Conveyor Belt Access Walkway

 

Fibregrid was commissioned to design, supply and fabricate a GRP Access Walkway, 68m in length and 800mm wide, for a firm in Middlesbrough. The Fibregrid structure was made to replace the existing steel walkway which had severely corroded due to the harsh nature of the working environment, making it unsafe for use.

 

 

 

 

The GRP walkway needed to provide safe access for operatives working at height; essential features required were safety handrails and gritted anti-slip open mesh walkway. The walkway is designed to support 5kn/m2 loading.

 

Fibregrid used ISOFR GRP channel section profiles and FGM38 green moulded grating to manufacture the structure. GRP box section handrail was fitted to run along one side of the Walkway. Factory fabrication took three weeks to complete, with on-site installation by the client taking a further two days - in the coldest weather the region had suffered for some time!

 

 

 

 

“We are delighted with the replacement walkway. We found installation very straightforward and the GRP materials were easy to work with”.
