FRP Decking in Platform and Flooring System

time:2020-9-24

FRP decking is a large-scale FRP section formed by pultrusion process at one time. It can form a continuous closed surface through a unique inter-locking structure. It can be used in various corrosive environments as load-bearing structure in replacement of wood, aluminum and steel.

The FRP decking has a point load test pressure of more than 20 tons, and a uniform load of more than 35 tons. The products are widely used in ships, container floors, floor panels, bridges, dock pier, train and subway platform, etc.

FRP decking has the following superior properties:

  1. Greatly reduce the weight of the deck to increase the cargo capacity and prevent the corrosion of the chemical materials and seawater.
  2. Fatigue resistance: FRP deck has some flexibility, which makes people stand on it feel comfortable.
  3. Corrosion resistance: it is not rusty, mildew-free, no need of paint, and can withstand the corrosion of many gas and liquid media;
  4. Good comprehensive economic benefits: FRP decks have low comprehensive cost and long service life. Generally, they can be used for 20 years without maintenance. Therefore, their comprehensive economic benefits are much better than using carbon steel;
  5. Convenient installation: the use of glass fiber reinforced deck reduces the weight of components, therefore no need of lifting equipment during installation, which is economical and convenient.
  6. Safety: During the installation and use of the FRP deck, no spark will be generated.

OUR MOST POPULAR FRP DECKING INCLUDE:

145 hollow decking and 305 open decking are our most popular decking, here 145 and 305 refers to the width of the decking. Length, color and surface of decking can be customized. The surface of the standard deck is smooth. When used as a walking floor, for the safety of pedestrians and prevent them from slipping, anti-skid treatment can be made on the surface of the deck, such as sand coated or grooves on the surface.

The superior performance of FRP makes it favored by more and more projects and applied to more fields and construction sites.
