29. Feb DURAGRID® Phenolic Grating meets new standard
Meets all the requirements of the new ASTM F3059 standard
We are excited that Strongwell DURAGRID® Phenolic grating and stair treads has passed all the tests of ASTM F3059 and is now waiting for US Coast Guard approval. DURAGRID® Phenolic is the first FRP grating to pass all the requirements of the new ASTM F3059 standard for Level 2 areas.
This new standard is an enhancement to the existing worldwide standards for fiberglass gratings (USCG PFM 2-98, DNV 471.53, etc.).
Significant changes include:
• Substantial changes to Fire Integrity criteria
• Testing for durability issues not previously addressed
Full details will be published as soon as the formalities are in place.
If there are any questions regarding the above, please contact Kjetil Jacobsen.
