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!

Fiberglass Platforms

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Knowing you’re working in a safe and sturdy environment is tremendous peace of mind to anyone. A lot of jobs require particular attention to where employees are at all times to ensure safety, the floor. These types of jobs fall into several industries such as dairy/food processing plants, water/wastewater treatment, chemical plants, and cooling towers, to name a few. We offer one-of-a-kind fiberglass platforms for these industries for use as walkways and catwalks throughout the facility.

Protect the local wildlife by installing manatee grates

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Manatees, Florida’s gentlest giants, are naturally curious animals. Sadly, though, their curiosity often leads them into precarious situations. When manatees travel into waterways containing stormwater treatments or large vessels, they become trapped, injured or killed.

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.
