No matter the project type, Weldlok has a grating or flooring solution that’s safe, durable and fit for purpose. Offering stock and custom solutions across mild steel, aluminium, fibreglass and stainless steel the Weldlok team can assist with the correct selection and specification of grating finishes from a wide range of options.
A sturdy grating surface for walking improves safety and comes with increased durability, providing asset owners with lower repair and maintenance costs across the life of the project. One such example has been the use of Weldlok Aluminium and Fibreglass (FRP) Flooring used in combination for coastal walkway applications.
The spectacular backdrop of the NSW coastline presented a challenge in aesthetics and performance. The coastal environment with harsh salt-spray air and complex geotechnical, structural and environmental conditions required a thoughtful and high-performing engineering solution.
The materials selected included Weldlok aluminium and fibreglass products. Highly resistant to harsh weather and pedestrian conditions, these materials also allow light and water to pass through to native vegetation.
The walkway flooring features Weldlok FRP Grating, manufactured through a process of interweaving high-strength fibreglass strands which are then set in a highly chemical and flame-resistant resin. These specific properties make Weldlok FRP Grating ideal for exterior applications such as national park walkways.
Like all Weldlok grating and flooring, the products used for the coastline walkway were designed and manufactured to comply with the requirements of AS1657. The pedestrian-friendly FRP grating flooring is especially slip-resistant and was chosen in a dark grey colour to work in harmony with timber surfaces and the rockscape of the local environment.
