Facade panels made of glassfibre reinforced concrete
concrete skin withstands extreme loads with enormous panel sizes. Due to their robust properties, the panels are weather-resistant and have a long service life.
The format is freely configurable up to the maximum sizes. Individual shapes, colours, surfaces, and perforations offer numerous possibilities for architects.
Suspended, ventilated facade system offers advantages in terms of building physics, ecological, and economic considerations. concrete skin is fastened visibly or concealed on a metal substructure.
Concrete is alive
Glassfibre reinforced concrete is a natural material. Its raw materials that originate from nature create a special, concrete-like surface.
The material guarantees absolute safety and fire resistance due to its excellent thermal properties (fire protection class A1 "non-combustible" according to DIN 4102).
With its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, Rieder sets itself high standards for environmental protection. The environmental product declaration, EPD, gives precise indicators for the life cycle assessment.
Irregular lines playfully run across the slabs like ribbons. The combination of straight and angled, partially overlapping lines of different sizes creates an exciting visual effect on the facade. The flow of the lines harmoniously integrates into the overall picture.
The addition of mica gives the facade a glittering, shimmering appearance. Depending on how the sunlight falls, the particles reflect in different ways and create unique effects. This is definitely the texture for individual highlights.
The exquisite texture is an interior highlight and an elegant eye-catcher. The shiny surface reflects the light and creates a new space effect. The slabs have a different look depending on how the light falls. This texture particularly emphasises the vivid surface characteristic of concrete with its interplay of colour shades and cloud effects. The natural appearance of the material changes over time, giving each panel a unique look.
The coarse, dark grain gives this slab a individual look. A special surface treatment lends the texture a unique speckled appearance, which forms an exciting contrast especially with light colours. terrazzo black gives the facade a discreet two-tone effect.
The appearance of the new slate texture is based on slate slabs and their natural layers. A unique light refraction occurs at the edges of the rock layers, causing them to stand out to varying degrees depending on the angle the light hits. Since light conditions change over the course of the day, the facade with this texture has a different appearance depending on the time of day.
lumber is based on an authentic natural look. A homogeneous wood grain lends the building envelope a strong depth effect. Similar to wood, the facade panels have a multi-layered effect, but unlike wood, they do not require additional weather protection.
There is no limit to the imagination when it comes to designing the texture pattern. Individually selected patterns are blasted into the glassfibre reinforced concrete elements. These give the facade an extraordinary look and feel as well as a unique appearance.
Due to its plasticity, concrete skin can be run smoothly over corners and edges. The curved elements are tailor-made as a single piece and are therefore available as round arches, corners, or U-cross sections. Flowing transitions create monolithic facades with undisturbed joints. The combination of large format panels with formparts provides an economical solution for the entire building envelope.
Small gaps in the large glassfibre reinforced concrete panels create a partial view of the surroundings. This results in an interesting interplay between transparency and cladding. Appropriate lighting or solar radiation creates an interesting interaction between light and shade in the direct surroundings. Perforated panels can be used in a variety of ways – as a partition, sun protection or design element.
