Material Overview:

Ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) is somewhat “new” to the façade rainscreen marketplace.  Taking advantage of various manufacturing approaches, there are a variety of UHPC or fiber concrete panels available.  The ability to achieve large format sizes, as well as a large range of finishes and custom capabilities, has quickly allowed fiber concrete panels to become very popular within the rainscreen design community.  

Design Considerations:

Fiber Concrete is produced in sheets or molds and then fabricated into finished panels.  Because of the manufacturing approach, fiber cement is often used as a material with “depth” and texture.  Panels often vary in color within individual panels.  Off-fall of material is a key design and fabrication consideration, so as to maximize the panel’s yield.  Both concealed and exposed, color-matched rivet systems are available.  Since many of the fiber concrete projects have strong visual texture, it is more common to select a concealed anchoring system.
