GRC New Zealand produce custom, large format Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) panels for exterior facades and cladding. The GRC panels are supported on an engineered steel frame that is fixed to the building structure. GRC New Zealand can provide a total design and engineering service to ensure a cladding that suits the exact parameters of the design.
Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) is a versatile lightweight composite material that can be cast in moulds, allowing it to be made to virtually any pattern or texture. Typically manufactured to a skin thickness of 12mm, GRC can be up to 75% lighter than traditional precast concrete. This provides cost savings in transport, handling, and installation, and provides flexibility over panel design and size. GRC can be painted or coloured to almost any colour using a pigment oxide added to the mix at the time of casting.
GRC is notable for its durability, seismic capabilities, chemical resistance, non-combustibility and good sound/heat insulation properties. The GRC composition can be enhanced to provide additional resistance to impact, weather, and graffiti.
If applied and installed in accordance with GRCNZ recommendations, this system will meet or contribute to meeting the following provisions of the NZBC:
