About

The non-conductive, lightweight properties of GRP palisade fencing make it a highly effective alternative to traditional steel fencing, whilst still maintaining the strength.

It is highly beneficial in areas such as railways, electrical enclosures and chemical sites.

We have specific GRP profiles available to make these fences, these include our new Top Hat profile, Box Section, Angle, I Beam and our U Channel. These are available in Grey, with some stock available in Green.

  • GRP boundary fencing
  • GRP trackside fencing
  • GRP electrical enclosures
  • GRP chemical enclosures
  • GRP gas enclosures

BSEN13706 Specification for Pultruded Profiles defines two grades of structural profiles. Our structural profiles with a wall thickness of over 5mm meet the higher performance E23 grade, while those at 3-5mm thick meet the E17 grade. Please view our Technical Data Table below for further specifications.
