Fibreglass Anti-Slip Grating - Marine Product Range

Dura Composites is a global supplier of fibreglass marina decking and pontoon decking as a replacement for traditional, older pontoon decking or deck materials such as wood and steel grating. Dura Grating is ideal for new marina construction and commercial port or harbour developments as well as for refurbishment or upgrade projects across the marine industry.

We offer a FREE cutting service for all our GRP grating panels so you can receive your pre-cut Dura Grating direct to site for easy installation.

To find out more about the different sizes and thicknesses of each product type and their suitability for specific applications, please see below.

 

Standard Mesh Dura Grating

Dura Grating is a highly engineered structural marine decking system manufactured using advanced fibreglass composite technology.

Our standard mesh grating features an open hole size of 32mm x 32mm and is most suited for use within working harbours and commercial docks, on slipways, piers and in other commercial marine environments to help minimise the risk of slips or falls.

Dura Grating standard mesh is available in Grey, Green or Yellow as standard, and our most popular grating thicknesses for the marine industry are 25mm, 30mm, 38mm and 50mm.

Mini Mesh Dura Grating

Dura Composites’ Mini Mesh grating has all the benefits of our standard Dura Grating but with a smaller 12mm x 12mm open mesh area. The smaller openings of our Mini Mesh Dura Grating prevents small objects from falling through, and complies with BS EN14122 Category B and the European 15mm ball falling test requirement.

The close spacing of the bearing bars means that Mini Mesh Dura Grating facilitates the smooth movement of small-wheeled trolleys, marine servicing equipment and wheelchairs, making it a great marina decking solution for both commercial and leisure environments.

Alternatively, marina deck topping is available to order in a 14mm thickness which has been designed to be fitted on top of “structurally sound” decking materials such as timber, aluminium, concrete and steel, thereby saving installation time. Marina Deck topping will transform existing slippery decking into an exceptionally safe walking surface, vastly improving marina safety standards for berth holders and employees. Suitable for commercial and leisure applications.

As with all our mesh grating, our 14mm Marina Deck “topping” is an extremely tough, durable marina decking material with a lifespan of over 50 years, and has been designed to withstand the rigours of marine environments.

Micro Mesh Dura Grating

Dura Composites Micro Mesh fibreglass grating features an anti-slip surface with an 8mm x 8mm open mesh which prevents virtually all objects from falling through the mesh whilst still allowing full drainage.

The smaller open mesh size heightens the aesthetic appeal whilst also making the surface suitable for a wide range of footwear. Micro Mesh Dura Grating is a popular choice for both commercial and leisure applications across the marine industry.

Solid Top

Solid Top Marina Deck is a great choice for fuelling jetties, pumpout stations, fingers and gangways. Its gritted, anti-slip properties and strong surface offer a suitable platform for foot or wheeled traffic even in wet, icy or oily conditions. It provides approximately 30% higher stiffness values than open mesh grating.

Custom Marina fabrications

If you’re a marina fabricator looking for decking products for marinas, ports, jetties or waterside structures, we can supply a solution to meet your needs.

Our fibreglass grating is an ideal replacement for existing pontoons and floating or fixed jetties, and can be easily specified for new build projects, leisure or commercial applications.

We offer a free cutting service for all our fibreglass marina grating panels so you can receive your pre-cut Dura Grating direct to site for quick and easy installation.

We also have a team of experienced in-house CAD Designers and a Structural Engineer who specialise in maritime and infrastructure project support, so you can be confident you’re choosing the best product for your specific project.

If you’re looking for an installer for a custom project we can also help recommend experienced contractors in your area. Simply submit an enquiry and we’ll be in touch.

Fibreglass Grating fixings & accessories

We have a wide range of fixings and accessories for our fibreglass marina grating to suit a variety of grating and mesh profiles depending on your maritime application and installation requirements.

Our fixing clips can help anchor the grating to the supporting substructure or connect panels together and are suitable for both our open mesh and solid top GRP grating. Our technically trained sales staff can advise you on the best fixings for your project.
