At Strand Composites, we believe in using domestically sourced goods and services and employ a “Buy American” policy. We believe other companies, even competitors in some cases, feel the same way. Therefore, we produce our own line of FRP flanges and manways with no need to wait 12 weeks for a container to cross an ocean or unneeded concerns over quality.
We stock flanges and blinds in sizes from 1” to 16” in either 50psi or 150psi, using Derakane 411 or 470 resin. We also have manways and covers in 24” or 36”, utilizing the same resin choices in 2, 10 or 20psi.
All fittings are produced in the same ASME accredited, climate-controlled shop and to the same QA/QC standards as the fittings we use in our products.
We can also build custom flanges and manways to your specification or requirements. Inquire today for a price list, volume discounting available.
