DeckSafe's GRP Solutions for the Air Industry

The security requirements that surround a visit to an airport – from small military sites to international travel hubs – mean that any access solution needs to be fast to install and require minimal maintenance to avoid future disruption to the services offered. GRP fabrications are far lighter than steel equivalents and are designed to last for decades so installation is quick and economical and they never need painting.

GRP Walkways

A well-positioned walkway or gantry can provide the most direct route from A to B without the need for navigating obstacles or climbing up and down steps or ladders. From a quick crossing from roof-top to roof-top to extended access for maintenance and cleaning crew, a GRP Walkway normally features QuartzGrip® Anti-Slip Standard or Mini Mesh Grating and GRP handrails with kick plates to prevent tools and equipment from rolling off the edge.

GRP Staircases

Staircase at RAF Lakenheath

Whether you need one or two steps to a doorway or platform, or a multi-storey staircase to reach a roof-top or mezzanine floor, GRP Staircases offer an anti-slip, low-maintenance and low-noise solution.

Ideal for replacing slippery metal or rotten wooden steps, the fibreglass treads, handrailing and structural profiles are non-corrosive and UV stable; they’ll never go rusty, they’ll never fade and they’ll never need painting. What’s more, the structures won’t interfere with radio signals.

Access Platforms

For multi-floor machinery or control panels and maintenance hatches installed in hard-to-reach places, gaining access safely can be a challenge.

GRP Stairs, Gantries and Access Platforms, ranging in size from simple threshold steps to more intricate high-level platforms, can ensure operation and maintenance crews remain safe at all times.
