GRP Manufacturers & Fibreglass Suppliers

Welcome to HR Fibreglass, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of GRP gratings, platforms, drainage covers and GRP flooring. Commonly referred to as GRP or FRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic or Fibre Reinforced Plastic), we have developed advanced techniques in the use of composite materials that allow us to produce sophisticated mouldings suitable for a wide variety of applications.

GRP gratings are approximately half the weight of steel and so will not require the same superstructure to support them, saving time, materials and cost – without compromising on load-bearing capabilities.

GRP flooring is becoming increasingly used in food, water and waste industries due in part to cost, but also in the fact that GRP flooring can be used as an anti-slip surface for walkways, production areas and stairwells too. Boasting incredible bi-directional strength and an impressive resistance to both chemical and corrosive environments, our continued development of composite materials has seen a rapid take-up by many of our customers.

With the addition of carbon and silicon grit to the top surface of our glass reinforced plastic, our GRP flooring and GRP gratings take on an extremely hard-wearing anti-slip surface that’s suitable for a wide range of locations – from public areas susceptible to water, like golf courses or swimming pools, to industrial applications such as dairies or food processing plants.

With no maintenance necessary, glass reinforced plastic products like our GRP flooring and GRP gratings, manhole covers and hand lay-up projects, are ideally suited to even the harshest working environments.

Visit our ‘Contact’ page today and we’ll be happy to outline the benefits of glass reinforced plastic for your organization.

What is GRP?

GRP stands for glass reinforced plastic. It is a composite material made from plastic which has been reinforced using fine glass fibres (which is why you’ll also hear it referred to as fibreglass).

This unique construction results in a material that offers endless valuable qualities for engineering, construction, and maintenance, including a high strength to weight ratio and unrivalled durability.

Why use GRP products?

Items made from fibreglass or GRP (Glass Reinforce Plastic) as it’s also known, offer countless efficiencies and cost savings. Just some the key advantages of this material include:

  • Strength
  • Light weight
  • Low maintenance
  • Highly durable
  • Slip-resistant
  • Non-corrosive
  • Non-conductive
  • Versatile

    GRP Pultruded Profiles

    The term pultrusion combines the words, “pull” and “extrusion”. Extrusion is the pushing of material through a shaped die. Where as pultrusion, is the pulling of material, such as fibreglass and resin, through a shaped die.The pultrusion process starts with racks or creels holding rolls of fibre mat or doffs of fibre roving. This raw fibre is pulled off the racks and guided through a resin bath or resin impregnation system.

    GRP Moulded Gratings

    GRP molded gratings are manufactured in an open, heated mold system. Continuous E-glass roving’s are placed in the mold in alternating layers and completely wetted out with resin. This continuous process produces an integral, one piece construction which provides excellent corrosion resistance as well as bi-directional strength.
