Glass fibre reinforced gypsum or gfrg panel - a modern building element

Glass fibre reinforced gypsum or gfrg panel - a modern building element

15 July 2019

This modern technique is revised by the gfrg building system Australia for large scale construction of houses with a very short time. gfrg panel will become strong enough to act as load bearing when it is rain forest with glass fibres and calcined gypsum plaster.
One of the main advantage with gfrg panel is they can even resist the lateral loads due to earthquake and other Natural sources gfrg can be used for the roofs download, floors, sunshades and the boundary walls as well.
Gfrg panels are normally in white colour but they can be white washed or painted without cement plastering the walls. A  General dimension of a gfrg building panel is is 12 into 3 into 0.127 and that can wait around 1.6 tons, panel can be provided with four cavities within one metre of the panel.
Applications of gfrg panels

  1. It can be used as a light weight bearing wall
  2. Of course as a partition wall
  3. For a fixed roof
  4. Top of that as cladding in industrial structures

Construction with gfrg panel

  1. Up to the plinth level conventional method should be followed. There is no special Foundation that is required for the installation of gfrg panels
  2. Gfrg panels can be placed at the right position with using a machine like crane aur other any external support that can maintain the verticality. Suggested in the design necessary cut can be given to the doors Windows and for any other events
  3. Last and most important thing that to be considered is water proofing treatment that should be carried out for the roof and floors of the building

Advantages of using gfrg panels over conventional method

  1. Faster construction
  2. More economical
  3. Fire resistant
  4. Earthquake resistant
  5. Cooler than conventional building
  6. Strength and durability
  7. Water resistant
  8. More carpet area


Few limits of GFRG Panels

  1. Specific machinery is needed for the panel movement and fitting
  2. Not ideal for circular wall for higher curvature abrasion
  3. Panels need to be neatly stacked
