Strongwell (Bristol, Va.) has announced that its DURADEK and DURAGRID pultruded fiberglass grating, including I-4000 & T-1800 which are typically used in the pool and spa market, have been tested and meet UV requirements mandated by the Virginia Graeme Baker Act (VGBA).

Stork Materials Technology, an independent testing facility, tested Strongwell's pultruded grating for tensile strength and impact strength after being subjected to ultraviolet (UV) radiation weathering. The independent testing was performed in accordance with ASTM D638 for tensile testing and ASTM D256 for Izod impact testing. The testing results indicate DURAGRID grating has a K factor of 1.02 for AMSE A112.19.8.a-2008, section 3.2.2.3, which is the testing protocol for grates and grating covering pool drains.

Features of DURADEK and DURAGRID include high strength, impact resistance, corrosion resistance, molded-in color and low electrical and thermal conductivity.

Strongwell makes structural shapes, grating, handrail, structural building panels, decking systems, composite armor, ladder rail and other products.
