The Future of Fencing: Why GFRP is Replacing Steel
Steel is on the way out, Fibre is the new fencing material

At I-TAC, we're constantly innovating and providing our clients with the best possible solutions. Today, we're excited to announce an expansion of our product portfolio through a strong association with FibreFence, a leading manufacturer of GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) fencing systems.

FibreFence, a trusted partner since January 2024, offers a revolutionary alternative to traditional steel fencing. GFRP fencing systems are poised to become the future of perimeter security, and here's why:

Superior Strength, Durability, and Frangibility

Don't be fooled by the lighter weight of GFRP. This innovative material boasts exceptional strength, even exceeding that of steel in some applications. GFRP is also highly resistant to corrosion, rust, and extreme weather conditions, ensuring long-lasting performance. An often-overlooked benefit of GFRP fencing is its frangibility. This means it can be designed to break under a certain amount of force, which can be a crucial safety feature in some applications.

Reduced Maintenance Needs

Unlike steel fencing, which requires regular maintenance to prevent rust and ensure structural integrity, GFRP is virtually maintenance-free. Its inherent resistance to corrosion eliminates the need for painting or coating, saving you time and money in the long run.

Applications for Airports and Major Facilities

The unique properties of GFRP make it ideal for high-security applications. Its non-conductivity makes it perfect for areas with sensitive electronic equipment, while its lightweight nature simplifies installation without compromising strength.

Benefits Beyond Strength

The advantages of GFRP fencing extend beyond its impressive strength. Here are some additional benefits:

  • Aesthetics: GFRP comes in a variety of colors and finishes, allowing for a more aesthetically pleasing look compared to traditional steel fencing.

  • Radio Frequency Transparency: Unlike steel, GFRP allows radio frequencies to pass through it, minimizing interference with communication systems.

  • Safety: GFRP is non-sparking, making it ideal for use in areas with flammable materials or explosive hazards.

GFRP Fencing Options: Mesh, Grating, Railing & Gates

FibreFence offers a comprehensive selection of GFRP fencing solutions, including mesh panels, grating for walkways, safety railing systems, and secure gates. This allows you to create a fully integrated security perimeter that meets your specific needs.
