Benefits Of GRP Fencing

When it comes to types of fencing for your commercial or industrial premises, there are many different options to consider. However, one of the most popular options to consider in today’s market is GRP Fencing. There are two main options to consider with GRP Fencing which include GRP Mesh and GRP Palisade Fencing. There are many reasons why GRP Fencing is now being used across the UK for multiple applications and sectors which we’ll be covering in this article.


Ideal For Public Safety

GRP Fencing is widely used across railways to create perimeters and improve public safety. GRP Palisade Fencing is widely used throughout the UK for public safety as GRP Fencing is anti-climb and deters potential vandals or criminals from entering your premises, whether that’s during or out of business hours. On the other hand, GRP Mesh Fencing can be used for screening electrical applications and stations for the safety of the general public.

Used Across Multiple Sectors

GRP Fencing can be supplied and installed for several applications and sectors. Palisade and Mesh fencing can be installed at gas enclosures, chemical enclosures, electrical enclosures, industrial sites, and commercial sites. Fencing can also be installed within railway car parks and pedestrian walkways. Fencing can be delivered as made-to-measure after a survey has been conducted on-site to ensure specifications are precise.

Long-Lasting & Highly-Durable

Another key benefit of GRP Fencing is the long-lasting nature and durability, especially when compared to alternative types of fencing and materials. Due to the excellent nature and structure of GRP, minimal maintenance will be required and replacements will be highly unlikely. Therefore, you can be sure of healthy long-term savings compared to more traditional types of materials such as steel and aluminium.

Non-Conductive & Lightweight

GRP Fencing (both palisade and mesh) are made from non-conductive materials and are therefore a fantastic option for electrical substations and other sectors such as rail networks and more. Because this type of fencing is made from non-conductive materials, this means that there is no risk that the fencing will spark as a result of electromagnetic fields. Furthermore, you can also expect high-impact resistance from GRP Fencing which is why it’s so popular in areas where there may be potential danger or collisions.


GRP – as a material in itself – is known to be highly cost-effective especially when compared to alternatives such as steel or aluminium. Although it may be slightly more expensive initially for purchase and installation, you are more than likely to regain improved savings in the long-term for a number of reasons. GRP provides longevity and requires minimal maintenance. Therefore, on-going expenses to maintain GRP fencing are virtually non-existent as it tends to look after itself.


In line with Net Zero 2050 targets, GRP is going to play an integral part in achieving that. The composite material is known to be 50% lighter than alternative fencing materials and is therefore much easier to work with in terms of the fencing being easier to install and also to transport from one destination to another.
