Square tube TRIGLASS® – fibreglass

SQUARE TUBE TRIGLASS® composite profiles (GRP – FRP – CFRP), reinforced with fibreglass and/or carbon, represent one of the pultruded profiles made by Top Glass.
Partially available from stock, these structural pultruded profiles are used in corrosive enviroments for example in: galvanizing processes; chemical, petrochemical and water treatment systems; cooling towers; offshore installations; aerial platforms; walkways in railway systems; construction areas; and the inside of underground transport system tunnels.
Structural profiles are widely used in situations requiring excellent mechanical performance combined with resistance to corrosion, thermal insulation, lightness, elasticity and electrical insulation.
They offer outstanding ease of assembly and maintenance free performance compared to other materials such as wood or metal.
Because of their special mechanical characteristics, they are also used for constructing scaffolding during building renovations, deck framing, pedestrian bridges, and stair stringers.

Last but not least, Top Glass has developed an AQVA TRIGLASS ® version which has been certified in accordance with the French ACS (Attestation de Conformité Sanitaire of 29/05/1997 and its updates). This means it is suitable for contact with water intended for human consumption and can be used for use in water treatment systems.

Top Glass is able to offer these products on request in compliance with the technical specifications of the European Standard EN 13706-E23.
