Structural Design

We’ve had a reputation as leaders in innovation for over a quarter of a century, from modest beginnings supplying anti-slip flooring for marinas & pontoons. For us innovation is about developing more effective processes, products, and ideas, and has allowed us to stay focused on our vision of making composites mainstream – showcasing how they can be used to solve real-world challenges for our clients and customers, often above more traditionally accepted materials such as steel, wood and concrete.

We can help support your design services across all phases of the project lifecycle by providing detailed technical specifications for our award-winning product range. We have an extensive library of previous projects which have been successfully installed in a wide range of commercial and residential locations.

Our in-house CAD and Structural Engineering team can be utilised both for stand-alone design and as part of larger integrated design scheme.

Whatever your scenario, you can be confident that we’ll help ensure your project will meet the load performance and specification needed, otherwise we won’t supply it.

If you need structural efficiency gains in your designs we can make it happen using verification and analysis tools such a Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

Our in-house structural engineer can support you with design optimisation and failure analysis to analyse the strength of complex structures and systems, determine individual component behaviour, and accurately predict how sections will react under structural and thermal loads.

Computer Aided Design (CAD)

Our CAD team use a variety of software including Inventor, Solidworks, Revit, 3Ds Max, Autocad and Navisworks to turn your ideas into reality. Working closely with the fabrication team, they can analyse, design and create bespoke fabrications tailored to your needs. Throughout the project they will be on hand to support you as you need them. Using our CAD team eliminates mistakes by highlighting them early in the design phase and addressing them before the project moves to the fabrication stage.

Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)

Our computer-aided engineering services utilise a range of software tools to simulate the effects of different conditions on our composite products and structures using multiple simulated loads and constraints. Our CAE tools are also used to analyse and optimise the designs created within CAD software.

Site Surveys

Our experienced team are available to attend site surveys to assess the detailed requirements of your project and to supplement and verify the site information provided as part of the initial client brief. Initial site surveys for particularly tricky or challenging locations can be supplemented with our 3D laser scanning service to create exact measurements.

3D Laser Scanning

Our 3D laser scanning service uses the latest in area scanning technologies to create an exact 3D replica of your project site or premises. This can then be utilised by either Dura Composites’ in-house designers to recreate your site specific requirements, or passed to your own internal team.
