NEPEAN Building & Infrastructure is Australia’s only specialist manufacturer of the famous Weldlok® Brand of grating & handrail products, a proprietary Brand which has been in production since the 1950’s.
For over 55 years Weldlok® has remained a trusted name across Australia serving the industrial, civil and fabrication industries. Weldlok® grating and handrail systems are both available in FRP fibreglass.
Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass grating and handrail systems are lightweight, non sparking, non-toxic and provide a great cost performance compared to other materials whilst resisting against chemicals, UV light, fire and high pedestrian impact.
Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass grating is used extensively in many different applications including pedestrian walkways, decorative drainage and screening applications. It is particularly suited to high-pedestrian zones and marine environments and is often used for access platforms and tourist walkways.
Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass grating provides: Chemical resistance – High resin content provides resistance to a wide range of chemicals. Anti-slip surface – The coarse quartz grit finish where applied to the walking surface, provides excellent anti- slip performance.
Fire resistance – Flame retardants are added to the resins to improve the fire resistance. Resistant to ultra violet radiation – UV inhibitors are incorporated into the resin to reduce the effects of ultraviolet radiation. However, some loss of colour will occur on long exposure.High impact resistance – FRP grating resists the effects of high impact loading which may superficially damage the surface but does not allow penetration.
Lightweight panels – The lightweight nature of FRP grating allows for ease of handling compared with other materials.
Non sparking – FRP grating with plain and concave upper surfaces will not cause sparking when impacted by metallic objects.
Cost performance – Compared to other materials, the use of FRP grating results in a long life product with low installation costs.
Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass Handrail systems, in combination with Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass walkway grating and stair treads, provides the ultimate in corrosion resistance for aggressive environments which are exposed to the elements. Weldlok® FRP Fibreglass Handrail Systems offer a superior solution compared with conventional FRP Handrail Systems.
