Delicate construction with free-form shapes - the advent of textile reinforcements has made creativity in concrete architecture easier than ever before. Since solidian reinforcements made with carbon or AR glass do not corrode, a thick concrete layer is not necessary. Mere millimetres are enough to allow tensions of over 3.000 N/mm² to be transmitted into the concrete. Architecturally sophisticated building projects and free-form designs never before feasible with concrete are now possible.
solidian reinforcements in 2D, 3D or bar form are made with a technologically innovative process in which we use special forming tools to manufacture completely custom solutions. A tried, tested and practice-proven range of standard reinforcement products is also available: angles, U-shaped, double-T shaped and spacer structures as well as free-form reinforcements in a variety of designs.
Free and creative shapes in concrete are now possible thanks to textile reinforcement.
L-shaped, U-shaped, cylindrical and rectangular cross-section profiles can easily be made with textile-reinforced concrete.
