Fiberglass Grating

Our molded fiberglass grating and pultruded fiberglass grating provide unmatched corrosion resistance properties, especially when compared to steel flooring products. Strength, long life and safety are also superior qualities of our fiberglass grating products, and their electrically non-conductive properties make them the ideal option for floor grating.

We offer many types of fiberglass grating for all your different loading applications. Fiberglass grating applications range from architectural sun screening and fiberglass flooring to standard walkways and high load rolling applications. Grit surfaces and standard stock colors or custom colors are provided to suit your fiberglass application. Choose from our custom resin types for a fiberglass flooring product that is tailored to suit your corrosion resistance needs.

Molded Molded Fiberglass Grating
Molded fiberglass grating is a fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) that combines fiberglass rovings with thermosetting resins to form a strong, one-piece molded panel. A 65%/35% resin to glass weight ratio provides high corrosion resistance. Meniscus surfaces or applied grit surfaces provide slip resistance when compared to steel flooring and other flooring products. This fiberglass grating product is better suited for corrosive environments.
Pultruded Pultruded Fiberglass Grating
Pultruded fiberglass grating is made using premium grade isophthalic polyester, vinyl ester or phenolic resin systems with a synthetic surfacing veil, making it corrosion resistant, lightweight and durable. Pultruded fiberglass has a grit surface for safety and a greater strength to weight ratio than molded fiberglass grating. A 35%/65% resin to glass ratio provides greater strength and less corrosion resistance than molded fiberglass grating. This product is better suited for longer spans of fiberglass flooring.
Fiberglass Covered Grating Fiberglass Covered Grating
Our fiberglass covered grating is a long-lasting, molded fiberglass flooring product that combines smooth, gritted or checker plate and molded grating manufactured with any of our resin systems. It is the ideal choice when floor grating needs to be 100% covered. Our fiberglass covered grating is often used in loading and storage areas with high foot and cart traffic, where a strong, level surface is ideal. It offers approximately 50% higher stiffness values than that of open mesh grating and its standard grit-top cover assures secure footing.
Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Plate Bullet Resistant Fiberglass Plate
Our bullet resistant fiberglass plate offers superior ballistic resistance at a weight less than 25% that of a comparable steel panel. Now available for commercial security fiberglass applications for your business, home or governmental facility, these fiberglass panels offer ballistic resistant security with the additional performance advantages of durability, corrosion resistance, electrical non-conductivity, low thermal conductivity and light weight.
Heavy Duty Fiberglass Grating Heavy Duty Fiberglass Grating
Our heavy duty fiberglass grating is available in both molded and pultruded grating systems. Both types of heavy duty fiberglass grating are designed to carry forklift and tractor-trailer loads that traditional molded and pultruded FRP grating products are not designed to support. Heavy duty fiberglass grating provides greater durability for higher volume traffic areas as well. Additionally, Heavy Duty Fiberglass Grating can be used to free span longer distances than traditional fiberglass grating.
Fiberglass Stair Treads and Fiberglass Stair Tread Covers Fiberglass Stair Treads and Fiberglass Stair Tread Covers
Lightweight and easy to install, fiberglass stair treads are available in both molded and pultruded types to match the fiberglass floor grating platforms. Fiberglass stair tread covers are made from a molded glass and resin system that is corrosion and impact resistant, fire retardant and non-conductive. They provide a cost effective, slip-resistant protective surface for concrete, metal and wood steps.
Fiberglass Grating Handrails and Fiberglass Ladders Fiberglass Grating Handrails and Fiberglass Ladders
Fiberglass handrail systems are fabricated from pultruded fiberglass components and molded thermoplastic connectors. Our modular fiberglass grating handrail systems are available in 2-inch square or 2-inch round configurations that are easy to grip, making them ideal for any high traffic area. Our fiberglass ladders and cages can be installed in a variety of applications from sump pumps to tanks, buildings, piers, portable equipment, etc., providing years of strength and dependability.
Fiberglass Attachments and Fiberglass Clips Fiberglass Attachments and Fiberglass Clips
Our fiberglass grating attachments and clips are specially designed to secure fiberglass grating or plates to the supporting structures. Additionally, they are used to fasten together adjacent grating panels, which minimizes load-induced differential deflection. All fiberglass attachments and clips are made of Type 316 stainless steel and are available in 1-, 1-1/2- and 2-inch sizes.
Fiberglass Plates Fiberglass Plates
Fiberglass plates feature a non-conductive surface that makes them an economical and safe solution to walking surfaces. In caustic and/or acidic conditions, fiberglass plates provide a level of corrosion resistance that is unequaled and more cost effective than stainless steel. Fiberglass plate is available with a non-grit surface or with a grit surface where anti-slip traction is needed.
Fiberglass Structural Shapes Fiberglass Structural Shapes
Our fiberglass structural shapes and pultruded fiberglass profiles are made from a combination of fiberglass and thermosetting resin systems. All shapes are lightweight, impact resistant, low maintenance, non-magnetic, low conductive and have dimensional stability, making them easy to install and ideal for several applications. Custom shapes are available upon request.
