Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) is a matrix of woven glassfibre sheets layered and set within resin; it has an excellent strength to weight ratio, and can be moulded into almost any shape and size with highly detailed textures, finishes and unlimited colours.
These lightweight solutions require little to no reinforcement in situ, and are manufactured at our in-house facilities to the highest standards using a unique process that gives us the fastest lead times in the market.
10 year warranty
All of our prefabricated chimneys are supplied with a 10 year product warranty (full terms and conditions available on request). Brickfab is the only manufacturer to hold both CGMA and BBA accreditations for both brick-clad and GRP chimneys.
- Quick to lift – Our Developer GRP chimneys are light, with removable lifting eyes for a quick and easy lift onto the roof.
