    Port de Carteret Marina, France

    GRP Pontoon Decking

    Project Overview

    Dura Composites’ European representatives Metalu were chosen to provide a safe and durable access solution for this Marina using d² Dura Grating GRP mesh panels.

    Anti-slip grating for marina gangways.

    Le Port des Isles situated on the serene west coast of the Cotentin overlooking the Jersey coastline, is the ideal place to dock and refuel since the creation of its new marina.

    Dura Composites’ European representatives Metalu were chosen to provide a safe and durable access solution which could have proven tricky given the large embankments which had previously made access an issue.

    Sloping passarelles met their match with d² Dura Grating.

    With this in mind, a new marina was devised by Metalu, using Dura Grating Mini Mesh in Sand, to create large sloping passerelles. Our highly rated anti-slip Grating was chosen for these angled gangways to provide safe access for users. Perfect for hazardous environments, Dura Grating is non-corrosive, and with a 60-year design life, choosing it for this project meant that Port des Isles had a marina that was built to last.

    The smaller holes on Dura Grating Mini Mesh provide safe access to those with small animals, whilst still offering improved light transmittance to support the needs of diverse marine life.
