FibreC for Your Home-Healthy Diet

Forget the notion that advancing technology in architecture is similar to the transition between old-fashioned and high-definition television sets. It can be a simple change in composition that sets apart your traditional concrete material from a lightweight, high performance version. Take a look at FibreC – the concrete that requires no steel reinforcement.

FibreC. Designed by Rieder Faserbeton-Elemente GmbH.

Containing fiber glass, the family-owned Austrian company, Rieder Faserbeton-Elemente GmbH, developed a special extrusion process that inlays the glass into the concrete matrix. The top and under layer contains scattered fiber glass with no scientific pattern. The medium layer takes form as roofings, or fiber bundles, work together to form a band of strength. Altogether, the layers form a thin profile for the concrete slabs – measuring between 0.3 – 0.5″thick – and can be used in exterior and interior applications. Different colors can be applied to the material before it hardens for 28 days, allowing the slim surface to reach its full strength and withstand high stress.

FibreC is made from 90% sand and cement, with 10% glass fibers, pigments and different agents added in for resiliency and appearance. Besides the luxurious look and long term durability, the sleek concrete slabs are made efficiently, are food safe (for use in ovens) and for this reason, they have increased fire resistance after passing over 35 international product and system tests.

You can get the FibreC in various sizes that differ from interior to exterior applications. Exterior sizes include: 47 5/8″ x 8′ 2-27/64″ x 3/8″ or 1/2″ and 47 5/8″ x 11 9/34″ x 3/8″ or 1/2″; interior sizes: 47 5/8″ x 8′ 2 27/64″ x 5/16″ or 1/2″ and 47 5/8″ x 11′ 9-3/4″ x 3/8″ or 1/2″.

Since the versatile FibreC can be used for all surfaces and offers a highest loading capacity with minimum cross sections, its performance in the lightweight surface world forges into a field all its own.
