Dura Composites is a leading global manufacturer, designer and supplier of fibreglass and composite timber products for the marine and shipping industry, with over 25 years experience in the maritime sector.
We offer high-performance non-corrosive and anti-slip GRP grating, duct covers, fenders, ladders, handrailing and structures which are ideally suited to the harsh weather conditions of Ports, Marinas, Commercial Shipping, Aquaculture, Piers and Promenades. When used as marina, walkway or pontoon flooring, the anti-slip surface is tested to withstand even the wettest, oiliest and iciest conditions, thus ensuring a safe and highly durable walkway that allows access throughout the year. Incredibly, the low slip potential of the surface has been rigorously tested and proven to reduce by a mere 5% after 1.1 million footfalls.
The load capacity is extremely high and also provides excellent impact resistance and exceptional traction on walkways subject to tidal inclines. Our market-leading d2 Dura Grating is available in standard open mesh, mini mesh and micro mesh variants and also with a solid top finish for applications where maximum strength and no light transmittance are required.
For marine and waterside environments that are more tailored to leisure users, we also offer a composite timber decking solution known as Dura Deck® which is manufactured from a combination of recycled plastics and hardwood waste and is an immensely versatile material which combines the traditional appearance of timber with the durability of an engineered composite.
Both product ranges (GRP Dura Grating and Composite Timber Dura Deck®) require no painting or treating over their long lifetime and in many cases are suitable for new build projects, or as a replacement for degraded timber decking where safe anti-slip qualities are required, thanks to their proven ability to withstand the harsh side effects of marine conditions better than traditional materials such as timber or steel.
