In the 1970’s, glass reinforced gypsum (GRG) brought a new dimension to innovation and design in the UK; being not only extremely flexible, but equally lightweight, strong and durable, it lent itself to all manner of shapes and creations for both structural support and interior design. Today GRG is used for a multitude of projects and designs, from standard formulations to bespoke mouldings for unique architectural features. Given the structural demands often associated with GRG, the high strength is obtained from average thicknesses of 5mm, incorporating chopped or woven glass fibres, or in continuous strand format. Being lighter and stronger than traditional plaster mouldings GRG has opened up a myriad of possibilities in terms of design and use.
For interiors, free from damp and water features, GRG is the ideal product for use where a durable, fire retardant product is required, such as ceilings, mouldings, domes, columns and customised shapes.
