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.
