The factors that influence cladding choice are complex and depend on a building’s size, location and use among many other things. Some of the most important factors, especially for architects and designers, are the ability to create a visually appealing structure with materials that encompass versatility and longevity.
It’s in this context that German company Rieder set out to push the boundaries and develop a forward-thinking new cladding option. “Rieder’s vision was of a thin yet solid facade. It was this aim that drove the development of their FibreC glass-reinforced concrete panels, which are only 13mm thick,” The Tile People’s Glenn Obery says.
The Tile People exclusively distributes two Rieder cladding products, the FibreC panels and oko skin.
