Hambleside Danelaw offers GRP benefits

Hambleside Danelaw is offering architects an opportunity to learn about Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) roofing systems with its RIBA-approved CPD seminar.

The core curriculum seminar covers the invention, history and development of GRP, the basic process of manufacture and flat roofing applications of the material.

Hambleside Danelaw says GRP has many impressive environmental benefits, as it is safe to use in ”grey” water systems; is easy to repair; and at the end of its long service life, it is recyclable. The seminar covers these environmental aspects as well as other benefits of GRP within the building industry, which include the durable but lightweight nature of the material, and its ease of installation. GRP is also environmentally efficient, sustainable, aesthetically pleasing and has been used successfully in the building industry for over 60 years.

The CPD seminar guides delegates through the production of GRP, and how a component based system is fitted. The seminar goes on to compare this to typical ”wet-lay” GRP roofing systems, and looks at the differences in the installation processes.

The CPD also highlights the stability and longevity of GRP roofing systems, which do not suffer from ”diminishing repairability” over time, but also details the ease the repair when needed.

The seminar also includes case studies to show a range of uses, which Hambleside Danelaw says are popular with architects and technicians in particular.
