What is FRP
FRP (Fibre Reinforced Polymer) doors are made of versatile, man-made composite materials that are rapidly becoming popular around the world, replacing wood, metal and concrete as sustainable substitutes. Usage of FRP ranges from Aerospace and Defence to housing, marine construction, transportation, chemical and other engineering uses. Shutter and frames

FRP Shutters: Our ISO 9001-2015 certified factory manufactures and supplied Fibre Glass shutters of 31/35/45mm (+/-1mm) thickness with seasoned hard wood of styles such as top rail, lock rail and bottom rail. The FRP skin is 1.5mm/2mm thick. Shutters are waterproof as well as mild acid/alkali resistant, manufactured rigorously in line with IS 4020 1998 test standards.
FRP Frames: We manufacture and supply FRP frames, designed with a cross section of 1.5 mm thick FRP laminates. Core of the frame consists of seasoned hard wood as infill material.
Wood has traditionally been the preferred material for building products, however it is a scarce resource and has led to serious environmental crises, including rapid depletion of forest cover. In the pursuit of finding suitable and superior substitutes, there has been extensive R&D for FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic) and GRP (Glass Reinforced Polymers).
This makes this material have the following unique benefits:
• Water, Termite and Chemical Resistant
• Easy to drill, trim, paint, polish and install
• Light-weight with high strength and stiffness
• Aesthetically pleasing
• Highly modifiable, with many variants and colours
• Dimensionally stable
Installation of FRP Doors
One of the many benefits of FRP Doors include the ease of installation. This means they can be fixed in wooden, marble, masonry, ferro cement or FRP Frames, making them the ideal choice for any type of aesthetic looks that need to be achieved.
FRP is made of a sandwich structure, which consists of two albeit high strength face sheets (Glass Fibre Polymers composites), bonded by liquid adhesive to a light-weight core that is Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) or Polyurethane Foam. Each component by itself is relatively weak and flexible, however, when combined in a sandwich panel, they produce a stiff, strong yet light-weight structure. Core materials sere to stabilize face sheets against buckling under compression, torsion or bending loads, providing a rigid and highly effective structure. Sandwich concept is one of the most widely accepted forms of composite structures in primary load bearing structures and their construction.
