Dura Composites

Dura Composites was established in 1996 when the company first began selling fibreglass grating for use as anti-slip walkways in the Marine and Industrial sectors. Over the past 20 years their product range has expanded to include Glass Reinforced Plastic Trench Covers, Profiles, Handrail, Stair Treads and the market-leading Dura Deck and Dura Cladding made from low-maintenance Composite Timber.

The company’s mission is to supply pioneering composite product solutions that inspire new ideas and promote safety, durability and longevity – recent success winning them the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade for 2017.

The team have extensive knowledge and practical experience of fibreglass reinforced plastic, timber composites and other related emerging materials. All products offer customers a low life cycle cost thanks to long life expectancy and low maintenance requirements.

Dura Composites sells its industrial, construction, marine and rail products directly to a wide variety of customers, from global contractors to train operating companies. They also have a well-established global distribution network in Europe, the Middle East, North America and Africa.

With products that clearly have traction in a wide range of export markets, we look forward to helping Dura to gain high level facilitative access in destinations as diverse as Cyprus, South Africa, India, Malaysia and Singapore.
