Clock Towers Our standard range of GRP clock towers can be fitted with up to four exterior clocks. Real bronze bells and electronic bell chiming systems can be added for that finishing touch.

Roof Turrets GRP cupolas and roof turrets are manufactured in a variety of styles and can be customised with any of our copper weathervanes, used for ventilation or a source for natural light.

Pillar Clocks Pillar clocks are free standing external clocks. Standard designs include the two-dial ‘Albert’ and four-dial ‘George’. Custom designs can be made.

GRP Structures GRP structures and fabrications can be manufactured to specific designs and sizes. We have a large range of special moulds, which can be used in numerous ways such as on lift shafts, restaurants, entrances, etc..
