GRP angles are a versatile and essential component in various construction and industrial applications. Made from a composite material consisting of a polyester resin matrix reinforced with glass fibres, GRP angles offer a unique combination of strength, durability, and corrosion resistance.

These profiles are especially suited for environments where traditional materials like steel or aluminium may succumb to corrosion or where weight reduction is crucial. Lightweight yet exceptionally robust, GRP angles are an ideal choice for structural supports, frame building, and numerous other projects requiring precision and longevity.

What is GRP Angle

GRP angle is a type of structural profile formed from Glass Reinforced Plastic, commonly referred to as fibreglass. This material combines a polyester resin with glass fibres, which are layered and then thermosetted in a pultrusion process to form a rigid, continuous profile. Pultruded GRP angles are crafted to achieve uniformity and consistent mechanical properties across the axis, making them exceptionally strong and durable.

These angles are available in various dimensions and can be customised with different resins and fibre types depending on the specific requirements of the application. Glass reinforced plastic angle profiles are non-conductive and thermally insulating, adding an extra layer of utility in environments where electrical safety and thermal stability are concerns.

Their resistance to corrosion and minimal maintenance needs make them a preferred alternative to traditional materials like steel or aluminium, especially in harsh or chemically aggressive environments.

GRP angle profiles offer a range of benefits that make them an advantageous choice for many construction and engineering projects. Here are some of the key advantages:
  • Durability: Are highly resistant to corrosion, which allows them to withstand harsh environmental conditions including exposure to chemicals and moisture. This makes them suitable for outdoor and industrial applications where other materials may degrade.
  • Lightweight: The intrinsic nature of GRP makes these angles easy to transport and install, which can significantly reduce overall project costs. Despite their lightness, they provide strong structural support, comparable to traditional materials.
  • Maintenance-Free: Once installed, angles require little to no maintenance due to their robustness and resistance to environmental impacts. This reduces long-term costs and effort associated with upkeep.
  • Non-Conductive and Thermal Insulation: GRP is naturally non-conductive, making it safe for use in electrical applications. Additionally, it provides thermal insulation, contributing to energy efficiency in structures.
  • Versatility: Available in a variety of sizes and specifications, angles can be used in a wide range of applications, from simple supports to complex truss structures. Their adaptability is enhanced by the fact that they can be custom fabricated to meet specific project requirements.
  • Cost-Effective: With the long lifespan and minimal maintenance requirements, combined with ease of installation, angle profiles are a cost-effective solution for many structural needs.
These properties make GRP angle profiles an ideal alternative to traditional materials like steel and aluminium, especially in applications where durability and resistance to environmental factors are critical.
