Types of fibreglass and their uses

Fibreglass is one of the best for strength and durability

Fibreglass is a reinforced plastic material composed of glass fibres embedded in a resin. It can be used to

With the properties of fibreglass meaning it can be designed to mould an endless amount of shapes, the populariry of it is continiously increasing

As the use for sustainable and modern materials is increasing, fibreglass moulding is becoming very popular as a means of strength and durability. Stuart:Pease have been designing, manufacturing and installing fibreglass mouldings for over 50 years.

The Exceptional Strength of Dura Profile

Pultruded composite sections are manufactured by combining various resins with pure fibre reinforcement. They are formed and cured in a process that is continuous creating a product of extraordinary strength and resilience. The resultant profile creates many benefits and mechanical properties, some exceeding those of metal.

  • Exceptional strength, toughness & consistency
  • High degree of design freedom
  • Offers advantages over steel, aluminium & timber

Weighing up to 80% less than steel and 30% less than aluminium, Dura Profile offers equivalent performance for considerably less weight.

The high strength to weight ratio has relevance for many applications including walkways, sub-floor platforms, bridges, aerospace components, and structural applications, cooling towers, waste treatment facilities and oil and gas installations.

The maintenance free material: Dura Tread Fibreglass

Dura Tread fibreglass grating is lightweight and chemical resistant which makes it ideal for the chemical, port and harbour industries.

Dura Tread is suitable for various applications as it weighs approximately one third as much as steel grating and has the added benefit of being corrosion resistant. The chemical properties of mesh of Dura Tread fibreglass gratings can be used for walkways in corrosive environments as well as offering other advantages:

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Fire resistant
  • Non-magnetic
  • Impact resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Non-slip
  • Maintenance free

Concrete and Construction: Dura Slab Fibreglass

Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for duct covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications to replace old, heavy & cumbersome traditional flooring materials and covers.

The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for duct covers rather than using steel, timber or concrete systems due to its lower weight, anti-slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.

  • Anti-slip surface
  • Lightweight
  • High strength
  • Fast installation
  • Anti corrosive
  • Fire resistant
  • Impact resistant
  • Zero maintenance
