What is the iSkimmer?

iskimmerStormwater skimmers are not something that most think of, but it holds a very important job. These are commonly found in retention ponds, and their purpose is to stop contaminants (such as oil, grease, and other floating factors) from getting into our natural bodies of water. As stated earlier, the location of these is commonly in retention ponds, which are usually placed in a large grassy area. Due to the typical maintenance of the land, specifically mowing of the grass, this has caused damage to many skimmers thanks to the tractor mowers used. This has become a constant problem and always causes breakage some way or another, so how can it be fixed? The solution is easy; it’s the iSkimmer.

So what exactly is the iSkimmer?

 It is a structural fiberglass polymer angle that bends and contours with that abuse from the mower, and springing back to its original shape with hardly so much as a couple of scratches. Traditionally skimmers made from fiberglass have had rigid angles, not allowing for any give when it comes to a potential impact. The iSkimmer absorbs the impact and pops itself back to its normal form seconds after collision, time and time again.

This type of skimmer will last for years and years to come, still withstanding blow after blow be it mowers or something else. The most damage it can construe will be purely cosmetic ( a few scratches here and there, a dent or two – maybe). But that type of damage willhave not affecton the durability and flexibility of the iSkimmer.

To know that our natural bodies of water are safe from unwanted additions, thanks to the iSkimmer, is a good feeling. Remember that next time you’re enjoying a warm day out on the water and take the time to see how clear the water is. Faulty, cracked, and broken stormwater skimmers will make our waters murky and unsafe. iSkimmer will keep your summertime fun crystal clear!

The iskimmer gets even smarter.

When you're driving along a highway and notice a large body of water on the sides of the road, they're not just pools of sitting water.  Those retention pond banks serve an essential purpose by collecting stormwater runoff, so it doesn't flood our roads. It also improves the water quality in adjacent rivers, streams, and lakes. But how does it improve that water quality if it's storm runoff? That's all thanks to a smart skimmer installed in these retention ponds.

In Florida, sometimes there’s too much storm to handle during times like hurricane season. There’s so much water everywhere, from lots of rain to storm surges on the coasts. It can be hard to keep up with what’s tagging along in the stormwater running rampant through the streets. This is where corrugated aluminum baffles work themselves in.

Can molded fiberglass grating hold weight?

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

If you’re looking for reliable flooring in an area prone to liquids sometimes covering walkways, molded fiberglass grating could be the ticket! This type of grating is composed of resin and glass fiber that is kept continuously kept wet and interlaced through a mold to create the grating. But can that hold the weight of heavy machinery and a fully staffed crew at the same time?
