Strongwell’s Duradek and Duragrid pultruded fiberglass grating, including I-4000 & T-1800 which are typically used in the pool & spa market, have been tested and meet UV requirements mandated by the Virginia Graeme Baker Act (VGBA).

Stork Materials Technology, an independent testing facility, tested Strongwell’s pultruded grating for tensile strength and impact strength after being subjected to ultraviolet (UV) radiation weathering. The independent testing was performed in accordance with ASTM D638 for tensile testing and ASTM D256 for Izod impact testing.
