The innovative metamorphosis of concrete
With DUCON, extremely thin and highly load-bearing components are possible, which offer new creative possibilities in architecture. Compared to conventional reinforced concrete, façade elements made of DUCON can be produced in a significantly lower component thickness with the same load-bearing capacity (saving on the dead weight of the façade) or in a larger format with component lengths of up to over 10 m (reducing the assembly work).
Thin-walled components with a high load-bearing capacity in combination with surfaces that can be designed in any desired way also enable a free design language in architecture. One example is the thinnest, self-supporting concrete staircase as a static folding structure. Furthermore, filigree entrance portals as well as ultra-slim shell structures have been made of DUCON.
