edges which house the ductile iron gratings. Complying with the requirements of EN 1433, the PP is given its UV resistance by adding just sufficient carbon black as a stabiliser so that the structural strength of the

material is unaffected and a consistent appearance is maintained. The PP is also naturally resistant to de-icing salt.
