Panbeton®, the lightweight concrete panel
Panbeton®: Concrete panels for your interiors
The Panbeton® range of concrete cladding represents the core of the Concrete LCDA brand’s expertise. This iconic collection of ultra-lightweight panels made of high performance fibre-reinforced concrete features more than 40 different designs inspired by Brutalist architecture.
The exclusive technology used to make Panbeton® cladding is ideal for the design of your interior spaces.
Large, lightweight slabs
Easy to cut
Front made of genuine concrete
Simple installation & bonding process
Each Panbeton® panel has facing made of genuine, raw, fibre-reinforced concrete and an ultra-lightweight, technical panel at the back. These light, easy to cut and install concrete panels, specially designed for interior décor, provide a simple solution for using a genuine, raw material to create a contemporary ambiance.
Like a tribute to the raw nature of concrete in architecture, Concrete LCDA reinterprets the building projects of the 1950s to 1970s, marked by the typical architectural style of the modern movement of Brutalism.
Concrete and wood are the perfect combination to create timeless motifs associated with the history of concrete over the ages. Designs inspired by the woody worlds our Wood collection of concrete wall panels features concrete models that reveal subtle impression of wood planks, chevron flooring, charred wood, etc.
Interplay of materials and shapes: precise and even, concrete plays with clever contrasts of light to highlight contemporary creations with successful minimalist touches, skilfully laid out in geometric designs.
Thin and lightweight, Panbeton® decorative panels can be applied to walls and ceilings, or even be used to dress up furniture.
They can be attached to any kind of solid, clean, dry and dust-free supporting material using an adhesive (Den Braven Hybrifix 550 Sealant is recommended for our products). Diamond tools are used to cut and drill the panels (a cutting kit is available on request).
The panels are quick to install with little handling. Given their size, we recommend handling the panels by their edges, always with two people.
See our installation manual for more detailed information.
All Panbeton® panels undergo a protective treatment, applied by our teams at the workshop. With its matte appearance, this “Treatment D” is a dust fixative that protects panels from stains.
An enhanced water repellent “Treatment S” is also available on request. It is recommended for use in areas with a significant risk of spatter and/or with heavy foot traffic. It produces a slightly satiny look.
All our products are easy to clean using a damp microfibre cloth (potentially with a neutral, non-corrosive cleaning product like black soap).
Our R&D team are here to help with your projects. We can create your own Panbeton® panel design, develop a colour just for you or personalize your creations by adding patterns, logos, distressing or paint, inlaying metal, and so on. Concrete is easy to mould to any wishes, so let your imagination run wild!

Brutalist architectural inspiration
Panbeton® is able to recreate streamlined atmospheres inspired by renowned Brutalist architects the likes of Le Corbusier and Tadao Ando, sources of inspiration for Concrete LCDA, especially its iconic scaffolded concrete panels. Here, concrete appears in its simplest expression, asserting the beauty of its raw state in a transition between interior and exterior. Once installed, Panbeton® cladding looks like real concrete walls formed on site.
Concrete LCDA partners with renowned designers to ensure it can offer a rich collection of decorative panels with singular textures.
