Deck 500

DECK500 is a one-piece profile, 500mm over width x 40mm height, with a tongue and groove joint along the length of the plank that gives a firm, sealable joint between lengths of profile.

DECK500 gives a solid floor with a gritted anti-slip surface. It will span 1.5m at a design load of 5kN/m2 with a deflection limit of L/200 and meets all the requirements of BS 4592-4 Industrial type flooring and stair treads — Part 5: Solid plates in metal and glass reinforced plastics (GRP) — Specification and BS EN ISO 14122 part 2 - Safety of Machinery – Permanent means of access to machinery.

DECK500 meets all the requirements of EN 13706 – Specification of grp profiles – Grade E23 and is manufactured under ISO 9000 registered quality control system.

DECK500 can be used in a number of other applications where its strength, light weight and easy of joining provide important benefits.

Practical examples

  • Top deck covers for cooling towers
  • Baffles in water treatment tanks
  • Stop locks
  • Floor defence barriers—easy to install, no theft value
