Tube TRIGLASS® profiles – fibreglass

TUBE TRIGLASS® composite profiles (GRP – FRP – CFRP), reinforced with fibreglass and/or carbon, represent one of the pultruded profiles made by Top Glass.
They are versatile in use and suitable when a lightweight, durable and long-lasting product is needed.
Partially available from stock our pultruded frp profiles are intended for a wide range of sectors such as lighting, signage, telecommunications and furniture.

They can be used as: tool handles; telescopic tubes; handrail reinforcement; support for lighting fixtures; flagpoles; fencing; awnings; reinforcement for furnishing; antennas; setting up exhibition stands; or for the construction of portable, lightweight structures.

The dimensions in green are produced only by pullwinding technology. This allows producing tubes with circular sections reinforced with fibreglass placed both longitudinally and circumferentially with respect to the profile axis. This creates greater mechanical resistance and rigidity than in a traditional pultruded profile. These qualities are especially valued in making access platforms as well as insulating sticks used for grounding during the maintenance of high voltage power lines.
