use of gfrc
Due to lighter weight GFRC replaces heavy precast concrete and can be produced to any shape and withstand harsh weather conditions.
Architectural concrete panels are often used as cladding panels for fit-out of public spaces like train stations, airports, office buildings.
GFRC is perfect for outdoor street furniture like benches, bins, totems, stands, etc.
A few facts about gfrc
Glass fibre reinforced concrete also knows as GRC, GFRC, fibre concrete or fibre cement consist of mix of cement, sand, aggregates and alkali-resistant glass fibres. Application of glass fibres instead of reinforcement steel allows GFRC panels to be lighter and thinner with the same physical properties. Thanks to lighter weight it is easier handle, transport and to install than precast concrete. Glass fibres allow also to shape GFRC into most creative forms architects and engineers can imagine. With appropriate mix additions and surface treatment GFRC can withstand harsh weather.
A few weeks ago our customer for the London tunnel project approached me and asked me to prepare a presentation about some of the quality topics in reference to our works package – GFRC panels. I decided to give a short speech about the quality processes that we used in manufacturing of GFRC concrete panels. Read more about GFRC panels and quality control during production[…]
