The process of pultrusion creates extremely strong and corrosion resistant grating.
Our pultruded GRP grating has a high load-bearing capacity, much greater than moulded grating systems and is ideally suited to installations with greater unsupported spans and even vehicular traffic. A choice of resin types enable the product to withstand the harshest of industrial & commercial environments. Even when exposed to these conditions over extended periods, they require little or no maintenance. These types of gratings have been in service in excess of 20 years with no failures or discernible structural changes noted.
Manufactured by a process of pultrusion, longitudinal fibreglass rovings, multi-directional glass mat reinforcement, thermosetting resins and a synthetic surface veil are all combined to form an extremely strong and corrosion resistant structural section.
These sections, or bearing bars are either ‘I’ or ‘T’ shaped profiles and are assembled and transversely linked with 3-part composite rod sections. They are suitable for both interior or exterior use, coupled with a proven resistance to the effects of chemical corrosion and UV light degradation, they are also fire retardant.
Depending on the specification, the panels are available with a choice of spacing, or opening between the bearer bars of between 33%-60% of the surface area. The bearer surfaces may be further enhanced by an optional gritted coating, or covered and gritted top surface.
The relative light weight of the product makes transport, handling & installation far easier than metallic gratings.
Panels may be manufactured or cut to size before delivery to site for immediate installation, or cut in-situ using diamond tipped tooling and resealed using approved resin top coat.
Colours include white, light grey, dark grey (Type O), yellow, orange (Type V), red (Type P), green (Type I), blue
To Order: all resin types are available in any RAL colour*
Additional options include resin finished highlighted edges, gritted top surface, water jet cutting of intricate & unusual shapes e.g. removable sections for maintenance, full range of fasteners
