Working closely with all of the UK’s principal distribution network operators Fibex has developed a range of lightweight, non-conductive, corrosion, and fire-resistant products, ideal for use within the Power Industry.
Fibex GRP products are constructed from high-quality resins and manufactured to our robust quality management process, providing a cost-effective alternative to traditional materials such as concrete, metal, or timber.
Our GRP products are non-conductive, inert and non-sparking. Unlike traditional steel products, which conduct both heat and electricity, GRP products do not. This makes our GRP products some of the best products to use in an electrical substation environment.
If there was an issue with the electricity on-site, GRP products ensure that the electricity cannot be conducted elsewhere – ensuring that everyone on-site remains safe.
Our GRP products also have a fantastically long life span and are expected to last over twenty years. This longevity combined with the non-conductive properties of GRP makes it ideal for all electrical substation environments.
Due to their excellent non-conductive and lightweight properties, our GRP products are suitable for use throughout electrical substations and the power Industry, including in applications such as:
Our most popular products for the power sector include:
The Gas and Oil Industries have to consider corrosion and fire resistance. Being flame retardant, non-corrosive and non-conductive, Fibex GRP products are increasingly popular within these sectors.
With advanced design and highly developed manufacturing capabilities, Fibex creates products of superior structural integrity, whilst improving site safety and extending asset life. This helps to solve the key challenges of efficiency, reliability, and safety faced by the Oil and Gas Industries.
Having long life cycles and products that require no ongoing maintenance, Fibex GRP Products provide fantastic time and cost savings.
Applications of Fibex GRP Products in the Gas and Oil Industries are wide. They are often used in Offshore and Onshore drilling rigs, Gas processing plants, floating facilities, and storage spaces.
