A Guide To GRP Handrail & Fencing
A guide to GRP handrail & fencing
Whether you realise it or not, glass reinforced plastic handrail and fencing is everywhere. You’ll find this revolutionary material at every kind of setting, from Network Rail sites to power stations and manufacturing plants. In fact, the more demanding the environment, the better GRP handrail and fencing performs.
There are good reasons why so many different industries are choosing GRP handrail and fencing over traditional steel. Economical, easy to install, safer and better-suited to extreme conditions, GRP handrailing and fencing is often the smarter choice – and ordering it from Ezi Klamp couldn’t be easier.
Glass reinforced plastic – the revolutionary alternative to steel
At a glance, you won’t be able to tell it apart from steel, but GRP handrail and fencing is made of a next-generation material. The construction starts with densely packed continuous fibreglass, wrapped in a layer of fibreglass mat. The benefits speak for themselves. GRP handrail and fencing is light, tough, easy to assemble and unlikely to be stolen thanks to the low resale value. It’s easy to produce, too, meaning every fixture and fitting is readily available and your GRP handrailing or fencing can be made-to-measure.
GRP handrail and fencing can be used everywhere. But this groundbreaking material has the edge over steel in more demanding work environments, where there’s the risk of exposure to heat, fire, chemicals, electricity and more. Unlike steel, GRP handrail and fencing is non-magnetic, non-sparking and non-conductive. It’s unaffected by electromagnetic fields and won’t interfere with radio communications. It’s also fire-retardant, impact, weatherproof and immune to chemical corrosion. All of which explains why you’ll see GRP handrail and fencing everywhere from offshore wind facilities to marine vessels and defence sites.
