Treadwell ACCESS SYSTEMS – Grating, Handrails & Ladders

The safe access and passage located in the elevated areas, confined spaces or in areas that are exposed to corrosion are considered as one of the biggest challenges faced by industries globally. It was in the early 1990s that Treadwell identified the limitations of the material used in existing structures as well as the multitudes of options and solutions that were continuously offered in the market for new ones, and decided to champion fiberglass reinforced plastics (FRP) due to its flexibility, durability and non-corrosive nature.

Treadwell’s Access Systems are designed and engineered from FRP composites and the primary benefits included encompassed a robust, lightweight, non-conductive as well as non-corrosive solution to face the many challenges industries faced. Because of our exceptionally versatile designs, Treadwell’s EX Series® Handrails, EX Series® Grating and EX Series® Ladders have emerged as ideal options to solve whatever access challenge at hand and in whichever environment. The implementation of our ACCESS SYSTEMS will ensure that our clients enjoy greater asset longevity, lower maintenance costs and remarkably effortless installation.

The advantages of the FRP made structures have been experienced in a multitude of sectors around the world and thus saving departments and organisations significant amounts in install, maintenance and repair budgets. Public infrastructure, mining, oil and gas, marine and industrial processing are just a few of the industries that are currently utilising Treadwell’s FRP ACCESS SYSTEMS to realise their own substantial economic advantage.
