Our glassfibre reinforced concrete (GRC or GFRC) elements are manufactured using the hand spray-up method, which is the most conventional method for architectural GRC cladding. This method allows for thinner sections and larger elements. The GRC mixture is sprayed onto casting moulds and between coats, it is compacted by hand using rollers to remove air pockets and to ensure an even distribution.
The casting moulds are custom-made for each project and is carefully produced in our mould shop. Intelligent mould design makes it possible for us to make adjustment to single moulds to they can be used for several variants, if the project calls for a multitude of varying element types.
The GRC manufacturing process requires great craftsmanship and the many steps makes it crucial to adhere to strict quality controls. BB fiberbeton is a Full Member of GRCA, which verifies that we have sufficient resources in our plant, equipment, and labour to consistently design and manufacture high quality GRC. We also have quality management systems and production controls in place to comply with the requirements of the GRCA Specification, Method of Testing and Practical Design Guide.
