DURADEK® & DURAGRID® PULTRUDED GRATING


DURADEK® & DURAGRID® PULTRUDED GRATING

Manufactured from corrosion resistant, advanced composites supplied by Strongwell, the world’s largest pultrusion company, and recognized leader in the pultrusion industry.

A high performance open mesh grating for medium to heavy duty use. DURADEK® & DURAGRID® Pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) grating systems from Pipex px® are designed for frequently used pedestrian areas and larger loads, including vehicle traffic.  Much stronger than moulded grating by design, pultruded gratings can carry higher loads with significantly less deflection.

Pipex px® DURADEK® & DURAGRID® FRP pultruded gratings are designed to withstand harsh corrosive environments which make them ideal to replace aluminium or steel gratings. They are lightweight, typically 1/3 the weight of steel grating equivalent, yet extremely robust and impact resistant.

Meets BS 4592 Parts  0, 4 and 6
