Specialized in stainless steel

BLÜCHER is synonymous with stainless steel for a number of good reasons. Stainless steel is highly corrosion resistant with outstanding longevity. When it comes to constantly draining water, stainless steel has no equal. In addition there are a number of other important characteristics that make stainless steel a reliable material to be depended upon over time.

Low weight high strength

Stainless steel is a strong, durable, pressure and chemical-resistant material. It can withstand a high degree of vibra-tions and it funcvibra-tions within a wide scale of temperatures. The high strength of the material enables the design of thin-walled low-weight products. Durability, ease of handling and installation are also part of the cocktail that makes stainless steel so popular.

Flow, hygiene and maintenance

Properly treated stainless steel has a unique smooth surface that guarantees maximum flow capacity, which in turn makes it possible to keep dimensions to a minimum. Shaped without rough corners and edges, cleaning and maintaining stainless steel takes minimum effort and time.

Quality, durability and whole life costing

An increasing number of people have come to realise that stainless steel solutions are highly competitive, also when it comes to price. Figuring installation time, maintenance and durability into the equation, say over a realistic 50 year period, stainless steel solutions from BLÜCHER have no equal.

Environmentally safe

Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and non-toxic. If a system needs replacements or replacing, the disposal of the old material is of no harm to the environment.

Fire safety

Being able to withstand temperatures over 800° Celsius, stainless steel is a highly fire resistant material.

Design

If design is a parameter, which is becoming the case in more and more aspects of life, stainless steel is a durable timeless classic material that also stands the visual test of time.

Yesterday

BLÜCHER was founded by the Danish plumber Johannes Blücher Skibild. A man with visions and both his feet solidly on the ground, looking for a sophisticated grating for drainage installations. Outside business hours he and his wife started operating out of their barn producing stainless steel gratings. Since then the BLÜCHER group has continuously expanded its products and services.

Today

While BLÜCHER challenges yesterday with new designs and solutions, we stay true to the basics of good craftsmanship, quality and a down-to-earth-spirit. Therefore it is always easy to do business with us regardless of how complicated a project might be.

Most standard products are kept in stock and our terms of delivery are flexible. We provide organized documentation like catalogues, mini guides and an extensive on-line product database.

Customized projects are supported with extensive documenta-tion and CAD drawings. All products are of course delivered with a detailed step-by-step guide to installation, and to the extent that our products need maintenance, guides can be found on our website.

Tomorrow

We intend to keep up the flow and continuously improve and increase our range of products, documentation and communi-cation.

We also intend to expand our worldwide services and repre-sentations, always adapting to local requirements and your specific needs.
