Understanding the weight of structural platforms is important, most critically it has a big impact on the cost. It is significantly more challenging to manufacture, handle and physically install heavier materials. The weight also has an impact on the amount of support that is necessary. Maintenance needs can be higher as a result too. For these reasons it is wise to choose lighter products that can still provide the appropriate level of strength and durability.
A much lighter composite
Core6 GRP composites have impressive strength and durability, coming very close to what steel achieves, but importantly it is far lighter, providing the potential for impressive cost savings.
A Core6 structural profile can be as much as 80% lighter than a steel one. This translates to serious weight savings in terms of the supports that need to be in place to provide stability. It can also result in much faster installation and fewer needs for heavy duty plant machinery.
JBP suppliess high quality Core6 GRP structural profiles. These products are used in a wide array of settings where safety is crucial but maintenance can be difficult. For example, they can be used as:
•Platforms in industrial plants
•Walkways in marine and offshore settings
•Access bridges in civil engineering projects
Whether you need C-channels, I-beams, angles or box sections, we can provide them all. We can even fabricate and assemble entire platforms if you need them. Every product will meet your specifications accurately and be ready to install when it arrives on site.
