Long Term Cost Savings
GRP products offer considerably low life cycle costs due to their maintenance free, corrosion resistant and impact resistant characteristics, compared with traditional materials.
All our Flat Roof Skylights upstands are manufactured using GRP and a completely sealed seamless unit once the glass is installed making for a simple maintenance free hassle free installation product.
Highly Corrosion Resistant
Even in highly aggressive areas, Ascot Skylights GRP products offer excellent corrosive resistance.
No replacing, re-painting, or repairing. With a life span of 50 years and little or no maintenance expenditures, GRP products will significantly reduce or eliminate life cycle costs.
GRP products can be up to 80% lighter than steel, minimising the risks involved with manual handling and reducing installation costs by removing the requirement for heavy lifting gear.
GRP products offer exceptional strength-to-weight ratios. Our exceptional light weight products possess similar heavy weight strength properties to steel.
