GRP Skin

GRP skin on a boat, as used on Composite Doors in Castleford, Normanton and PontefractGlass Reinforced Plastic, or GRP, has got a serious reputation. For keeping people safe, secure and protected against all weather conditions.

GRP was first developed in the UK during the Second World War. Then it was adopted by ship builders. And itís still being used today. Itís perfect for boats because itís super-strong and has exceptional wind and water resistance. In fact itís got so many great qualities, we wondered about changing its name to Get Real PerformanceÖ

If there was a medal for outstanding service for plastic, it would go to GRP.
Thatís why we use it for our Wakefield Door Company composite doors.
