GRP sections are perfectly suited to constructions in an interior, exterior or harsh environment. Whilst industrial chemicals may quickly corrode alternative structures made of materials such as metal, GRP sections can be designed to resist such conditions.
Commonly incorporated into new build and refurbishment designs alike, they have proven track record of in-service performance for more than 50 years.
Typical requirements for pultruded sections include GRP structural beams, GRP angles or GRP box sections. A list of our range of structural profiles is provided above but we do offer more bespoke types, including different resin or reinforcement types. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss a special project in more detail.
All of our stocked GRP sections are produced by the process of pultrusion. This combines glass fibre reinforcements and thermosetting isophthalic polyester resins with an applied surface veil.
Depending upon thickness, each of our pultruded sections are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed the relevant EN 13706 E23 or E17 standards.
All profiles are available in standard lengths of 6m with other lengths, resins or colours available (subject to minimum order quantities). You can order your GRP structural sections in standard steel grey colour (or high visibility safety yellow to order). GRP pultrusions provide all the advantages of lightweight, high strength and durability. Plus, they offer a corrosion resistant, non-conductive, fire retardant and virtually maintenance free life.
The resultant structures can provide enhanced safety access for workers or load bearing supports with greatly reduced overall weight. They are used in a wide variety of exposed locations in all industrial and commercial environments. Common settings for our GRP sections include water treatment works, marine and railway access walkways and in manufacturing facilities.
