Architectural Concrete with a depth effect: Light-independent visualization of photos and graphics in the concrete surface. For unlimited freedom of design.
The façade is a building’s external image. It can tell a story and awaken curiosity, make the hidden visible and highlight a building’s purpose. It can impress or shock, inspire and fascinate.
RECKLI artico® neo adds a significant component to the freedom of design provided by architectural concrete. This process can be used to realize photos, images, custom designs and graphics in exposed concrete. The impact of light and shadow doesn’t need to be considered. That’s why RECKLI artico® neo is also ideal for indoors.
The process is simple: RECKLI artico® neo is a plastic foil on which graphics or photos are printed with a high-quality concrete activator. The concrete activator binds the concrete at staggered intervals, so that it can be washed from the surface once removed from the textured formliner. The top cement layer of the concrete is partially removed. The contrast between the washed and smooth surfaces makes the graphics or photos on the façade visible.
The foils can only be used once.
With our artico® neo design collection we present you motifs which are available as a standard. With a maximum size of the plastic foil of 3.15m × 25m (printable area 3,10 m x 25m) we deliver these designs in rolls. The foil can easily be cut to the desired size on site. The designs are horizontally and vertically repeatable.
Your custom design or photo is printed in the max. dimension of 3.10m x 25m on a plastic foil (foil dimension 3,15m x 25m) and cut to the desired size. We take care of the preparation of the files and send a visualization on request. Photos are fragmented into halftone dots just like in newspaper printing. Their size depends on the image template and the viewing distance and is defined project-specifically. Designs that have been produced once can be re-ordered at any time. Thanks to the special production process, no setup costs arise.
