GRC parapets

Individual design & finish

Individual design & finish


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 using one of the following installation systems:

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

In each project, several different installation solutions can be combined so that all elements have an easy and possibly concealed installation. 

The majority of our facade solutions leverage the material's possibilities for installation without visible screws and with the fewest possible additions and other loose parts. This results in a finished product that appears solid and does not require technical maintenance. 

Facade elements are most often installed as building envelopes with ventilated backsides. The installation method itself varies depending on the element's size and the nature of the underlying load-bearing structure. 

On smaller elements, brackets are embedded on the back, and the element is mounted similarly to the installation method for a radiator. 

On larger elements, there is often a need for greater spacing between fastening points for structural reasons. For this, we offer both a solution with a stud-frame or a ribbed solution. In both cases, the solutions are used to transfer forces to the substructure where desired or where possible. 

We often supply the receiving brackets for a complete solution. 

Vertical joints are often executed using traditional solutions: expanding joint tape, etc., or overlaps are created. Horizontal joints are typically ventilated, allowing lower elements to extend under the overhanging element. 

All our technical solutions are thoroughly tested and statically grounded.
