About Sui Generis

Market leaders in fibreglass

Sui Generis (Latin: of its own kind, unique) was established in 1996 with the intention to specialise in bespoke fibreglass mouldings. However, at any early stage the versatility, robustness and consequent massive potential of fibreglass was recognised and gradual progression has seen the company become experts in a wide variety of fibreglass applications including Fibreglass Linings, Fibreglass Grating, Anti Slip Flooring Products and Spill Containment products.

In 2016, we celebrated our 20th anniversary year in business.

Throughout the UK

Whilst our manufacturing roots remain in Essex, our lining technicians attend client sites throughout the UK to apply fibreglass linings to damaged or leaking structures such as storage tanks, concrete bunds and cooling towers.

Despite its versatility, there are occasions when a GRP lining is not the ideal solution for refurbishment projects, if that is the case we can still assist as we are also ISO Quality accredited installers of industrial coatings.

Surface preparation

Additionally, if your substrate requires mechanical preparation prior to application of our fibreglass lining or coating, we are experts in surface preparation meaning that we can look after your project from start to finish.

Spill containment solutions

Much of the work we carry out on site is done in order to help our clients comply with environmental legislation and to complement this we also manufacture a wide range of spill containment solutions in our Colchester factory that can be despatched at short notice to any site within the UK.

Anti-slip flooring & grating

Another part of our gradual expansion included investment into our own grating manufacturing facility which now sees us produce the finest quality fibreglass grating at extremely competitive rates. The popularity of the grating and Anti Slip Flooring products that we produce is such that it has been necessary to invest in an additional factory to keep up with demand.

Decades of fibreglass experience

Whilst the fibreglass solutions we offer are wide and varied you can be assured that whatever the size or complexity of your project Sui Generis will have the individual knowledge and expertise to service your enquiry as excellent staff retention has allowed us to develop a wealth of personnel who have decades of fibreglass experience. Indeed, our personnel thrive on new challenges and welcome the opportunity to work alongside new and existing clients in order to ensure the smooth unfolding of each project. As a company, we pride ourselves on the fact that we have never let our growth distract us from our core principal of offering excellent customer service no matter the size or nature of the job.

Perhaps the biggest endorsement of our ability to undertake even the most challenging of projects is the fact that we were entrusted with refurbishing the historic iron works at St Pancras railway station. This four-year project commenced in 2003 and carried a value of eleven million pounds. The work involved ultra high pressure water jetting to remove old lead paint and the application of a modern high tech coating system.
