Very professional and technically competent job from the whole team.
The resultant composite is a concrete-like material
combining the compressive properties of cement mortars with the valuable flexural and tensile strength of the glass fibers.
The high cement and low aggregate content also result in higher moisture movement than
concrete, although thermal movement is similar. GRC was originally pioneered by the UK
Building Research Establishment in the early 1970s. this environment-friendly composite using
natural raw material is transformed into a great variety of products. Due to its flexibility to meet
performance, appearance and cost parameters, GRC products are popular among designers,
architects, engineers and end users.
1- Mouldability to produce wide range of intricate shapes and profiles.
2- Lightweight, ease and speed of handling, with reduced erection and transportation costs
3- Reduced loadings on buildings leading to substantial reductions in structural and foundatiocosts, especially useful for building renovation or restoration.
4- Ability to reproduce fine surface details.
5-Low maintenance requirements.
6- Good freeze-thaw resistance.
7- Low permeability.
8- Excellent fire properties.
1- Compressive strength: 60-100N/mm2.
2- Young’s Modulus: 15-25KN/mm2.
3- Impact Strength: 15-30 N/mm2.
4- Ultimate Tensile strength: 10-17 N/mm2.
5-Ultimate Bending Strength: 28-42 N/mm2.
6- Density: 2.0 – 2.2 tons/m3.
7- Coefficient of thermal:
7-12 x 106.
8- GRC is non-combustible, not easily ignitable and is fire resistant for up to 4 hours depending on construction.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
Good regards for safety, completed additional works regarding decoration, clean up after works completed to a very high standard.
For well over ten years I have had the opportunity to work with GSF Construction on projects from modernizations to complex alteration and new construction involving phasing, difficult site conditions and tight time frames. In all cases GSF Construction exceeded my expectations and did so in ways that ensured the school’s schedule and budget goals were met…Once selected (unanimously) by the selection committee, GSF Construction set out to help us with the constructability review and cost estimating. With concern over the rising cost of steel and energy, and its impact on budget, GSF collaborated with the district and design team on cost savings including multiple subcontractors bidding to ensure the budget was met.
