Suitable for industrial and commercial environments, Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) gates, fences and grilles provide a safe, maintenance-free and cost-effective alternative to metal or wooden structures.
The comprehensive range of GRP profiles are perfectly suited to fabricate products for interior, exterior and aggressive environments where industrial chemicals or acid/salt air may quickly degrade other structures. Composite structures have displayed proven in-service performance for 40+ years.
A composite gate or fence construction may comprise the following elements:
- Structural frame or suspension sections
- Cross Bracing
- Open mesh in-fill panels or grille inserts
- Galvanised or stainless steel gate furniture
- Composite self-closing gate hinges
- Composite/steel lockable latch mechanism
- Wall/floor fixings/fasteners/supports
Structural components are available in steel grey or high visibility safety yellow, with green, black & other colours to order. They provide all the advantages of lightweight, high strength and durability, coupled with corrosion resistant, non-conductive, fire retardant and maintenance free life.
Through-colour construction and an optional extra-durable polyurethane surface coating for exterior installations will provide an enduring, smart appearance that is highly cost-effective when compared to stainless or galvanised steel/iron.
Gates & fences provide worker, public safety and security in a wide variety of locations e.g. manufacturing, power generation, water treatment works, petrochemical facilities, marinas, railways, around machinery etc.
The relatively light weight of the product makes transport, handling & installation far easier than metallic products. Structures may be fully or partially assembled prior to delivery for immediate installation, or fabricated in-situ using tungsten carbide tipped tooling and resealed using an approved resin top coat.
