The right material in the right place. This also applies to construction. And this does not only mean steel, concrete, stone, glass and wood. Fiber reinforced composites can be intelligently designed to play their special strengths exactly where they are needed. And at the same time, they can highlight a very special property: low thermal conductivity. Supporting heavy facades or large windows while optimizing insulation performance? Our fiber reinforced composite systems, which we use for various applications in the building envelopes, can do this.


A lightweight, electrically non-conductive cable duct made of non-combustible fiber reinforced composite material (building material class A1) that allows radio signals to pass through undisturbed? This is a combination of properties that hardly any other material offers, both for technical building equipment, especially for special and special buildings, as well as in the field of railway infrastructure in tunnels and underground railway facilities.


Lightweight, stable, corrosion- and media-resistant, electrically non-conductive. Do you also think of elements and systems for the vehicle interior here? For example, for storage systems in commercial vehicles? As part of a modern interior in commercial vehicles, GFRP components show very well what fiber reinforced composites can do and what advantages they bring to the user: high load capacity, stability, chemical resistance and above all, low weight for less fuel consumption. Of course, crash-proof.


By using the inorganic, non-combustible fiber reinforced composite material fi:resist® on ships - for example, as a wall or ceiling element - the weight of the respective component can be reduced by around 30%. This means a possible weight reduction of around 1,000 tons for a large cruise ship if the wall and ceiling elements of the cabins are made of fi:resist®. As a consequence, the payload increases. And the center of gravity of the ship remains low. The lower thermal conductivity compared to metallic elements and the better sound insulation properties also clearly speak for fi:resist®. So far, the use of fiber reinforced composite lightweight construction on ships has been very limited due to fire protection regulations. And only feasible through significant detours of "alternative design" with corresponding proofs in individual cases. Here, fisco's package with the inorganic, non-combustible fiber reinforced composite material fi:resist® offers a big leap forward. And a big leap downward in component weight.


To sustainably and permanently meet the immense and constantly increasing loads of infrastructure structures, fiber reinforced composite components with the highest technical performance are used. Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) offers a reliable and building control-approved solution with its extremely high tensile strengths to extend the service life and usage of bridge structures by many years. This makes a significant contribution to conserving energy- and resource-intensive resources.


Composite material is an intelligent material that can be used in many more ways than one sometimes thinks. Therefore, it is represented in almost every application area. From aviation to agriculture, from cars to bicycles and from bridge reinforcement to window installation. Do you have a special requirement? Do you want to increase the benefit through innovative material? Or are you looking for a solution for an application that you have not yet found in the "classic" materials? Some of our products have been created with these questions in mind... For example, the barrier-free platform elevation made of the inorganic, non-combustible composite material fi:resist®. It demonstrates much more than the use of the right material in the right place. For use in the subway, both complete non-combustibility and an electrically non-conductive material are essential requirements. In addition, low component weight is required for easy handling during installation. However, no one had asked for an innovative mounting system that significantly simplifies and speeds up installation. fisco delivered it anyway, much to the customer's delight. That's why we've patented it.


From dry fiber to finished component. Creating a composite profile in the shortest possible time and in a small space. The fascinating thing about pultrusion is also its greatest strength. Continuity enables cost-effectiveness. And constantly stable quality.

At the beginning are the individual raw materials. Whether glass, carbon, or natural fiber; as roving, non-woven fabric, woven fabric, or multiaxial fabric; whether epoxy, polyurethane, or even a completely non-combustible inorganic resin, the portfolio is extensive and the possibilities for customization are almost unlimited.

Once the selection is made, the fiber semi-finished products are impregnated with resin in an automated, continuous pultrusion process, then shaped into a mould using an infeed. This ensures that each fiber is in the right place and performs its task optimally in the finished component.

The resulting fiber-matrix strand runs into a heated tool and leaves after a short time as a finished, cured profile – a perfect replica of the tool contour. And although it could go on forever, at some point, there must be an end: A flying saw turns the endless profile into individual components of the desired length.

A process under permanent tension. The pulling is the crucial part – hence the “PUL” in pultrusion.



Attach heavy facade consoles with thermal decoupling and general technical approval? That’s possible with the compressive load bearing insulation element. Optimized for thermal insulation performance (lambda value approx. 0.13 W/mK) and maximum compressive strength, the stackable, 5mm and 10mm thick panel elements with the special trapezoidal corrugation can be used in various ways. This is confirmed by the general technical approval, which demonstrates a compressive strength comparable to that of steel base plates.


The facade wall bracket for the attachment of ventilated curtain walls (VCW) not only looks completely different from previously known products for this application. It reverses the installation process: first, fully insulate and then attach the VCW substructure to the load-bearing wall. This makes the VCW wall bracket much more user-friendly. And maximizes thermal decoupling. Firstly, by using glass fiber-reinforced plastic with a thermal conductivity that is much lower than that of an aluminum wall bracket. Secondly, because there is no longer any gap between bracket and insulation, which previously could act as a thermal bridge. Simply a rounded affair!


The innovative window installation system for thermally optimized installation of windows is based on GFRP profiles, which are extremely stable against all loads and permanently resistant to environmental influences. With their low thermal conductivity, they are ideally suited for thermally highly efficient construction. The previously typical thermal bridges around windows are reduced to a minimum. The solution goes far beyond the excellent material properties of GFRP with the overall design of the system and its accessory components: easy, fast and error-free installation, a significant reduction in workload and a reduced need for fastening materials impressively demonstrate the competence of fisco: Innovative material technology combined with the maximization of user benefits. This is how we understand “added value.”


Carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) is a highly technical material that is not only in great demand in almost all fields of mobility and sports equipment. The extreme tensile strengths of CFRP composite elements also provide elemental benefits in technically highly demanding applications in the construction sector. If the stability of a bridge structure is no longer given due to overload or damage mechanisms, reinforcement measures are necessary. This includes the use of CFRP lamellas, which are bonded to the reinforced concrete surface using suitable adhesive systems while taking into account the technical guidelines and normative requirements of the respective country. While the load on a bridge continues to increase, its service life can be significantly extended by the use of CFRP lamellas. Longer and stronger – that is also sustainability, especially when a material-, labor- and time-intensive new concrete construction is avoided for many years.

Modulare Bahnsteigerhöhung in der U-Bahn aus fisco fi:resist


fisco’s modular ramp system solves previous problems in the construction of barrier-free access. Thanks to an innovative fastening system, fewer time-consuming drillings are necessary in the ground. Variable positioning of fastening points helps to avoid reinforcement hits when drilling in the concrete. The closed, non-slip surface not only looks good, but also reduces dirt deposits and reduces tripping hazards for wheelchair users and pedestrians. The low weight of the individual elements of less than 20 kg enables assembly at record speed in conjunction with the clever fastening system. Using the non-combustible fiber reinforced composite material fi:resist® (A1 certified according to DIN EN 13501-1) meets the highest fire protection requirements. Since fi:resist® is not electrically conductive, the ramp system is particularly suitable for installation near tracks in the underground and metro train areas. The modular ramp system can be expanded as needed and adapted to specific requirements. Accessibility has never been easier.
