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!
