From a church spire for English Heritage to art deco window mouldings !
Fabrication work in the non marine sector meets exactly the same high standard you would expect from a team used to preparing GRP products for the harshest of environments and the most exacting of customers. Thinking of a one off kitchen design or moulding or be it that flume that doesn’t accelerate the kids the way it used to or a tired looking fairground ride – we’ve done it all. From damaged swimming pool linings to signage – if it’s a Fibre Glass / Carbon Fibre / Kevlar or composite based product then the GBR team can have it looking and performing like new – for a good deal less than you might expect. We are more than happy to work on one off items and very much like to be in on the design of something special and unique.
We were contacted by a building Company who had built HMS Sirius at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. They had a problem with people (children) climbing over the project and they needed a system which protected the boat, but kept the nautical theme. They had an idea, which we advised and changed slightly, we were given the go ahead and went to Gunwharf to supply and fit within a week.
WOW - That looks superb. Many thanks to you all for dealing with the job so promptly and efficiently. I wish we could deal with more people like you! Hope to speak to you again sometime.
Kind Regards, Shirley Parker, Reflect Contractors, Unit 5 Fulcrum 2, Solent Business Park, Solent Way, Whiteley, Fareham, Hampshire.
These photos are of a wooden balcony banister that was weathered and discoloured having been exposed to Sea air. This was an ongoing problem with the banisters having to be re-painted every year. We worked on each banister, dried, shaped, coated, colour coded and treated them and then refitted them to the luxury set of Apartments. Fibreglass is light and durable and is the ideal product here and these banisters could have been made entirely from fibre glass, colour coded as desired providing easy maintenance and excellent longevity.
This is a spire that we made from drawings by English Heritage for Whitby Abbey.
These are art deco fascias we built from drawings for a property in London, that used to have lead fascias but needed a more modern and easier maintenance material.

This is a coachroof that we built to the owners specification on a Moody 36. We initially took a mould from the coachroof area and replicated in fibre glass. We then, after close liaison with owner, designed a steel structure to house the windows and the coachroof section. Once steel work was undertaken, we made a mould of the coachroof out of wood and then made that out of fibreglass. All the fibre glass was then colour matched to the boat and structure was put in place with glass, teak hand rails and all electrics placed and working, with a solar panel on top to catch the sun.
