What are the benefits of using GRP fences? And where are they mostly used?


Non- Conductive

GRP Fencing is non-conductive and radio transparent. Therefore, they are an ideal material choice the following areas:

  • Railways
  • Electrical Sites
  • Power Utilities

GRP is also non-magnetic and radio transparent.

Corrosion Resistance

You won’t have to worry about the upkeep needed for the fences because of rust or corrosion, GRP Fences are corrosion-resistant and durable in harsh weather conditions, meaning they can outlast other materials in areas such as:

  • Chemical Sites
  • Gas Sites
  • Sea edges- where sea salt corrosion can be a problem

This also makes them look more appealing over a longer timeframe, as their appearance does not diminish due to harsh conditions as much as some metals.

Lightweight

Although lightweight, it maintains its high strength. This makes GRP much easier and cheaper to transport than other materials, and enables easy installation.
