Benefits of GRP

Long Term Cost Savings

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 A nti-Slip properties of our GRP Products further eliminate costly ‘Slip Ups’ in the work place, significantly reducing Health & Safety costs.  Relinea's GRP Products do not hold any theft value. 

Highly Corrosion Resistant

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

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

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.

Lightweight

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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