Texas Area Project in Architectural Fiberglass by Stromberg

Texas Architectural Fiberglass Project:  Forney Community Park

GFRP Project in TexasFRP Cotton Bales featured at Forney Community Park, Forney, TX

The City of Forney held its groundbreaking ceremony for the first phase of the Forney Community Park on March 7, 2009. The Park is a $14.6 million construction effort to create a first class recreational facility. The first phase of the park is approximately 70 acres of a 127- acre total.

Featured Project in GFRP

At the entrance of Forney Community Park, five huge cotton bales rest against the sign to the park. But of course, they are not actually composed of cotton.  These thematic elements are actually composed of Stromberg’s Architectural Fiberglass. Stromberg Architectural Products has perfected the production methods for architectural fiberglass to the point that a wide variety of materials, including cement, can be mimicked so well that observers will never question the material composition. GFRP, as opposed to cement, has an extremely low weight. In the case of the cotton bales at Forney Community Park, this is an asset as the large bales are tilted at an angle on their edges. This would create a high level of stress under the weight to true cement blocks of their size. Also, the resistance to weather is infinitely better with Stromberg architectural fiberglass, meaning that these elements will stand the test of time with little to no maintenance required.

Benefits of Architectural Fiberglass: Why Stromberg GFRP?

  • Stromberg FRP has a very high strength to weight ratio.
  • GFRP is lightweight, which means faster installation, less structural framing, and lower shipping costs.
  • Architectural Fiberglass resists salt water, chemicals, and the environment, and is unaffected by acid rain, salts, and most chemicals.
  • Architectural Fiberglass by Stromberg is seamlessly constructed; resined together to form a one-piece, watertight structure.
  • Architectural Fiberglass is very versatile, and able to be molded into virtually any shape; even complex, intricate shapes.
  • FRP is very low maintenance. According to research, GFRP shows no loss of laminate properties after 30 years.

Stromberg GFRP is very durable, and stood up to a category 5 hurricane with no damage, while structures nearby were destroyed.
