    The Docks, Gloucester, UK

    GRP Stair & Platform Refurbishment

    Project Overview

    In a recent renovation project, aged wooden structures were replaced with Dura Grating Mini Mesh panels, offering a durable and safe alternative for staircases and pontoons. These panels are designed for regular use by boat users, with an anti-slip surface and drainage capability, making them superior to the previous wooden solution.

    Designed for regular use by boat users.

    Gloucester Docks are a historic feature in the city of Gloucester, with a rich history dating back to Roman times. At over 40 miles from the coast, the docks are notably Britain’s most inland port and have undergone huge transformations in the last decade, thanks to multi-million pound investments. Now known as the Gloucester Docks Estate, the area consists of apartments, offices, attractions, bars, restaurants and pedestrianised public areas.

    In this staircase and pontoon refurbishment, a set of former aged wooden structures were replaced with Dura Grating Mini Mesh panels in a light grey colour which offer a durable and safe staircase and pontoon alternative in both wet and dry conditions. Used to access watercraft, the Mini Mesh grating surface is designed for regular use by boat users thanks to its safe anti-slip surface which has been tested to over 1 million footfalls.

    The small hole sizes within the panels allow for drainage and light transmittance and are suitable for all kinds of footwear. Made from hard-wearing Glass Reinforced Polymer, Dura Grating has a design life of up to 60 years and unlike the previous wooden solution will not degrade, rot or absorb water.
