Growing use of plastic cladding

The current economic crunch and the call for more energy-efficient buildings have led companies to reinvestigate the use of traditional construction materials and to consider alternative composites, such as glass reinforced plastic (GRP), for some applications.  Originally developed in 1938 for use in insulation, GRP is highly durable and combines a number of attributes including high impact strength, low weight, dimensional stability and weatherability. GRP has been used successfully in projects such as the new 3 050m² Masscash Holdings trading warehouse, contracted to Scheltema. The warehouse, with an apex height of 12m which affords the client flexibility in its racking layout and allows for bulk storage of up to six metres, was one of the first large-scale projects in the Western Cape to make use of the non-fragile GRP sheeting known as Modek GRP Walk-on.
