History of glatthaar-fertigkeller

No. 1 market leader - glatthaar is currently the most successful company on the market for prefabricated basements.

We're proud to say that Glatthaar is the No.1 market leader for prefabricated basements.  Our product has developed alongside the growing use of prefabricated concrete components on the market.  The availability of wall and ceiling components as prefabricated pieces has enabled the more efficient construction of basements and at Glathhaar we set a new quality standard of basement construction right from the word go. Our concrete designed components, symmetrical casting of three-panel walls and ceilings, complete with in-situ concrete set a new quality  standard in basement construction. We've also released our own patented product innovations, including the ThermoSafe® wall and the AquaSafe® basement.
