Muros Polished Concrete wall panels are constructed from a durable fibreglass-base, to authentically recreate the look and feel of a modern 'urban' concrete finish without the weight or expense. The European panels are suitable for walls and ceilings, counters and columns. Designed for interior use, and exterior applications in residential and inspired workspace, hospitality and retail settings.
Used horizontally or vertically Muros Polished Concrete Panels offer a more uniform concrete look with symmetrical lines running throughout. The ultra smooth grey panel is divided into five equal individual sections, synonymous with the style of Japanese architect, Tadao Ando. The flat sections are separated by deep grooves and each contain two circular indentations. The panel surface is a smooth concrete but with some aged undulations and mild pitting to create an authentic finish. A light coat (HPLV or soft roll) of paint can generate an even consistent result and is recommended with this design.
Given its structured format, it is generally more suited to large surfaces and provides an alternative to the Muros exposed and formwork concrete range. Available in two tones — a cool Grey and a new Rust (oxidised/corroded) colour.
Constructed from a fibreglass compound, combined with natural mineral pigments, panels are available in a range of colours, and also easily painted. Plaster, sign writing and other creative finishes offer further versatility and distinction.
