GRP​ ​Flat​ ​Roofing​ ​-​ ​What​ is​ ​GRP​ ​and​ ​Where​ ​Is​ ​It Used?

GRP_Flat_Roof_BriteliteInvented​ ​in​ ​1938​ ​by​ ​Russel​ ​Games,​ ​GRP​ ​or​ ​Glass​ ​Reinforced​ ​Plastic​ ​was​ ​originally​ ​used​ ​in boat​ ​design​ ​and​ ​water​ ​storage​ ​facilities​ ​but​ ​in​ ​recent​ ​years​ ​it​ ​has​ ​been​ ​developed​ ​into​ ​a lightweight​ ​and​ ​durable​ ​roofing​ ​material.

Glass​ ​Reinforced​ ​Plastic​ ​is​ ​manufactured​ ​from​ ​a​ ​high​ ​quality​ ​polyester​ ​resin​ ​and​ ​hardened​ ​with chopped​ ​mat​ ​glass​ ​fibres​ ​to​ ​form​ ​a​ ​strong​ ​and​ ​durable​ ​laminate​ ​that​ ​is​ ​capable​ ​of​ ​being moulded​ ​into​ ​almost​ ​any​ ​shape,​ ​while​ ​still​ ​remaining​ ​100%​ ​waterproof.  GRP​ ​Flat​ ​roofing​ ​is​ ​traditionally​ ​“wet”​ ​laid,​ ​this​ ​process​ ​involves​ ​applying​ ​liquid​ ​resin​ ​to​ ​a​ ​flat timber​ ​roof,​ ​before​ ​manually​ ​adding​ ​glass​ ​reinforcement.

Britelite​ ​flat​ ​roofing​ ​have​ ​perfected​ ​this​ ​method​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​tough​ ​and​ ​durable​ ​flat​ ​roof​ ​that​ ​will outperform​ ​and​ ​outlast​ ​any​ ​of​ ​their​ ​thermoplastic​ ​rivals. Britelite​ ​have​ ​been​ ​in​ ​the​ ​business​ ​of​ ​transforming​ ​homes​ ​for​ ​more​ ​than​ ​45​ ​years,​ ​offering​ ​such high​ ​standards​ ​that​ ​in​ ​2014​ ​we​ ​were​ ​granted​ ​Which?​ ​Magazines​ ​Trusted​ ​Trade​ ​Status​ ​Award​ ​in recognition​ ​of​ ​our​ ​long​ ​standing​ ​commitment​ ​to​ ​quality​ ​and​ ​customer​ ​service.
