GRP Slipways for Marine Installation
A slipway, also known as boat ramp, launch or boat deployer, is a ramp on the shore by which ships or boats can be moved to and from the water. Despite the name, the last thing you want is a slippery slipway; whatever is guiding or pulling the boat – people or a vehicle – they need a firm grip on the ground to avoid falling over or ending up wet.
GRP is impervious to salt and fresh water and remains non-slip even when wet or oily, so makes an ideal surface for a boat ramp. For concrete ramps you may simply need to just add anti-slip flooring sheets to improve the surface quality. If the surface is badly compromised, then mini mesh marine grating might be the better option.
