Universal GRP I-Beam Profiles are ideal for building frames and truss structures. They comply with BS EN 13706 E23/E17 standards and are sold in 6000mm lengths – we can cut these down to fit your requirements if needed – see here for more details.

Each profile has many benefits to it.

  • Exceptional strength: pultruded profiles are stronger than steel, and the high impact strength of GRP reduces any damage that may be caused by accidental collisions
  • Lightweight: GRP I-Beam profiles weigh 80% less than its steel counterparts and 30% less than aluminium. Even though there is less weight, the profiles provide a performance that is at an equivalent level
  • Corrosion resistant: although GRP is usually unaffected by exposure to chemicals and environments, they still have an added synthetic surface veil, which provides the profile with a resin rich layer which ultimately enhances the already excellent corrosion resistant properties
  • Maintenance free: the added corrosion resistant properties of FRP profiles remove the need for regular painting or surface treatment
  • Low thermal conductivity: all GRP I-Beam profiles have low thermal conductivity. They are around 1/250 of aluminium, and 1/60 of steel
  • Non-conductive: GRP Profiles are electrically non-conductive. This makes their specification ideal for cable trays, ladders, cover boards, etc
  • Electromagnetic transparency: GRP is transparent to a range of electromagnetic frequencies which makes it ideal for aerial masts and radar applications
  • Dimensional stability: GRP is resistant to all kinds of stretching, warping or swelling over a variety of temperatures and physical stresses
  • Thermal stability: these profiles are able to withstand exposure to temperatures of up to 65 degrees Celsius

We have a variety of other profiles available including H-Beam, Tube, C-Section, Box and Angle.
