Strongwell Grating Meets Virginia Graeme Baker Act UV Requirements

December 02 2019

Strongwell supplies DURADEK and DURAGRID FRP grating for recreational water and leisure applications. They are the ideal solution for VGBA-compliant drainage systems, providing years of uninterrupted service as proven by accelerated weathering tests using ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

FRP gratings are routinely used for pool and spa drainage systems due to their outstanding impact and tensile strengths and excellent chemical integrity. They are virtually maintenance-free and will not corrode due to exposure from common pool chemicals (i.e. chlorine) and contaminants. Suction entrapment can occur when swimmers come into contact with compromised drainage systems, where suction forces can exceed 350 pounds (lbs). This can cause parts of the body to become pinned to the drainage inlet, causing injury and – in severe cases – death by drowning. The VGBA aimed to eliminate this critical safety factor by mandating new standards for long-lasting drainage performance in typical swimming pool conditions. FRP is subsequently the ideal material for meeting the highest safety standards in swimming pools and spas.
