Benefits of GRP in quarries
Slips and falls are a serious hazard in quarries. This is especially true when you consider all of the heavy machinery that is used and the potential of falling from great heights. As a result it is vital that surfaces are as slip resistant as possible. This is why glass reinforced plastic is such a good option. Tread covers, walkways and gratings can all help to effectively reduce the risk of slipping and falling.
In quarries the materials used to create the infrastructure need to be robust and long lasting. Steel is a good option but it has a number of drawbacks, primarily the fact that it can struggle with corrosion. A protective coating can improve the resistance, but the dirt and debris can damage it. This can result in flaws where rusting can occur.
GRP is a fantastic Solution,than steel because it is durable and has fantastic corrosion resistance. It is suitable for use in the most challenging environments and will continue to perform to the highest standards.
