Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Balustrades by Stromberg

A balustrade is a railing with supporting balusters, or posts. Balustrades can be used as a decorative feature or for safety reasons on stairways, balconies or rooftops. Inspired by Greek and Roman architecture, balustrades can be made of many different materials, but glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) is your best choice. Stromberg has over 30 baluster designs to choose from and a generous selection of top rails, bases, piers and finials. Their GFRC balustrade designs will meet your building codes as well.

GFRC is concrete that uses glass fibers for reinforcement instead of steel. It’s a mixture of cement, glass fibers, aggregates and polymers; the glass fibers being the weight bearing material. These properties make it a light weight material and an excellent choice for your balustrade project.

Balustrade Applications in GFRC

Balustrades in GFRC can be angled, spiral, curved or arched for bridge balustrades; you also have a variety of piers and finials to complete your design. Stromberg has installed GFRC balustrades on high rise balconies, plazas, pool decks and in residential settings as well. They will apply their innovative ideas to your space and the outcome will be an outstanding and original balustrade that fits your needs and is beautiful to look at. Stromberg also has a wide array of choices in colors, finishes and textures to choose from. Glass fiber reinforced concrete will stand up to the elements whether inside or out.
