folded glassfibre reinforced concrete
As monolithic concrete fins, formparts offer a high degree of flexibility and a wide range of design options for architectural concrete. The folded concrete elements with an optimized fastening system enhance glass facades and serve as a refined visual and sun protection. You can choose between two different versions: formparts.fab and formparts.mono.
The folded elements are tailor-made as a single piece and are available with L- or U-cross section, as a round arch, and as special shapes with a length of up to 16’ 4-7/8”.
Due to the low weight of the formparts and their large spans, less substructure is required. They provide an economical solution for the building envelope.
The pre-assembly in the factory, independent of weather conditions, ensures a high quality standard and quick assembly on site. The elements are simply mounted and then finetuned.
Concrete is alive
Glassfibre reinforced concrete is a natural material. Its raw materials that originate from nature create a special, concrete-like surface.
Fire resistance with 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.
R2R – “Rendering to Realization” – includes optional services, such as design development, facade optimisation, static calculations, fastening methods, mock-ups and prototyping, element substructures, pre-assembly, and logistics concepts.
fins are formparts with a U-shaped cross-section in a 2-3/4” x 2-3/4” format. They are used as slender concrete slabs for facades to serve as permanent visual and sun protection for large window areas.
fins also create creative design accents on the building envelope. Due to the geometrical shape of the fins, the daylight creates special light effects in the interior.
