the evolution of GRG


The evolution of the GRC (Glass Reinforced Concrete) has led Zanette over the years to a production of ZIP sheet - Zanette Innovation Panel with very thin thickness and high mechanical strength, suitable for cladding systems with ventilated facade for buildings. 
The ZIP panel allows you to change the aesthetic appearance of a building, without any structural intervention, in a fast, economical and resistant over time.
Large sizes with reduced thickness that can change leather to your building with multiple solutions completely CUSTOMIZABLE in terms of colors and finishes.
The research that has led to the production of thin ZIP panels is the result of a great technological innovation that combines the exceptional technical characteristics of the product with Zanette’s many years of experience in facade finishes: elegance and modernity, quality and style according to the best tradition of "Made in Italy".



Colours & Finishes

Technical Characteristics


High performance
and design made in Italy


Outdoor, with the ventilated facade system; Indoor for the extraordinary creative and functional possibilities:
ZIP is the coating that ensures advantageous performance and well-being housing. Sound absorbent, insulating, resistant to fire and atmospheric agents, easy to clean and unalterable over time.
A modular and practical coating with an excellent weight-thickness-performance ratio, also ideal for modern prefabricated construction. Extremely customizable and versatile, thanks to the support and experience of the Zanette Research Center able to support large international projects with expertise and reliability.


High Resistance

Thanks to the use of three-dimensional fiberglass armor is able to withstand impact, especially for the coating of areas on the ground floor. Furthermore, thanks to its cementitious composition it guarantees excellent fire resistance performance.


Low Thickness

Great versatility in small spaces with 15mm thickness.


Eco-sustainable product

Non-polluting raw materials and low environmental impact production for an eco-sustainable product.



Pleasant visual and architectural appearance, thanks to the large sizes and variety of colors and surface finishes, also tailored to each specific project.


Energy Saving

Thanks to the possibility to insert insulating materials in the air chamber that is formed between the panel and the supporting wall, thus exploiting the ventilated wall effect.


Sound insulation

Thanks to the mass typical panel of concrete.



Suitable for all types of environments, ideal for both indoor and outdoor


High Durability over Time

The main feature of cementitious materials is the durability and the low need for maintenance over time.




ZIP is the ultimate solution for large surfaces with ventilated walls that can give a new skin to buildings making the external and internal facades of any building attractive, unique and exclusive. In addition, the ZIP team specializes in international contracts and offers comprehensive support worldwide for both the design and, through its network of installers, for the on-site installation of the solution. Here are some of our projects made with ZIP.

Zanette a certified reality


ZIP® with GRC panels are produced at Zanette Italian plants, in Fontanafredda (PN), with sophisticated batching plants and state-of-the-art and customized machinery, constantly monitored in the production process both by the internal laboratory and by the main European certification institutes (CSTB - Istituto Giordano - DNV). The Zanette Research Center keeps in constant evolution and updating the adaptation to regulations and consequent certification methods.
In addition to the ISO Quality Management System, the ZIP® panels are subject to a CE marking that allows their circulation with a sort of Technical Passport within the European Union Market. In addition, the control is monitored by CSTB.
