Fire Retardant Composites

Jules Dock Development designed a composite laminate which meets the fire retardant requirements for the building environment. A standard resin for composites is flammable. However, the advantages of composite materials in terms of sustainability, light weight, corrosion resistance and the possibility of complex shaved curves, the possibilities of composite materials for the building environment have been elaborated.

This special designed composite laminate is a unique combination of materials in which a balance has been found in terms of fire resistance, sustainability, structural and maintenance requirements. Extensive research has been carried out  on the requirements for the building environment. In this development process, several tests have been performed in which strength, stiffness and fire resistance have been validated and certified.


Bio-Based Composites

Sustainability is an important aspect for all composite applications. Jules Dock Development has experience using bio-based composite materials, like jute, flax and basalt fibers. Bio-based resins are possible as well, which are fabricated using a high content of natural resources.

Wind Energy

Composite materials are extensively used in the rotor blades of traditional wind turbines, onshore and offshore.  Usually, rotor blades of small wind turbines are manufactured using composite materials. Jules Dock Development has developed and manufactured several small wind turbine concepts in the last few years, for both onshore and offshore applications.


Complex Curved Railings

Due to the freedom of geometry of composite materials, bridge railings can be made in the most complex shapes you like. By orientating the fiber structures in the composite laminate in the dominant loading direction, the weight of the railing can be significantly reduced, which saves installation costs. Composite materials are corrosion resistance, which results in a long lifespan and reduced maintenance intervals and costs.
