FIBERGLASS STRUCTURAL PRODUCTS:
AIMS Composites offers several fiberglass grating accessories. Our DeltaGrate Grating Legs are used to elevate DeltaGrate High Strength Molded Fiberglass Grating without the need for extensive structural framing support.
Recommended for applications where the elevated flooring is not subjected to wind or other environmental lateral loads. AIMS' grating legs are easy to install and offers a cost effective way to raise the molded fiberglass grating to provide access to meters, gauges, valves, or other items routinely requiring access. Available in single head and double head fittings, and fixed or adjustable height legs, DeltaGrate Grating Legs can raise your flooring from 2” to 60”.
GRATING HOLD-DOWN CLIPS
AIMS offers hold-down clips and clip assemblies for connecting grating panels. These specially designed clips or constructed of 316 stainless steel and provide a secure connection for strong support.
AIMS clips are available in a variety of types for both our DeltaGrate High Strength Molded Fiberglass Grating and our DeltaSpan Pultruded Fiberglass Grating.
Sealing kits are used to seal cut ends of fiberglass reinforced plastic grating and structural materials to prevent corrosion during field cutting and drilling, thus extending the life of the product. Included in the kit are resin sealant, catalyst, and the supplies needed for mixing. The sealant will cover 50 square feet of material.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, BENEFITS AND FEATURES:
AIMS' corrosion resistant fiberglass products are found throughout the world in a variety of applications and industries where safety, low maintenance costs, easy installation, and long service life are essential.
Unlike conventional metals, AIMS products eliminate the rusting and corrosion problems associated with traditional materials. A proven pultrusion process, which combines fiberglass and proprietary resins, creates a durable and safer structure that outlasts metal, and offers a significantly lower life cycle cost. Additionally, special UV inhibitors included in the formulation provide extra protection from the effects of weathering.
EASY TO INSTALL, EASY TO MAINTAIN
There’s no need for heavy equipment or expensive tools since AIMS handrail and ladder systems are less than half the weight of steel. Lighter weight means lower shipping costs and less manpower for installation. With no scraping, sandblasting, or painting required, they are virtually maintenance free.
STRONG AND DURABLE
Pound for pound, fiberglass is stronger than steel. Plus, when designed to certain load-response criteria, FRP material will weigh one-third to one-half of its steel counterpart. Our handrails and ladders get their strength from a high percentage of glass within the laminate, providing durability, high unidirectional strength, and stiffness.
NON-CONDUCTIVE AND FIRE RETARDENT
AIMS handrails and ladders are electronically and thermally nonconductive, and are fire retardant for a safer work environment. Our products meet the self-extinguishing requirements of ASTM E-84, and have a Class 1 flame spread rating of 25 or less. Because our systems are non-metallic, electromagnetic and radio wave frequencies are completely unaffected.
A VARIETY OF COLOR CHOICES
The standard color for our handrails and ladders is Safety Yellow, but any system can be custom ordered to your specific color requirements.Quality Assurance All AIMS handrail and ladder systems are manufactured under a strict quality control program. This program coincides with our mission to offer the highest quality products and services and to continue to excel in research and development for new products.
All orders are carefully secured and shipped on dedicated trucks to ensure on-time, damage-free delivery.
FIBERGLASS PLATFORM ID SIGNS
AIMS fiberglass platform ID signs eliminate the negative features associated with conventional steel ID signs. AIMS’ ID signs are corrosion resistant, long lasting, strong, light weight, and cost competitive.
MOLDED FIBERGLASS GRATING
AIMS and Delta Composites, LLC, are partners in the manufacture of molded fiberglass gratings. AIMS’ Talon™ System has been developed and patented by AIMS International for the purpose of mechanically fixing the fiberglass grating system to the framing members of an offshore platform which are subjected to wave action.
FIBERGLASS LADDER SYSTEM
Designed for easy installation and fabrication, DeltaLadder meets or exceeds OSHA requirements with durable construction and corrosion-resistant materials.
