GRP Composite Flat Sheet & Anti Slip Products

Smyth Composites manufacture a wide range of GRP anti slip products suitable for many applications where conventional materials would not be fit for purpose.  Our products provide a quick, safe, effective solution to slippery pedestrian or vehicle traffic areas where slips or falls are a potential hazard.


GRP (or fibreglass) is an immensely resilient material used in applications where high strength / light weight characteristics are required.  Our anti-slip sheeting is virtually indestructible, totally shatterproof, and will withstand severe climatic variables, it is therefore ideal for anti slip flooring.

Benefits include:

  • Slip Resistant – Reduces slips and falls
  • Impact Resistant – Long term durability
  • Effective in wet & oily conditions
  • Easy to fabricate – reduces installation costs
  • Ideal for surfaces that cannot be adequately prepared
  • Can be used immediately after fixing – minimizes downtime
  • Non-conductive – eliminates electrical & thermal hazards
  • Suitable for pedestrian, forklift and vehicle traffic areas
  • Helps to comply with the Disability Discrimination Act part 3
  • Maintenance free – will not rust or corrode
  • 65% lighter than steel – easier to handle and cheaper to install
