Utah State Gets a Charge Out of Roads with Help from Strongwell

To support the electric vehicles tested at UPEL, a Duragrid HD-4000 composite grating from Strongwell is used. This grating is of a much higher quality than other composite gratings you would find and was chosen because it doesn't interfere with magnetic waves. This gives both maximum efficiency and strength to make an ideal roadway.
