The Importance Of GRP Walkways
The importance of GRP walkways, particularly in public places, should not be underestimated. GRP walkways provide a safe and anti-slip surface for people accessing platforms or walkways.
Engineered Composites are the number 1 GRP supplier for many products. One product we supply is GRP gratings that are lightweight yet extremely durable and strong. For more information, see our dedicated GRP gratings page here.
You can expect to see GRP gratings serving as GRP walkways at railways, at industrial platforms, and on bridges. Wherever there is an increased risk of slips, trips or falls, GRP walkways are paramount.
Creating safe walkways for pedestrians to access is imperative. Whether it’s supplying GRP walkways for local authorities or for private businesses that are seeking to provide safe access for clients and customers, Engineered Composites are here to help.
