Dura Composites is a leading supplier and installer of bespoke first-class safety, riser solutions on new builds or refurbishments.
Our highly experienced team offer a tried and tested one-stop-shop for Riser safety – including, design, supply & install.
Riser voids (the openings which are left to accommodate mechanical and electrical services on multiple floors of a building) can provide real safety challenges for contractors.
In 2017-2018 fatal injuries to workers due to falls from height increased by 26% since the previous year and accounted for the main cause of fatalities for workers in Great Britain. Data source RIDDOR (Health and Safety Executive).
Something as innocuous as a tape measure dropped from height in a riser shaft can tragically kill, and statistics show that a 500g object dropped from 15m has the same impact energy as a 75kg washing machine.
Dura Composites offers a comprehensive Riser supply and install service utilising our purpose-designed Dura Riser GRP Grating products and galvanised steel framework to help reduce the risk of death or serious injury on construction sites.
Our Dura Riser solutions can eliminate the need for scaffold handrails, netting or timber shuttering and can be ‘Post-fixed’ or ‘Cast-in’ to concrete as a fully structural solution.
We offer GRP grating that meets the requirements of the 20mm Ball Falling Test, and versions with a completely solid surface for maximum debris defence.
