Description

Our phenolic, pultruded FRP gratings are designed to withstand harsh, corrosive environments. As high-performance and open-mesh gratings, they are ideal for medium- to heavy-duty use in a wide range of applications, such as on marine vessels and offshore platforms or for pedestrian areas and larger loads, including vehicle traffic. Much stronger than moulded grating by design, pultruded gratings can carry higher loads with significantly less deflection. FRP grating is lightweight—typically one-third the weight of its steel grating equivalent—yet extremely robust and impact resistant.
