• Case Study

    A landmark building is demolished. The architect wanted to connect the new building to the historic context and got the idea to have the debris of the old building to become part of the texture in the new building’s facade. A small mock up has been made, used to make a elastomere mould. This became the mould used for making the panels. The colour of the concrete has been linked to those of the adjacent buildings in the urban area.

  • Design Tips

    The Details Make The Difference

    Pay close attention to the details of your facade. The specification should include all relevant information, ensuring a method that conforms. We gladly cooperate with you to find the best possible solutions, taking the budget into consideration. There is no compromise in quality.

    Distracting Colours

    In some cases, the back construction is visible.

    If the difference between constructive elements and façade becomes too big, they can disrupt the visual image.

    Make sure to include in your specifications and drawings that where the background is visible, it must be colored.

    The door of this gas cabinet is covered with a concrete panel.

    The difference in seam width has been created to meet the ventilation requirements of the network operator.

    Detail your designs in such a way that the joint width is the same. And ensure that the sub-frame is painted in a color matching the panels.

    Concrete as a Building Material

    The Romans have discovered the unique advantages of this material way back. Often we are asked about the properties of our concrete. Well, because it is real concrete, they are the same as any concrete. However, thanks to a better cement to water ratio and the use of polymer, they are superior to regular concrete.

    Ventilated Façades

    Our panels are commonly used for rainscreen cladding. This type of cladding offers many advantages compared to a more traditional façades. In short, it presents better conditions within the building in combination with a light weight construction. This type of façade is common in countries with a high level of sun radiation and temperatures. In these areas we learn to appreciate its benefits more and more.

    Static Calculations

    Each project is unique. Dimensions, details, wind loads etc. are important. Our engineering department has the skills and knowledge to find the best result for your project. Exactly right: not too heavy, not to weak. There are no concessions for safety here.

  • Weight

    What is the weight of Glassfibre reinforced concrete?

    Not less than regular concrete: about 2300 kilo per cubic metre. But the advantage is that, thanks to the absence of steel reinforcement, the panel can be very thin. We do not need additional coverage of the reinforcement bars. The amourphos distribution of the fibres does the rest.

    Maintenance

    A beautiful facade should keep its looks. Like all facades, our concrete can potentially get stained and age, especially in urban areas.

    Hydrofobisation is a first step in reducing this. In conjunction with a proper design, you can reduce costs of maintenance considerably.
