Rune Håvik explains that there are many reasons for this and that he hopes that more contractors will become aware of the FRP-system from Oglaend System.
The car park has "open walls" and is situated close to the North Sea. "Salt and moist and humid air comes in and makes other materials corrode and rust. In addition constant construction work in the area generates a lot of dust that accumulates in water drops on the installed equipment. This dust contains metal particles and so not only corrosion could be a possible threat. Water containing rust that drips on the parked cars is really not something that we want", Rune Håvik points out.
The car park at Stavanger Airport in Norway has been installed with a cable management system made from FRP (fibre glass) and not stainless steel. Corrosion resistance was one of the main reasons for choosing FRP as well as less weight and quick installation.
For the harshest environments
Oglaend System's FRP systems are now being installed in more and more corrosive environments and the combination of corrosion resistant and non-conductive materials is quite unique. In addition FRP products weigh app. 20 percent of equivalent steel products. Also the FRP system is halogen free, fire retardent and impact resistant.
Easy to modify
Mechanical modification of the FRP products can be made with simple hand tools and without hot work. The FRP system also has vibration resistant flange nuts.
