Delta Composite Structures, LLC (Delta) is a leading supplier of fiberglass reinforced plastics. Products include molded and pultruded grating, handrail systems, platforms, ladders, structural members, and custom products for numerous industries. Delta’s in-house engineering, drafting, estimating, and customer service teams ensure a solution to any fiberglass structural challenge.
▪ Delta fiberglass products offer a superb chemical resistance to a variety of acids and caustics. Our products are offered in an array of corrosion resistant resins for any environment and will not decay like wood or rust like metal.
▪ The weight savings of fiberglass over steel is significant. For example, our DeltaGrate Molded Grating weighs 1/3 the weight of steel grating, and our DeltaSpan Pultruded Grating provides weight savings of 50% - 75%. Lighter weight results in easier installations and lower installation costs.
▪ Our manufacturing process uses a proprietary method that enables a higher percentage of glass rovings, giving the product more stiffness with a very High Strength Compression to weight ratio, while also providing much more impact resistance than steel.
Spring, Texas ̶ Delta Composite Structures, LLC (Delta) announced the acquisition of Oxlite. Delta is a leader in fiberglass component manufacturing, and Oxlite is a premier manufacturer of aluminum loading ramps.
Ginger Schouest, former CEO of Oxlite, will remain involved as Vice President of Business Development. Schouest said Oxlite customers can expect more in the way of engineering, technology, and innovation regarding new products, while still being able to rely on the Oxlite standard of quality.
Delta’s products are providing solutions to industries and municipalities where corrosion resistance, weight reduction, maintenance reduction, ease of installation, safety, ergonomics, and long service life are of paramount importance. The following are examples of industries and applications of our products:
As wellhead access platforms around the wells & vessels, stair towers, grating systems, electrical cable trays and mudmats.
As walkways and platforms around vessels and equipment, stair towers, and trench grating.
Access walkways to towers and de-misters
As walkways & catwalks in and around their waste water plants, including bleaching and washing areas.
As platforms in the processing areas, catwalks, stair towers, and storage areas.
As additional storage areas and mezzanines
As grating systems and platforms in and around the wash-down areas, access platforms, and storage areas.
For waterworks and catwalks in and around clarifiers, settling basins, and platforms used as storage areas.
Facilities as trench grating in and around pools, structural systems for the flowing streams.
Delta engineering and drafting capabilities are unsurpassed in the structural fiberglass industry. We have developed a 3-dimensional, structural finite-element analysis computer design program, incorporating the industry-accepted fiberglass allowable stress design formulas. Delta's structural engineers can perform 3-D structural analysis of any fiberglass structure, steel structure, or concrete structure. This structural design program performs stress and deflection calculations, plots of deflections, forces, stresses, reactions, etc., as well as resizing over-stressed fiberglass members. Delta is committed to producing the most optimum structural design for all of its engineered systems.
Delta Fiberglass products offer essential benefits in providing a safe work environment, some of which include the lightweight factor that reduces the risk of strain or injury during installation, while the slip resistance feature helps to prevent falls.
Lighter weight results in less shipping costs and less manpower. In addition, durability, chemical resistance, and reduced maintenance are just some of the factors that will provide savings through the long-life of Delta fiberglass products.
With resin and pigment blended throughout our fiberglass products, you will never need to coat or paint the product. Coupled with our corrosion resistant attachment system, Delta provides maintenance-free walkway systems.
