Poles and barrier booms made of GRP score with further product advantages:
They break easily when this special property are of use (frangibility at the airport / for barriers). They defy road salt or salty air. And they are very easy to erect – i.e. with little manpower and muscle power.

Our portfolio includes standard and special solutions as well as turnkey systems including all services from consulting to dismantling. We are a globally active company that processes glass-fibre reinforced plastic with proven technologies and at the same time combines them in hybrid steel or concrete structures. This puts us in a position to offer each customer the optimum solution on an individual basis.
We distinguish ourselves through experience and know-how from over 50 years of GRP mast construction, high technical solution competence and in the management of complex projects in close cooperation with our customers and partners. Our global clients come from the industrial, public, construction and commercial sectors. We serve the infrastructure markets of transport, energy and telecommunications, but also realise applications in the lighting sector.
Our glass fibre reinforced plastic masts are manufactured using a patented centrifugal process: Glass fibre mats are wound around a metal mandrel and placed in a chrome-plated steel mould. During the subsequent spinning process, the reinforcement and matrix material are compacted by strong centrifugal forces and the addition of resins.
Instead of glass fibre, natural flax fibres are used to manufacture these environmentally friendly poles. At the same time, the poles remain extremely durable. In the Netherlands, we have already realised numerous projects with Circulus BV.
This colourful radio mast ensures the best reception in sunny Spain. Due to its low dead weight, the mast could be easily mounted on the roof of the fire station.
Freiburger Verkehrs AG expanded the city's suburban railway network. For this purpose, we supplied overhead line masts made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) on which flight warning spheres are mounted. This makes the overhead line of the railway line in Breisgau visible from a great distance.
Im "Zoo Basel" wurden die Außenanlagen der Menschenaffen umgestaltet. Durch die exotische Bepflanzung und schlanken Masten aus GFK, welche Bambus ähneln sollen, wurde der natürliche Lebensraum der Tiere imitiert.
Brown coloured, tiltable 15 m high church fair tree made of GRP with steel base plate and extra clamps for flag attachment. An adapter for a "real" tree was installed at the masthead.
You can even find our products on the highest mountains in Germany. In this case, a tiltable wind measuring mast with integrated lightning protection for the DWD (German Weather Service). This was transported to the top of the mountain and installed with the help of a helicopter.
The KIWI Connection, known for creative outdoor sports activities, commissioned a mobile "climbing mast" from us. The result: a 4.5 metre high GRP mast with climbing steps and rubber protection on the ground. This means that nothing stands in the way of climbing exercises away from the mountains or climbing gyms.
For a French weather service, we developed a mast that can be tilted in the middle, which makes it possible to maintain the sensors. 22 of 50 masts have already been delivered - to France, Valais & French Polynesia. The first delivery took place in October 2022, the remaining masts are scheduled to be delivered by 2025.
