Industrial GRP design and manufacture a huge range of GRP Enclosures to provide housing solutions for a range of different applications. These robust and fully weatherproof GRP Enclosures are available in any size configuration, are rated up to IP65, and also provide excellent chemical resistance.
GRP Enclosures – Structural Design
All GRP Enclosures are designed in accordance with current legislation and European and British Standards.
Standard GRP Enclosure construction will provide an insulation U value of 2.2 W/m2/C. Increased levels of insulation up to 0.3 W/m2/C could be attained by integrating encapsulated foam pads into the construction.
Ventilation & Air Conditioning
Different levels of natural ventilation are available as integral parts of the GRP Enclosure wall or roof. There are many types of vents currently offered: stainless steel louvre vents, uPVC brick vents, aluminium powder coated louvre vents, all supplied with internal screens. Forced ventilation can be incorporated using fans or air conditioning. External GRP weatherproof cowls can also be fitted where required. Further details and design calculations on natural and forced ventilation can be obtained from our design team.
A comprehensive range of floor options are currently available. GRP single membrane floors for small GRP Enclosures, composite load bearing floors and steel sub-frames for larger GRP Enclosures. All steel sub-frames are produced in our in-house steel fabrication department, and are supplied as standard with certified integral lifting points, shot blast, zinc primed and painted to BS5493 Table 3 Part 3.
An extensive range of viewing windows are available. Options include standard toughened or laminated safety glass, or double glazed aluminium and uPVC windows.
We will supply a general arrangement drawing as standard on all items. This will be in AutoCAD format and is emailed for customer approval within an agreed period from the start of the contract. We also supply Method Statements, Risk Assessments and Lifting Plans where required. All Method Statements, Risk Assessments and Lifting Plans are compiled by a qualified Appointed Person.
In accordance with our policy of continuous development and improvement, we reserve the right to make changes in design and specification without notice.
