THE

COSTS.

We are proud to offer a product that is not only 75% lighter than steel & nonconductive, but also better for the environment producing less Co2 emissions in its production.

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
