Fiberglass Grating & Handrail Safe Choice for Offshore Living Quarters Platform
PEMEX, Mexico’s state-owned petroleum company, recently selected Strongwell’s fiberglass grating and handrail for the company’s new offshore living quarters platform, Cayo Arcas. Major factors for PEMEX’s selection of fiberglass involved safety, corrosion resistance, weight and difficulty of installation.
Strongwell’s two inch, square, SAFRAIL™ industrial handrail and DURADEK® fiberglass grating were the products of choice. SAFRAIL™ and DURADEK® are ideal replacements for steel or aluminum in corrosive environments or anywhere frequent grating and handrail maintenance costs are unacceptable. SAFRAIL™ handrail is standard in safety yellow, while the DURADEK® grating was painted to match. DURADEK® I-6000 was installed in the stairwells, while DURADEK® I-4000 covered the perimeter walkways. Both gratings were one and one half inch deep.
