Street & Park Infrastructures
Our viewing platforms and shelters have composite structures uniquely suited to withstand the harshest environments while providing a low maintenance, long-life asset to the local community. Our materials are perfect for coastal, marine, and environmentally sensitive areas. From tidal flood plains and protected mangrove swamps to alkaline desert and corrosive mining facilities, our structures have proven time and again their unique durability and strength. Possessing a full in-house design and certification team, we will work hand in hand with you to ensure a robust, aesthetically pleasing asset that will provide decades of service.
Structural design of Polymer Composites - Eurocomp design code and handbook design of composite structures differs slightly from that of traditional materials, in that the 'serviceability' criteria generally dominates the design process. Typically, traditional materials are designed primarily for strength, and serviceability checks are performed. Due to the low Modulus of Elasticity of composite products (as compared to steel for example) structures are designed to meet the stiffness criteria, and as a result contain large strength reserves.
