Architectural concrete GRC

Architectural concrete is a term that in the area of design and architecture, for several years, has been gaining more and more popularity. It is used both in the cladding of walls, facade panels, and in furniture tops, work surfaces, bathrooms, small architecture, or even in small decorative objects. However, it is purely aesthetic, behind which stands different technologies which has enormous importance for its creation and very different strength parameters based on usage.

It is, after all important for the investor; the parameter of frost resistance used for facades, the floor slab which is one or three centimetres thick and how fast it will wear off. How important is the weight of the counter-top!? These differences may reach several hundred kilograms of comparable sizes! Our material is technologically advanced concrete GRC that is: Glass reinforced concrete. GRC technology, in contrast to the traditional, most commonly used by manufacturers of concrete mixes, the highest in performance and durability. With GRC, we have no such restrictions on the dimensions of concrete slabs, while maintaining their small thickness and weight.


A typical element of 250/100 cm produced at a thickness of 11 mm while maintaining high strength guaranteeing complete security installation! Comparing to products made of conventional technologies GRC is two, three times lighter with a higher performance bending strength.


The installation of such concrete slabs can be done without the need for a reinforced wall and without using the structure, Which leaves you with no weight on your shoulders as you can be sure that GRC means safety, durability, efficiency, stability, and a joy to use.
