Fibregrid Supply FiberSAFE To Peel Harbour Swing Bridge

Fibregrid Composite Engineering supplied 36m2 of 12mm thick FibreSAFE - GRP panels to Isle of Man Council for installation onto the pedestrian walkway of Peel Harbour Swing Bridge.

Peel is the main port on the West coast of the Isle of Man and has undergone radical changes in recent years; the old tidal harbour of yesteryear has been replaced by a fully serviced marina and pedestrian swing bridge.

 

Due to problems with the existing supports of the bridge deck a robust GRP panel was specified because of the stiffness the system provided over the entire span of the bridge deck. FibreSAFE was installed over the pre-existing surface to provide a non-slip safe walking surface for pedestrian foot traffic.

Due to the lightweight properties of the system installation was completed extremely quickly; all parties involved including the general public were extremely impressed with the finished walkway.

Other benefits of the system include:

  • Corrosion resistant
  • Slip resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Fire retardant
  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Electrically & thermally non conductive
  • Impact resistant
  • Low install cost
