Barrel Vaulting in GFRPStromberg Barrel Vaulting

One of the telltale signatures of meeting halls, spiritual sanctuaries and other important buildings, barrel vaulting has been used for thousands of years to designate importance. The barrel vaulting we are most familiar with, however, comes from the gothic cathedrals of the 13th and 14th century. Grandiose in scale and lavish in decoration, gothic churches represent some of the most amazing barrel vaulting the world has ever seen. However, due to its height and inaccessibility, barrel vaulting is notoriously difficult to maintain. It is not uncommon for a barrel vaulted ceiling to fall into disrepair, which then requires expensive repairs. Fortunately, the master craftsmen at Stromberg Architectural Products have a solution: architectural fiberglass, or GFRP.

Making Barrel Vaulting Look Just Like New the Stromberg Way

Stromberg Architectural Products’ secret to easy, inexpensive barrel vaulting renovation is architectural fiberglass. Architectural fiberglass, or GFRP, is a modern, light-weight building material that can achieve the same aesthetic results of stone barrel vaulting at a fraction of the weight and cost. Better still, Stromberg’s architectural fiberglass barrel vaulting can be customized to fit any space with any style. Architectural fiberglass can emulate just about any other building material, and the pros at Stromberg can customize your barrel vaulting to accommodate any architectural aesthetics your church could desire. White marble or rough granite, Stromberg can provide the perfect fit for the perfect price.
