Architectural GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete)
GFRC- Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete is designed to have a surface appearance of architectural precast and cast stone, but weighing 50 to 75% less than the other two products. The strength of the product comes from specialty fibers imbedded in a much thinner concrete coating. The product is very versatile and has similar strength characteristics to architectural precast and cast stone. This product is often used when a building’s structure is not sufficient to support architectural precast and cast stone or to save money on installation. Architectural GFRC is more expensive than the architectural precast or cast stone, but structural and installation savings offset the up-charge.
Mesa Precast has specialized technology and process to design, fabricate Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC – also known as light weight concrete) products. The Mesa Precast manufacturing technique selects fiber glass strands of right length to match the strength requirements of a specific product. AAS GFRC is much richer in use of quality cement. Mesa Precast uses unique polymer additives that makes the curating of GFRC more effective. Our GFRC product material is packed, rolled and compressed, so there are no air bubbles in it. We have very well developed spraying equipment and experienced team that makes it possible to create GFRC products of different sizes, shapes with highly involved finishes as well when required.
