We specialise in efficient GRP structures for safe access, including fabrication and installation.
Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) pultruded sections are light in weight, very strong, maintenance free and suitable for a broad range of applications. They make an ideal replacement for traditionally used materials like concrete, steel, aluminium and wood.
A smooth finished surface provides a long life with the material offering a cost efficient and sustainable solution to many design requirements.
Pultrusion is a continuous process used in the production of composite profiles with constant cross sections and material properties.
Now in use for more than 50 years, the technology ensures consistently high quality is reproduced in every production run. Densely packed continuous fibreglass rovings and matting are pulled by process machinery through a bath of resin and then on through a high temperature and high pressure mould which forms and cures the finished section shape. Finally the sections are automatically cut to the desired length.
The type and shape of the finished product is determined by the design of the mould.
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 & profiles to be made.
We are able to offer a complete fabrication and delivery/installation service for most types of access structures; underpinned by engineering drawings & data when required.
Suitable for all industrial and commercial environments, GRP pultrusions are typically used to construct safe access structures such as stairways, walkways & platforms. All systems are designed to comply with relevant standards e.g. Eurocomp Design Code & BS 4592, providing versatile and cost effective solutions.
