Fibregrid Provide GRP Access Solution For Chemical Specialist

Fibregrid Composite Engineering was commissioned by a leading chemical manufacturer to design and build a bespoke access platform so operatives can access new chemical dosing tanks at their manufacturing facility.

The tanks contain Phosphorous Trichloride (PCl₃) which generates hydrochloric acid a particularly harmful chemical on contact with water so the whole structure needed to be acid resistant in case of a leak hence the reason why Fibregrid's vinyl ester resin was used to withstand the highly corrosive chemical environment.


Fibregrid provided the client with a bespoke, lightweight, pre-engineered composite GRP access platform. The platform fitted perfectly with no additional modifications required. A removable handrail section was included to allow easy access to the drums.

A spokesperson for the company said "we are delighted with this structure as well as all the work Fibregrid Composite Engineering have provided to site over the last few months".
