One of the most popular materials being used in architectural design and construction is GFRC. Glass fiber reinforced concrete, or GFRC, is quickly becoming the most popular material for exterior architectural designs. It is durable, yet malleable, and provides you with the customization capabilities needed for any project.
GC Products Inc. has been a leading manufacturer for GFRC and GFRG for almost two decades. One of our most popular requests for GFRC is the development of GFRC domes. We create durable, perfectly crafted domes that match your vision, all for a competitive price. With the ability to provide domes for both commercial and residential properties, GC Products is the leading choice in all architectural GFRC. Call 916-645-3870 for more information.
There is no one size fits all approach to a GFRC dome, which is why we make sure to specialize in both standard and custom domes. GFRC is the material of choice for exterior domes. If you’re looking for an interior dome, you may prefer GFRG.
At GC Products Inc., we also offer different styles of domes, as each one can be crafted in our CAD design software and poured perfectly in a mold to match your design expectations. Sizes range from just a couple feet in diameter to several dozen. Some of the dome structures we can create include:
These are only a few examples of the many domes capable of being crafted with GFRC. All of the domes can also be cut and framed to fit your construction project, or retrofitted to match the dome you’re hoping to restore.
GFRC is a material of a wide range of positive benefits. The advantages of GFRC compared to competing materials such as stone, terra cotta, and traditional concrete include:
Altogether, GFRC domes have numerous benefits over competing products. If you want to take advantage of these benefits and craft the perfect dome for your next project, contact GC Products today at 916-645-3870.
Q: Can GFRC be used indoors?
A: It can be used indoors, but in most settings it is preferable for both cost and design to use GFRG, which is traditionally designed for outdoor use. GFRG domes are also quite common indoors, so visit our page to learn more.
Q: Is GFRC structurally sound?
A: Yes. GFRC is capable of withstanding immense pressure without breaking or cracking. Though it is considered an architectural component, not a structural one, so while its durability is an asset it is important to figure out whether the structure will have independent support.
Q: Do I need an internal frame?
A: It depends on the type of dome and structure. We’re happy to discuss this with you on our call.
