    Profile

    Providing engineers with a high degree of design freedom.

    d² Dura Profile is a collection of heavy duty, corrosion resistant fibreglass profiles suitable for a wide range of applications. It’s ability 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 profile, including standard Angle, Channel, Box and Tube sections, all of which are designed to meet or exceed the higher performance E23 grade requirement of the BS EN 13706 standard (which covers the specification of GRP pultruded profiles).

    If you’re looking for safety handrailing, we can provide two GRP solutions – Fabrication Handrailing and Key Clamp Modular Handrailing. By seamlessly integrating either solution with our d² Dura Grating and Dura Profile components, a secure and durable working platform is ensured.

    Safer.

    We push boundaries

    We don’t leave performance to chance; we engineer it into every d² Dura Profile structural beam and component section we manufacture, so you can design safe GRP structures in total confidence.

    Stronger.

    Unrivalled performance-to-weight ratio

    On average, d² Dura Profiles exceed the challenging E23 Grade defined by the Pultrusion Standard BS EN 13706 by an astounding 50%. That’s not just a modest improvement; it’s a revolution in performance.

    Greener.

    Delivering sustainable change

    Our unique GRP profile designs use less raw material without compromising strength or performance, resulting in major carbon savings of up to 50% versus competitor products. We’ll even re-purpose products for you at the end of their use, making us the greenest choice.

    Proven.

    All the data you need, instantly

    We delve deep into the properties of the microstructures of d² Dura Profiles as well as our fully pultruded lengths to determine their strength characteristics so you can make decisions based on fact, not guesswork.

    Applications

    • Structural Profiles

      d² Dura Profile heavy-duty beam sections are a revolutionary innovation in the industry. The superior strength-to-weight ratio allows for the use of smaller or fewer components without compromising performance. Angle, Channel, Beam, Box and Tube are stocked as standard with options for special order.

      • A logical and cost-effective alternative to carbon, steel, aluminium and wood.
      • Being up to 50% lighter than steel translates to an equivalent reduction in carbon footprint.
      • Profiles can be cut to specific sizes by our fabrication team.

    • Safety Handrailing

      Our Fabrication Handrailing boasts the market-leading d² Dura Profile components, while our Key Clamp Modular Handrailing uses Top Rail, Mid Rail, and Upright Tubular Components. Both options offer installers the advantage of straightforward construction and swift installation.

      • Simple component construction with pre-assembled options.
      • GRP’s non-conductive properties make it suitable for electrified environments.
      • Lightweight but strong sections resulting in ease of transport and handling.

    FAQ

    d² Dura Profile is a comprehensive collection of structural profile sections made from high performance Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) commonly used in construction and engineering applications where a combination of strength, durability, and corrosion resistance is required.

    Exclusive to Dura Composites, Dura Profile beams are used as structural components in place of traditional materials like steel or wood.

    European Standard EN 13706 specifies the minimum requirements for the quality, tolerances, strength, stiffness and surface of structural profiles. The standard divides pultruded structural profiles into two classes – E23 and E17, with E23 having the most stringent requirements for quality. On average, d² Dura Profiles exceed the challenging E23 Grade by an impressive 50%, allowing designers to select profiles that are either twice as strong or a third smaller when compared to GRP competitors, adding effieicny and cost saving to a project. Not only this, but d² Dura Profile can also be half the weight of their steel counterparts too, making them easier to lift, transport and install.

    Being up to 50% lighter translates to an equivalent reduction in the carbon footprint of Dura Profiles, making our structural beams a sustainable choice for environmentally conscious projects. In the case of our GRP channel for example, the d² Dura Profile 203 Channel can be used in place of a 125x65x15 Steel Channel section, achieving a 37% carbon reduction. And what’s more, we’re the first GRP company in our industry to offer an end-of-life and waste GRP solution that doesn’t rely on landfill and incineration.
