Glassfibre reinforced concrete

Glassfibre reinforced concrete

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 fibreC 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 sus-tainable and aesthetic. 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 is a natural product and Rieder sees it as such, with all its vital signs and characteristics. Only natural raw materials are used for the production of fibreC to ensure the authenticity of this sustainable product. Lively surfaces with an interplay of colour shades and light cloud effects, rather than dead and clinical sur-faces are characteristic of fibreC and appeal to our senses. The structure of fibreC, which is typical for concrete, gives the material an unmistakable, honest character.


Concrete is a sustainable material suitable for leading-edge, future-oriented architecture. This building material embodies durability and stability of value. The ecological idea behind concrete is consistently implemented in the manufacturing of fibreC. Unlike other facade materials, such as fibre cement, aluminium or HPL, the production of fibreC requires a low amount of primary energy, which in turn minimizes CO2 emissions and the greenhouse effect (source: IBO product test). fibreC consists of purely mineral raw materials and is therefore completely recyclable. Rieder pursues a holistic approach that covers the entire range of sustainability and meets the high demands of ambitious modern architecture. Many projects built and evaluated in accord-ance with the international LEED© System (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) have been awarded their LEED certificate to a substantial extent thanks to their sustainable fibreC facade. Rieder is committed to making an active contribution to the energy turnaround through continuous research and further development of its products and production processes.
