Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete
Cladding elements in GRC by BB fiberbeton
Partnership Hi-Con and BB fiberbeton
Since 2019, Hi-Con and BB fiberbeton are exclusive partners for the Dutch facade market. With this cooperation, we have combined our knowledge and extensive experience with super slender balconies, facades, staircases and bridges in Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) and extremely thin facade cladding in Glassfibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC). In this way, we can offer even more exciting choices and product combinations in high quality special concretes for a wide variety of facade projects.
GRC is concrete for a new era. It is a hard material with a dense surface and extreme durability of more than 100 years. Danish, eco-friendly and sustainable production with low energy consumption and without any toxic materials.
GRC is sprayed into molds and formed into elements of often 12 mm thickness. The thin-shell elements are lightweight and therefore reduce both sub-constructions, load on buildings, and CO2 emissions during transport. GRC is easy and simple to handle and install.
GRC is becoming more and more popular among architects as it gives great design freedom and thus help challenge the boundaries of architecture. With GRC, ideas can be shaped in sizes and geometry. GRC can take any form, and appearance of surface can be detailed for both new buildings and renovations.
