Glassfibre reinforced concrete
Concrete is alive
fibreC is a glassfibre reinforced concrete that combines the advantages of both materials. The technical characteristics, the quality, and the longevity facilitate versatile and avant-garde applications of a natural product.
The natural product with its characteristic signs of life, such as cloud effect, pores, and an interplay of shades of colour, provide a lively appearance on the facade
For the product, Rieder uses raw materials that originate from nature. Glassfibre reinforced concrete ensures absolute fire resistance due to its excellent thermal properties (fire protection class A1 “non-flammable” according to DIN 4102).
Lean & resilient
Due to the reinforcement with glass fibres, fibreC can withstand extremely high loads with a thickness of only 13 mm and a calculated service life of more than 50 years.
fibreC is dyed throughout with iron oxide pigments and natural additives. The natural, hence authentic, colours blend well into landscapes and correspond with nature and the environment.
The ability to bend and form panels opens up new possibilities for design with concrete. Form parts are tailor-made as single pieces and create monolithic facades with smooth jointing.
