Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC)


GFRC is a composite of cement, glass fibres, aggregates and polymers. Petra Design is in the lead of the design, manufacturing and installation of the glass fiber reinforced concrete. GFRC panels are Lightweight and durables provide unlimited diversity in color and form. Petra's Design versatile GFRC panels allow for innovative exterior designs with sculptural shapes. GFRC panels have superior flexibility and lightness simplify structural framing needs and can reduce foundation costs


Why use GFRC

GFRC is a concrete that uses glass fibers for reinforcement instead of steel, it is light, strong, weather resistant, The use of glass fiber instead of steel also means that it will not rust and it will do will in salty and high moisture environments, and also GFRC does not burn and will protect the material behind it from the heat of the flame.
