Glass reinforced polyester

What is Glass Reinforced Polyester?

Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) is a single skin configuration that has three different weaves of glass fibre to give the product a good internal structural integrity, this is then impregnated with polyester resin to matrix it all together to produce the strong and extremely durable composite material.

Our Dart Valley branded high security and ligature resistant range is manufactured from quality GRP to provide an extremely robust solution. The range includes toilets, wash basins, bath filling stations, and accessories inlcuding shelves and mirrors

Why choose GRP?

Glass reinforced polyester is a high impact and corrosion resistant composite material. Although it is lightweight and makes it easy to mount on existing structures, it is also extremely robust. 

When designing load bearing products such as WCs, GRP is an ideal choice as its high strength properties can fulfil this need. GRP also allows for less material to be used than other structural materials, providing a safe, ligature resistant and practical solution for high security and custodial environments.
