Case Study - FRP Flat Panels

Taking a look back at some MaxiGRATE FRP Flat panels that were installed at a substation at Holmesglen in East Malvern.

Delivering a clean and long lasting aesthetic. One of the ultimate considerations to installing the FRP panels was their non-conductive properties.

It goes without saying that safety is paramount for all companies and protecting employees and contractors from potentially lethal hazards is a must.

The MaxiGRATE panels prevent personnel from making contact with electrically conductive surfaces under a high voltage electrical fault condition.

The non-conductive (dielectric) properties of MaxiGRATE make it the ideal choice for switch room, control rooms etc.

The FRP flat panels can easily be cut down to any size and shape using standard tools. Further increasing their versatility
