GRP Ladders & Steps are an ideal alternative to steel. GRP Ladders is lightweight, non conductive, radar transparent, electromagnetically transparent and non corrosive.

Fibreglass Multi-Purpose Ladders & Steps
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) ladders and steps are made from a composite material consisting of reinforced glass fibres in a plastic resin. Fibreglass ladders are commonly used in industrial settings and are preferred for their durability and resistance to corrosion, chemicals, and fire. The GRP ladders and steps that we supply have several advantages over traditional ladders and steps made of other materials like wood, aluminium, or steel. For example, they are lightweight, making them easy to move and position. They are also non-conductive, meaning they do not conduct electricity, so they are safe to use around electrical equipment or in areas with electrical hazards. GRP ladders and steps are resistant to UV rays, making them ideal for use outdoors. They are also resistant to moisture and can be used in wet or humid environments without the risk of rust or corrosion.   Range of Sizes & Lengths Our GRP Ladders and Steps can be made in a range of sizes.

GRP Step Ladders Technical Specs
Our GRP ladders and steps come in various configurations, including single and double-sided step ladders, platform steps. They can also be customized to meet specific requirements and can be designed to be collapsible or telescopic for easy storage and safety. Our GRP ladders and steps are a safe and practical option for many industrial applications. They are durable, lightweight, and resistant to various hazards, making them an excellent investment for any workplace. Our structural profiles with a thickness of over 5mm meet the higher performance E23 grade, while those at 3-5mm thick meet the E17 grade. The non-conductive, lightweight properties of GRP ladders make it a highly effective alternative to traditional steel ladders, whilst still maintaining strength. It is highly beneficial in areas such as railways, electrical substations, electrical enclosures, and chemical sites.   BS EN Standard All our GRP products adhere to BS EN quality standards
