Architectural fiberglass is being used in more restoration and construction projects as its flexibility, versatility, durability and value are recognized. Unlike other materials, the installation process for fiberglass materials is fast and easy, reducing labor and helping to complete restoration and construction projects on schedule.

Architectural Fiberglass Attachment Applications

When it comes to the type of architectural fiberglass product applications, there is a diverse array to fit every project, including everything from columns, cupolas, and medallions to bas relief, keystones, and fireplaces. With these products comes a unique installation process that Stromberg has developed to attach these products to an existing interior or exterior area of a structure.

Since architectural fiberglass is lightweight, it is easier to install and attach. Architectural fiberglass products require a mounting and installation process that will ensure a good fit and attachment to ensure safety and security over the long term.

Installation Guidelines for Attaching Architectural Fiberglass

The primary attachment system used for our architectural fiberglass is the Z clip system.  This system involves a series of clips that works as part of an interlocking system. One Z clip is attached to the fiberglass panel or product while the other is attached to the supporting structure that it will be mounted onto.  This interlocking system allows the architectural fiberglass to be put into the desired position quickly.

Another advantage to this Z clip system is that because it locks into place, it offers a solid and secure way to attach architectural fiberglass products so that they are guaranteed to stay in place regardless of whether  inside a building or exposed to the elements outside. However, if the architectural fiberglass has to be removed for any reason, it can also be dismounted in a matter of seconds. The Z Clips are also completely concealed behind the architectural fiberglass so the installation can be prefinished, saving further time and labor costs.

Expert Technical Advice for Architectural Fiberglass
