Glass Fiber Reinforced GypsumGFRG Fireplace Mantels and Surrounds

If you're looking for a material that can help you bring your complex and finely-detailed mantlepiece design to life, GFRG is the perfect choice. Here are just a few reasons why you might want to consider Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum for your architectural chimneypiece.

The use of molds ensures a consistent look: If you're planning to install several fireplace mantles, choosing GFRG will ensure each finished fireplace mantle will be exactly the same. Building GFRG fireplace mantels does not involve techniques like chiselling that can easily result in errors and slight differences from one product to the next. All of our GFRG fireplace mantels are cast with molds, so you know exactly what the finished product will look like right from the start.

It's lightweight:
With GFRG fireplace surrounds, even very large designs will not generally pose a problem for the surrounding walls. At only two to three pounds per square foot, GFRG fireplace surrounds weigh only a fraction of those constructed from more traditional materials like marble and granite.
It's safe:
GFRG fireplace mantels are completely fireproof. GFRG mantles will never catch fire, even if they are exposed to direct flame for several hours.

If you're a person who is always rearranging your living room and updating the look of your home, you'll love GFRG fireplace mantels. Available in a special white finish that can be painted any color you'd like, GFRG fireplace mantels are extremely versatile. Test out different colors and techniques to find one that works best, or just leave your GFRG fireplace surround white for an understated, classic look.

* GFRG surrounds should not be exposed to moisture, and are best suited for indoor use.
