7 Benefits of GRP Enclosures for the Home

GRP, or Glass Reinforced Plastic, is a robust material which, when used to create secure and effective storage solutions, is designed to keep your wiring safe from external elements, such as water damage, corrosion and UV damage. At Enclosure Pro, we offer comprehensive electronic packaging solutions to suit your requirements when choosing the right GRP kiosk for your home.

Discover the GRP benefits on the blog and see if these robust protective cases are perfect for your home needs.

Which GRP enclosure is right for you?

When you are considering which GRP enclosure would be most suited to your needs, there are some things to take into consideration. For example:

  • What will you be storing?
  • How much space do you need?
  • Where would a GRP kiosk benefit you the most?
  • How many areas of your home, both inside and outdoors, require a safe storage solution?

What you will be storing will depend on your needs. Will you be storing something inside the home? Do you have a workshop that would benefit from a GRP storage unit? Perhaps you have a summer house or pool and have chemicals to store safely? Whatever your needs, we have a solution for you.

The amount of storage you need can be worked out once you have decided what you will need to store and where you will need to store it: 

  • Single-door GRP units are ideal for use in small spaces.
  • Double-door GRP units are larger than many of our other products and have more space to work with than our single-door counterparts.
  • Large GRP units offer the bonus of giving you more room to work, on top of the additional storage space.

When you are considering where to locate your GRP enclosures, keep their uses in mind. Will you need easy access for maintenance or to use securely stored items such as chemicals? Would a single-lined unit or a double-lined unit be more suitable? If you need assistance when making a decision, or would like to discuss your options, you can contact us to arrange a chat at a suitable time for you.

Is GRP a better option than steel?

Although steel enclosures are suitable for many environments, the benefit of GRP material does outweigh steel as a choice in some areas. The waterproof nature of Glass Reinforced Plastic means that the unit is easy to maintain; clean with mild detergent and, as you clean, inspect for any signs of wear. 

Why choose Glass Reinforced Plastic?

The main reason people choose an enclosure made of Glass Reinforced Plastic is its extremely effective ability to protect your wiring from environmental damage. Each unit is waterproof, highly resistant to corrosion and UV damage but, most of all, immune to electrical conduction.

GRP benefits

  1. Durable and Cost-Effective: GRP enclosures are highly resistant to impact, weathering, and corrosion, making them long-lasting even in harsh environments. This makes them more cost-effective than their counterparts.
  2. Lightweight: Despite their strength, GRP enclosures are relatively lightweight, which simplifies installation and reduces the need for heavy-duty supports.
  3. Low Maintenance: GRP requires minimal maintenance compared to materials like wood or metal, which can rust, rot, or need frequent repainting.
  4. Electrical Insulation: GRP is a good insulator, reducing the risk of electrical hazards, which is ideal for housing electrical components.
  5. Non-conductive: Being non-conductive, GRP enclosures enhance safety by reducing the risk of electrical shock.
  6. UV Resistance: GRP is resistant to UV rays, preventing degradation and maintaining appearance over time. 
  7. Chemical Resistance: GRP enclosures are resistant to a wide range of chemicals, making them suitable for various environments, including those with exposure to chemicals.
