Dura Composites will be showing its new glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) duct covers at METSTRADE 2019.

Walcon Marine has installed Dura Composites’ new GRP duct covers on one of its latest projects after choosing the Essex–based company to assist with a pontoon upgrade.

David Philbrow, production director at Walcon Marine, said that the new duct covers were a real innovation. “There’s nothing else like them in the marketplace and they have proved ideal for this high specification project.”


The duct covers have an anticipated lifespan of 25 years and are low maintenance and anti-slip.

“In terms of safety they have excellent anti-slip properties and tie in perfectly with the other extremely high quality materials which Walcone has employed on this project, giving a clean and professional finish,” said David.

Suitable for both leisure and commercial applications and with no oxidation or corrosion, the covers can be colour-coded to suit specific pontoons using Dura Composites’ bespoke design service.

Dura Composites will be exhibiting at METSTRADE on stand 05.602.
