GRP Pultruded Profiles

We offer a versatile range of GRP pultruded profiles, which meet or exceed the required standards of BS EN13706.

Fibreglass structural profiles offer a wealth of construction opportunities for many UK industries. The process of GRP pultrusion provides a product which is very strong, lightweight, highly durable and has a smooth finished surface which is impervious to most environmental conditions. An overall cost-efficient solution, it is a great solution to a wide range of design requirements.

GRP profiles are light in weight yet high in strength – in fact, as strong as steel but with only one quarter of the density. They are very durable and do not corrode, even in tough environments. Plus, they offer a virtually maintenance-free long service life, making them excellent value for money. 

Suitable for a broad range of applications, pultruded GRP makes an ideal and cost-efficient replacement for traditionally used materials like concrete, steel, aluminium and wood.  A very low electrical conductivity also makes it a great choice for use around electrical installations. 

What is the GRP Pultrusion Process? 

pultruded profiles infographic

Composite pultrusion is a continuous process used in the production of GRP profiles with constant cross-sections and material properties. Now in use for more than 50 years, the technology ensures a consistent high-quality material with every production run.  

Densely packed continuous fibreglass rovings and matting are pulled by process machinery through a bath of liquid resin. A catalyst is added initiating a polymerisation reaction passing through a high temperature, high-pressure mould. This forms and cures the finished section shape. Finally, the sections are automatically cut to the desired length.   

Stock sections are offered in the most used structural shapes. However, custom made GRP profiles can be requested for bespoke shapes and sizes. Our expert team always welcome enquiries for new moulds and profiles. If you are considering producing a new product in large quantities and need a trusted and competitively priced supplier, please get in touch.   

Suitable for most all industrial and commercial environments, pultruded profiles are typically used to make structures for safe user access or for load bearing supports. These may include stairways, walkways and platforms or for electrical services support.   

Typical installation scenarios include: 

    • Access platform walkways
    • Pedestrian bridges, steps and walkways
    • Worker access to machinery
    • Manufacturing plants
    • Power generation applications
    • Water treatment works
    • Offshore wind and oil facilities
    • Railway trackside or service facility applications
Pultruded GRP sections
    • Long lasting and durable 
    • Load performance data of profiles is available, allowing for the design of safe structures 
    • Little or no maintenance required

We offer a complete fabrication, delivery and installation service for most types of access and support structures. This is underpinned with additional services for engineering drawings and calculations. 

Bespoke profiles: In collaboration with our manufacturing partner, we can supply custom moulds and profiles on request.  

Site surveys: We offer advice, insight and free quotations through in-person site surveys or via supplied drawings/media. 

Design drawing and 3D rendering: We can help you visualise your concepts through 3D rendered CAD models. 

Engineering and standards verification: Amongst others, we have worked with Sheffield Hallam University Centre for Infrastructure Management and Exova (Element Group) to provide independently verified conformance to BS and EN tests. 

In-house fabrication & assembly: Our in-house fabrication facilities allows us to build bespoke structures. 

Waterjet cutting:  We offer a waterjet cutting service when extreme precision is required. 

Installations team: Our fully trained team can install our products throughout the UK.
