Chemainus and Crofton Waste Water Treatment Project
Fiberman Excels at FRP for WWTP Project Support
The district of North Cowichan on Vancouver Island issued a tender for upgrades to two biosolids facilities in their district.
Chemainus and Crofton were to receive these upgrades. Southwell submitted a competitive quote for FRP railing, stair treads and decking to D. Robinson Contracting who won the bid to be the general contractor on this project. Southwell assisted D. Robinson Contracting by working through changes in equipment and dimensions from the original drawings to complete this project.
A Strategy for Easy Installation
The lightweight, side-mounted square-tube handrails used for the platforms and walkways were shipped preassembled for easy installation.
Fire Retardant FRP
The FRP resin for the project was primarily premium grade flame retardant polyester with UV inhibitors for the ladders, stair systems, and structural shapes.
Planning for Exposure to Corrosives
2” deep heavy-duty vinyl ester molded grating was used for the trenches for additional corrosion resistance, a key consideration when specifying FRP for WWTP .
Applications for FRP Grating and Structures in Harsh Environments
Fibreglass structures are excellent for harsh environments subject to chemical exposure, such as outdoor walkways on drilling platforms, in WWTP water treatment plants, in livestock facilities and anywhere you require secure and durable walking surfaces. These structures will consistently outperform rust-prone steel structures where moisture is present.

FRP Grating and Structures and Radio Frequency Transparency
In today’s connected world, we depend on cellular telephone signals, Wi-Fi networks and over the air radio and television signals. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are essential to on-site work environments. Steel structures significantly disrupt these signals. FRP Grating and Structures are an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
