Pultruded Fiberglass Structural Shapes: FRP Pultruded Profiles


Kenway Composites provides an extensive array of pultruded fiberglass structural shapes and FRP pultruded profiles through Creative Pultrusions.

FRP Structural Profiles Include:

Angles Channels Flat Sheets
I Beams Rectangular Tubes Round Tubes
Sludge Flights Solid Rods Solid Square Bars
Studs & Nuts Square Tubes W Beams

 

In addition, Kenway offers the Creative Pultrusions’ Pultex® SuperStructural line of products. This line will reduce the material and labor cost associated with your structures. Moreover, the SuperStructural product line can span further and carry higher loads than traditional pultruded FRP I and W Beams.

The optimized fiber architecture and high fiber volume fraction provide a great Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) for the SUPERSTRUCTURALS.  As a result, SUPERSTRUCTURALS are superior to all other I and W shapes on the market. SUPERSTRUCTURALS are also 43% stiffer than typical pultruded profiles! Pultex® SUPERSTRUCTURAL angles have been optimized for connections. They are the number one choice for superior connection performance!

Moreover, Pultex® standard structural profiles and SuperStructurals will provide you with the lowest cost solution for your corrosion application! Review the Pultex® Pultrusion Design Manual for specific engineering design information on all of our FRP structural profiles.
