Description

Suitable for industrial and commercial environments, Glass Reinforced Polymer(GRP) access platform systems are designed to comply with all relevant standards such as BS 4592 & Eurocomp and provide a safe, maintenance free and cost-effective alternative to metal or wooden structures.

GRP is perfectly suited to interior, exterior and aggressive environments where industrial chemicals or acid/salt air may quickly degrade other structures. Commonly incorporated into new build & refurbishment designs alike, such structures have shown proven in-service performance for 50+ years.

A typical composite platform construction would comprise the following:

  • Horizontal platform frame
  • Open mesh or covered GRP grating walking surface
  • Protective GRP handrail system (including optional kicker plate)
  • Structural columns
  • Frame and column bracing

Access to the platform may be by means of:

GRP staircase with the following elements:

  • Stringers
  • Open mesh or covered stair treads with bolted fastenings
  • Handrail system (top & mid rail, kicker toe plate)
  • Wall/floor fixings/supports

– or –

GRP ladder with a combination of the following elements:

  • Straight ladder
  • Safety cage
  • Safety gate
  • Landing platform
  • Wall/floor fixings/supports
