Glass Reinforced Concrete

By Abbey Artstone Ltd

Glass fibre reinforced concrete, generally referred to as G.R.C. is a combination of alkali resistant drawn glass fibre (A.R.G.) and a cement. It can be moulded into a variety of complex shapes to accommodate an immense range of Architectural and Engineering applications, such as wall claddings for multi-stored reinforced concrete or structural steel frames, sound absorption barriers for main roads, flyovers and piping etc. etc. The applications are endless.. It is becoming ever more popular with the new site lifting laws as its lightweight and versatile with a thickness of between 10 and 15mm depending on the shape of the product being manufactured thus allowing a previously heavy item to be man handleable saving time and money. A flat GRC is approx 20% of the weight of an identical precast unit.
