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.
