Architectural Fiberglass


Product Uses

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP). Most commonly used for cornices, columns, and medallions. This product is also used in many other specialized decorative shape applications.


Design

Shop drawings are submitted for verification of profiles, dimensions, and surrounding construction of FRP units. Recommended attachment details are indicated on the shop drawings. Attachment methods shown on shop drawings are suggestions only. It is the responsibility of the installer to meet all local building codes, verify job conditions and adjust installation procedures accordingly. Some site cutting and/or grinding of parts may be required to suit job conditions. Field shimming may be required.
