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!

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.
