Deflection test

FlexxCon always aims for quality and reliability. In relation to this, FlexxCon decided to have the deflection of FRP grating tested under various loads by an independent party. Element in Breda will carry out these tests in the autumn. As soon as we have the results, we will inform you on this.

Den Bosch Railway

Den Bosch Railway

In May 2014, FlexxCon completed a major project for Heijmans Civiel. For the project, better known as Sporen Den Bosch (Den Bosch Railway), FlexxCon supplied the aesthetic grating for the concrete supports. With the approval of the architectural firm, FlexxCon worked out the engineering and structural details for ‘Den Bosch Railway’ in collaboration with the contractor. Using a 3D model, curved grating was cut to size and installed to measure on site.

Quote from the general foreman: 
‘I thank FlexxCon for the quality they delivered and how well all the materials fitted.
I have rarely seen everything fit so seamlessly together without adjustments to the work having to be made’.
