Glass Reinforced Concrete Planter Boxes from Mascot Engineering are the perfect lightweight solution for highrise rooftop or balcony landscapes, making ‘life at the top’ the way it was designed to be.
Weight restrictions and structural support considerations can limit what type of planter boxes are used for rooftop gardens, balconies and atriums in highrise developments. Traditional steel-reinforced concrete offerings are often difficult to utilise due to their weight and the logistics involved in their installation. Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) technology provides the perfect solution for these types of requirements as GRC planters are one-tenth the weight of an equivalent steel-reinforced concrete planter box, yet are incredibly strong and built to last.
Glass Reinforced Concrete planter boxes from Mascot Engineering are designed to be an attractive and cost-effective solution that can be loaded onto lifts and manoeuvred with hand trolleys, depending on the size you require. The varied range offered by Mascot Engineering makes it easy to create an outdoor space to meet any site or design requirements. Their GRC planter boxes are supplied in various shapes and sizes with a natural concrete finish, which can also be painted or clad in various materials, such as timber or tile, to suit any project.
Glass Reinforced Concrete is a technology that combines fibreglass and concrete to produce a product that is incredibly strong and features the solidity of concrete. Due to the fact that steel support is not required, the resulting product is thinner and more lightweight, with the equal strength and structural stability of traditional steel-reinforced concrete. Additionally, GRC products like planter boxes are not vulnerable to corrosion, making them an ideal solution for use in outdoor applications.
Established in 1920, Mascot Engineering is the largest manufacturer of GRC in the southern hemisphere. With offices nationwide, Mascot can provide local service and technical support wherever your project is located.
