GRP profile section types
polyester-glass profiles made by pultrusion
Polyester resin section types are perfectly suited to an interior, exterior and aggressive environments where industrial chemicals or acid/salt air may quickly corrode metal systems.
Commonly incorporated into new build & refurbishment designs alike, their service life can reach over 40 years.
All profiles are manufactured in a pultrusion process from fibreglass and thermosetting isophthalic polyester resins and coated with an outer layer.
Profile sections are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed EN 13706 E23 or E17 quality
All profiles are available in standard lengths of 6m with other cut lengths, resins or colours available (subject to minimum order quantities).
Available in standard steel grey colour (or high visibility safety yellow to order), GRP pultrusion profile sections provide all the advantages of lightweight, high strength and durability, coupled with a corrosion resistant, non-conductive, fire retardant and virtually maintenance free life.
The all solid colour construction and optional polyurethane protective coating create a durable and professional looking product, competitively priced compared to stainless steel or galvanised steel equivalents.
The relatively low weight of the product makes transportation, handling and assembly much easier than for metal products. The profiles can be cut to size and partially assembled before dispatch, making them suitable for immediate installation. They can also be cut to size on site using carbide tipped tools and resealed with resin.
The resultant structures provide for worker safety in a wide variety of applications in industrial and commercial environments e.g. water treatment works, marine & railway applications, manufacturing facilities, walkways etc.
