In many regions wood is an important design element of both traditional and modern architecture. The main disadvantages of wood are its high maintenance requirements and the fact that it does not retain its attractive appearance in the long term, particularly if the facade is strongly weather-exposed. Rieder öko skin offers an ideal alternative: the slender glassfibre concrete panels neither have to be sanded nor painted. Another substantial advantage over wood is the fact that öko skin meets fire protection class A1 and is noncombustible. öko skin allows Rieder to capture regions and building types previously reserved to traditional building materials such as wood. öko skin – as beautiful as wood, as sustainable as concrete.
Thin-walled, slat-sized concrete The panels have a very convenient size (1800 x 147 mm) and can be easily mounted and processed on site - both by professionals and skilled do-it-yourselfers. Flexible formats available on request (width up to 105-302 mm and length up to 600 - 2400mm).
Low Maintenance Unlike wooden claddings, Rieder Slat Wall needs neither be abraded nor painted at regular intervals. Individual elements can be replaced easily.
Flexible applications Facades, claddings of porches, conservatories, terraces, garden sheds, garages, fences and many more.
High fire resistance Absolute fire resistance, fire protection class A1, non-flammable, safe alternative to traditional wood panelling.
Colours and Surfaces öko skin slat wall panels are dyed throughout with natural colour pigments and are available in 12 different colours.
