Rieder has expanded its centre of competence for customised concrete-based facade solutions. In addition to the internationally successful large-format fibreC panels, the Austrian company also produces conveniently sized, easy-to-handle glassfibre reinforced concrete slats.
Rieder has also developed a special production technology for the manufacturing of three-dimensional glassfibre reinforced concrete elements. The large-format fibreC facade panels are 13mm thick and give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades. The format can be customised up to a maximum size of 1.2 x 3.6 metres. 10 different colours and three different surface textures offer numerous possibilities for the creative use of colours, textures and shapes. As the material is deformable, fibreC panels can be shaped smoothly over corners and edges. FibreC facade claddings are designed as curtain-type, rear-ventilated facade system and are suitable for almost any type of building.
Special production technology allows the production of three-dimensional facade elements with customised dimensions and shapes. Each element is produced as a unit to create a monolithic appearance. FibreC 3D elements can be combined with standard fibreC large-format panels to offer architects and building owners an economical solution for the entire building shell.
Öko Skin glassfibre reinforced concrete concrete slats come in a length of 1800 mm and are available in widths of 147 mm and 302mm. The conveniently sized slats can be easily installed and can be cut to size and processed directly at the building site. Because of the robustness of concrete, the slats never have to be sanded and never need a fresh coat of paint to maintain their pristine appearance. Öko Skin is simple to install, with special screws and rivets that match the colour of the panels. Concrete slats 302mm wide can also be used as bevel siding.
With its range of innovative products, Rieder combines flexibility, aesthetics and intelligence in facade design. The company will present its entire product showcase at BAU, the trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, 14-19 January 2013, in Munich. Visit Rieder at exhibition booth A2.109.
