GRP Cladding Panels

VulcaTuf® GRP Cladding Panels continue to be the specifiers choice due to its unlimited colour range, high resistance to vandalism and fire performance. GRP Cladding (Glass Reinforced Plastic) is one of the most versatile materials available, suitable in environments where other materials cannot be used – particularly Railways and Marine applications.

What is GRP Cladding?

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) Cladding is made from a continuous glass fibre matrix for higher impact resistance and reduced thermal movement.

VulcaTuf GRP Cladding Panels can be produced in any colour
and in a variety of finishes including anti-vandal textures. Available thicknesses range from 2mm to 12mm, depending on panel fixing centres.
