Using GRP technology to provide a durable highly slip-resistant solution
Dura Composites has utilised its expertise in composite technology to produce a world first – a highly anti-slip Duct Cover solution for Marinas made from high-performance Glass Reinforced Polymer (also known as GRP or fibreglass). GRP is fast becoming the material of choice in demanding marine environments, thanks to its incredible strength, lightness, ease of installation and excellent resistance to corrosion.
Dura Duct Covers are lightweight and allow for easy access and maintenance to be carried out to the cabling and equipment which runs through the service ducts which are commonly provided on both sides of marina walkways and pontoons. Whilst duct covers have traditionally been made from anodised aluminium, these have a tendency to become very slippery when wet and are prone to theft, tarnishing and oxidisation – particularly in climates where extremes of temperature are common.
By contrast, GRP Dura Duct Covers have superior anti-slip properties are non conductive and have an excellent lifespan, making them cost-effective and environmentally sustainable.
