FibreSTEP fibreglass-reinforced plastic GRP ladder and cage system is designed with ref. to BS5395 part 3. The safety cage is ready for field assembly with pre drilled hoops for fast and easy attachment to the ladder and vertical safety bars.
FibrePH grating is an alternative to maintenance-intensive metallic grating for applications where conventional pultruded grating cannot be used. FibrePH can withstand high temperatures and direct flame while maintaining its structural integrity.
The tanks contain Phosphorous Trichloride (PCl₃) which generates hydrochloric acid a particularly harmful chemical on contact with water so the whole structure needed to be acid resistant in case of a leak hence the reason why Fibregrid's vinyl ester resin was used to withstand the highly corrosive chemical environment.
Fibregrid provided the client with a bespoke, lightweight, pre-engineered composite GRP access platform. The platform fitted perfectly with no additional modifications required. A removable handrail section was included to allow easy access to the drums.
A spokesperson for the company said "we are delighted with this structure as well as all the work Fibregrid Composite Engineering have provided to site over the last few months".
