Use fiberglass profiles for clever construction
Our fiberglass profiles combine several unique benefits that are not found in other, traditional materials:
- Low weight
- Great strength
- Corrosion free
- Chemical resistance
- Minimal maintenance
- Electrical insulation
- Easy to work with
- Non-organic and sustainable building material
- Thermally insulating
- CE marked GRP profiles
All these advantages combined into a single GRP material gives you a cost-effective alternative to concrete, steel, timber and aluminium. Here you can find an overview of the 10 most important advantages.
The lightness, strength and durability of glass fiber reinforced polymers (GFRP) allow you to create intelligent end solutions. Our fiberglass profiles will give you the same great strength as steel, but at only a quarter of the density. This allows great weight savings with the GFRP components which creates a lighter design, resulting in a lower total weight for the finished solution.
As a general rule, this will result in savings on the installation costs in terms of special machinery, personnel and assembly time, which can affect other operations.
Why you should consider glass fiber
GRP profiles from Fiberline are corrosion-free and make for a cost-effective alternative to concrete, timber, steel or aluminium. This means that the profiles have a long functional life which makes it possible to avoid the need for costly replacements due to rust or deterioration.
With our fiberglass composite profiles you get no or only minimal maintenance. This results in lower costs over the lifetime of the product. Fiberline’s composite beams and profiles are extremely durable, even in harsh weather conditions and when exposed to corrosive conditions. Usually, they do not require any additional coating following production. Visit our FAQ-site for more information.
Should you choose FRP or GRP-profiles?
FRP (Fiber reinforced polymers) and GRP (Glass fiber reinforced polymers) are often used as synonyms referring to the same composite material. At Fiberline, our GRP-profiles are produced with material properties tailored to specific purposes.
Comparing both FRP-profiles and GRP-profiles with steel and wood show some interesting possibilities for your next sustainable construction whether it is for building, industry or offshore. See the product comparison here.
The large number of standard geometries that we offer you, such as U-profiles, I-profiles and square tubes, are widely used in a great many industries and sectors. Among other things, you can currently find them used in offshore installations, in the railway sector, and for swimming pools, wastewater treatment plants, cooling towers and infrastructure.
We deliver high quality fibreglass solutions
Fiberline fiberglass profiles are CE-certified, which is your guarantee of high and consistent quality every time you make a purchase from us. Among other things, CE marking on our fibreglass profiles means that both internal and external, the properties of our profiles are being constantly monitored and tested and that we can ensure traceability from raw materials through to your end products.
One of Fiberline’s distinguishing features is our production process, which is called pultrusion. This process involves pulling fibres through an enclosed tool where they acquire their very special properties. In addition, the quality also remains consistently high, because it is a continuous process.
