Relief concrete

A further interesting variant for processing architectural concrete is the design of the reliefs. You determine whether the relief is recessed in the panel surface or lies raised above it. The employees of Hering are also able to transfer complicated forms into the formwork. In this way, the architectural concrete bears your unmistakable trademark.

Contrast intensification by means of different surface treatment methods

For the production of reliefs, the contrast is achieved via formwork techniques. The contrasts can be intensified by using different surface treatments (acidification, polishing).
