Clevedon Pier, Somerset

Project Overview

GRP Heavy Duty Structural Profiles & GRP Grating with conventional steel, achieving a well-considered design, supply, and installation of a lightweight accessible floor that precisely met the customer’s specifications.

Affectionately referred to as ‘The Pagoda’ due to its Japanese architectural influences, this Victorian masterpiece is prominently situated at the terminus of the Grade 1 listed Clevedon Pier.

The local council intended to transform this building into a new community room, but the previous timber flooring had degraded and required replacement with a safe and long-lasting alternative. One of the main requirements was for the floor to be lightweight and easily removable for safe access below.

Our company was selected to provide a full turnkey solution, from design to supply and installation, due to our extensive experience in the marine industry. Our Structural Design team created precise designs, technical information, and rigorous testing data to ensure the client’s confidence in our ability to complete the project.

Our lightweight d2 Dura Grating and Dura Profile products offered the perfect solution, providing exceptional safety, performance, and durability, and were easily fitted to the existing steel frame. Our experienced installation team completed the project efficiently, thanks to the flexibility of our GRP Profile that is lightweight and easy to cut and manoeuvre on-site.

Clevedon, a three-time winner of the Pier of the Year award, takes great pride in its Pier. Therefore, safety was paramount for the community space’s flooring, and our non-corrosive grating was the ideal choice. Our Standard Mesh offers anti-slip features and is more durable than traditional materials such as wood or steel in marine and waterside environments.

Our heavily tested d2 GRP Grating and Profile are backed by a 25-year warranty, ensuring the Pier’s future-proofing and enjoyment for generations to come.
