Bespoke GRP Fabrications
Range of Standard Fibreglass Profiles Available
Our Custom GRP Dura Profile Structures and Fabrications for Industrial Environments
The experienced Dura Composites team has extensive knowledge and practical experience of fibreglass reinforced plastic and other related emerging materials, so we can help you with even the most technically challenging or bespoke solutions. Our GRP fabrications are produced from our market leading Dura Profile – a collection of heavy duty, corrosion resistant fibreglass profiles suitable for a wide range of applications.
The ability of Dura Profile to guard against deterioration from industrial chemicals and environmental factors make it a logical and cost-effective alternative to carbon, steel, aluminium, wood or other conventional materials. We carry a large stock holding of GRP profile, including standard Angle, Channel, Box and Tube sections. As well as the standard range, Dura Composites GRP profiles can be produced in a vast number of dimensions and are available in five different resin systems depending on the application (subject to extended lead times).
Dura Profile enables a high degree of design freedom and offers exceptional material properties for a wide range of applications. Please call us on +44 (0)1255 423601 to discuss your ideas with one of our expert team.
Resin systems include:
A high quality industrial grade which is standard on the vast majority of our Dura Profile product range. It features high levels of chemical resistance and fire retardancy.
A general purpose economic resin with good corrosion and chemical resistance that is suited to less harsh environments.
Enhanced chemical resistance, higher operating temperature and increased fatigue resistance. Available by special order.
Enhanced fire and smoke properties for use in areas where fire resistance, low smoke and toxicity are important factors, such as rail tunnels and offshore platforms.
Dura Profile comprises of a range of FRP sections made using pultruded technology that has a range of applications typically to replace steel or wood. Weighing around 50% less than steel, Dura Profile offers equivalent performance for considerably less weight. This results in major cost savings due to more economical transportation, handling and on-site fitting. Supplied as single profiles, flat pack or pre-fabricated structures anywhere in the world, Dura Profile is fast becoming the material of choice for work platforms, ladders, handrailing, cable trays, flow sub-structures and much, much more.
The most common form of connections are made by mechanical fasteners. Bonded joints are also an option and selection of the appropriate method will depend on the:
- Distribution of loads within the assembled structure.
- Necessity to disassemble the structure components at a later stage.
- The environmental conditions during fabrication
- The environment in which the assembled structure will be used.
