Leisure Applications

Marinas

Dura Grating 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 anti 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 is also algae resistant and low maintenance, making it not only one of the safest, but also one of the most cost effective marina walking surfaces on the market.

Piers

Constructing a high quality leisure Pier requires a proven walkway material with superb anti-slip properties. Fibreglass Dura Grating is suitable for areas with a high foot fall, and can be used as part of new-build pier developments as well as pier refurbishment projects. Although traditionally hardwoods such as balau have been used in pier construction projects, over time algae can form on the decking surface, causing it to become slippery and unsafe for pedestrian use.

Dura Grating is made from high-strength but lightweight anti-slip GRP which is unaffected by a wide range of chemicals and by salt water which can cause degradation to wood. Dura Grating also has an expected lifespan of 50 years, making it ideal for pier projects.

Pontoons

If you are planning or refurbishing pontoons or flexible floating systems for the leisure industry and are looking for an alternative to traditional hardwood decking, then fibreglass Dura Grating could be just what you need.

Dura Grating is an extremely durable decking material with a life span of over 50 years which has been designed to withstand the rigours of marine environments. Dura Grating will transform existing slippery wooden marina decking into an exceptionally safe walking surface, vastly improving marina safety standards for berth holders and employees.

Made from Glass Reinforced Plastic sometimes known as GRP or FRP, Dura Composites’ marina decking can be specified for new or replacement projects where safe anti slip qualities are required for walking surfaces in exposed areas over water.

Walkways

Dura Composites has been a supplier to the marine industry for over 20 years and specialises in the provision of structural glass-reinforced plastic Dura Grating walkways.

Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) is a composite material commonly known as fibreglass which offers a practical low-maintenance and long-lasting alternative to steel and wood in corrosive marine and freshwater environments.

Dura Grating is a superb anti-slip surface material for marina walkways which can be quickly and easily installed and can be cut on site using standard tools.

Jetties

Dura Composites supplies fibreglass grating for application on jetties, access brows and mooring facilities. Dura Grating is high-strength, weatherproof and low-maintenance and boasts an excellent lifecycle cost.

Whilst other jetty surface materials such as wood can rot and become slippery over time, Dura Grating has Angular Quartz grit integrally bonded to the top surface, which produces an extremely long lasting hardwearing finish with phenomenal anti-slip properties.

Dura Grating for marine environments is available in standard mesh, mini-mesh, micro-mesh and solid top varieties in a range of colours to suit every need.

Please note that colours shown are representative only; actual colours may vary slightly. Whilst Marina Grating is relatively colour stable, there will likely be some initial colour lightening as the product weathers, which typically occurs in the first 3 months.

Our manufacturing process results in a high level of colour consistency although some variation in colour may be apparent across grating from different production batches.
