Fiberline's FRP U-profiles are a cost-effective alternative to timber, concrete, steel or aluminium. They are corrosion-free and do not deteriorate, which gives them a long life and saves you maintenance costs in the long term.
Our u-profiles are made from fibreglass, or GRP, which is a plastic based composite consisting of dry glass fibres and polyester. The unique properties of this material make our u-profile a cost-effective alternative to wood, concrete, steel or aluminium u profiles.
Do you have problems with corrosion? Our fibreglass u-profiles are corrosion-free and do not rot nor deteriorate even in harsh environments and water, which is often the case with wood, steel and aluminium u profiles. With GRP you get a durable u profile with a long life time and low maintenance needs.
Are you facing weight restrictions or just want lightweight u profiles that are easier to handle, then fibreglass might be the solution. Our fibreglass u-profiles are as strong as steel but only have a quarter of the density - and for aluminium it is only two-thirds. This ensure you savings on the weight of the final solution.
Other advantages include:
In our online webshop you can find all our products including all types of u profiles with different lengths, thickness and price. Find price, stock status, delivery options - and order 24/7 when it suits you. Interested in more? See our wide variety of GRP structural profiles here.
You can also order one of our sample boxes to test the quality of our fibreglass u profile, compare to aluminium u profiles or for a prototype. Our product sample box contains:

The high stiffness and strength of the U-profile make it suitable for applications such as beam elements where long spans coupled with high loads are needed. U-profile applications also include girders in beam bridges, walkways, platforms in cooling towers and stringers for stairs.
With the unique material properties of our fibreglass u profiles the majority of our customers find wide use of the u profiles in areas such as construction, offshore, chemical & wastewater industry, swimming pools, marine & coast, as well as rail industry.

Many of our customers find great pleasure in the easy machining our fibreglass u profiles provide them. It is just as easy to machine GRP as wood! The final adjustments can be made onsite as you can cut to length, drill or even use self-tapping screws. Learn how to cut, drill and use screws in these videos

Drilling into the profiles is relatively straightforward. An ordinary metal drill bit should be used to drill individual holes or small numbers of holes. The use of a special drill bit is recommended for larger numbers of holes. This will ensure that the hole rims are clean and free from burring. A spoon bit and centre bit can be used to drill large holes. You can find lots of advice about drilling here.

You can use a countersink drill to achieve a smoother finish. We recommend deburring in order to close the cutting surfaces. A spoon bit and centre bit can be used to drill large holes. Read our design manual to find out about the optimal gap between the holes.
