10 advantages of fibreglass
Fibreglass profiles are a cost-effective alternative to traditional materials such as concrete, steel, aluminium and timber. Whereas these materials have only one primary strength, GRP combines a number of advantages. This makes fibreglass ideal for the sustainable construction of the future. We have listed the key advantages on this page to give you a simple overview of all the many opportunities that fibreglass products can offer.
1. Low weight
Fiberline's GRP profiles are low in weight. This makes them easier to work with and means that great weight savings can be achieved on the finished structure.

2. Great strength
Fiberline Building Profiles give you the same great strength as steel, but at only a quarter of the density. It is also possible to make weight savings in comparison with aluminium, as the density is 30 % lower.

6. Easy to work with
GRP profiles are just as easy and fast to work with as timber. This means that solutions which incorporate our profiles can be installed easily on site or adjusted to fit existing components, such as piping systems, etc.

Fiberline's fibreglass profiles are produced using an energy-optimised process that takes the environment into consideration. In addition, the material's excellent durability means that very few maintenance resources are required. The materials can be re-used when they are no longer needed, for instance in cement production.
