Chris Tate, Fabrications Commercial Manager at Dura Composites said:
Supporting the workforce at each location required safe height and frequent access to wash down vehicles using high-pressure washers. The steel gantries that had traditionally been used by the client had become incredibly slippery when wet and whilst the salt is highly effective, it has a corrosive effect on the steelwork. This means that the gantry structures have to be regularly inspected and maintained, which has a huge financial impact on site operation companies.
By choosing Dura Composites, our client was able to benefit from low maintenance fully fabricated GRP structures with warm-to-the-touch surfaces, that are non-sparking, non-corrosive, non-conductive and will never need painting, staining or galvanising. When combined with the walking surface and stair treads made from GRP Dura Grating it is the ideal anti-slip solution for hazardous industrial environments.
