GRP fibreglass architectural mouldings

GRP – the architect's and builder's choice

If you need a tough, long lasting building material that's also cost-effective, try the architect's choice – Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP).

Because GRP can be moulded into almost any shape, and can be finished to look just like traditional stone, concrete or ceramic, it has become popular with builders and architects alike – whether restoring a Victorian residence or constructing a state-of-the-art shopping centre.

Versatile, lightweight GRP mouldings

From design to manufacture, we can mould GRP into almost any shape – including turrets, cornices and fascias, chimneys and many architectural features.

Our recent projects have included GRP mouldings for sports stadiums, shopping malls, and new office complexes – all designed to our clients' exact specifications.

Avoid expensive repairs and rebuilds with GRP building features

Using GRP will help you avoid expensive repairs and upkeep in the long term.

That's because it has a high strength-to-weight ratio, is weather and corrosion resistant and is virtually maintenance free.

We'll help you design the right architectural mouldings for your needs and then fabricate them, finishing them to your specification or to match the material being imitated. Then we will perform the installation too.

Best of all, GRP can be moulded into complex shapes quickly – saving you time when compared to sourcing traditional materials.

Your GRP fibreglass mouldings guide

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) is the building material of the 21st century – and its architectural uses are almost unlimited.

It's lightweight, hard-wearing, weather and corrosion resistant – and can be moulded into almost any shape. This makes it ideal as a replacement for architectural structures from turrets and gutters and towers to decorative mouldings.

GRP architectural mouldings are also cost-effective when compared with traditional building materials such as stone, concrete or ceramics – both to manufacture and to install.

And because they're virtually unaffected by weathering or corrosion, you will save money on building maintenance costs.

So whether you're repairing part of an old building or creating a new one, make sure you use GRP-moulded structures to ensure that your property will stand the test of time – while reducing your costs.

What are the advantages of GRP mouldings?

GRP fibreglass mouldings from Sui Generis are manufactured in-house and can be moulded into both simple and complex structural shapes for your building. These are just some of their advantages:

  • Weather resistant
  • Lightweight
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Easy to clean
  • Impact resistant
  • U.V. stable
  • Low maintenance
  • Indefinite life expectancy.

Why use a GRP moulding instead of the real thing?

Stone and brick can wear away over time, plant life can cause mortar to fail and ceramics can chip – but GRP eliminates all these risks and has an indefinite lifespan.

GRP mouldings also beat traditional building materials on price – both in terms of the raw materials themselves and their installation.

Add in reduced maintenance costs over time and an indefinite lifespan and it's easy to see why both builders and architects consider GRP a viable alternative to traditional building materials.

Safe, durable and cost-effective – GRP mouldings will give you long lasting peace of mind.

Are there other benefits to GRP fibreglass mouldings?

Yes. These are just some of the properties of GRP:

  • Corrosion Proof
  • Chemical resistant
  • Leak free
  • Impact resistant
  • Easy installation.

Do your GRP mouldings conform to regulations?

Yes. Our fibreglass mouldings are manufactured to the highest standards using quality fibreglass materials right here in the UK – in any shape you need.
