Darjon Mouldings worked in conjunction with contractors to establish parameters for applying Fibreglass (GRP) to this installation in Hutton, Essex. The pond is rock lined and plant beds have been incorporated to create a vibrant and colourful feature for this Essex country garden. The installation is approximately 100 square metres.
The client was aware of the hard wearing properties of fibreglass and chose Darjon Mouldings to produce and install this pond due to their experience in similar areas. Traditional pond linings would not have been suitable due to the scale and shape of the project.
Despite being more expensive to implement, fibreglass was the ideal material for construction and will last a life time due to Darjon Mouldings following the correct procedures.
Fibreglass when correctly used, will provide a strong, attractive and durable finish:
- Lasts a lifetime – made of the toughest glass reinforced plastic.
- No rips or leaks – because the unit has no seams and is one continuous surface.
- Fire resistant resin available upon request.
- Chemical resistant resin available upon request.
“Here in the UK, the term ‘Fibreglass’ has become the universal term for this material. There are, however, a number of terms and spellings used to describe Fibreglass and these include Fiberglass, Fibre Glass, Fiber Glass, Glassfibre, Glassfiber, Glass Fibre, Glass Fiber and GRP, or Glass Reinforced Plastic.”
