fibreC 3D CAST
Outdoor fiber-reinforced concrete 3D Wall Cladding for facades
Cement, Fiber-reinforced concrete
The three-dimensional mould elements made of glass fibre-reinforced concrete make facades with ambitious geometric forms possible. Thanks to a newly developed manufacturing technology, fibreC 3D elements can be produced in fair-faced concrete quality on both sides, which means that Rieder will grant architects even more design freedom. As the mould elements can be combined with the fibreC facade panels, they represent an economical solution for one-of-a-kind facades.
The product innovation fibreC 3D enables architects and builders to use three-dimensional freeform elements on facades with complex geometries. “Monolithic Cast“ is a special production technology for concrete panels that enables 3-dimensional cladding elements with faced concrete quality on both sides. Other surface textures such as relief concrete (by the usage of formliners) are available. Each element consists of a uniform and non-seperable unit for a monolithic appearance. The modular formwork construction is done based on the architects‘ individual design. Self compacting concrete (SCC) reinforced with fibres is pumped into the formwork to build positive as well as negative forms with dimensional accuracy. The colour of the concrete matrix is variable. The characteristic appearance of concrete creates a vivid and authentic surface on the facade.
fibreC 3D elements have a visual compatibility with fibreC extruded panels. A high repeatability of the produced 3D elements and the combination with flat fibreC panels offer builders an economical solution for the whole building envelope. Fixing anchors can be integrated during the production process (concealed) or added with screws later on. The optional use of barcode technologies (scanning) provides advantages in logistics.
Rieder offers support for architects and planners from the early planning stage to the realisation of the project and gives advice regarding facade optimisation, fastening methods, logistics solutions and installation.
