Fibreglass info desk UvA

Fibreglass design and manufacturing

Fibreglass info desk UvA

We created this unique hand-made fibreglass info desk for the entrance of the University of Amsterdam.

The fibreglass info desk was modelled by hand in PUR blocks according the specified technical drawings by architectural firm Merk X. The PUR surface was finished with some layers of fibreglass material. Because the info desk was sprayed with a high-gloss black epoxy paint, the finishing level had to be of particularly high quality.

The design and production in fibreglass offers a number of advantages that contribute to high-quality products. As a result, fibreglass and composite are increasingly being seen in the automotive industry and more and more product designers, architects and engineers are using this material. You can think of applications such as fibreglass; interior design desks, machine hoods, engine hoods, displays, eye catchers, blow-ups, interior wall panels, building façade panels.

Below you will find the advantages of the properties of fibreglass;

  • It is light and strong.
  • Electrical and thermal insulating.
  • Does not conduct electricity or heat. 
  • Corrosion and chemical resistant.
  • Resistant to: weather conditions, temperature fluctuations, acids, bases. 
  • Low expansion coefficient.
  • Not magnetic.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Freedom in design.
  • High impact resistance.
  • Available in different colours.
  • UV resistant.
  • Very long life.
  • Good value for money.
