The production of glass fibre / GRP water features is a niche undertaking since care must be taken during the manufacture to prevent future water seepage. Typically a glass fibre / GRP water features includes on-site lining of all water bearing components in GRP and the manufacture of related items such as sump boxes.
At the other extreme we have become involved with the creation of statuary designed to form the focal point of these features. An example of such work was the making of a 10 metre-high statue of Aurora for the P&O Cruise ship of that name.
We have accumulated special knowledge in this particular field and our experience uniquely qualifies us to undertake this complex and demanding work in the UK, Europe and worldwide.
We can provide a quality glass fibre / GRP wet rooms service drawing on our experience in GRP products. Shower and bathrooms are at risk from water penetration through a natural stone finish since stone is a permeable material and through grouting joints.
Our glass fibre / GRP wet rooms solution is ideal for tackling this particular problem. Our proactive shield is formed from GRP composite materials which are applied by hand using resin and gel-coats of marine grade that are of Lloyds Certified quality. These composite materials form an integral seamless membrane which covers the floor area and continues up the walls to a height of 200mm or to a specified height up to ceiling level. This membrane is applied by highly skilled specialists who take great care to ensure that a good finish is achieved on the sub-strata provided by the builder for the marbling or tiling work which follows.
Our material is completely unaffected by temperature conditions and, moreover, is impervious to water even when submerged. Our GRP lining therefore provides a hard, water impervious barrier on top of which marbling or tiling work can take place.
