Case Study: Q-Lon (Netherlands)

Case Study: Q-Lon (Netherlands)

Posted on 19/10/2017

Amstel Hotel, Netherlands



The Intercontinental Amstel in Amsterdam is a five-star superior hotel. It received its first guests in 1867 and has since been praised for its royal appearance and homely atmosphere.  The 79 rooms still feature historical details and give the rooms an authentic character. The beautifully located hotel with all its luxurious facilities ensures a relaxing stay in the vibrant city center of Amsterdam.

In order to maintain the special character, the hotel has been renovated recently maintaining its original details. In the past, the hotel had complaints from guests about draughts. Contractor Burgy started to search for a solution. Their partner and ironmonger Gerritse advised Q-Lon.

Edwin Hendriks, Account Manager at wholesaler Gerritse IJzerwaren (Isero IJzerwaren Groep): 

”Because everything was still in original condition, it wasn’t easy to find a suitable seal. The QL 3096 turned out to be perfect for the windows, with the windows completely tight, and fittings which didn’t need adjusting. The KOMO certificate convinced the customer of the quality and durability. He was pleased with the simple assembly and the perfect guidance from our part.”

In association with the SHR / SKH institute in Wageningen, Schlegel had 102 Q-Lon seals classified. The most important elements of the KOMO classification are recovery and long-term recovery. 

Richard Koopman, Project Manager at contractor Burgy Bouwbedrijf:

” We have chosen Q-Lon based on the quality and durability shown in the KOMO report. Thanks to the good support from Gerritse, we have been able to deliver the customer what was expected. In the Amstel Hotel only the best is good enough.”

The high sealing capacity and easy processing make Q-Lon extremely suitable for restoration work. With Q-Lon, not only timber, but also old aluminium and PVC applications can be well-sealed again. Please visit our website to select and view the available solutions.
