Our cladding products meet even the most demanding requirements for thin and lightweight panels with a broad range of shapes, forms and surface finishes.
  • We take pride in engineering and manufacturing our products with the latest technologies, as we have in-house structural engineering, statics calculation and design engineering departments. Our company works closely with two of the major universities in Latvia to foster innovation in concrete compound, surface and colour solutions.

Product information

GRC Usage

GRC – a thin and lightweight custom shaped concrete panel used in facade cladding, which is used for:

  • internal and external wall claddings
  • balconies or non-structural fillings of balcony balustrades

Material

We only use spray-up technology with glass fibre reinforced concrete, Grade 18P according to GRCA. Sprayed solutions are generally stronger than premix vibration cast GRC. Manufactured from a Portland cement (EN 197-1), silica sand with maximum grain size 1.2 mm, acrylic polymers, superplasticizers, alkali resistant fibres and inorganic colouring pigments.

Our manufacturing facility has its own testing equipment. We fully conform with quality in each piece we produce. Our company operates in accordance with international ISO standards and is ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 certified.

We commit to delivering you greener products. Our production is more environmentally friendly as sprayed GRC requires less water content compared to premixed GRC.

Moulds and shapes

We have in-house engineers and designers for custom-made cladding production and seamless cooperation with your design and engineering staff. This allows our customers freedom for their vision and architecture. We can engineer flat or multi dimensional moulds for most unique shapes. Each product is manufactured with calculated glass fibre reinforcement, thickness and mounting solution.

Colours and Textures

As standard, our concrete products are white or have a natural colour of hardened concrete (architectural concrete). According to customer requirements, GRC elements are mass coloured in mass to ensure the look and feel of natural stone that enjoys long life and maintains color even if damaged. Surfaces can be textured, matt, natural concrete bubble void decorated or flat-finished according to customer requirements. 

Strength & Durability

GRC products are sprayed using glass fibre reinforced concrete, allowing extremely thin yet large surfaces. We take pride in having industry-leading characteristics, such as tensile strength UTS from 8 to 12 N/mm2 or charpy impact strength of 15 to 25 N/mm/mm2 to ensure worry-free assembly. For more complex shapes however we add built-in mounting solutions to ensure extra durability. Feel free to download our Product data sheet

Transportation and care

Our GRC facade products are manufactured from concrete and intended to serve an entire lifetime. Our cladding does not require extra care; however, based on the climate, location and transport density, scheduled washing may be required as frequently as you would wash your windows in order to maintain the best possible shape.
