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)
Frame and column bracing
Access to the platform may be by means of:
GRP staircase with the following elements:
Open mesh or covered stair treads with bolted fastenings
Handrail system (top & mid rail, kicker toe plate)
– or –
GRP ladder with a combination of the following elements:
