Fiberglass reinforced plastic (frp) grating


Published on

Fiberglass grating has many advantages over steel grating, not only for performance but also cost competitveness. The wide range of gratings available can satisfy general industrial needs or high load requirements like forklift traffic.

  2. 2. What is FRP grating? • Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic grating is a composite material used in a wide array of construction industries. • It consists of a mixture of fiberglass and resin that is made into one- piece panels orcan be custom made to fit the unique shape of a floor. 
  3. 3. Molded FRP Grating Molded FRP grating is made using a mold where the glass is layered. These floor grates are less expensive than pultruded FRP floor grating, but have a much higher resin content giving them more corrosion resistance, although they have less structural load capacity.
  4. 4. Molded Fiberglass grating is ideal for corrosive environments with a lot of foot traffic, including wastewater treatment plants, industrial and chemical plants, corrosive environments like marine or urban locations, powerplants, etc.
  5. 5. Pultruded FRP Grating • These fiberglass floor grates are created by pulling glass strands through a machine, which are then sealed together into the desired shape.  • Pultruded fiberglass grating comes in a wide variety of shapes, thicknesses, and cross bar assemblies, depending on the load requirements of the application
  6. 6. Pultruded Grating consists of a series of parallel bearing bars. The bearing bars typically have a ‘T’ or ‘I’ shaped profile. The closer the bearing bars are together, the strongerthe grating.
  7. 7. Pultruded can only bear weight in the direction of the bearing bears, while moulded grating can support weight from any direction.
  8. 8. Benefits of FRP Grating •  Low Maintenance Cost – thefiberglassand resin component makethe product very hard wearing, reducing theneed to maintain it.  • Impact Resistant – theflexibility and high strength to weight ratio of FRP allowsfor agreater load bearing capacity.  • Reduced Installation Time – compared to other products, dueto it being lightweight, FRPiseasy to install which minimizes theoverall cost of construction.  • Corrosion Resistant – becausesteel isparticularly susceptibleto damage from theelements, FRPgrating isacost effectivealternative, particularly in corrosiveenvironments.
