Parapets

Parapet elements from BB fiberbeton are used for both renovations and new construction projects. For a renovation project, the material’s versatility is ideal for restoring the original appearance and expression down to even the smallest detail. Thus, it is possible to stay true to the building’s original design. With a new construction, an easy solution is achieved with all the advantages of other heavy solutions.

Balcony parapet elements are mostly executed according to the following principle; an outer element is mounted with embedded brackets on a railing system, and the construction is covered from behind by a standard plate. Thus, the overall construction appears monolithic and has a high degree of security.

GRC has numerous advantages compared to other possible materials. Our material does not burn, rust, nor dent and it requires no technical maintenance after installation.

Mounting principles

Our typical facade cladding is produced with one of the following mounting systems or a combination of same.

  • Stud-frame (embedded steel frame)
  • Embedded steel brackets
  • FA1000®
  • Embedded inserts
  • Recessed holes with plugs

Most of our facade solutions utilise the material’s possibilities for mounting without visible screws and with fewest possible loose parts. This achieves a finished result that appears to be monolithic and which technically requires a minimum of maintenance.

Facade elements are usually mounted as building envelopes with a ventilated back side. The assembly method itself varies according to the element size and the nature of the underlying supporting structure. On smaller elements, fittings are cast on the back and the element is mounted as a “radiator” – On larger elements, a load-bearing steel frame is embedded which then delivers the forces where it is possible.

Vertical joints are often performed with traditional element solutions: expanding joint strips etc. – or overlap. Horisontal joints are typically vented so that lower elements go under the overhanging element.

All our technical solutions are tried and tested.
