Many industrial and commercial industries such as the electricity sector or the gas sector, any industry where sensitive and valuable equipment is outside and needs protection from the weather and people damage. The protection needs to be durable and very safe for its job. Glass Reinforced Plastic is a well tested material. It is used by a whole load of utility companies for housing pipes, wires tubes and anything else you can think of that would need protecting.
Glass Reinforced Plastic is made up of a total of plastic reinforced by fine glass fibres. You may well know it as fibreglass. It is a very strong material that can withstand tension and compression but you will find is extremely lightweight. Because of what it is made out of it is weather proof to all extremity’s so that makes it ideal to be used outdoors.
This Glass Reinforced Plastic is very mouldable so it can be made into a variety of structures including GRP cabinets, GRP Enclosures, and covers. Specific applications include companies that are in the industry of gas, water and electricity. Any industry that needs any equipment or pipes or anything protecting will turn to Glass Reinforced Plastic to use.
There are other examples of where Glass Reinforced Plastic is used to cover and conceal special equipment and electrical equipment. It is also used in the travel industry in the railway sector too. This material is a widely used material across the world. From Theme parks through to homes and things in the home. It is everywhere.
GRP is a very adaptable material and can be moulded into any shape or pattern you need it to be. So it can be made to fit around anything it needs to be.

It is great to use outdoors because, it doesn’t scratch, it isn’t affected by UV lights either. Glass Reinforced Plastic will go on for years because it is classed as a long-term industrial so expect it to last around 30 years.
