Pipex px Installs 60 Linear Metres of FRP Single Face Parapet Fencing to Replace Rotten Timber

FRP Single Face Parapet Fencing

Last month, Pipex px supplied and installed 60 linear metres of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) single-face parapet fencing to replace rotten timber parapet fencing along a small road bridge in Lancashire, UK.

The original timber parapet fencing was in very poor condition and was supported by corroded metallic angles; posing a great risk to public safety.

Pipex px says its FRP parapet replacement, manufactured from EXTREN and SAFPLANK FRP profiles, is strong, durable, and corrosion resistant, with a design life expectancy of 60+ years.

Manufactured off-site in modular sections, the parapet fencing was installed onto pre-cast threaded anchors resulting in a fast installation (installed in less than a week), therefore reducing disruption to local residents and reducing risk for on-site personnel completing the refurbishment.

Pipex px says the other benefits to using FRP fencing as a replacement are:

  • Smooth front and rear face versions available
  • Lightweight - faster to install & no heavy machinery required
  • Non-conductive - ideal for electrified environments
  • Fire retardant
  • Superior structural integrity
  • Bespoke design to suit customer requirements - wide range of colours and finishes available
  • Minimal maintenance
  • Our parapet modules feature versatile adjustment so can be adapted on-site if required
  • All profiles manufactured to BS EN 10204:2004 Cert 3.1 Quality Assurance
