Decks

Fiberglass/Plastic

Fiberglass decks are usually flat fiberglass sheets bonded to shallow fiberglass structural shapes. A coarse sand is embedded into the gel coating of the flat sheets to increase roughness.

Prefabricated plastic planks can also be used as decking. Structural properties of the products vary substantially. Determine the maximum allowable span for the required loading.
