Lightweight structure

GRC balconies from BB fiberbeton are manufactured in a design tailored to the individual project. With the formability of GRC, you are able to adapt the design to best fit with the architecture of the building facade.

While the balconies have the appearance of solid concrete, they are in fact lightweight structures. They consist of a load bearing steel structure that is encapsulated with a GRC balcony floor and ceiling. For the project on Nørrebrogade 189, BB fiberbeton manufactured 9 balcony floors and 9 balcony ceiling elements, corresponding to around 50 m2 GRC. The ceiling elements are executed in 12 mm and the floors in 27 mm with a non-slip pattern.

Durable, lightweight, formable

GRC cladding

Through design and manufacturing we help architects, entrepreneurs, and builders create unique, durable, and sustainable facades. Whether you are starting construction on a new build or embarking on a renovation project, GRC is suitable for both.

Glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) is incredibly versatile and grants you an architectural design freedom with almost endless possibilities. With the formability of GRC you can achieve any geometry and with a surface designed for your specific project. GRC is a lightweight material and our cladding elements are typically only 12 mm. Thus, making it easier to work with and transport whilst also easing the load on buildings.

GRC is an excellent facade material if durability and sustainability is of great concern and importance. GRC is durable for more than 100 years without any technical maintenance and it does not dent, rot, corrode, nor burn (class A material). With a sustainable material and an environmentally friendly production without toxic materials, GRC elements from BB fiberbeton are ideal for environmental certifications, such as LEED, DGNB, and BREEAM.

GRC is made of white cement and fine aggregates and reinforced with glassfibre. Elements are produced using a special spray-technique that allows for a low water/cement-ratio, a low thickness, and a high strength.
