Other Composite Applications
Advanced composites for industrial applications
The opportunities for using composites exist everywhere and they are often selected for their versatility and low weight, allowing projects to reach performance and/or design levels not achievable with other construction materials.
Gurit’s depth of expertise and experience of working with demanding applications makes us the ideal partner for any general industrial project considering composite construction.
We offer a full range of composite materials for the spectrum of processing technologies, complemented by structural engineering design, materials and panel testing, kitting, flat panel manufacture, tooling fabrication and prototyping.
Industrial sectors benefiting from working with Gurit and composites include:
- Sports Goods
ANDRITZ HYDRO HAMMERFEST HS1000
With a rated capacity of 1MW and a diameter of over 20m the ANDRITZ HYDRO Hammerfest HS1000 is the largest single tidal turbine rotor to be installed to date. The 9m tidal blades were engineered and manufactured using Gurit materials by a team at Gurit UK.
Next-gen aerial fire suppression systems
Helitak is a firefighting specialist, designing and manufacturing rotary aerial firefighting equipment. With well over a decade of research and development, Helitak has developed an efficient, compact, reliable and cost-effective fire tank, constructed with advanced composite materials from Gurit.
Creating a Strong Sustainability Platform
Gurit annually reports on sustainability related topics and performance indicators. The Gurit Sustainability Report has been prepared in accordance with the standards of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), core option.
RECYCLING TEMPERED GLASS PLATES for use in swimming pool filtration systems
