The facade of a building is much more than a protective mantle. It also lends a building its distinct appearance and identity and is an essential component of architecture. The development of concrete skin was inspired by Rieder‘s vision of a concrete cladding panel that is both stable and lightweight, able to withstand the effects of weather and environmental conditions and at the same time sustainable and aesthetic. concrete skin is made of fibreC – the name is an acronym of the words “glassfibre“ and “concrete“ – is a glassfibre-reinforced concrete panel that unites the advantages of both glassfibres and concrete. Glassfibre-reinforced concrete is made of purely mineral raw materials, which give the panels their unique characteristics. The authentic appearance creates an vivid facade.
Concrete Skin facade panels are available in two standard sizes: 2500 x 1200 and 3600 x 1200 mm. The large-format panels are 13 mm thin and give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades. The panels can be produced in any requested dimensions up to the maximum standard size. Rieder offers cutting-waste optimization for project-specific dimensions. The panels are dyed throughout with natural colour pigments and are available in 12 different colours and three surface textures - FE Ferro (sandblasted), FE Ferro Light (sandblasted at lower pressure) and MA Matt (brushed, smooth surface), with countless creative possibilities regarding colour, structure and form.
