Dura Composites Installs 4000m2 of Decking in Prestigious London Marina
Dura Composites has supplied and installed 4000m2 of its Dura Grating Mini Mesh fiberglass marina decking to Southwark Council’s South Dock Marina, representing the largest supply of material for any one marina in the UK.
South Dock Marina is London's largest marina prestigiously located on the south bank of the Thames downstream from Tower Bridge and upstream from Greenwich. It opened in 1994 and has been undergoing a redevelopment including the replacement of the existing timber walkways and pontoons. They chose Dura Grating Mini Mesh for its unsurpassed anti-slip properties, 50 year life span, and a growing track record of performance from customers such as the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
Dura Composite’s fibreglass marina decking has a proven gritted, maximum anti slip surface which has one of the highest degrees of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface, especially in wet, oily and icy conditions. The integral gritted non slip surface of the marina decking provides long lasting protection and is the ideal replacement for traditional timber decking materials used in marina developments and constructions. It comes in a variety of mesh sizes and thicknesses. It can also be supplied as solid top decking providing a strong, level surface for foot or wheeled traffic and provides approximately 30% higher stiffness values than open mesh grating.
The Dura Grating Mini Mesh has been installed and the pontoons are open to berth holders. A grand opening of the refurbished marina is planned once contractors have completed final works to services.
