Fiberglass grating why you should use it?

  1. 1. • Fiberglass can be made in a lot number of ways, with a number of different chemical recipes.So, fiberglass can imitate quality plastics, metals and woods fairly accurately, and at lower costs.
  2. 2. • Fiberglass grating is durable, affordable and lightweight, but it’s also strong as all heck. There are many benefits of using this type of material, but the most important being that it is an excellent alternative to metal grating where rust, corrosion, or chemical attack are issues.
  3. 3. • It takes four times the amount of plastic per square inch to support thermal-molded fiberglass grating’s strength per unit. In fact, it’s so resistant to weight and corrosion that battery racks are almost always made of this material as well. Battery acid is highly corrosive, even if the batteries are maintained, it’s entirely possible for one to spring a leak. Combined with their massive weight, upward of 50 pounds in many cases, this adds up to a need for a material that doesn’t rust or dissolve easily, and which has the tensile strength to fight this chemical advance under significant pressure.
  4. 4. • The resin systems available include Orthophthalic Polyester (for general purpose), Isophthalic Polyester (or ISO), Vinyl Ester, Fire Retardant, USDA certified, all have UV Resistance. Each are designed to fit the specific needs and conditions of where the grating will be used, and how it will be used.
  5. 5. • Several industries use this type of material including food processing plants, waste water treatment plants, lift stations, aquariums, chemical plants, plating shops, Power plants along with beverage and canning facilities.
