The challenge

PLURA Polydeck helped resolve the following issues with the use of our GRP security fencing.


Made fully from GRP, POLYsade security fencing is strong and secure.


POLYsade cannot conduct electricity: eliminating the need for bonding.

No lever off pails

Due to our pass through pails, you are unable to lever them off, lowering the security risk.

Fast installation

POLYsade panels are lightweight and quick to install, requiring less trackside time for installation.

The outcome

PLURA’s POLYsade GRP Security Fencing was the perfect solution for the Crossrail Hayes enclosure. Featuring high security, touchsafe fixings and and lightweight panels with fast installation times as a few of the many benefits of GRP fencing.

Advantages of GRP

GRP is a great replacement for traditional steel fencing, with many benefits.
