Our products meet a range of stringent testing criteria.
Our previous projects include flooring panels to support faster seat reconfigurations between events and which comply with the required standards for weight, loading and safety. Our most popular solution for seating areas is our 40mm GRP Dura Slab which is lightweight for easy handling during installation but has a high load bearing strength. Movement to and from seats presents an area of significant risk in stadium environments, however Dura’s GRP flooring has a robust anti-slip surface that returns an ultra-low slip potential test result in all directions, in both wet and dry conditions.
Key tests vary by product type, but for stadium projects can include:
- Fire Testing to BS476 Part 7 Class 1
- Fire Testing to EN13501 Bfl-S1
- Anti-Slip Testing
- Flare Resistance
- Point Load Live Tests
- Pre & Post Flare Test Exposure
- Hot Nut Test to BS4790
- FEA Design Analysis
Testing & Certification
For concourse areas which need to be capable of handling extremely high levels of foot traffic, our pultruded GRP panels come in a range of different thicknesses which can be cut or shaped to accept your preferred substrate and fixing method.
Our in-house capabilities include load testing, simulations, Finite Element Analysis, fabrication services incorporating aluminium edge profiles, and specialised CNC machining services.
