GIAN Concrete Art is a new technique for creating
symbols, letters, fantasy designs and even images in
concrete. This new technique, combined with the
qualities of the GIAN pattern mat (easily processed
and reusable) meets the desires of commissioners,
architects, concrete business and mould makers.
Relief in concrete
Compañero has long searched for an economically
attractive solution for the enhancement of concrete
façade elements. They have found the solution in a
computer controlled cutting technique. This technique
enables great freedom with regard to design. By cutting
the designs entirely from the GIAN 100 smooth pattern
mat and gluing it on the mould base of the concrete
mould, one creates a sunken or protruding pattern in
The GIAN 100 is a 3mm thick smooth pattern mat with
a special top layer that gives the concrete a visually
smooth and virtually pore free surface. The mat is
2 meters in width, with unlimited length. The GIAN1-7
pattern mats can also be used for an additional detail in
the concrete. Many combinations are possible.
In addition to adding patterns, you can also paint the hardened
concrete using templates (also provided through computer-controlled cutting) many color
combinations are possible.
We prefer to receive the design as an AI- or DXF file.
These files can be fed directly to the computercontrolled
cutting machine after which the assignment
can be performed without additional design fees.
