Black, grey and yellow colour as a standard. Although panels can be manufactured to the following:
- B.S. 4800 Colour Range
- B.S. 5252 Colour Range
- RAL Colour Range
A colour match service is also available.

Fybatex: 0.2 w/mK
Fybacore: The thermal conductivity is entirely dependent on the chosen substrate, but better than 0.35 “U” value is achievable.
Note: GRP sheet is up to seven times stronger than mild steel on a weight for weight basis.
Size & Thickness
Panels can be manufactured to a length of 3,300mm and a width of 1,525mm. Standard product range can be manufactured with either a plywood or Styrofoam filling – or even a mixture of both, and sometimes also includes a sheet of diamond mesh reinforcement. Thicknesses vary from 9mm to 100mm.
Panels are usually supplied on pallets and can be delivered anywhere in the UK within approximately 7-10 working days under normal circumstances. Each panel can be marked with a location code and panel size on the protective covering of the goods if required.
