What is a storm surge grating?

piers docks fiberglassIn areas prone to severe weather, docks and piers often suffer substantial damage from storms. Storm surge grating is a way to combat this problem using fiberglass grating material to construct hurricane-resistant docks and piers.

Storm surge grating is custom made to fit individual piers and docks and the environment they’re in. Grating made to withstand storm surge is designed and installed to meet government regulations and comply with the results of tide and wave studies. It provides the most economical and most durable solution for access to waterways.

When fiberglass grating is used instead of deck boards, the damage following a strong storm, or even a hurricane, is minimized - making clean-up and repair much quicker and easier. 

As a bonus, fiberglass storm surge grating is attractive, durable and great for bare feet!

Usually pliable, malleable or liquid before being cured, thermoset resins are then designed to be molded into their final desired shape. Once hardened and molded into their final shape, these resins cannot be reheated or melted and shaped differently.
