Case Study: Starward Distillery FRP Gantry

Starward Distillery Gantry

Starward Distillery is boutique distillery located in inner city Port Melbourne, Victoria, where locally sourced ingredients, (only a day’s drive away) are sourced to produce whisky for a curious, food loving and obsessed generation. As part of an upgrade to their production, Composite Engineering was commissioned to build a showcase FRP gantry including columns, handrails, staircases and walkways.

MaxiSTRUCT FRP beams and columns were chosen for the substructure of the gantry to provide a lightweight, high strength and virtually maintenance free structure. The walkways all feature MaxiGRATE FRP 38mm micromesh grating and the stairs were created from our MaxiSTRUCT structural treads, all of which provide a safe nonslip walking surface for the distillery patrons and staff. The perimeter was made safe by erecting our MaxiRAIL handrail system with stainless steel cable infills.
