Project: Segré, Pays de la Loire, France
In the bustling town of Segré, the Verzée flows into the Oudon, where these two great rivers collide.
They saying goes that Segré is the place of renown, two rivers and two mountains, two churches and two bridges. And with those great pairings we find two more working together on this project, with the synonymous partnership between Metalu and Dura Composites.
In a town surrounded by water, connecting communities and providing safe access across it is vital for the local townspeople and lucky tourists. Metalu were chosen with the help of Dura Grating Mini Mesh in Light Grey to create a pedestrian walkway that fit in with it’s local surroundings.
Steeped in history, Segré in the tenth century had a feudal motte, built by the first count of Anjou, that can still be seen today, overlooking the rivers. In Segré, they build things to last, which is why our GRP Grating was chosen with its 60-year design life and 25-year warranty, that far surpasses over materials on the market. It’s non-corrosive, hardwearing and anti-slip properties, the townspeople of Segré will be able to enjoy their river walks for generations to come.
Commenting on the project, Dean Fuller, Marine & Leisure Sales Manager at Dura Composites said;
The great townspeople of Segré deserved a footbridge that would be as resilient as they are, and with the great work from our partners Metalu, we were able to provide them with a stunning, anti-slip footbridge that they will be able to enjoy for a long time.
