Dura composite walkways now available in Australia and NZ

Dura Composites has announced that its d2 product range of performance-improving composite walkway products is now available in Australia and New Zealand for the first time.

Following the successful deployment of the company’s award-winning Dura Platform train station platform overlay solution at Victoria Street station in NSW in 2018, Dura Composites has continued to innovate, launching a range of patented solutions including d2 Dura Grating – a GRP flooring and walkway product that offers the best performance-to-weight ratio in the industry and is up to 35% lighter than other GRP grating and around 45% lighter than a steel grating equivalent.

Dura Composites is an expert in the design, manufacture and supply of Glass Reinforced Polymer (GRP) products which are widely acknowledged to have major advantages over more conventional material options as they are less energy-intensive in development and have an extremely long lifecycle.

However, not all GRP composites are created equal, and with a strong reputation for innovation, Dura Composites has continued to invest in its design, technology and manufacturing techniques to create a range of solutions known as d2, which redefine what customers should expect from their composite products.

With the d2 range, Dura Composites is able to solve real-world challenges for clients and customers, helping to reduce costs whilst improving safety and performance. In many cases, the safer, stronger, faster and proven d2 products replace more traditionally accepted materials such as steel, wood and concrete and are faster and easier to deploy, reducing time and costs whilst also improving safety and sustainability.

Marking a milestone 25 years in business in 2021, Dura Composites UK also recently announced that it has achieved the internationally recognised ISO 14001 certification, the standard that specifies criterion for an effective environmental management system. Certification to ISO 14001 compliments Dura Composites existing ISO 9001 Quality Management achievement.

Jordan Armstrong, business development lead for Dura Composites Australia Pty said: “We are sending a clear message to all our valued customers in the region that we are taking a leading and proactive approach to quality and environmental management and that we are passionate about ensuring that the lifecycle benefits of our products are widely understood. The innovative weight-reducing designs of d2 help to reduce the carbon impact on the environment, whilst the future-proof fire resistance, anti-corrosion specification and anti-slip gritted surfaces all ensure that our Australian and New Zealand customers will benefit from enhanced safety and accessibility of their structural walkways.”

Thermoplastic coatings and composites

Generally, composites, such as glass fibre and carbon fibre, are popular materials among manufacturers because of their light weight and mechanical properties compared to traditional materials, such as steel and aluminium. Composites can also be designed to take advantage of special coatings that help aid their integration into a product while improving functionality. Patrick Loock, segment business owner for products and applications at composite tubes and profiles manufacturer Exel Composites, discusses how composites manufactured with thermoplastic functional coatings can allow more control of properties such as friction, adhesion, and finish.
