CUSTOM STRUCTURAL FABRICATION
 
2
Introduction
Strongwell is both the world's largest producer of pultrudedparts and also the largest fabricator of structures utilizingpultruded components. Strongwell operates three ISO-9001:2000 certified pultrusion manufacturing facilitieswith more than 60 machines and 150 pultrusion lines. TwoStrongwell locations specialize in fiberglass structuralfabrication: Bristol Division (Bristol, Virginia) and ChatfieldDivision (Chatfield, Minnesota).
Fabrication
Fiberglass materials can be used in place of or in conjunctionwith aluminum, steel or stainless steel in fabricated structures.Typical fabrications include beam, column and plate structures,all-fiberglass buildings, platforms and other custom fabricationsinvolving grating and handrail. Specialized OEM type structuressuch as flue gas desulfurization components, computer testingfacilities and water/wastewater treatment structures can also beaccommodated.
Engineering
Strongwell has on staff registered professional engineersexperienced in the design of fiberglass structures and systemsfor custom design requirements. Strongwell's extensiveexperience in fabrication procedures, joint design and stressanalysis of the composite assemblies, combined with theuse of Strongwell's fiberglass products, result in structuresof superior, cost-effective design and structural integrity.Clear, straightforward drawings of structures are provided tothe customer for approval before fabrication begins (unlesscustomer drawings are provided).
Benefits
 
The many inherent benefits of fiberglass can be used to anengineer's advantage in fabricated structures. Today, fiberglassfabricated structures are solving problems in a wide variety ofmarkets and applications. Some of these benefits include:Lightweight — weighs 80% less than steelCorrosion resistant• StrongDimensionally stableLow thermal and electrical conductivityTransparent to EMI/RFI wavesEasy to fabricate and assembleLow in maintenance

Strongwell offers the broadest range of fiberglass structuralmaterials and systems available from a single source. A briefdescription of some of the products typically used in fiberglassfabrications are given below.
EXTREN
®
fiberglass structural shapes and plate
areproduced in three different series and in more than 100 shapesand sizes:Series 500 — An all-purpose line utilizing an isophthalicpolyester resin with a UV inhibitor.Series 525 — An all-purpose line utilizing a fire retardantisophthalic polyester resin with a UV inhibitor.Series 625 — A premium series, both fire retardant andhighly corrosion resistant, utilizing a vinyl ester resin with aUV inhibitor.
High strength fiberglass grating
manufactured byStrongwell includes:
DURADEK
®
 
a standard line of pultruded bar-type gratingwith either "
I
" or "
T
" bar shapes that can be designed andused like traditional metal grates.
DURAGRID
®
custom grating systems offering selectionsof open space, bar shape, cross-rod placement, resin, colorand types of grit surfacing.
DURAGRATE
®
 
— a molded fiberglass grating with one-piecegrating panel construction preferred for many industrialapplications.
FIBREBOLT
®
fiberglass studs and nuts
are ideal forapplications requiring mechanical fasteners that must be strong,non-corrosive and/or nonconductive.
COMPOSOLITE
®
fiberglass building panel system
isan advanced composite building panel system for structuralapplications. Interlocking components make it possible todesign fiberglass structures at significantly lower costs for abroad range of construction applications such as bridge decks andenclosure systems, platforms and walkways, tank covers, andcellular enclosures.

DURASHIELD
®
fiberglass foam core panel
is a tongue-and-groove fiberglass pultruded panel comprised of a pultruded skinover foam core. The panel sizes are: 1" x 12"(R Factor 7) and 3" x 24" (R Factor 21).
DURASHIELD HC
®
 are hollow core panels that can be used in many of the sameapplications as DURASHIELD
®
when projects do not requireinsulation.
Fiberglass decking systems
are designed to provide acontinuous solid surface for applications such as temporaryflooring, covers and decking.
SAFPLANK
®
panels interlockand
SAFDECK
®
panels overlap.
STRONGDEK
TM
is architecturaldecking with hidden fasteners. The systems are intended toreplace wood, aluminum or steel in corrosive environments.
