Project: Truck Bed Flooring
Client: Bevan Group
Operating out of five sites across the West Midlands, Staffordshire & St. Helens, Bevan Group is a leading British manufacturer of commercial vehicle bodies which employs more than 200 staff.
Bevan Group manufactures more than 60 truck and van bodies each week for some of the biggest names on UK roads and designs and builds vehicles to meet operators’ precise requirements.
In this project, Bevan Group turned to Dura Composites to provide durable anti-slip grating made from Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) for some of the commercial vehicle fleet for a Nationwide plant/tool hire business.
This business required a robust, durable and safe flooring solution.
d2 Dura Grating Mini Mesh in 22mm thickness offered the ideal balance of impact resistance, anti-slip and low maintenance whilst also being as cost-effective alternative to the heavyweight steel grating the company had previously been using, which had become expensive and difficult to source.
The unique d2 Dura Grating design features Dura Composites most advanced anti-slip surface (tested in accordance with BS 7976-2:2002+A1:2013) and is able to meet the challenging demands of the transport and logistics sector.
With an unrivalled performance-to-weight ratio, it is easy to manually handle and install using standard hand tools and can be supplied in a variety of mesh sizes and colours to create safe working environments.
