01 product description
fibreC, which is also known as “concrete skin” and has won international architectural awards - is a concrete panel reinforced with glassfibres which combines the advantages of concrete and glassfibres in one product: it is as solid, mouldable and durable as concrete, but thanks to the glassfibres also thin-walled, fireproof and light-weight. Like a skin of concrete, it allows the construction of slim elements with a tensile strength. The extremely thin concrete slabs contribute to the new language of shapes.

03 Technical Data
A new concrete quality:
-Increased fire resistance: good thermic values and fire resistance class A1 according to DIN standard, highest fire resistance and thermal stability up to 350°Celsius
-Performance: highest loading capacity at minimum cross sections and enormous panel sizes set new standards in facade engineering for interior and exterior applications.
-Long-term durability: proven long-term durability for both interior and exterior applications thanks to highest product quality.
-Authenticity: The use of purely mineral raw materials in the concrete matrix results in top quality meeting the highest requirements. fibreC is authentic. Concrete - not more and not less!
-Formability: bending, forming and chamfering of elements in one piece at constant solidity and without adhesive
-Individuality: A maximum degree of individuality of the elements is achieved by the new concept of industrial manufactory. Each element is unique in size, colour and surface.
fibreC glassfibreConcrete has a durability of over 50 years. Natural signs of wear in no way impair the mechanical load capacity and safety of the panels. Soiling, e.g. through street exposure, can influence differences in colour and gloss more strongly over the years than natural weathering. Upon request we will be pleased to send you information material on tests and certificates regarding maintenance and durability!

Glass, glass and nothing but glass
The sky is reflected in Europe’s highest building. London’s “The Shard” seems to constantly adapt to the weather and changing light conditions. This “visual adaptivity” is made possible by a coating custom-made for the high-rise. Julius Streifeneder talked with Bart Akkerhuis about it.› To the article
