GRP Kiosks with Electrical Fittings
Beady eyed users of our website will soon see that we now offer our Standard Walk In GRP Enclosures (VR13 through to VR16) with a standard Electrical Kit Out as an alternative option. We have uploaded Drawings showing our VR13E, VR14E, VR15E and VR16E, these are our traditional Standard sized GRP Kiosks with the Basic Electrical Installation included. The Drawings show details and locations of the Electrical Fittings we now offer as a package in our very popular Standard Range.
The Standard Electrical Kit out in our GRP Enclosures has stemmed from our Customers previous requirements, we’ve collated and studied past orders and come up with a package we consider to be both popular and extremely good value. A typical Electrical Kit Out in our Standard Walk in Enclosures will include a 6 Way Distribution Board, a Twin Socket with RCD Protection, a 1600mm Fluorescent Light Fitting c/w Switch and a 2ft Tubular Frost Heater with Protective Guard and Thermostat to keep your equipment safe and functional during frosty weather. All wiring will be housed in impact resistant PVC Conduit and will be Tested & Certified to NAPIT (National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers) Standards prior to dispatch. The charge for the Standard Electrical Kit Out is £465.00 & vat. We consider this to be excellent value along with the added convenience of having your GRP Kiosk delivered with everything you need pre-installed. Please remember that this offer applies to our Standard Range Enclosures which are Delivered in Ready Built Form. Additional Electrical fittings, along with Hinged/Lockable Cable Entry Points (Commonly known as Cat Flaps!) are available on request.
So, to summarise, if you need a Standard Walk in Enclosure without Electrics it’s our VR13, VR14, VR15 or VR16, if you prefer either of these complete with the Standard Electrical Kit Out just ad an “E” at the end of the part number. Take a look at our Technical Specifications page for all models.

Insulated GRP Enclosures
A bespoke Adept Insulated GRP Enclosure would normally be constructed using a 12mm or 18mm Ply Core within a sandwich construction. A typical 12mm Ply Core Construction would provide a U Value of 2.2 W/sq.m/degC, whereas an 18mm Ply Core would provide a U Value of 1.5 W/sq.m/degC. The introduction of a 50mm Foam Slab Insulation along with the 18mm Ply Core mentioned above would provide a U Value of .45 W/sq.m/degC.

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) has numerous benefits that are hugely beneficial in the manufacture of GRP Enclosures.
The primary benefits would be its Lifespan, GRP Enclosures remain operational for well over 25 years, they don’t need any painting or staining, a little light lubricating Oil on the hinges and lock will ensure trouble free service for years to come.
Another such advantage would be the flexibility in Design
GRP Panels can be produced in specified sizes. We often encounter instances whereas a GRP Enclosure is required at roof top level, the Service Lift is very often too small so we resolve the issue by Manufacturing the Wall/Roof Panels to suit the service lift. We then offer a Service whereas an Adept GRP Site Crew will attend Site and erect the Enclosure in the requested location.
Adept GRP Enclosures (also referred to as GRP Kiosks) are Non Conductive and are finished internally with a Fire Retardant Resin.
They are manufactured with the end use in mind, the position of the Doors and any other features dictated by the Customer prior to the commencement of manufacture. Further details are available at https://adeptgrp.co.uk/grp-enclosures/bespoke-grp-enclosures/
We also produce a range of GRP Electrical Enclosures, these come in set sizes but with 16 options on size you’re almost sure to find something close to what you want.

What is an Adept GRP Enclosure.
A GRP Enclosure or GRP Kiosk is a man made product which can be designed and manufactured using Composite Materials, the benefits of using GRP are numerous, it’s durability and longevity are well documented and allows for a low maintenance product which will provide uninterrupted service for decades.
Common uses for GRP Enclosures
GRP Enclosures are commonly used to house Electrical Equipment, this may be sensitive Switchgear, an Industrial Transformer or similar, the fact that the GRP Enclosure can be designed to suit site specific needs and then delivered in one piece so it’s ready for use instantly makes it a very viable option. Such conditions minimise downtime on site and allow for the smooth transition needed to get situations up and running quickly.

These are manufactured in house by Adept GRP Ltd and sold in great numbers to the likes of Edmundson Electrical, Newey & Eyre etc. Adept GRP Cabinets are also supplied direct to Electrical Contractors who see them as the ideal solution to protect Electrical Components from the weather.

Industrial GRP Enclosure manufacturer Adept GRP has recently been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in Health and Safety.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme, which recognises very high standards in Health and Safety management amongst UK contractors.
Adept GRP is principally involved in the Manufacture of GRP Electrical Enclosures and GRP Kiosks most recent Clients have included major players such as DNO Western Power Distribution and Proctor & Gamble amongst others.
Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.
John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Adept GRP Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.
Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines Health and Safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
