Application

Wide range of applications beyond common adopted use for small, medium and large format panel systems. Provides a lightweight, high impact, total façade rainscreen cladding solution.

Description

GRC is a composite material comprising of cement, fine aggregates, alkali resistant glass fibres, acrylic polymers and admixtures/ additives.


Features and benefits:

  • Fire classification A1 or A2-s1,d0 to BS EN 13501.
  • Weight, to promote savings in the ground and the structural frame.
  • Speed of installation, removing the need for multiple trade contractors.
  • High quality, obviating the skills shortages upon high rise structures.
  • Logistics in material distribution and access strategy. 
  • Programme, whereby the façade is wholly removed from the critical path and is supplied to site on a just in time basis.
  • Tower cranes –the reliance upon these for the external facade is removed with installation achievable by monorail or spider crane.
