Why GRP Interlocking Floors?
This flooring system has generated exciting results in mezzanine design, also for walkways and pedestrian bridge decks. The construction industry is under constant pressure to produce durable structures that are lighter, stronger and quicker to build.
Our GRP Interlocking Flooring system is a one-piece pultruded profile, 40mm deep and 500mm wide over width, with a tongue and groove joint along the length of the panel that gives a firm, sealable joint between lengths of profile. Can be used in a number of other applications where its strength, lightweight and ease of joining provide important benefits, such as Baffles in water treatment tanks, stop locks, floor defence barriers and no theft value.
Meets all the requirements of EN 13706 - Specification of GRP profiles - Grade E23 and is manufactured under ISO 9000 registered quality control system.
