Interior Architectural Elements from an Experienced GFRG Company
Introduced to North America in the late 1970s, GFRG has since become one of the most used construction materials for interior designs. The modability and versatility of GFRG makes it perfect for decorative architectural features like door surrounds.
At GC Products, Inc., we have been fabricating custom and standard products from GFRG, and its exterior equivalent GFRC, for more than 20 years. We are skilled in the precise design that door surrounds require, as well as the creative artistry that makes a molding a unique element on your property. When you need door surrounds and other ornamental architecture to complete your interior design, call our team at 916.645.3870 to get more information about GFRG.

Why Properties Choose GC Products for Interior Door Molding
Our fabrication process at GC Products first requires a design. You can bring this design to us from your architect, or our in-house designers can work with you to develop a door surround design that looks as you imagine it. We can also use historical or existing door surrounds as a guide in the case of renovations or restorations.
We then use state of the art technology to translate the design into a physical mold. Our team pours or sprays GFRG into the mold, achieving a uniform smoothness that leads to a naturally high quality finished product.
The extensive options and top quality of our GFRG door surrounds and other elements make us the right choice to design for:
- Government Buildings
- Historical Properties
We can pair door surrounds with other interior ornamental elements such as GFRG ceilings, GFRG moulding, and more. This can include imitating styles and motifs that already exist on your property, or working as part of a cohesive design strategy on a new build.
What Makes GFRG the Right Material for Decorative Door Moldings
Glass fiber reinforced gypsum uses the same gypsum base as drywall, but the addition of glass fibers gives it a moldability similar to plaster. We can shape GFRG into anything from sweeping curves to delicate artistic decorations, making it ideal for door moldings that are primarily for ornamentation. We can also incorporate different elements into the door surround design, including:
- Decorative Lintels
- Transom Windows
- Moldings and Carvings
When intricate details are part of your design, the use of molds enables us to get the exact same design for every door surround. Many properties will use the same door surround design throughout the building and GFRG makes consistency possible.
Cured GFRG has the same off-white surface as drywall, and you can texture it, paint it, and use other finishing techniques as desired. Often, our customers will finish GFRG door surrounds to resemble wood, marble, or even metal.
Beyond the artistic possibilities of GFRG door surrounds, the material also has several benefits. It is an eco-friendly construction solution that is made from recycled materials and natural aggregates. This mixture gives GFRG a far lighter weight than drywall or plaster, making it easier to mount around doors.
GFRG is durable. It is resistant to fire, and crack and chip resistant due to the fiberglass. The only durability limitation is that GFRG is not waterproof, but we offer GFRC for outdoor door surrounds and other elements in areas that will be exposed to the elements.
