Using FRP to Hide Equipment in Plain Sight

September 24 2018

One of the largest cellular providers in the U.S. needed to replace a metallic radius screen wall. One issue with this particular cell site is its prominent location in an office building near LAX in West Los Angeles. In addition, the concealed structure possesses a radial curve.

For the unique needs of this project, Porter FRP presented a lightweight fiberglass solution which completely concealed the cellular system while adding architectural flair. The owner of the building requested limited use of heavy machinery so as to minimize disruption to building occupants. The products used were EXTREN 4" x 1/4" tube, 4" x 1/4" angle, and 1/8" plate. All of which are LARR (Los Angeles Research Report) approved.

Porter FRP, located in Perris, California, has been fabricating with pultruded fiberglass and structural composites.

Although Strongwell was not specified on this project, Porter’s previous experience with Strongwell’s quality and customer service made it an easy choice for selection and installation. Within a month, the structure was erected and the overall outcome was up to the mark, making both fabricator and end-user happy.
