Architectural concrete on the façade are facade panels, prefabricated, whose main role is to decorate the façade, that is, the outer part of the wall of houses and buildings. In addition to the aesthetic finish of the façade, the architectural concrete on the façade acts as an insulator for external walls in a 3-layer system. In the winter, it provides protection against wall cooling, in the summer it allows to maintain an appropriate microclimate in the building interiors by creating an external barrier for heat transfer
Excellent facade panels
Most often they appear in the form of cuboids, i.e. rectangles of not very thick, but guarantee high values of strength and integrity. The most fashionable façades on the façades are decorative concrete slabs, also known as architectural ones. Importantly, concrete facade panels can be adjusted to individual customer requirements.
Such panels can have any dimensions, as well as different porosity from typical porous concrete characteristic to quite smooth. The very texture of the mix also gives our clients and architects a lot of space because of this porosity, i.e. the percentage of bubbles in the final product, which can range from 5% to as much as 70%. There are also different color versions of concrete slabs. In recent years, anthracite color has been particularly popular.
Why are the GRC facade panels so liked by developers?
In the case of a façade panel made of decorative concrete, there is no assembly difficulty. In particular, such boards can be fastened with glue, anchors (visible or blinded), mounting rails.
Thanks to this type of exterior finishing we can create smooth joints, fugues or imitation formwork. This allows you to create truly artistic facades in a fashionable style, whether monumental or light. The GRC concrete is definitely a very popular material recently. GRC wall panels thanks to their excellent strength properties and lightness are often chosen by customers. It is the best solution for everyone, who are looking for the best material.
