Sandwich Plate System (SPS) Overlay is an established alternative to crop and replace steelwork repairs, with over 200,000 m2 of application completed to date.
Intelligent Engineering (UK) Ltd has developed and commercialised Sandwich Plate System (SPS) Overlay. SPS is approved by regulatory authorities around the world. SPS makes maritime and civil engineering structures (such as ships, offshore platforms, bridges and buildings) stronger, lighter, faster to build, longer lasting, safer, more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient.
|•||SPS is a structural composite material comprising two metal plates bonded with a polyurethane elastomer core|
|•||Polyurethane core is jointly developed with BASF, who supplies all of the core material|
|•||Approved by major regulatory authorities, SPS is used in a wide variety of civil, maritime, and special applications including structural flooring, stadia terraces, bridge decks and the repair of maritime and offshore structures|
|•||SPS is much simpler than stiffened steel plate and much lighter and faster to erect than reinforced concrete|
|•||SPS has a lower carbon footprint and is 100% reusable|
|•||Cost savings and economic benefits|
|•||Simpler, faster fabrication|
|•||Improved designs and in-service performance|
|•||Enhanced protection and safety|
|•||Improved environmental sustainability|
