The Smart Choice In Concrete Cladding Panel Systems
Synstone glass fibre reinforced concrete (GFRC) cladding panels have the general appearance of precast panels, but are different in several significant ways. For example, Synstone GFRC panels will, on average, weigh substantially less than precast concrete panels due to their reduced thickness. The low weight of Synstone glass fibre reinforced concrete panels decreases superimposed loads on buildings structural components, the building frame thus becomes more economical. In addition, the lightweight Synstone panels are less costly to transport and to erect.
In terms of architectural design, Synstone GFRC panels provide architects with an abundance of possibilities. By utilizing various face mix decorative aggregates and form liners, GFRC panels add a creative finish to any building.
Synstone panels are high strength, lightweight, non combustible, and vandal proof while still having the aesthetic appeal of natural stone, exposed aggregate, and other surface effects. Synstone offers a range of effects including slate, stucco, travertine, brick, wood grain, and random textured surfaces. All effects can be face or back fastened to new or old structures expanding the flexibility of the panels.
The performance characteristics of Synstone make it an excellent material choice for all exterior and interior applications. Thanks to its exceptional properties, Synstone glass fibre reinforced concrete extends the scope of possibilities in new and retrofit design. Synstone cladding panels are available for many uses, from prestigious panelling to high rise and commercial building facades.
