RFJ SFMOMA wave ceiling

 

The ornamental wave ceiling is going up in a new building and boy are we excited.

The panels are of Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) and are produced by GC Products in Lincoln, California.

The process consists of first producing molds that represent the various shapes that make up the ceiling.  Then hand placing a combination of both gypsum and a glass fiber sheet.

Plaster and Glass Fiber sheets are used to make the panels

After the plaster is sufficiently dry the panel is popped out of the mold, sanded, inspected and ready to go the job site.
