Dura Slab is ideal for new constructions and replacements for duct covers but is also well suited for refurbishment applications to replace old, heavy & cumbersome traditional flooring materials and covers. The characteristics of Dura Slab make it more favourable for duct covers rather than using steel, timber or concrete systems due to its lower weight, anti-slip surface, ease of installation and absence of maintenance.

Gully Covers & Trench Covers

Dura Slab ideal for gully covers & trench covers is tested to B.S. EN124. This European standard applies to gully covers, trench covers and manhole tops for vehicular and pedestrian areas. In order to reach this approval a Dura Slab 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.

Dura Slab is a fibreglass structural flooring system manufactured using a unique construction technique that provides an incredible strength to weight ratio. Dura Slab structural flooring panels are manufactured by the pultruded fibreglass process to provide a composite structural flooring structure that is stiff, strong, light-weight, non-corrosive with an anti-slip walking surface.

Gully Covers

Gully covers are lightweight, high strength, anti slip and easily removed for access. Gully covers can easily be lifted by one to two or four man teams using standard lifting keys.

Dura Slab gully covers are lightweight, high strength composite flooring products which have been engineered for use as gully covers where incredible strength to weight is important.
