Leading supplier of GRP products for the marine and shipping industry, Dura Composites, is introducing a new 30mm Mini Mesh product to its d2 GRP grating range. The product will be available to purchase in early 2024, but businesses can already register their interest and request advance samples via the Dura Composites website or from the Marine Team.
Available in popular and efficient panel sizes of 3007x1027 and 4027x1267mm, the 30mm Mini Mesh range comes in Green, Grey, Dark Grey and Sand to suit a wide range of environments. As with the entire Mini Mesh range, the 13mm open hole size meets requirements of the European Ball Fall tests, and it still maintains a 900mm span on 1.5Kn point load at L/100.
d2 Dura Grating is a patented GRP grating series designed, developed and available exclusively from Dura Composites and is known for its safer, stronger, faster and proven attributes. The design has advanced anti-slip properties and is anti-corrosive, making it ideally suited to the harsh conditions of ports, marinas, commercial shipping, aquaculture, piers and promenades. Its composition ensures maximum safety tested to over one million footfalls.
As well as its small hole size, safety features and excellent strength-to-weight ratio, d2 30mm Mini Mesh uses 17.33% less embodied carbon than the 30mm grating available elsewhere in the industry, making it a sustainable choice.
The d2 GRP Mini Mesh range was previously available in sizes of 23mm, 35mm, 45mm and 55mm. A 30mm Mini Mesh product was available as part of the previous grating range several years ago, but has now been design-engineered for maximum performance and efficiency as part of the exclusive d2 product range.
“We’re really pleased to be offering another addition to the d2 Grating Range, to provide maritime businesses with more choice for their projects, meeting the unique requirements of these environments,” stated Dean Fuller, new business manager at Dura Composites. “The 30mm size and span capability is perfect for commercial applications such as walkways with bridges and marine environments where there are commercial vessels. Now available in our newly patented d2 grating format it is stronger, lighter and even easier to handle, as well as offering a significant reduction in carbon.
“When used as marina, walkway or pontoon flooring, the anti-slip surface of our d2 Dura Grating is tested to withstand even the wettest, oiliest and iciest conditions, ensuring a safe and highly durable walkway that allows access throughout the year.”
