GRP FlowGRiP plank flooring is a pultruded, one piece construction, interlocking tongue
and groove flooring system for large spans and specialist applications. Used where solid
flooring is required for odour control or dropped object protection. FlowGRiPs increased
strength allows clear spans up to 1400mm clear span with 5kN/m2 load.
Available with slots, for drainage, meeting 15mm dropped object specification for
offshore use. FlowGRiP provides excellent impact and loading characteristics and is
fast and easy to install with low maintenance. FlowGRiP flooring conforms to
BS4592 Part4 1992 and BS5395 Part3 1985.
