Impact resistant skimmer for longer life

iSkimmer

In the past when the grass in swale areas along the highway or retention pond banks was mowed, the tractor mowers occasionally impacted the stormwater skimmers - severely bending aluminum and galvanized steel skimmers and fracturing the mounting angles and corners on the fiberglass skimmers.

All fiberglass skimmers have been produced with rigid fiberglass corner angles & brackets that, when hit by a tractor mower, would crack and break.

So what did we do? After many attempts, we developed a special blended polymer angle that was rigid enough to support our structure while flexible enough to bend and allow the structural fiberglass to return the iSkimmer back to its original configuration over and over.

Interactive - when TURF maintenance contractors drive their heavy-duty tractor and mower deck into the high-tech iSkimmer... the iSkimmer retreats out of the way!

Intelligent - the iSkimmer knows what it is supposed to do, so after the collision, the iSkimmer returns to duty exactly where it was before it was sideswiped.

Impact Resistant - after repeated impacts from all directions, the iSkimmer retains its design parameters and is totally functional. It might look a little scratched, but the high corrosion resistance of all components will ensure its continued use for years on end. Try that with galvanized steel!

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.

Fiberglass skimmers are "theft resistant"

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

In years past, skimmers were made from materials that - due to their recyclable “scrap” value - were attractive to thieves. Over 16 years ago, however, the first Enviro-Glaskimer was installed. Fiberglass skimmers have no residual scrap value, and therefore they are still on the job today, protecting the quality of our water in Florida.
