PLANET OVER PROFIT
GFRP is short for Glass Fibre Reinforced Polymer, created by a process of dipping the fibre through a polymer resin, heat curing, then being formed & twisted into shape.
GFRP is used as a direct replacement for steel, being lighter, cheaper, more environmentally friendly, nonconductive & noncorrosive.
The benefits are endless!
Lightweight reinforcement –75% lighter than steel – less labour, less freight, faster & safer on-site handling
Eliminate pod delivery & pick up
Eliminate spoil removal
Non-conductive reinforcement – smelter & power station developments
Ease of accessibility in built up residential areas
Less wastage on reinforcement; deformed bar in lieu of reinforcing mesh
Prevent injuries from lifting reinforcing mesh. i.e back and shoulder injuries
Prevent cuts and abrasions from steel
48% less carbon emissions
Reduce blow outs or excessive concrete; less than the equivalent pod slab
Less fall overs or hold up during the slab stage - due to its user-friendly design
