GRP access platforms are suitable for most industrial and commercial environments. As well as complying with all key quality standards, our platform and access stairs solutions offer a low maintenance, long service life and are highly cost effective.

GRP platforms are perfectly suited to interior, exterior and harsh environments. Unlike alternative materials such as metal and wood, they are resistant against corrosion from many industrial chemicals. They will provide a safe, maintenance-free structure you can rely on for many years.

Our platforms are commonly incorporated into new build and refurbishment designs alike. These ultra-sturdy 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 and mid rail, kicker toe plate)
  • Wall/floor fixings/supports
