In our webshop we offer a wide range of accessories for GFRP deckings and planks. All corrosion-free to ensure a long life on the finished solution.
Fiberline’s GRP decking and planks are used for applications like bike paths, pedestrian bridges and floor coverings at walkways where loads and spans are limited. Furthermore, the plank can easily be used as a facade cladding system in areas were high corrosion and chemical resistance is required.
Our planks are also available with anti-skid surface just like our gratings, which are coated in a hard-wearing, anti-slip surface. This surface has no negative impact on the load-bearing capacity of the gratings, which makes them particularly well-suited to industrial purposes.
Fiberline’s GRP decking has a long list of favorable advantages. Our decking systems are made of GRP that do not weather nor deteriorate. They have a long life, even when exposed to the effects of corrosive road salt, wind or weather. There is therefore no or only minimal maintenance required, which naturally also reduces maintenance costs. It's a cost-effective choice over the lifetime of the finished solution.
Our FRP decking also has an unrivalled weight-to-strength ratio, makings them perfect for reducing the weight of the finished solution without compromising on strength on e.g. bridge structures and walkways.
This means that they can be used to create a structure that is just as strong as a similar structure made of steel or concrete but which weighs much less. Another advantage is that this makes it easier and cheaper to transport the finished solution from the assembly site to the installation site, and to install it.
Other advantages of GFRP are:
- Easy to work with
- Electrical insulation
- Thermically insulation
- Minimal maintenance
All our FRP products have a number of international and highly sought-after certifications, among other, within the construction, offshore and railway sectors. This is your guarantee of consistently high quality every time you buy from us and use our products.
In 2018, Fiberline became the first company in the world to display CE marking on its entire range of GRP composite structural profiles. Our fibreglass planks still have the same consistently high quality for which we have always been renowned. CE marking is now also accompanied by a special label to give our customers peace of mind and make it easier to use our planks for construction work.
Fiberline is one of the world’s leading suppliers of intelligent composite profiles made of glass fibre. These profiles have been making a considerable difference to our customers in construction and industry for over 40 years. We have a wide range of profiles that yield well-documented results, so you can order your entire fibreglass solution from us. These products are already waiting for you at our warehouse, so visit our webshop today.
Here you can also order a product sample box of fibreglass profiles. Pick the desired product sample box and add it to your basket, and we'll send you the samples as soon as possible. Please contact us if you need other product samples.
You can certainly achieve strong joints using both fibreglass and steel bolts. However, please note that fibreglass is not nearly as dense as steel, which is why it requires additional protection and immediate load spread in the form of washers. It should be noted that bolts and fasteners should be tightened using a torque wrench at recommended tightnesses. The joints should also be retightened after max. 12 months. Read more about the tightening torque and fibreglass joints in our design manual here.
Joining of fibreglass is very similar to joining steel, however, fibreglass is not nearly as dense as steel. This means that you need to pay particular attention to tightening torque in order to avoid ruptures in the fibres. Additionally, you should use washers on both sides of the profile for additional protection and a stronger joint.
We recommend that you retighten the joints after max. 12 months. Find out more about the tightening torque here.
We recommend that you use bolts, nuts and washers made of stainless steel to ensure their long economical life span together with the long life of the fibreglass solution. Joining of fibreglass is very similar to joining steel, however, fiberglass is not nearly as dense as steel. Therefore, you should use e.g. washers in order to protect the profile and spread the immediate load.
If you are bolting two fibreglass surfaces together, remember to use washers on both sides. Learn more from our video here.
