Composite Benefits

Composites offer several advantages; they are much more environmentally responsible, more effective and resourceful than traditional non-renewable material. Composites are non-magnetic, non-sparking, corrosion resistant, slip resistant, lightweight for reduced freight & install costs, impact resistant, fire-retardant and non-conductive for either heat or electricity. Our FRP Composite is designed to be extremely strong and durable, much stronger than steel. Composite material weighs less than 1/2 of its steel counterpart. Product will not rust like steel or easily dent and deform like aluminum, and requires nominal maintenance compared to other options. Composites are well suited to any and all environments, either inside or out, and are resistant to extreme cold and heat. Our Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Composite Material is constructed using USA-made, top quality pultruded material with a UV-resistant veil to lessen fading of color. Designed for easy fabrication and installation, all of our composite products meet OSHA and ANSI requirements.


The B1 Industrial Maintenance Platform plays a vital role in the aviation industry ensuring the utmost safety for the mechanics. Our B1 Stands are popular because they provide an additional foot of height adjustability, as most B1's in the industry only go up 10'. They may also be used as temporary access stairways for aircraft and industrial arenas. The B1's working height ranges from 6' to to 15'.
