Skimmers

Environmental Composites produces standard and custom skimmers in fiberglass, aluminum, and stainless or galvanized steel.

Skimmers

The state of Florida mandates the use of stormwater skimmers in retention pond areas.  The skimmer’s purpose is to prevent oil, grease and floatables from intruding into our pristine rivers, lakes and streams.  The skimmer is mounted directly to the concrete structure or can be free standing and supported by posts that are buried into the ground.  There are a variety of skimmer designs including:

  • Channel Face Mount (CFM) – Mounts to the face of the concrete structure
  • Channel Side Mount (CSM) – Mounts to the sides of the concrete structure
  • 4 Sided – Surrounds the entire concrete structure and is mounted with brackets
  • 3 Sided – Surrounds 3 sides of the concrete structure and is mounted with brackets
  • Internal – Mounts to the inside of a concrete structure
  • Free Standing Post Mount – Is mounted with round or square posts buried a min 3ft in the ground

Environmental Composites, Inc. has developed the first structural fiberglass skimmer and works closely with the precast concrete structure manufacturers and the civil engineering community to design a family of fiberglass skimmer products that meets both the structural demands and the installation needs of the contractors.

These skimmers are produced with a specially blended polymer angle, making them rigid enough to support our structure while providing enough flexibility to bend and return to its shape during periods of collision. Skimmers are corrosion resistant and lightweight, making installation easy.

In response to theft concerns raised by various highway and site contractors, and well as county and municipal governments, Environmental Composites has developed a theft resistant, “disappearing” green, Enviro-Glaskimer™, which has no residual scrap value and is structurally sound and easy to install.

With the line of skimmers provided by Environmental Composites, all of your skimmer maintenance will be problem-free!

What are Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics?

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics are made up of synthetic resins that are thermoset (a process that permanently sets material using heat) and fiberglass. 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.

What is the iSkimmer?

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

Stormwater 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.

Why fiberglass piers and docks are much better than wooden ones

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

Nothing beats a solid, sturdy, barefoot-friendly pier or dock for a relaxing day by the water. As Floridians, we’ve all seen the damage hurricanes and strong storms can do to typical wooden docks, and for many, we’ve paid a huge price. Many victims of Hurricane Irma are still working to repair damage to their piers and docks, months after the hurricane.
