Plastic planters, or GRP (glass reinforced plastic), are a durable and hard-wearing solution for planters in public outdoor spaces.
They are a versatile planter that appeals to every step of the specification process. Architects and design professionals appreciate the aesthetic qualities as they are available in a range of colours, textures, and shapes, which can be made bespoke to a project’s requirements.
Main contractors benefit from a material that is durable and long lasting, ensuring their client benefits from planters that will stand the test of time. And sub-contractors benefit from a cost-effective planter solution that is lightweight therefore easy to transport around site.
If you are specifying planters in an urban space or wanting to create a visual impact with plants and foliage in a more rural setting, grp planters are a great way to enhance a local area.
Here at Bailey Streetscene, we understand various street furniture products are considered towards the end of the specification process. This is common for how planters are selected for an area.
However, we work with architects and contractors to ensure planters are given much more consideration into early design plans, helping them to make maximum visual and performance impact for a project.
But with a wide variety of shapes, styles, and finishes, how do you choose and install the right plastic planter for your project?
The aesthetic appeal of plastic planters
Architects, main contractors, and sub-contractors benefit from GRP planters, particularly with their visual appeal.
Due to the flexibility and versatility of GRP, you are able to design planters in an almost limitless array of shapes and styles. And because of the customisable properties of the material, you are able to specify in a range of textures and colours.
Our range of GRP planters are available in any standard RAL colour (with a matt, satin or gloss finish), as well as concrete, granite and corten effect.
They are available in a diverse array of shapes. The Bingham GRP Planter is a long elegant styled trough with curved ends, bringing style and elegance to an outdoor space.
The Arc Trough GRP Planter is a modular planter that when multiples are placed together they create a 4 metre circle. It is available in a range of heights which create depth and interest to a planter setup.
Finally, the Derwent GRP Planter is a simple circular planter that is small in size but creates a big impact on its local area.
Functional benefits of GRP planters
GRP offers an impressive strength-to-weight ratio, making it strong yet lightweight. This can be particularly beneficial in for sub-contractors moving them to and from, as well as around a site.
Plastic planters also offer longevity, giving main contractors and sub-contractors confidence their clients will benefit from planters that will stand the test of time. GRP’s resistance to weathering and environmental factors ensures a long lifespan, reducing the need for replacement or maintenance.
Also, unlike metals, GRP doesn't rust or corrode, making it suitable for environments where chemicals or saltwater are present.
Lower maintenance costs are also another functional benefit of GRP planters. Due to its durability and resistance to corrosion, GRP requires less maintenance, which can lead to cost savings over time.
Finally, because of the lightweight nature of GRP planters it often makes installation easier and quicker for sub-contractors, reducing labour costs and meaning construction professionals can move on to their next job quicker, saving time and money.
Sustainable benefits of plastic planters
GRP is currently difficult to recycle. The very nature of the interwoven fibres (during the production process) means it is hugely difficult to break them back down again. It is possible to recycle GRP, however very few recycling plants offer the service as it requires such a significant amount of energy to do so.
However, GRP does offer some sustainability benefits. As the production process of GRP is considered more energy efficient than materials such as steel. It also has a life expectancy of around 20 years or more, therefore
