Architectural fibreglass mouldings include: Wet room and shower flooring
Wet rooms, shower rooms and bathrooms are vulnerable areas to water penetration. Potential solutions include; purpose-made shower pans, wetroom trays or on-site GRP barrier layer fitting. See also GRP Planters.
Roof systems, Cladding & Sidings
GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) roofing and cladding systems are a seamless, leak-free and extremely cost-effective alternative to traditional pressed steel or aluminium panels. Long-lasting and robust, stuart:pease GRP roofing can be manufactured to any profile or shape of roof, including over-door canopy forms.
Fibreglass is also the ideal weatherproof and mouldable material for the construction of bespoke exterior features and housings, such as the air conditioning tower produced by stuart:pease and illustrated to the left.
Interior and exterior feature production
Wherever standardised architectural products are required, GRP offers an extremely cost-effective solution to the volume production of doors, walkway plates, handrails, platforms, staircases, fencing… the range is as wide as its applications. See stuart:pease‘ design & development service.
Architects and designers recognise fibreglass’s special qualities within various interior settings.
When backlit, the material’s translucency, with the density and colour varied according to choice, offers a further dimension of design freedom.
GRP as a primary structural material
Whilst fibreglass composites are widely used within the construction industry to strengthen or refurbish existing buildings, it is less well-known that laminates can be engineered and utilised to form the whole of a primary structure.
GRP’s strength, lightweight and reduced construction complexity offers several, significant advantages over heavy building materials.
