GRP Rods and Tubes

Fibreglass GRP tubes are stocked in a number of diameters and wall thickness. They are all made by the pultrusion process so have high glass contents and excellent mechanical properties. All of the tubes have a corrosion/weathering barrier built into the surface to give the maximum long-term performance in the most demanding environments.
