Winner of the Iconic Award 2022, the new LIGNOLOC® wooden nail with a head continues to ride the wave of success. BECK’s ecological nail for exterior and interior applications was convincing in the »construction materials / nails« category.

General Manager Christian Beck accepted the award on behalf of RAIMUND BECK KG:

“It is such amazing news that Rat für Formgebung - German Design Council and its jury also deem LIGNOLOC® as a potential gamechanger for the (timber) construction sector - like us! Our sincere thank you to the Rat für Formgebung - German Design Council for recognizing our work. Stefan Siemers, Michaela Beck and myself have received the award on behalf of the entire passionate and hard-working team at BECK. We have a big dream and a clear mission – this award is another strong motivational boost to relentlessly continue to pursue our vision!”

The statement of the jury

LIGNOLOC® wooden nails, collated for use in compressed air nail guns, permit the realization of horizontal and vertical wood cladding completely out of wood. This results in metal-free facades, which not only support the requirements of the recycling industry in terms of disassembly and recyclability, but also reduce the wear on tools during grinding or sawing. A revolutionary, ecological attachment system using wood as a recyclable raw material. The wood is Central European beech and comes from sustainable FSC forestry, which consequently makes an important contribution to a sustainable transition in the building industry.
