GFRC Tactile Warning Strips

Tactile warning strips from Stromberg are made from GFRC, glass fiber reinforced concrete. They have the look and feel of natural stone and concrete and are built to last.  GFRC tactile warning strips come in several different shapes, colors and sizes and are thin, lightweight and strong. Available colors include: yellow, brick red, gray, white limestone, black granite and other custom colors to suit different applications.

Stromberg has tactile warning strips for both regular and customized applications. GFRC tactile warning strips have a distinguishing surface of truncated domes that alert people with vision impairments of hazards and changes in the walking surface.

  • Stairwells
  • Escalator Approaches

All of the above applications will benefit from Stromberg tactile warning strips in GFRC. These strips meet all of the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), as well as PROW and CA Title 24. When you choose GFRC tactile warning strips, you choose a high performance product that is compliant with all applicable codes and approved for use in all 50 states, as well as in all major municipalities, DPW’s and state DOT’s.

Features and Benefits of Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete

  • GFRC is cast in thin sections of about ½” to ¾”. Because of this, it is lightweight, weighing much less than precast concrete, and easy to work with.
  • Stromberg GFRC is reinforced with glass fibers instead of steel; it can’t rust and it doesn’t need a protective concrete covering.
  • Glass fiber reinforced concrete is perfect for your tactile warning strip project because of its weather resistant properties. It can stand up to any kind of harsh climate: heavy rains, prolonged hours of sunlight and heavy pedestrian traffic.
  • GFRC is made of minerals and won’t burn. It performs like a thermal regulator and protects any material behind it from the heat of a flame.
