GFRS (Glass Fiber Reinforced Stone) FountainsGFRS (Glass Fiber Reinforced Stone) Fountains

After years spent working with reinforced materials like Cast Stone, Stromberg Architectural Products conceived and designed a product that combines the best of both worlds - the light weight qualities of Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) and the sturdiness of quarried stone. The result is GFRS (Glass Fiber Reinforced Stone), combining elegant looks with strength and dependability fashioned through state of the art technology.

Creating GFRS Fountains

GFRS is a blend of crushed stone, resin and glass fibers, all of which are mixed and sprayed into a mold that is based on your design. Once completed, GFRS looks as heavy as natural stone but is extremely lightweight.

Why use GFRS?

GFRS is extremely strong and has the same strength to weight ratio as GFRP.
Light weight
GFRS weighs barely 3 lbs per square foot, making installation of your fountain extremely easy. This lightweight quality also means there is lesser structural framework necessary, and shipping costs are also considerably lower.
Resistance to Chemicals
GFRS is unaffected by the onslaught of salt water, acid rain, chemicals, and environmental elements - in short it's resistant to just about every thing that can be thrown at it in the open.
One of GFRS' most unique characteristics and one that gives it an edge over other harder durable materials is its flexibility. It can be molded to just about any shape you desire. This is in sharp contrast to natural stone.
GFRS is just as durable and long lasting as GFRP.
With GFRS, you can enjoy the beauty of traditional stone work fountains without the high prices and at a fraction of the weight.

With the depth of experience that the Stromberg in house design team has in creating custom GFRS fountains, we'll ensure that your vision for a fountain is brought to fruition.
