Round TRIGLASS® profiles – fibreglass

ROUND TRIGLASS® composite profiles (GRP – FRP- CRP), reinforced with fibreglass and/or carbon, represent one of the pultruded profiles made by Top Glass.
Partially available from stock, our pultruded profiles are intended for use in a wide range of sectors.
They are used as semi-finished bases in construction, in agriculture, for electrical applications, as structural reinforcements and for street furniture.

Round rods are also used in making technical items such as umbrellas, antennas and sport and leisure articles (for example, tent poles, in modelling and kites and as flagpoles or supports for banner advertisements).
Their shape and characteristics make them also widely used as reinforcements for sails in the marine sector.
