Pultruded Sections

We offer a versatile range of GRP pultruded structural sections to standard EN13706 E17 or E23, offering a wealth of construction opportunities.

Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) pultruded sections are light in weight, maintenance free and suitable for a broad range of applications, making an ideal and cost efficient replacement for traditionally used materials like concrete, steel, aluminium and wood.

Now in use for more than 50 years, this technology ensures high quality in every production run.

Stock sections are offered in most commonly used structural shapes and through carefully selected, quality assured manufacturing sources, access to a wider range of shapes and sizes is available.  We also welcome enquiries for new moulds and profiles to be made.

We are able to offer a complete fabrication, delivery and installation service for most types of access structures, underpinned by required engineering drawings & data.

Typical profiles include angle, box, c-section, flat, i-beam, wide flange beam, round tube, plank, hand rail, ladder rung.

Suitable for all industrial and commercial environments, GRP pultrusions are typically used to construct safe access structures such as stairways, walkways and platforms.  All systems are designed to comply with relevant standards such as Eurocomp Design Code & BS 4592.
