Benefits of GRP fencing?

GRP fencing has a number of benefits:

  • Resistant to impact – the fencing returns to its original shape following impact
  • Easier to work with– the composite material is 50% lighter than other fencing materials, making it easier to transport and install
  • Cost effective – there are minimal requirements for repair with this system and therefore benefits from longevity, meaning there are no ongoing expenses
  • Strong and durable – has impressive load-bearing capabilities and bi-directional strength
  • Anti-theft – GRP fencing, railing and gates have no theft value, meaning it won’t fall victim to the rising number of metal thefts each year
  • Weather resistant – wind, rain and snow are no match for GRP fencing. It can withstand even the harshest of environments including UV rays
  • Less upkeep – GRP fencing is self-coloured and requires much less upkeep than traditional materials such as metal and timber, so no need for ongoing maintenance and painting
