Tackle both structural and aesthetic challenges with this high-performance, self-compacting technology — combining exceptional mechanical capabilities with limitless design possibilities.

 

For over 15 years, Ductal® has been combining the efficiency of steel with the versatility of concrete to help you bring your boldest ideas to life.

Right from the drawing board, our structural ultra high-performance concrete elements allow you to set your imagination free.

Seen from the outside, our ultra-high performance concrete solution allows you to rethink architecture in a smarter way, from window placement to the very shape of your building – whether you opt for tailor-made precast façades, sprayed concrete or large-scale standardized panels.

1. Excellence

 

Structurally speaking, Ductal® can achieve the same performance using less material with the luxury of being able to put the right amount of material in just the right place. This allows the creation of optimized self-supporting structural elements that make the inside match the outside.

Get the freedom of architectural expression through the simplification and purity of structural design while significantly reducing brackets, substructures, additional waterproofing, and superfluous fixing points. This solution accelerates installation and reduces maintenance, risk, on-site trades and allows global optimization on the construction site.

2. Efficiency

 

Stainless steel fibers make Ductal® as light as it is durable. This top-level resistance and mechanical properties optimization allow you to apply thinner facades to structures presenting weight limitations, for example, attain outstanding panel sizes, and craft highly capacious load-bearing elements.

Traditional fiber-reinforced materials solutions can’t come close to these performances – be it its ductile and tensile strengths, load capacity, leak proofing or impact resistance.

3. Optimization

 

Meet your project’s specific structural needs, or push the envelope on how thin you can: don’t let the limitations of engineering get in the way of your boldest architectural inspiration.

You can come to us with your ideas big and small. So far, here are just some of the concepts we were able to make happen:

  • Renovation and retrofitting of building structures
  • Lightweight roofs, watertight roofing
  • Load-bearing building structures and building elements
  • Lightweight, ultra-thin floors and floor protection and reinforcement solutions, including overlays in building structures Structural sealing and grouting applications in the context of pre-fabricated building systems

4. Applications

 

Whether you design the most minimalistic elements or the most complex of shapes, we work with you to develop the materials that make it all happen.

Ductal® can be formulated so that you can reach your design goals, even in the most challenging environments.

But that’s just the product part: we are able to provide design and advice for your project implementation from design to execution through established partnerships.

Our ecosystem of high quality Ductal-compatible partners and solutions allow us to empower you to source just the right elements you need to bring the whole vision together, from fastening systems to specialized engineers.

Jean Bouin Stadium

In a residential district with three of the largest sports facilities in Paris (Roland Garros, Parc des Princes and Stade Jean Bouin), the challenge faced by the architect Rudy Ricciotti was to “tackle a massive architecture project while steering clear of a violent impact on the urban landscape.”

 

Manchester New Square

Manchester New Square joins a host of new hotels, museums, and pocket parks, giving Manchester a fresh face for 2021.

 

Apex House

Apex House is part of Grainger’s Seven Sisters Regeneration project located on the corner of Seven Sisters Road and Tottenham High Road in London.163 new residential units across two towers and four townhouses with a mixture of tenures, as well as communal roof terraces, amenity space and a new commercial market space to accommodate the local shops.
