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. If you’d like to browse our Standard Range of GRP Cabinets you can find Drawings and prices at https://adeptgrp.co.uk/technical-specification/
Adept GRP Ltd have recently taken on additional premises with a view to increasing production levels of our ever popular GRP Electrical Cabinets. The Outdoor Weatherproof Cabinets are part of our Standard GRP Enclosure Range, are in continual high demand.
The VR Roadside Range offer Small, Medium and Large walk in GRP Enclosures, all Adept GRP products come with an expected lifespan in excess of 25 years making our GRP Enclosures a very cost effective option when lifespan is considered against initial outlay.
We also produce tailor made, Bespoke GRP Enclosures for situations where a standard GRP Kiosk doesn’t quite meet requirements. Bespoke Enclosures can be small or large, we are normally provided with a brief on what’s required which we then, given our extensive experience, use to produce an Autocad Drawing which we provide for approval prior to commencing manufacture. Delivery of the smaller GRP Cabinets are normally by National Carrier whilst the Larger GRP Housings are delivered on a dedicated vehicle and offloaded/positioned by Hiab.
In addition to being Audited by an external Consultancy Company on a monthly basis, Adept GRP is also Audited on an Annual basis by SGS with a view to meeting IS0 9001:2008 Standards, a standard we gained and have continually met for a number of years.
If you’re looking for assistance with an upcoming Project which requires an Industrial GRP Product we are the people to speak to, we offer a very personalised service supported by extensive experience within the GRP Industry. Just visit adeptgrp.co.uk or call 01269 843355 and we’ll guide you through the entire process.
Many of our large industries such as Petro Chemical and the construction industry, which is vast and world wide; need specialist cabinets and enclosures which are usually requested to be manufactured using GRP.
Water, Telecom and electrical are three of our utility suppliers and these industries also require GRP cabinets and enclosures. Because GRP cabinets are manufactured at a very cost effective rate they are sold to the industries at a very low cost compared to using the traditional metals.
Also GRP cabinets are used because there is very low maintenance involved and the GRP material is extremely durable. So the low cost, durability and low maintenance makes GRP cabinets the perfect solution.
Apart from all the qualities mentioned above GRP is very light in weight and is an extremely strong and robust material. All of these qualities make GRP cabinets more favourable with most industries rather than the metal ones that were traditionally used for years.
All GRP cabinets can be ordered with extras according to the customer’s specification. Although many GRP cabinet stockists store quite a large and varied range as well as the ones with standard features.
GRP cabinets designed and manufactured by www.adeptgrp.co.uk usually have in stock the standard roadside range which is a very popular cabinet and widely used in the communication and petro chemical industries. Also firm favorites for the cabinets and housings are the water and electrical services.
The Adept Group has many years experience in the design of GRP cabinets which allows for many optional extras that are necessary for the working life of these cabinets.
The high-tech material of glass reinforced plastic is the perfect solution for cabinets that need to be in harsh operating environments. GRP cabinets are light in weight, corrosion resistance and superbly strong.
GRP cabinets are protective sheltering for many challenging environments and have been used for decades by the oil, gas and chemical processing plants all over the world. GRP cabinets can be built in almost any size and strength to satisfy the customers requirements.
GRP cabinets can be configured and built to the customers specification or if necessary the company could provide a complete turnkey solution. In these instances the field equipment will be installed and ready for the connection.
Most companies that provide GRP cabinets have the experience of the common industrial operating environment. Also the extensive knowledge of many special specifications such as frangibility requirements.
GRP cabinets can be free-standing and wall mounted depending on the customers requirements. Many GRP cabinets are manufactured for cable entry from the bottom or the rear of the cabinet, then the wall mounted versions are ideal for easy cable and equipment installation and adjustability. There are many variations for this GRP cabinet including floor materials and construction, lipped edges are a recommended variation for leak resistance.
GRP cabinets are also manufactured with flame-retardant properties if the customer requires this. Some of the superior GRP products are constructed with thermal insulation properties and a high structural strength and durability, these are commonly requested by factories for walls and even roof tops.
The versatility of GRP is beyond question, its use is infinite, it can be manufactured in a lightweight or heavy weight form dependant on its intended purpose in a particular project.
The introduction of GRP in the manufacture of GRP Enclosures and GRP Cabinets has provided both versatility and longevity to the Purchaser, the customer can dictate the size, orientation, colour and engineering requirements of the Enclosure confident that it can be produced to their exact and specific requirements. Doors, be them General Access or Emergency Exits, can be positioned in any wall, ventilation can be forced (by means of Extraction Fans and Inlet vents) or Natural Cross Flow (by means of a series of Vents positioned at both High and Low level). Electrical items, such as Lighting, Heating, Sockets etc can be fitted, Wired, Tested and Certified prior to dispatch, thus eliminating the need for an additional service, and potential delays associated with such activities being undertaken by a Contractor on Site.
A typical GRP Enclosure Construction would weigh in the region of 20kg per M2 and would be as follows; Gel Coat/GRP/12mm Ply Core/50mm Encapsulated Vertical Battens/GRP. An increase in height may see the Core Material increase to 18mm and the Encapsulated Vertical Battens to 75mm in Depth. The typical external finish would be Semi Gloss which is available from any colour from the BS or RAL Range, alternative finishes include Simulated Brick (ideal when used to match up to an existing traditional Brick structure on Site), Simulated Wood Effect and a Textured Finish. The Textured finish is seen as a budget option, it does not require the availability of Semi Gloss moulds and is normally only manufactured as a standard finish by companies with limited facilities/expertise.
