The development of glassfibre reinforced concrete was inspired by Rieder's vision of a concrete cladding panel that is both stable and lightweight. The aesthetic panels with only 13 mm thickness in various colours, surfaces and shapes give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades. Glassfibre reinforced concrete is non-combustible an made of mineral-based raw materials, giving the panels their unique characteristics.
These rain screen facade panels exist to cover buildings like a skin made of extruded concrete – opening entirely new possibilities for modern ventilated wall designs with long-term durability.
R2R – “Render to Realisation” – describes Rieder’s integrative approach for developing a holistic solution for building envelopes and includes optional services like facade optimisation, fastening methods and mock-ups.
This course presents the advantages and high performance of Rieder's glassfibre reinforced concrete cladding. The different products, various design possibilities, solutions and sustainable facts will be discussed.
