GRP Palisade Fencing

The non-conductive, lightweight properties of GRP fencing make it a highly effective alternative to traditional steel fencing, whilst still maintaining the strength. It is highly beneficial in areas such as railways, electrical substations, electrical enclosures and chemical sites.

GRP Palisade Fencing - GRP Pales independently tested & comply with the requirements of BS 1722-12:2016 for General Purpose Fences & comply with BS EN 13706, either E17 or E23 Fence Panels are supplied in Kit form to be assembled. This saves on high carriage costs. All the fence profiles are pre-drilled for easy assembly, removing the need for jigs and enabling assembly on site.

Fence Posts are supplied pre-drilled with the required cleats. Embedded Posts include GRP Rebar which is embedded into the concrete to act as a key. Surface mounted posts can be supplied with a metal foot and end cap.
