V. Fraas

First reference project in Switzerland

Textile-reinforced concrete using carbon fibers and 3D lattice structures from the SGL Group and V. Fraas Solutions in Textile is an innovative composite material that consists of a fine-grained matrix and a textile reinforcement. A 3D carbon-fiber reinforcement has now been used for the first time for the concrete façade panels of a ventilated curtain-wall façade. Some 350 of these high-strength, ultra-thin façade panels measuring 865 x 1620 mm and of only 26 mm thickness were installed in the new construction of the Alphabeton AG precast plant in Büron/Switzerland. The three-dimensional...
