Product Information:
Final round for mounting the high-tech façade of the Soccer City Stadium

Among the competitors for the realisation of the stadium façade in Johannesburg Rieder was striking for the complete, ecological, future-oriented and efficient conception. The modularising, the development of a colour codesystem for the complex design of the facade, the intelligent solution to integrate the subframe in the proposal and the erection of the field factory "fibreCamp" - that is currently based at the Soccer City Stadium - were essential for the success of Rieder.

Own Goal: Who's really paying the price for South ...

All sporting eyes are on South Africa as the World Cup kicks off. But what kind of architectural legacy will the event leave behind and, perhaps more importantly, what will be its economic one?


The development of concrete skin was inspired by Rieder‘s vision of a concrete cladding panel that is both stable and lightweight. The large-format panels are 13 mm thin and give architects plenty of scope in the design of individual facades, with regard to colour, structure and form. Glassfibre reinforced concrete is in-combustible and made of mineral-based raw materials, giving the panels their unique characteristics. The authentic appearance creates a vivid facade. Concrete skin pulls smoothly over buildings, corners and edges like a skin and creates a unique material flow.

The material guarantees absolute safety and fire resistance due to its excellent thermal properties (fire protection class A1 "non-combustible" according to DIN 4102). With its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications, Rieder sets itself high standards for environmental protection. The environmental product declaration, EPD, gives precise indicators for the life cycle assessment.

Width: max. 1500 mm (max. width for surface matt: 1350)
Length: max. 5000 mm

concrete skin is available in all colour collections:
greyscale: polar white, off-white, ivory, silvergrey, chrome, anthracite, liquid black
bricky: terracotta, coralline, oxide red, burgundy, merlot
timber: terra, larch, oak, walnut, ebony
pietra: sahara, sandstone, cotton, vanilla, almond

The new textures add liveliness and depth to any facade. The various structures create an exciting interplay of light and shadow that changes depending on the angle of view. The new textures open up additional freedom for architects and room for individual ideas. The different characteristics better emphasise the naturalness of the concrete material and the authentic appearance.
