Claddings and facade panels
With durcrete UHPC you can create brilliant architectural concrete facades in prefab quality with a concrete cladding. The design can be performed regardless of the basic wall material and the joints of the construction. With the rear ventilated rainscreen cladding, you get a highly effective system in terms of construction physics. The ventilated facade gains importance, in new buildings and refurbishment with respect to economy, ecology, long life expectancy, comfort and conservation of monuments. Modern rail systems enable rapid installation of a mix of metal panels and natural stone to produce a variety of creative designs.
durcrete is a specialized product made to order according to each customer’s specification, not a mass produced industrial product.
The rear ventilated rain screen cladding, made with large sized durcrete panels, gives freedom in the creative design of new buildings, structures and refurbishment, even in modern monument conservation. The façade joints can be designed regardless of the construction members. Invisible and restrained free fixings and connections equalise great tolerances of the primary construction. The cladding can be mounted with every insulation thickness using steel, concrete or masonry constructions. Depending on the rail system used, the panels are interchangeable. The quality of site concrete works depends on many factors such as weather conditions, curing time and the skill of the labourer. Avoid this and insist on superior defined prefab quality without visible anchor holes. Inspire yourselves, with multiple uses it can be used as an architectural concrete surface, mounting plate for ceramic tiles, glass, or thin metal sheets as well.
8 mm or 12 mm-thick durcrete-panels can be integrated as colourfully gradated infill into curtain walls. In housing, the balcony balustrade can be done with durcrete panels. Other application are sunscreens and clouding constructions. The panels can be used as mounting plates for glass, ceramic tiles or metal sheets. Shield grids or LEDs of media facades can be poured into the concrete.
