FRP is especially well suited for environments where corrosion is a risk factor. The material is self-extinguishing and halogen free. Cable ladders are UV-protected and can withstand low temperatures.
Fixing such as splice plates are usually supplied in stainless steel. However, if required, these fixings can also be supplied in FRP material, to get a completely metal-free installation. Using our Smart Jig drill templates makes it easy to customize support profiles and drill perforations in the correct spot.
What are the benefits of using FRP?
FRP has great corrosion resistance! The system can be supplied with FRP fixings, instead of stainless steel.
Quick and Flexible Installation
All our systems fit together, which is why it is easy to combine the FRP system with other steel support systems such as Mekano®. A Smart Jig drill template is used to simplify installation.
Self-extinguishing & Halogen-free
The FRP system is self-extinguishing and halogen-free. It is UV-protected and can withstand low temperatures.
The FRP systems are available in 3D design libraries, to facilitate easy engineering.
Where is it optimal to use FRP?
FRP is a great choice for industrial areas with a corrosive environment. FRP systems are available as light weight installations, or heavy-duty systems with high load capacity.
Marine farming & aquaculture
In the marine farming industry it is especially crucial to avoid rust.
In open car parks without walls a common challenge is the accumulation of dust and salt. This can cause contamination and consequnetly, corrosion on the steel systems. A major concern is that rust water could drip from the steel systems and damage the parked cars. To avoid this challenge we recommend using FRP systems in open car parks.
FRP is the best solution for substations, transformers and similar. There is no need to worry about earthing as FRP is neither magnetic nor conductive.
FRP is a preferred choice in highly corrosive environments with high chloride content and humidity. Swimming pools and other aqua centres usually have this challenging environment.
