Weight of GFRC per square foot
GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) weighs between 6 and 14 lbs per square foot vs. 70 to 80 lbs for a 6” precast concrete panel.
The benefits of weight savings with GFRC can include:
- Less of a load on the structure and that can mean dramatic savings in structural steel, building foundation, construction time, etc.
- Faster and less expensive installation with lighter equipment and fewer men
- Less environmental impact from using less material
- Thinner skin means more room for more insulation for greater energy savings
- Reduced seismic load
