Amber Precast is one of very few UK companies to supply Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC) products. With over 25 years experience in manufacturing GRC, we now supply to a number of leading housing developers including Barratt David Wilson, Bloor Homes, Crest Nicholson and many more.
Why Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC)?
GRC provides a lightweight alternative to GRP plastic or timber frames, with our most popular items being a standard range of 6 door surrounds, and as GRC can be moulded to almost any shape, we can also produce bespoke items tailor-made to your requirements such as window surrounds and heads.
The material can be formed into virtually any size, shape or finish and its unique combination of high strength, low weight and environmental benefits ensure its growing popularity with many of our contractors and buyers.
Key Features of Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete (GRC)
- GRC has the appearance of Cast Stone, yet as it’s reinforced with glass fibres, it’s typically only 30% of the weight resulting in lower transportation costs and ease of installation.
- GRC can be post fit, so it can be stored safely at Amber Precast until your build is complete, meaning that it doesn’t impact on your critical path. Our GRC even comes with stainless steel fixings as standard.
- Unlike timber, GRC requires no painting, treating or maintenance. We can even match the colour of your existing stonework, as demonstrated in this photo of a development for Bloor Homes, Fairford (see photo below).
