Litestone Concrete Pots and Planters
With a huge range of sizes and designs, from table top bowls to large feature planters, the Litestone range is at the forefront of contemporary product design. Its lightweight nature makes it perfect for balcony, deck areas and rooftop gardens yet is strong enough to suit commercial situations. GRC is an excellent choice for outdoor products and will outlast most other outdoor products in the market. GRC is virtually impervious to the elements, promising years of loyal service.
What is GRC?
GRC is a blend of long strand fibreglass and concrete applied using a special technique that chops the fibreglass and adds the cement mix at the same time to ensure maximum strength and longevity.
Our GRC doesn’t reinforce the layers using steel which adds additional weight and can rust and expand over time, leading to cracking. Some other concrete products use natural fibres (like jute), which hold moisture and will rot over time.
The secret is using alkali resistant fibreglass and high-quality cement, allowing us to create thinner walls that make each piece much lighter and easier to move without losing any strength. Reactive oxides, water and solvent based paints are used to colour each piece, providing a durable exterior finish. The exposed surfaces are coated with a sealant that protects the concrete material and creates a water repellent layer that limits staining and scratching on the surface layer. Sealants should be applied on surfaces that get a lot of use, such as tabletops and bench seats.
