FRBL PREFAB GYPWALL is a revolutionary low cost load bearing prefrabicated walling system with broad construction application .Glass fiber reinforced gypsum (GFRG ) wall a new composite wall product is made of gypsum plaster reinforced with glass fiber. The glass fibers are random distributed inside the panal skin and ribs in the manufacturing process . Panels are hollow and manufactured in 124 mm thick by 12 metre length and 3 metre width and are cut in the sophisticated wall cutting plant to suit the customers requirement . The wall panels can be reinforced with concrete during construction as per requirement of the structure..
Gypsum based wall putty and wall plaster from FRBL are high quality surface coating products. The unique calcining process of Gypsum prevents over heating and maintains uniform quality of the putty and plaster base . Suitable additives are added to base in a state of art automatic mixing plant for the manufacture of wall putty and wall plaster .The products are bagged in salable quantities using automatic bagging machine & stacked.
The unique cellular structure of PREFAB GYPWALL enables it to be used as formwork and side filled concrete to provide sufficient axial strength and lateral rigidity. Our panels are strong, crack free and provide crack free surface with less joints. The finish of our panels is smoother than equivalent precast concrete/masonry walls and hence does not require putty application. The light weight characteristic of our panel helps to reduce the structural element cost including foundation. The durability of the buildings with GFRG panels is time tested and the water absorption rate is less than 5%. The resistance to moisture can be increased by providing a thin membrane coating.
The FRBL Wall panels can be accommodated in any type of Architectural designs. In order to aid the builder/ designer, FRBL has come up with a detailed construction manual. The panels and its construction methodology help to reduce the construction time substantially and save in labour cost
FRBL PREFAB GYPWALL is approved by Building Material and Technology Promotion Council (BMTPC- under Ministry of Housing and Urban poverty Alleviation, Govt of India).
IIT Madras has come out with a design manual for GFRG panels published by BMTPC. IIT Madras has been testing and conducting various studies on GFRG wall panels for the past 10 years.
IIT Madras has constructed a 2 storied 4 apartment building at their campus using GFRG Panels for the entire construction including slab. The Structural Engineering Research Centre (CSIR-SERC) has tested GFRG panels in the construction in earthquake prone areas.
