Fiberglass Access Platforms Installed Quickly and Efficiently

Drilling Specialties required new access platforms to be located over wastewater recycling tanks. The previous steel structures had corroded beyond safe use due to a chlorine rich environment. Drilling Specialties needed a solution that would produce a minimum of fabrication dust around equipment that needed to remain in service during installation. Strongwell supplier EPSCO International provided a fiberglass solution that would remain corrosion free and would be installed efficiently and cleanly.

EPSCO selected Strongwell’s EXTREN® 8" channel and 6" wide flange beams to support the platforms while DURADEK® I-6000 1-1/2" pultruded grating served as the platform flooring. SAFRAIL industrial fiberglass handrail completed the fiberglass platform.

Drilling Specialties was not only satisfied with the installation, but was surprised at how fast the platforms went up, requiring almost no downtime to the purification system.
