GRP has opened up many new avenues for Architects and creative designers, its unique physical properties allow it to be easily tooled, molded and manufactured to meet almost any specification. In order to imitate the original detailing found on traditional roofing all of our moulds for grp roofs and features are taken from hand crafted lead, copper and tile patterns.
Realistic surface finishes, colour matching and even aging is achievable. We have a large range of special moulds, which can be used in numerous ways such as on lift shafts, restaurants, entrances, etc.. The advantages of working with GRP are reduced weight, increased strength and minimal maintenance.
Replicas or replacements of past or existing structures can be manufactured in GRP, working from photographs or even measuring what is left of the original feature.
Most of our roof turrets can be adapted to offer a means of achieving inlet and outlet ventilation with the addition of aluminium ventilation louvres, whilst providing an attractive architectural enhancement of the property on which they are installed.
For simple free air movement in a roof space slots can be routered in to the GRP which is then backed with insect mesh.
What is GRP?
An abbreviation for 'glass reinforced polyester' GRP is a lightweight, durable and astonishingly tough constructional material with a very long life span.
Our GRP roof turrets are also easier to install than their traditional material counterparts, require no painting and minimal maintenance.
A great deal of attention is given to the moulding details of our cupolas to ensure a truly authentic looking finish.
