Fibreglass Structural Covers for pedestrian and vehicle crossings which can comply with BS EN124 Classifications
Dura Slab heavy duty covers allow easy access, are lightweight, and can be fitted with built-in lifting eyes, complete with anti-slip gritted top walking surface.
High Strength Covers
Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications to replace old, heavy & cumbersome traditional flooring materials. The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for a variety of covers rather than using steel, timber or concrete systems due to its lower weight, anti-slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.
Dura Slab fibreglass covers offer maximum strength with an anti-slip surface & allows easy removal for access and inspection of wiring, pipework etc.
Dura Slab is suitable for high strength applications and has been tested to B.S. EN124. This European standard applies to duct covers and manhole tops for vehicular and pedestrian areas. In order to reach this approval a Dura Slab duct cover panel of 74mm thickness and 1280mm span was subjected to a load equivalent to two thirds of the Class B test load, 83.3kN, and then reduced to zero.
Fibreglass high strength, low weight covers do not require any lifting equipment, are low cost, anti-slip and low maintenance.
Fibreglass structural covers are lightweight, high strength, anti-slip and easily removed for maintenance access. Dura Slab covers can easily be lifted by one, two or four man teams using standard lifting keys. Dura Slab has been engineered for use as structural covers where incredible strength to weight is important.
Fibreglass covers are immensely strong and lightweight. The walking surface is gritted for incredible anti-slip traction.
Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for cable duct covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications to replace old, heavy and cumbersome traditional flooring materials and covers. The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for cable duct covers rather thank using steel., timber or concrete systems due to it’s lower weight, anti slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.

Dura Slab manufacturing process
Dura Slab is 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, gully and duct cover industries.
