Reproductions and Restorations
When original materials and skilled craftsmen are unavailable, historical and preservation committees agree that EDON FRP is an excellent solution for restoration needs. EDON’s ability to reproduce the sizes and shapes of complex configurations allows the architect the freedom to replicate historical detail without sacrificing authenticity.
- Numerous historical restoration buildings are adorned by EDON’s exceptional fiberglass replicas.
- EDON has the ability to replicate items to meet your design requirements
- Fiberglass provides a durable and economical solution to preserve history.
- Historic and Preservation Committees nationwide are using FRP as a solution to their restoration needs.
- Many if not all of the original materials used on a Historical Reproduction are not available or have become cost prohibitive.
Comparison between FRP and other materials:
- Compared to Aluminum, Concrete and Steel, pound for pound, FRP is stronger than all of them.
Concrete, Stone or Terra Cotta elements, because of their heavy load, require heavy steel framing or additional structural reinforcement.
- Because of the light weight of FRP, approximately 1 to 3 lbs/sq. ft., support framing is generally provided using wood blocking or a galvanized steel/aluminum system.
- FRP can be painted in the field or have a specific color molded directly into the piece.
- FRP resists corrosion and is virtually maintenance free, making the cost for maintenance after installation almost non-existant.
