GRP Palisade Fence, Ballylumford Power Station
At a Glance
Due to the site being so close to the sea and saltwater splashing onto the existing steel handrail, it had corroded to the extent of falling apart. This led to the handrail failing and caused a major safety concern. As this application was also located within a Power Station, the live conductive nature of the surroundings also had to be taken into consideration.
Referencing the saltwater corrosion concerns, GRP was chosen by the client due to its excellent corrosion resistance properties in a marine environment and long lifespan.
Our GRP Palisade fence offered the customer a solution to the corrosion issues. GRP Palisade Fencing Panels are a non-conductive, non-rust alternative to traditional steel fencing. The chemical-resistant resin means our fencing can be used in the toughest conditions such as oil rigs, chemical plants, rail and coastal applications. As GRP is a non-conductive material, this makes it the perfect application for a power station.
