What is GRP or glass reinforced plastic?
GRP or glass reinforced plastic allows a structurally tested, lighter alternative to aluminium and timber. GRP is not at risk of sweating / condensation or cold bridging like aluminium. Nor is GRP open to wood worm, moisture absorption or potential rotting such as timber.
With a Patent currently pending, Leka Systems will be the only UK company authorised to manufacture or sell a GRP conservatory roof system.
The Leka Systems team of highly skilled mechanical engineers have spent countless months developing our conservatory roof structure, ensuring the overall GRP pultruded product has a final design that meets the following criteria:
- Structurally tested profile over various spans
- Adequate connection points to interlink our system and its associated components
- To allow no thermal bridging points
- Maintaining a lightweight structure and keeping the overall roof within the weight of current glass roofs.
