Ductal® Wall Cladding for Under Armour® Stores
ductal, under armour, exterior cladding

Under Armour® Inc., a leader in innovative, high-performance athletic wear, wanted an innovative, high-tech design for its first retail stores. The exterior walls had to be tough but lightweight in order to meet rigid weight requirements for shopping malls, and look like they were transplanted from a stadium. 


Bill Gockeler of Artisans in Concrete in Hackettstown, N.J., formerly of Concrete Design Studios,  met these requirements with a robust cladding solution utilizing a series of Ductal® ultra-high performance concrete panels (up to) 5-by-8 feet and just a half-inch thick.  From concept to installation, the first project - a 6,000 square foot store in Aurora, Ill., was completed in just six weeks. To date, two other Under Amour® stores now have Ductal cladding; one in Natick, Mass., and the other in Bethesda, Md.  According to Gockeler, "There was no other alternative solution that could deliver on the designer's entire wish list".
