GFRC

GFRC panels – for great aesthetics and exceptional performance

Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) is one of the most innovative construction materials available and provides designers with complex aesthetics as well as exceptionally high performance.

GFRC panels, generally ribbed or sandwich panels, provide durability, fire resistance, sound reduction and energy efficiency as well as the superior properties inherent in the material. With one-fifth of the weight for the same solution in precast concrete, this option is more suitable for areas with restricted access, and gives the building structure considerably less loads.

GFRC panels are lightweight but extremely strong, and come in a wide variety of finishes and colours. Tough and impact-proof, they have unrivalled durability, being resistant to acid rain, ultra-violet light and freeze-thaw.

The glass fibres, which are dispersed throughout the concrete, serve a similar purpose to the steel in reinforced concrete.
