Unlike plain concrete, in reinforced concrete, the tensile strength of steel and the compressive strength of concrete work together to stresses caused by wind, earthquakes, vibrations and other forces over considerable spans of time.
ARCHITECTURAL CONCRETE WALLS
Design is not limited to what is on the ground. An architectural wall brings concrete to vertical space. The possibilities are limitless with vertical design work. Inlays, moldings, decorative framing, and hidden features can all be seen on a vertical concrete wall.
RYBAK’S vision and ingenuity enables the firm to deliver cost-effective architectural walls of the highest quality.
Architectural and/or decorative concrete refers to concrete used not only for its structural capabilities, but an aesthetic finish as well; material made to be seen. Whether creating broad expanses or minute details, concrete permanently captures a desired look. Achieving a decorative appearance requires specialized forms, finishing techniques, and ingredients, and the variety of effectively executed architectural concrete is nearly unlimited.
Utilizing top-of-the-line concrete polishing products, tools and equipment, RYBAK ensures successful installation of polished concrete floors, dyed concrete, acid stained floors, epoxy and specialty toppings not only for its own projects, but for architects, business owners, general contractors, homeowners and project management companies as well.
