Uses of Fiberglass (FRP)

Throughout the years Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer (FRP) has become a fast growing industry with a limitless amount of architectural applications. Fiberglass cornice moldings, columns, domes, cupolas balustrades, and baluster systems, have become some of the most popular uses of fiberglass.

Fiberglass Cornice

Architectural Fiberglass, Inc., has hundreds of standard stock cornice profiles and is continuously manufacturing custom profiles. Cornices manufactured with FRP do not require heavy steel supports or structural rehabilitation of the attachment areas on a building. Fiberglass cornices can be manufactured in any color and replicate most finishes including terra cotta, cast stone, marble, granite, copper, steel and wood. Fiberglass cornice is very practical when compared with the material, maintenance, and installation cost of other traditional materials. In addition to new construction, fiberglass cornice is widely used for restoration of old cornices made from terra cotta, cast stone and metal.

Fiberglass Columns, Balusters, and Balustrades

Fiberglass columns, fiberglass balustrades, and fiberglass baluster systems are another popular application for the use of FRP in architecture. Columns, balustrades, and baluster systems can be manufactured as load-bearing to hold substantial weight or as column covers to wrap around structural supports. Ornamental fiberglass column capitals and bases reproduce ancient Roman and Greek architecture. Improved fiberglass molding techniques allow for fine detail and craftsmanship seen in fiberglass columns, capitals and balusters. Technological advances such as new finishes that better simulate traditional materials make FRP nearly indistinguishable from the real thing.

Fiberglass Domes and Cupolas

Architectural Fiberglass, Inc., specializes in fiberglass dome and cupola manufacturing and in addition historical replication of badly deteriorated or unattractive dome structures and replacing them with identical custom fiberglass domes and cupolas. Our Fiberglass domes and fiberglass cupolas range from smaller sizes to domes in excess of 40' in diameter and cupolas spanning over 60' in height. Our catalog of hemisphere domes, onion domes, and cupolas includes over 300 different sizes and design. An advantage of fiberglass domes and cupolas is the low maintenance, low weight, high strength, and unlimited design flexibility not possible with other materials.


Architectural Fiberglass, Inc. has recognized the use of FRP in all phases of construction. We now have the task of informing and educating contractors, architects and developers the benefits of fiberglass. At this time there is no clear long-term life expectation of fiberglass. This is because fiberglass products have been installed on buildings for more than 50 years with no significant sign of deterioration. Perhaps in another 50 years we can give you better answers.
