Equipment Enclosures and Shelters for Harsh Environments
Over the past few decades, glass fiber-reinforced polyester (GRP) has proven to be a highly resilient and durable material, and is fast becoming the medium of choice when designing protective enclosures for field-based instrumentation and equipment.
The main competitive material used in this application sector is sheet metal; Intertec’s GRP is produced using long fiberglass strands, which make it almost as strong as stainless steel yet some 75% lighter.
In addition, GRP offers exceptional resistance to corrosion, as it does not rust or degrade in any meaningful way, and well as being an excellent insulator and intrinsically flexible.
In its basic form, these properties make GRP a superb material for manufacturing robust outdoor enclosures, allowing maintenance-free lifecycles of 30 years and more.
