embedded or converted to paths before the creation of the PDF.
  •  EPS files (*.eps), TIFF files (*.tif), JPEG files (*.jpg)

All fonts used must be converted to paths/vector paths in all cases (“Convert to curves” or “Convert to path/vector path” commands) or the font box has to be included. Design templates created with QuarkXPress cannot be processed. All other program-independent files on request. 

Personalisation/automatically creation of inserts 
Please ask for our Excel template.

Image files must be created in CMYK mode with an image resolution of at least 72 dpi in the original size for large format print and 250 dpi for digital print. The required file size for a non-compressed TIFF file for a printed image of 1 x 1 m with an image resolution of 72 dpi is approx. 25 MB. If file is sent in another mode than CMYK, we will convert the mode. We do not assume any liability for colour variations.

File formats which cannot generally be used:
Word documents (*.doc,*.docx,*.odt); PowerPoint presentations (*.ppt,*.pptx,*.pps,*.ppsx,*.odp); Excel files (*.xls,*.xslx,*.ods).

Storage of data:
We have the right to delete data, which was created no matter by whom, without further information after 2 years from delivery date. You are welcome to ask for a CD with those data with costs.

General information:
Minor colour tolerances for technical reasons are permitted and must be accepted by the customer. Digital printing uses the colours cyan, magenta, yellow and black. A perfect reproduction of the colours in your original copy (HKS, pantone, etc.) cannot, therefore, be guaranteed. Deviations in colour and slight stripe effects caused by printing cannot be precluded and shall not be accepted as cause for complaint. When a data carrier is sent to us together with the original copy, only the data contained on the data carrier is binding for us.
