Historic Reproductions and Restorations

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.
