Why Your Winery Needs FRP

Posted by Brittany Fossier on Dec 22, 2014 1:54:00 PM

While food and beverage facilities already have their own unique set of regulations when it comes to cleanliness and sanitation, the wine industry has an additional motivator: the purity of their wine. According to Emile Peynaud, “Cleanliness is a basic condition for quality. The whole of enological science would be to no avail if the work itself were done in places that were dirty.” Consistent quality routes from consistency in the beginning of the process.  You cannot have a consistently quality wine if your winery is not always clean. In addition to cleanliness, employees can affect consistency. One of the best way to retain employees is to care for them on the job.

ENC Fencing

Posted by Brittany Fossier on Nov 26, 2014 8:52:00 AM

Innovative uses for fiberglass reinforced plastics sometimes present themselves unexpectedly which was the case with our new Electrically Non-Conductive Fencing product.

As communities grow, the need for larger substations increases.  Traditionally, growing substations would require expanding the fenced-in area. Purchasing more land can be costly, and the availability can be limited. Also, grounding the fence is required for traditional materials which can be very expensive.  Because of these high costs and limitations, substation owners have started searching for an alternative way to fence substations.

Outdoor stairs require tedious maintenance and can be very expensive. There are a variety of different traditional materials to choose from including wood, metal, and concrete to use in stair application.

Hotels, apartment complexes, and various commercial properties struggle with the nature of these materials. Wood rots and splits. Metal becomes slippery and corrodes.  Concrete cracks and crumbles.  Plus, metal and concrete are heavier materials making delivery and installation an expensive, long process.

How YOU could be Benefiting from Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics

It seems like design innovation is everywhere.  Just drive through any city and you are likely to see a new building or a redesigned building with today’s modern flare.  Creativity is once again finding its way into building design, but the visual aspect is not the only way building design is experiencing innovation.

Architects and engineers are even finding ways to innovate through the materials used in the design.  Today’s buildings are becoming increasingly more efficient.  Materials are chosen for both visual appeal and functionality.  Traditional materials such as wood and metal are becoming far less significant in comparison to new materials.
