GFRC Concrete Planters

Commercial GFRC Concrete Planters

GFRC Concrete Planters,  fiberglass reinforced concrete, are a durable solution for streetscapes where additional weight is required.

GFRC Concrete Planters, at six to seven times heavier than fiberglass planters, are still much lighter than concrete planters with problematic steel rebar reinforcement and a lot more durable.

GFRC Concrete Planters are created by adding long-strand glass fibers and woven mat to concrete. This strengthens the material, decreasing the required thickness. Fiberglass decreases the thickness by 60% (from typically 3” in cast concrete to 1” in GFRC Concrete) directly reducing the weight by the same amount.

More importantly the fiberglass eliminates the steel rebar that eventually rusts and breaks the planter apart from inside through a process called spalling as the rusting metal expands as you can see by following this link to Planter Selection where you will find detailed comparative information about all planter materials and construction types.

There are two primary reason to choose GFRC Concrete planters.  First, they are very strong, heavy, and rigid. Second, they offer the aesthetic choice of the two different finishes – travertine and acid etched.  The travertine finish has a rustic, puckered appearance.  The acid etch has a consistent, fine sand texture. All colors are integral to the material and will effectively hide chipping and scratching.
