GRP Composite Bathroom Pods

GRP bathroom pods are specified for projects where robustness, longevity and ease of maintenance are the primary considerations. These pods are widely used in the student accommodation, affordable housing, military, healthcare and hotel sectors.

GRP pods are proven to reduce the operating costs for serviced apartment schemes by at least 90 per cent compared to in-situ built bathrooms.

The capital costs of GRP pods can be up to 20 per cent less than steel-framed pod solutions, helping developers and apartment operators to meet their budget requirements as well as reduce maintenance costs.

Design Features

  • A panelised construction – unique in the UK – creates vertical walls and 90° corners. This feature allows easier integration and the use of standard door sets without further work on site. It also improves aesthetics by avoiding tapered walls which you have with pods created from single GRP moulds
  • This type of construction allows a realistic tile-effect finish or recesses to be incorporated into the design of the bathrooms
  • A waterproof bunded base
  • Vinyl flooring can be laid edge-to-edge for a higher quality finish
  • Cabinet carcases can be post-formed as part of the GRP pod, ready for the addition of door fronts
  • Offsite Solutions’ GRP pods use only premium quality, marine grade and WRAS-approved resins and gelcoats in the manufacture of the GRP composite panels
  • The wall and ceiling panels contain a honeycomb polypropylene core which significantly improves rigidity, is fully waterproof and not susceptible to delamination
  • The pod exterior is fitted with horizontal strengthening battens and adjustable lightweight steel rails to facilitate the fixing of dry lining.


  • Student accommodation
  • Acute hospitals
  • Secure mental health units
  • Hotels
  • Military accommodation
  • New build schemes
  • Conversions from commercial to residential.


  • A robust, easy-to-clean and low maintenance bathroom solution
  • Lower capital cost than steel-framed bathroom pods
  • Manufactured offsite in a controlled factory environment for consistently high quality
  • Shorter programme times
  • Reduced time on site
  • Bathroom construction is reduced from up to seven different trades to a single supplier for easier procurement and site management
  • Greater certainty of delivery on time and on budget
  • Stringent quality control and factory testing before the pods are delivered to site
  • The reassurance of a 50-year warranty package (see terms and conditions).

Expanded Range of Tile-effect Finishes for GRP Pods

The design options available our GRP composite pods now extends to five tile-effect finishes. This widens the scope of factory-finished GRP shower rooms and bathrooms for the private rental sector, which can now feature up to two of the following finishes:

  • Mosaic
  • Square
  • Larger format landscape or vertical
  • Brick-bond metro tiles.

These tile-effect finishes are all integral to the pod carcase and so avoid the need for grout and tiles in the wet areas.

Design Options

  • An extensive library of standardised GRP pod designs is available to save time and cost by using the repetition of offsite manufacture
  • Bespoke GRP pods can be designed and manufactured but tooling costs will apply so this solution is more suited to larger-scale projects
  • GRP pods can be supplied in a demountable configuration for projects with restricted access, such as refurbishment and conversion schemes
  • A wide range of moulds to suit most applications
  • The pods can be supplied floorless to minimise floor-build up at each level - ideal for multi-storey schemes
  • A choice of wall finishes including tile effect, matt or gloss
  • Pre-wired electrics to reduce work on site
  • Thermostatic shower valves and temperature-controlled basin taps
  • Low energy LED downlights or under-cabinet LED lighting
  • Anti-ligature fixtures and fittings for mental health facilities
  • An unrivalled choice of vanity and wall-mounted cabinets to meet specific project requirements.
