Why choose a Fibreglass Planter

Fibreglass is a widely regarded product, used throughout many industries because of its advantages over rival products such as wood, steel, plastic and Aluminium. It is almost inevitable that you have come into contact with Fibreglass in some product form in your daily life. It has a number of applications because of its durability, whilst also being less-energy intensive in development. 

Fibreglass, also known as glass fibre reinforced plastic, is made of molten glass material passed through a series of fine holes. During the manufacturing process, various types of resins are added to the glass fibre after it has been woven together to provide more strength. Additionally, the resins are also used to facilitate the moulding of fibreglass into various shapes. Fibreglass is used widely to manufacture building materials, swimming pools, tanks, automotive equipment, boats and plant containers.

There are a number of major advantages when choosing fibreglass made plant containers over other materials. These include:

they are considerably less weight than planters made from timber, metal or concrete making them more maneuverable when needed in re-positioning.

Can be used widely in many indoor or outdoor situations and their versatile material means they can be made in any colour, texture or finish.

The durable fibreglass construction makes them strong and handle wear in high traffic areas more than other products (eg. plastic). 

Unlike other plant containers, they do not rust, are resistant to salt air and most chemicals (including most acids) and do not rot like timber.

Fibreglass planters are much easier to clean compared to others.

How our Lifestyle Planters Work
