British Standard Compliant

Dura Slab can be BS EN 124 approved. This European standard applies to gully tops and manhole tops for vehicular and pedestrian areas. In order to reach this approval, a Dura Slab panel is subjected to a repeated load as per BS EN 124 standards. The test is continued to evaluate absolute failure
level.

Dura Slab Manufacturing Process

Glassfibre rovings and matting reinforcement

 Dura Slab Manufacturing Process

Chemical grade resin dip bath

 Dura Slab Manufacturing Process

Final pultruded resin glassfibre Dura Slab

Pultruded Dura Slab Profiles are manufactured by combining various resins with pure glassfibre reinforcement. They are formed and cured in a continuous process creating a product of extraordinary strength and resilience. The resultant profile offers a combination of benefits and mechanical properties exceeding those of metal. Weighing up to 80% less than steel and concrete, Dura Slab offers equivalent performance for considerably less weight. This results in major weight savings and lower installation and servicing removal costs due to more economical transportation, handling and on site positioning. The high strength to weight ratio has particular relevance for many applications in the structural flooring industries.

British Standard Test Results

The B.S. 4592 test was devised to test and assess the slip resistance of industrial type flooring intended for use in water and wet areas. A co-efficient of friction (CoF) is calculated by determining the mean angle of inclination that an operator can safely maintain when the flooring is subjected to a continuous stream of water.
