FRP - FIBERGLASS REINFORCED PANELS

Nokia Hallway undulating Aluma Vault 1000 ceiling with FRP panels

Fiberglass reinforced acrylic sheets and diffusers combine the beauty and weather-ability of acrylic with the strength of glass fibers. Casting glass fibers and acrylic together yields sheets with an incomparable combination of desirable properties, including shatterproof toughness, rigidity, weather-ability, and low thermal expansion.

These panels can be used as lay-in panels for many of our suspension systems. We do not recommend the use of these panels with suspension systems below a 15/16” face dimension.

Sheet Sizes:
Up to 4’ x 10’
Custom sized panels can be fabricated to meet your design requirements.

Flammability
Fiberglass reinforced sheets are combustible. Fire precautions similar to those appropriate to wood-based products should be observerd.

Frost-SOS, Parchment-SOS, and White 1000-SOS are available in a type FR (Fire Retardant) formulation and exhibits reduced flame spread.
