Crimond manufactures Grids with a variety of bar spacings especially to the DFO Canada Regulations. We also supply Rectangular Grids and Oval Grids to customer requirements.
We have been in the Grid development from the time it was imported from Norway in the 1980's. We took part in the initial Grid experiments in several Canadian Provinces.
We also experimented with Prototype Offshore Grids and their development in the offshore fleet
