Libra Plast AS
Libra Plast AS is a preferred manufacturer of bulkhead doors and hatches in the maritime industry.
Libra-Plast AS was founded in 1954 and has been a family-owned limited company since then. In 1957, Libra started working with GRP composite materials (as one of the first companies in Norway). From 1960 until 1980, Libra-Plast made a lot of different products in GRP composite for the maritime industry, for instance they produced more than 200 units of 29 and 33 feet boats.
Libra GRP doors and hatches early became the main products of the company, which have been exported worldwide since the early 1970's. Later they also started to produce metal doors and hatches and can offer today a full range of external doors and hatches for the maritime industry.
Libra got the first Type Approval for Weathertight Doors in Composite Sandwich Construction by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) as early as 1971.
For the last 10 years, Libra has specialized its production and has today the following main products:
- Watertight, Weathertight and Spraytight Doors and Hatches in GRP, Aluminium and Steel
- A-0 and A-60 Weathertight and Watertight Doors and Hatches
- GRP Cabinets and Containers for safety equipment
Libra has been represented in Italy by Stelio Bardi s.r.l. since 1990 and, thanks to the top quality of its product and its very competitive prices, has become one of Italian shipyards' preferred suppliers.
