    Retail & Manufacturing

    GRP Composites offer several advantages that make them well-suited for commercial environments like retail and manufacturing, such as strength and durability, design flexibility, chemical and corrosion resistance and a low maintenance lifecycle. Their ability to address specific challenges in these settings can lead to cost savings, improved performance and increased efficiency.

    We take product quality seriously.

    Composites, particularly Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP), are a highly cost-effective choice for retail and manufacturing operations, offering significant long-term benefits and reduced maintenance demands. GRP, known for its exceptional resistance to corrosion, proves invaluable in manufacturing processes where exposure to chemicals and corrosive agents is a constant concern. Moreover, its robust impact resistance is an asset in applications subjected to repeated or prolonged use.

    For scenarios where electrical conductivity poses a risk, GRP’s non-conductive properties make it a safe choice, minimising the potential for electrical accidents and hazards.

    In the retail industry, we’ve garnered substantial expertise, demonstrating that GRP and aluminium surpass traditional materials like plywood in terms of lifecycle advantages. Recent projects include the construction of heavy-duty exterior public walkways around superstores and multi-storey car park decks. Additionally, we’ve provided solutions for interior shopfitters, replacing rotting 18mm plywood, a material prone to severe degradation in chiller cabinet areas.

    We take product quality seriously, conducting rigorous in-house testing and advanced data modelling to guarantee optimal performance. Our commitment to ensuring product compatibility is reflected in our technical sales team’s ability to provide precise point load compliancy information, ensuring our products meet the unique needs of your project.

    Flooring Solutions

    Car Park Flooring

    We have developed a successful solution for car park decks, using our ‘industry-first’ pultruded 1 metre GRP Dura Slab panel sections. Ideal as a replacement flooring for failing single storey car park decks, raised car park extensions, multi-storey refurbishments and new build car parks, the modular system is quick and easy to deploy without the need for specialist equipment.
