Benefits of GRP

Long Term Cost Savings

GRP Stair Tread Covers

Relinea’s GRP products offer considerably low life cycle costs due to their maintenance free, corrosion resistant and impact resistant characteristics, compared with traditional materials. The anti-slip properties of our GRP products further eliminate costly ‘slip ups’ in the work place, significantly reducing health and safety costs.

Furthermore, our GRP products do not hold any theft value.

Highly Corrosion Resistant

Corrosion Resistant GRP

Even in highly aggressive areas, Relinea’s GRP products offer excellent corrosive resistance. Corrosion is a multimillion pound problem and represents a cost of 4% of a country’s GDP. Relinea eradicates this costly corrosion challenge.

Maintenance Free

Maintenance Free GRP

No replacing, re-painting, or repairing. With a life span of 50 years and little or no maintenance expenditures, GRP products will significantly reduce or eliminate life cycle costs.

Slip resistance

Slip resistance GRP

With 35% of all major injuries at work caused by slips or trips, Relinea’s GRP flooring products provide outstanding anti-slip characteristics even in wet or oily conditions. Our integral grit finish offers the highest degree of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface.


How lightweight is GRP?

GRP products can be up to 80% lighter than steel, minimising the risks involved with manual handling and reducing installation costs by removing the requirement for heavy lifting gear.

High Strength

Strength properties of GRP

Relinea’s GRP products offer exceptional strength-to-weight ratios. Our exceptional light weight products possess similar heavy weight strength properties to steel.

Ease of fabrication

Ease of fabrication of GRP

All our products can be easily fabricated using standard hand tools such as circular saws. Furthermore, our GRP products can be easily fabricated on site if required, without affecting the products’ corrosion resistance characteristics.

Fire Retardant

Fire retardancy of GRP

Our products can be manufactured to meet specific fire and self-extinguishing requirements. Our Phenolic products meet stringent fire resistant classifications for the Oil & Gas industry and our plate products can be manufactured with a Class 1 laminate to BS 456.

Low Installation Costs

Low Installation costs of GRP

It’s a magic formula:

Lightweight+ Easy Fabrication = Low Installation Costs.

Most GRP product installations can be completed in fewer man-hours, without the need for heavy lifting gear.

Impact Resistance

Impact Resistance of GRP

A severe impact will cause permanent damage to metal grating. The innate elasticity of our GRP products means that they suffer no damage from a heavy impact.

Ergonomic properties of GRP

The innate elasticity of Relinea’s GRP flooring products means they have a slight ‘give’ underfoot, making them more comfortable to stand on. Hence, it can reduce back ache for employees who are on foot for long periods of time.


Non-Conductive properties of GRP

Relinea’s products are ideal for use in areas where conductivity is a concern. Due to their non-conductive nature our products do not have to be earthed.


Non-sparking properties of GRP

Due to their non-sparking properties, GRP is ideal for installations where the risk of sparking from a tool dropping onto steel grating could cause a fire hazard.

Inert Qualities

Inert Qualities of GRP

Our fibreglass products are electronically transparent so they do not affect electromagnetic or radio wave frequencies.
