Architectural concrete

GRC Beton Poland wishes to support designers in both the public and private sectors, so they can easily break with routine and use modern building materials to realize their visions and architectural designs. Thanks to fiberglass reinforced concrete GRC technology, art which includes architecture, can dynamically develop and benefit from the limitless possibilities of using a high-quality GRC concrete composite. The use of colored architectural concrete allows for creative and non-conformist concepts, as well as breaking with generally accepted templates and schemas. Such non-routine elements as facade-panels or GRC cladding infuse a city structure with a new life. GRC concrete is distinguished by its excellent strength and resistance to external factors, which allow for its use in reconstructing damaged historic buildings and to create so-called „street furniture”. Glass fiber reinforced concrete can be used also in tunnel linings. Moreover, facades-panels can be used as elements that associate the old with the new. Because of its exceptional qualities, GFRC is used as decorative concrete. Regarding the elements of garden architecture, among others, they include: benches, flower-pots, tables, trash bins, stair railings, fountains, water cascades and many others.

Attica

Another example of the use of architectural concrete is attic construction or renovation.  Attica is the top element of the façade, which has not only aesthetic function but also it is usable and serves to shelter the roof. Thanks to this, it protects neighboring buildings, e.g. in case of a violent spreading fire. The use of architectural concrete in the attic construction or renovation is a proven way to ensure construction’s durability and elegant design.

Facade panels

GRC Beton offers high quality facade panels characterized by interesting design and excellent ventilation parameters. They will be useful both in the housing of skyscrapers, supermarkets or storage halls facades as well as can be used for the impressive finish of the walls of one–family houses. The most important advantages of fiberglass facade panels are:  resistance to adverse weather conditions (UV radiation or acid rain), short assembly time, rich palette of shades, ecological aspects (fully recyclable) and easy maintenance. Facade panels can also be successfully used for renovating buildings, finishing chimneys and plinths, or filling balcony balustrades.

Tunnel linings

Fire and corrosion resistance make GFRC (glass fibre reinforced concrete) the perfect composite for road and rail tunnel lining.  Not only security aspects but also aesthetic considerations persuade us to choose GFRC tunnel lining – the unique design will make the new road infrastructure objects harmonious with existing urban buildings.
