US Coast Guard approves DURAGRID® Phenolic Grating


US Coast Guard approves DURAGRID® Phenolic Grating

Duragrid® phenolic grating meets all the requirements of the new ASTM F3059 standard for Fibre-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Gratings Used in Marine Construction and Shipbuilding.

We are excited that Strongwell DURAGRID® Phenolic grating and stair treads has passed all the tests of ASTM F3059 and has received US Coast Guard approval.

DURAGRID® Phenolic is the first FRP grating to pass all the requirements of the new ASTM F3059 standard for Level 2 areas.

This new standard is an enhancement to the existing worldwide standards for fibreglass gratings (USCG PFM 2-98, DNV 471.53, etc.).

Significant changes include:

• Substantial changes to Fire Integrity criteria

• Testing for durability issues not previously addressed
