Fiberman FRP Structures: Fiberglass Specialty Shapes
FRP Specialty Shape products from Fiberman are top-quality structural building components useful in construction and general use.
Aluminum, wood and steel beams are being replaced around the world with stronger fiberglass structural members such as fiberglass Specialty Shapes. Builders are making the switch to fiberglass for construction projects for many reasons. Primary among them is the durability of FRP structures in extreme environments such as waste water treatment (WWTP), chemical processing plants, food processing facilities, or any environment where rust and wear take their toll on steel. How are fiberglass Specialty Shapes from Fiberman different?
FRP Structures and Shapes are:
- High in Strength
- Corrosion Resistant
- Lightweight — Weighs 80% less than Steel
- Low in Conductivity — Thermically and Electrically
- Low in Maintenance
- Dimensional Stability
- Have Electromagnetic Transparency
- Available in Custom Colors
About Structural FRP Fiberglass Specialty Shape
Our Structural FRP Members and Shapes consist of a combination of fiberglass reinforcements and thermosetting polyester or vinyl ester resin systems. Fiberglass structural shapes are produced in more than 100 standard shapes.The surface of all fiberglass products has a surfacing-veil which increases corrosion and UV resistance.
Fiberman Offers Fiberglass Specialty Shapes in Three Types of FRP Resin

Our all-purpose series of fiberglass shapes, with an isophthalic polyester resin system and UV inhibitor.
Another all-purpose series, with a fire retardant isophthalic polyester resin system and UV inhibitor.
A premium series of fiberglass Specialty Shape, featuring both fire retardant properties and high corrosion resistance. These shapes use a vinyl ester resin system with a UV inhibitor.
Applications for Fiberglass Specialty Shape
Fibreglass Specialty Shapes are excellent for use in heavy traffic areas, such as outdoor walkways on drilling platforms, in WWTP water treatment plants, in livestock facilities and anywhere you require secure and durable walking surfaces. The durable surfaces of these FRP Specialty Shape are an important feature to provide low maintenance in environments where moisture or harsh chemicals are present.

Fiberglass and Radio Frequency Transparency
In today’s connected world, we depend on cellular telephone signals, Wi-Fi networks and over the air radio and television signals. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are essential to on-site work environments. Steel structures significantly disrupt these signals. FRP Specialty Shapes are an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
