What are some of the
benefits of FRP / GRP products?
Some benefits of FRP /
GRP materials include corrosion resistance, slip resistance,
light weight, high strength-to-weight ratio, non-conductive, fire
retardant, electromagnetically transparent, impact resistant,
superior ergonomics and low maintenance.
What are the benefits of Fibergrate moulded
Moluded grating has superior
corrosion resistance; bidirectional strength; high impact
resistance; slip resistance; and advantages in installation,
fabrication and utilization.
What types of engineering load data is available for
Uniform, concentrated point load - moulded grating only, and
concentrated line load tables are available for all our grating
What ergonomic benefits do Fibergrate FRP products
Unlike stiff metals, FRP
provides deflection and resiliency to cushion steps and also reduce
back and leg fatigue.
Why should I seal areas on FRP products that have been cut,
scraped, scuffed or scratched?
Any area tht has been cut, scraped, scuffed or scratched should be
sealed to prevent corrosive chemicals from reaching exposed glass
fibers which maintains corrosion resistance thus extending the life
of the product.
What information is required to make a good resin system
In order for technical
services to properly formulate a specific resin, they must have
information about the application including chemical type, chemical
concentration, temperature, and exposure level of the chemical to
When placing a grating order, what accessories should also
When placing an order also
consider these accessories: hold-down clips to secure grating,
grating legs to elevate grating, E-Z angles for corrosion resistant
ledges, sealing kits to seal cuts and penetrations or saw blades to
What type of grit is used on standard grit topped grating
Chemgrate moulded product
line has as standard, an integral (moulded into the surface of the
panel) quartz grit. Fibergrate moulded products have as standard, a
meniscus surface, but have the option of applying in a secondary
operation a quartz grit.
What makes the standard Fibergrate moulded grating
meniscus top slip-resistant?
The naturally formed concave
bars on Fibergrate moulded grating line produces an aggressive
edging that provides a slip resistant surface.
What features should I consider when choosing FRP
You should consider your
specific application in regards to environment, span, open area,
impact resistance and layout utilization. A helpful grating
selection chart is available on each grating product page.
Why is moulded grating more corrosion resistant than
Pultruded products of the same resin system?
Resin protects the glass
fibers from corrosive chemical and moulded grating has 65% resin
whereas pultruded grating has only 30 - 35% resin. Secondly,
moulded grating is one-piece homogeneous construction whereas
pultruded grating is assembled into panels. The corrosion barrier
of the pultruded shapes are compromised when holes are drilled into
components for panel assembly.
What is the pultrusion process?
The pultrusion process
mechanically draws continuous fiber rovings and mats through a
resin bath and then through a series of forming guides and finally
through a heated die.
Why is pultruded grating stiffer than moulded
Pultruded grating is stiffer
than molded grating because of the higher glass content in
What benefit does pultruded grating have over moulded
Since it is a stiffer
product, pultruded grating can span longer distances for any given
What type of slip resistant surface is standard on
Fibergrate pultruded products?
The standard Fibergrate
pultruded grating surface is a secondarily applied quartz

What are some benefits of using Dynarail handrail and
Dynarail handrails and
ladders are corrosion resistant, lightweight, low maintenance and
available in easy to install modular kits.
Is it possible to use grating pedestals with pultruded
Our pedestals are not
designed to be a direct support system for pultruded or rectangular
mesh moulded gratings. They can, however, be used with double bases
to support structural members that support the grating. Consult
engineering for more details.
