FIBERGLASS STRUCTURAL PRODUCTS
Since 1982, AIMS has been recognized as the leading supplier, engineer, fabricator and installer of fiberglass structural systems for the offshore oil and gas industry. An ISO 9001:2015 company, AIMS emphasizes QUALITY, SAFETY, and CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. AIMS is capable of taking a project from the initial design engineering to the final installation of the fiberglass structural system. In association with Creative Pultrusions, Inc., AIMS and Delta Composites have published the most comprehensive Fiberglass Structural Design Manual in the industry.
Fiberglass structural systems consist of molded and pultruded fiberglass grating systems, access platforms, ladders, handrail systems, platform ID signs, and many other applications. Almost any structure that can be built in steel can be built with fiberglass by AIMS.
AIMS employs a full staff of engineers and designers to create a finished product designed for the client’s custom application. AIMS is a world leader in engineered fiberglass structural systems and produces the most safe and cost effective fiberglass structures in the industry.
AIMS stringent QUALITY ASSURANCE program requires any structural system sent offshore to be completely assembled onshore and verified for accuracy and completeness. This can save valuable time and money due to the critical nature of offshore work and the difficulty of fixing problems offshore. Since AIMS fabricates and installs its own fiberglass structural systems, quality is assured throughout each phase of the process.
Once offshore, the structural system is de-crated and assembled by crews highly trained in the art of fiberglass structural fabrication. AIMS’ offshore and off-site installation crews provide the flexibility to service what it sells, and ensure the client receives a successful installation.
MOLDED FIBERGLASS GRATING
AIMS is the leading supplier of molded fiberglass gratings to the offshore oil & gas industry. AIMS’ Talon™ System has been developed and patented by AIMS Composites for the purpose of mechanically fixing the fiberglass grating system to the framing members of an offshore platform that are subjected to wave action. This attachment system has been designed to withstand the extreme forces exerted by storm waves, including hurricanes and typhoons.
PULTRUDED FIBERGLASS GRATING
AIMS’ DeltaSpan™ pultruded grating product offers excellent unidirectional strength and corrosion resistance. This product has been developed to meet specific requirements and is particularly suited for highly corrosive environments. It offers extended life and eliminates periodic maintenance and replacement costs making it the preferred alternative to conventional steel gratings.
FIBERGLASS HANDRAIL SYSTEMS
DeltaRail meets your requirements, from small platforms to complex structures, with high-strength, maintenance-free handrails that are ideal for any location.
FIBERGLASS STAIR SOLUTIONS
AIMS' molded fiberglass stair treads are offered in two varieties: the DeltaTread and the DeltaGrate FabTread. DeltaTread stair treads are cut from DeltaTread panels measuring 22-1/4” x 10’-0”. The mesh of the DeltaTread is 1” x 6” with double bearing bars at the 6” intervals so that any stair tread with a length that is a multiple of 6” is always banded.
FIBERGLASS PLATE GRATING
Many applications require a solid flooring for a variety of reasons, such as odor control in a wastewater plant, an offshore drilling mud room, or possibly for safety reasons to prevent small objects from falling through the floor to the level below. For these instances, AIMS has two solutions: DeltaPlate Structural Plate and DeltaGrate Covered Plate Grating.
Our DeltaGrate Grating Legs are used to elevate DeltaGrate High Strength Molded Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer Grating without the need for extensive structural framing support.
FIBERGLASS LADDER SYSTEMS
Designed for easy installation and fabrication, DeltaLadder meets or exceeds OSHA requirements with durable construction and corrosion-resistant materials.
FIBERGLASS WORK PLATFORMS
AIMS Safety Stands provide an ergonomic solution for technicians who are required to stand for extended periods of time. These durable stands are constructed of high-strength fiberglass and are light weight with a slip-resistant top surface. A variety of sizes are available from 18”x24”x2” up to 24”x24”x10” to provide the proper height for workers to perform certain tasks.
One of AIMS’ newest products is its fiberglass mudmat system for offshore jacket structures. Our fiberglass mudmats are 24 times stronger than 1/4” steel plate and 7.5 times stronger than 3/8” steel plate. On average, this benefit eliminates half to two-thirds the steel filler beams necessary to compile a steel system. Furthermore, since the system is non-metallic it does not require cathodic protection.
FIBERGLASS STRUCTURAL FABRICATION
AIMS is a world leader in the fabrication and installation of fiberglass structural systems. Fiberglass structures are much lighter than steel and can easily be manipulated in less space by fewer personnel.
FIBERGLASS STRUCTURAL DESIGN MANUAL
AIMS and Delta Composites, in association with Creative Pultrusions, Inc., have published the most comprehensive Fiberglass Structural Design Manual in the industry.
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.
