GFRG CONSTRUCTION FAQ'S
Frequently Asked Questions
Most frequent questions and answers
GFRG construction is an innovative green construction technology used in Australia since 1990’s. IIT professors have done research on GFRG technology and built a model house in IIT campus in 2012. GFRG is the short form for glass fiber reinforced gypsum. GFRG system is a load bearing system (there is no need of beams and columns). GFRG panels are erected at site using cranes. Check out this video to see how GFRG panels are erected
GFRG panel is made of gypsum and glass fiber(reinforcement). Check out this link for GFRG panel manufacturing.
It comes only in 1 size 5 inches or 124 mm
GFRG panel is world’s largest load bearing lightweight panels. The panels are manufactured with size 12 m length, 3m height and 124 mm thickness. Each panel has 48 modular cavities of 230 mm x 94 mm x 3m dimension. The weight of one panel is 1440 kg or 40 kg/sqm. The density is 1.14g/cm3, being only 10-12% of the weight of comparable concrete /brick masonry.Light weighted Rapid wall has high compressive strength, shearing strength, flexural strength and ductility. It has very high level of resistance to fire, heat, water, termites, rot and corrosion. Concrete infill with vertical reinforcement rods enhances its vertical and lateral load capabilities.

No, GFRG houses are completely safe. They do not aggrevate or create any health hazards when exposed to it. GFRG is a GEP (Green Environmental Protection) material has no odor, and its Radioactive Nuclide Limit is accord with A-style decoration material standard of GB6566-2001, which can be used for recycling. GFRG material is also approved as green building material by US Green Building Council(USGBC)
- Need space for crane to operate & can not make curvy walls,however curvy walls can be made by concrete.
- Need trained labours and storage space to store the panels
Yes it is recognized and approved by BMTPC – Building Material & Technology Promotion Council, India (Approved)
IITM has dedicated over a decade in R&D and now it has come to the stage of technology transfer.
