LITHO betoShell

Concrete façades made easy

The LITHO betoShell textile-reinforced concrete system offers numerous options for the concrete façade designs in the new-build, refurbishment and conservation sectors. We can therefore offer you five attractive finishes and colours, from smooth-form to exposed-aggregate concrete. Even large panels with a surface area of up to 8.6 m² can be suspended in the flexible aluminium substructure - without visible fixings. The glass-fibre or carbon-reinforced concrete panels are considerably lighter than steel-reinforced concrete.

Ultralight and strong as steel-reinforced concrete

LITHO betoShell is revolutionising the concrete façade

The LITHO betoShell ventilated curtain wall façade system is the latest innovation in the Lithodecor range and a VCW façade system with impressive advantages.

Thanks to the strong reinforcements made from corrosion-resistant glass fibre or carbon aligned with the direction of force, panels can be up to storey height at 3.60 m, with a maximum elemet size to 3.3 m². Although the panels are considerably lighter than a steel-reinforced, 100 mm thick façade panel, they possess a similar load capacity. The system is also impressive on account of its cost effectiveness and environmentally friendly properties. Due to its low weight, LITHO betoShell saves on transportation and installation costs. With a low carbon dioxide equivalent, 80 per cent less energy input for production as well as 100 per cent recyclability, this system is also a green building material for the façade.

LITHO betoShell is the easy way to achieve a façade that is impressive in terms of aesthetics and technology.
