Exel Composites is world’s largest manufacturer of composite tubes, including carbon-, hybrid- and glassfibre reinforced options.

Glass fibre tubes are 75 % lighter that steel. Carbon fibre tubes are 80 % lighter than steel.

Exel tubes have very high stiffness and strength ratio compared to steel and aluminium.

Carbon fibre tubes’ unique weight/stiffness ratio and superior strength with high load carrying capacity are fully utilized in new Exel GP-tower to ensure the maximum operational safety.

Special lattice structure design ensures the full frangibility approved by ICAO and FAA.
