FASERFIX: concrete drainage channels

Maximum stability, as tough as nails. FASERFIX – ideal material for heavy-duty drainage: strong, durable, and reliable.


Since the early 1970s, HAURATON has been producing FASERFIX manufactured from fibre-reinforced concrete. The fibres added to the concrete is what makes this type of drainage channel extra special.

The natural fibres from basalt act as micro-reinforcement for the concrete drainage channel by amplifying the resistance and stability of the overall design. 

FASERFIX attains a high compressive strength and resilience compared to other concrete systems on the market.

What are the special features of FASERFIX concrete?

FASERFIX concrete is:


FASERFIX concrete is produced in a resource-conserving manner with defined processes at the HAURATON plant in Ötigheim. The main ingredients of sand, gravel, water and cement are procured via short transport routes from local producers. The basalt fibres are extruded into filaments from melted raw material, in this case, natural volcanic rock.


FASERFIX concrete is fully recyclable. The process of concrete quarrying is carried out by crushing and screening technologies. This results in aggregates that are reused in the construction industry, e.g. as secondary raw material in concrete production, in road construction or as a binder in oil spills.


Concrete is an extremely durable material and can withstand exposure to surface areas where aggressive liquids (diesel, petrol, oil or corrosives) are present e.g. petrol station forecourts, logistic areas or coastal areas.

Fibre-reinforced concrete has a higher tensile strength with a lower tendency to crack than concrete without fibres. The use of basalt fibres gives FASERFIX impact resistance and fracture strength to encounter extreme heavy loads over a long period.


Concrete provides effective fire protection. Concrete cannot burn and does not liquefy even when it is exposed to high temperatures. In the event of a fire, concrete components can offer maximum safety by containing or preventing the spread.
