Fibreglass Marina Walkway Grating

Next-generation fibreglass anti-slip grating for leisure and commercial marine environments.

Commercial ports, RNLI stations, working harbours and many marinas require structural grating walkways with heavy duty capabilities that are designed to resist greater forces than standard leisure pontoon equipment.

Safe and level walkways should be provided in all areas where pedestrian traffic such as ship crew members, pilots, passengers and contractors have cause to walk, as well as in areas where trolleys and servicing equipment may regularly need to travel. Dura Grating’s anti-slip surface is tested to withstand even the wettest, oiliest and iciest conditions, thus ensuring a safe and highly durable walkway that allows access throughout the year.

Dura Grating’s load capacity is extremely high and it also provides excellent impact resistance and exceptional traction on walkways subject to tidal inclines. Dura Grating is manufactured using advanced fibreglass composite technology and features one of the highest degrees of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface. It is available in standard open mesh, mini mesh and micro mesh variants and also with a Solid Top finish for applications where maximum strength is required.

Here’s why pontoon builders, marina owners, contractors and end clients across the globe choose Dura Grating for their marine projects.

Key Benefits of Dura Grating in Marine Environments

Enhanced Safety

Dura Grating features one of the highest degrees of slip resistance ever measured for a walking surface which can help reduce a marina’s insurance premiums and improve its overall asset value. The highly engineered composition is both corrosion and chemically resistant and the lightweight nature of the panels allow for manual handling.

 Saves Time

Dura Grating can be installed rapidly by skilled contractors without the need for specialist equipment. We can separate your delivery into packaged modules which meet the specific phasing needs of your pontoon or jetty construction plan – potentially saving you days of labour!

 Saves Money

Not only is the overall outlay cost usually less than alternative materials, but Dura Grating is also incredibly low maintenance and will never need painting over its long lifecycle, saving valuable labour cost and helping meet your sustainability goals.

Pontoon Decking Case Study | Port of Dover

In 2018, the Port of Dover awarded a major contract to Solent Marine Ltd to design and fit-out Dover’s new marina as part of the flagship Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) development. 22mm Mini Mesh Dura Grating was chosen for the pontoon fingers in what has been described as one of the largest ever GRP pontoon install projects ever undertaken in the UK.

Our Fibreglass Decking Dura Grating

Standard Mesh Dura Grating

  • 25 YEAR WARRANTY
  • ANTI-SLIP SURFACE
  • 4 COLOURS AVAILABLE

Our standard mesh GRP grating features an open hole size of 32mm x 32mm and is most suited for use within commercial marine applications as a walkway or slipway solution to help minimise the risk of slips or falls.

Dura Grating standard mesh is available in Dark Grey, Yellow, Green or Light Grey as standard, and our most popular grating thicknesses are 25mm, 30mm, 38mm and 50mm. The uniform construction of Dura Grating provides excellent bi-directional mechanical properties.

Standard Dura Grating is light, strong and non corrosive and can be supplied with a full range of stainless steel clips, clamps and hold down fixings to suit all situations.


Mini Mesh Dura Grating

  • 25 YEAR WARRANTY
  • ANTI-SLIP SURFACE
  • 5 COLOURS AVAILABLE

Dura Composites Mini Mesh GRP grating has all the benefits of our standard Dura Grating but with a smaller open mesh area.

The smaller openings of our Mini Mesh Dura Grating prevents small objects from falling through, and complies with BS EN14122 Category B and the European 20mm Ball Falling Test requirement.

Mini Mesh Dura Grating is available in Dark Grey, Sand, Light Grey, Green and Teak colours in a variety of thicknesses.


Micro Mesh Dura Grating

  • 25 YEAR WARRANTY
  • ANTI-SLIP SURFACE

Dura Composites Micro Mesh GRP grating features an anti-slip surface with an 10.5mm x 10.5mm open mesh which prevents virtually all objects from falling through.

The smaller open mesh size heightens the aesthetic appeal whilst also making the surface suitable for a wide range of footwear. Micro Mesh Dura Grating has a thickness of 22mm.


Solid Top Dura Grating

  • 25 YEAR WARRANTY
  • ANTI-SLIP SURFACE

Dura Composites Solid Top GRP grating is lightweight with an extremely good anti-slip walking surface, suitable for wheeled trolleys or equipment often used in loading and storage areas.

One of the key benefits of Solid Top grating is the exceptional breaking strength under lateral force. The uni-directional continuous fibreglass reinforcement offers numerous advantages including rigidity, shock resistance, with no permanent deformation after overloading.

These factors provide excellent mechanical strength and safety in marine environments.
