Wallis Lake Fisherman's Co-Op Wharf FRP Mini Mesh Grating
Back in October of 2018 Wallis Lake Fisherman’s Co-Op Wharf reopened after 18 months of closure to the public. Along with some new features including an accessibility ramp and fishing platform.
$595,000 was invested in Tuncurry to replace the existing wharf situated in front of the Wallis Lake Fishermen’s Co-Operative.
The existing timber decking was replaced with 38mm MaxiGRATE FRP Mini Mesh grating.
Wooden decking being removed.
FRP Mini Mesh decking being installed.
The wharf is broken up into sections for recreational fishing, dining and unloading for commercial fishermen, with disabled access now available, thanks to the new ramp.
MaxiGRATE FRP Mini Mesh is ideally suited for use in marine walkways as it does not degrade or corrode in the salty marine environment. The grating is also suitable for complete or partial submersion in water.
The grating is topped with a non-slip grit surface for people to walk safely on the grating, even in wet conditions.
FRP Accessibility Ramp
The grating is virtually maintenance free and does not require any painting or recoating. It is UV resistant and will stand up to the harshest of conditions.
MaxiGRATE is also impact resistant and will not permanently deform if stuck by an object, unlike it equivalent in steel. Which when stuck can permanently deform and require remedial works to repair.
The FRP panels are also lightweight, easy to install, and can be field fabricated using standard tools.
