The Next Generation of GRP Roofing

The 185 GRP system is an exceptionally tough and hard-wearing fibreglass membrane that has been delivering unrivalled waterproof performance for over 40 years. Compared to other fibreglass systems, 185 GRP offers enhanced rain-resistance during application and superior weathering, offering an attractive glossier finish in a range of colours that has been proven to last for decades.

The 185 GRP system is always applied to Polyroof approved OSB3 or plywood decks, making it ideal for strip-and-replace residential or smaller work projects. When used for balconies, aggregate can be embedded within the topcoat for an economical and durable anti-slip solution. 185 GRP carries BBA certification with a certified lifespan of at least 25 years and is supported by Polyroof’s trusted accredited system guarantees.
