Prepping for Hurricanes with Stromberg GFRC

It seems like every year, we are witnessing bigger and bigger hurricanes. It used to be that only the tropics had to worry about hurricanes, but Irene changed the game. Now everyone from Texas to Maine needs to be prepared for hurricanes. Fortunately, Stromberg Architectural GFRC can help.

Wind-resistant GFRC

You can read the technical details in our online report, but Stromberg GFRC can handle the 150 mile and hour winds that are the top of the International Building Code standard.  For special applications, Stromberg GFRC can handle winds up to 240 miles per hour.  Actually, the GFRC may be able to handle more, but the attachments have a hard time keeping up.

GFRC Structural Support

Attachments can be cast in the GFRC that are specially made to withstand the high wind.  Flex anchors and other special hardware such as threaded inserts, weld plates, wedge anchors and bolts cast into the GFRC can be used.  Stromberg has engineers that will be happy to work with you to ensure that your GFRC installation stays where you put it, no matter how big a hurricane you have to endure.  Some of their installations have been through multiple hurricanes, including a Category 5, without failing.
