Weight of GFRC per square foot

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
