The Sustainability of Interclamp GRP

A Frontrunner in Sustainable Construction

In today’s world, building green isn’t just a trend, it’s a necessity. As industries strive for eco-conscious solutions, Interclamp GRP Handrail Fittings and Tube emerge as a frontrunner in sustainable construction. Let’s delve into the eco-friendly features that make the system perfect for a greener future.

GRP’s Sustainable Strength

  • Sustainable Material: The benefits to GRP over conventional materials start during the manufacturing process. Unlike materials like steel and aluminium, GRP releases very minimal harmful products and also requires less energy to produce.

  • Durable & Long-Lasting: GRP’s inherent resistance to corrosion and chemicals ensures a long lifespan, minimising the need for replacements, resulting in reduced waste over the product’s lifespan.

  • Surprisingly Recyclable: Due to advances in modern day recycling technology, there are now processes that allow GRP to be recycled. This means that when the GRP system comes to its end of service life, landfill waste can be avoided, contributing to a circular economy.

Construction Convenience

  • Reduced Energy Consumption: A major benefit to the Interclamp GRP system is that it does not require welding, which translates to less on-site energy usage, minimising each project’s carbon footprint.

  • Less Material Waste: The modular design of Interclamp GRP products allows for precise planning and minimal material offcuts. It also allows for designs to be customised during installation or at a later date, reducing waste generated by plans changing.

  • Faster Installations: The simplicity of the Interclamp GRP fittings allows for a reduced installation time, leading to lower energy consumption and resource use.

Sustainable Savings

  • Low Maintenance: GRP’s resistance to corrosion and harsh environments eliminates the need for frequent painting or similar maintenance, reducing material use and associated environmental impact.

  • Lightweight Champion: GRP offers a vast weight reduction in comparison to steel, meaning transportation is easier, lowering fuel consumption and emissions.

  • Multipurpose Benefits: The GRP range also benefits from low electrical conductivity and low thermal conductivity making it perfect for a combination of environments. This ultimately reduces the need for multiple specialised products, lowering stock wastage and overall material consumption.

Company Pledge

Interclamp pledges to reach net zero by 2050. To reach this goal, an annual reduction target of 5% has been introduced starting from 1st November 2023. In order to assess performance against this target, the company’s carbon footprint will be re-assessed on an annual basis.
