Fiberglass Floor Plates


Lightweight yet durable, fiberglass floor plates set the standard for high performance structural floor panels. Fiberglass floor plates’ rugged structure is designed for use in applications where durability and long, low-maintenance life are critical. These fiberglass floor plates feature a non-conductive, gritted exterior that makes them an economical and safe solution to slippery walking surfaces. Non-gritted fiberglass floor plates can be bolted directly to structural beams and used as wall panels that are resistant to corrosive splash.

As fiberglass flooring, these plates are often installed over existing grating to provide a solid walkway or to extend the life of a high-traffic area. A molded-in, grit-top surface is standard for improved footing. Since these plates are electrically non-conductive, the possibility of workers being injured by electrical shock is virtually eliminated.

These specially designed fiberglass flooring products are nonporous and are easily cleaned by high-pressure washer and can withstand cleaning solutions. Standard fiberglass panel sizes are 3-by-10 feet, 4-by-8 feet, 4-by-2 feet and 5-by-10 feet. Custom fiberglass floor plate sizes are available. 

In caustic and/or acidic conditions, fiberglass floor plates provide a level of corrosion resistance that is unequaled, even when compared to stainless steel. In addition, the strength of fiberglass floor plates is evidenced by the ability to support heavy loads. To meet a wide range of needs, fiberglass floor plates are manufactured in thicknesses ranging from 1/8 inch to 3/4 inch and are easy to install, with a minimum of material waste. Fiberglass floor plates are available in various resin systems and colors.

Fiberglass Gritted Floor Plates

Fiberglass gritted floor plates are durable, corrosion resistant floor plates. The unique combination of pultruded fiberglass plate and an anti-skid grit surface creates textured solid sheet flooring that is ideal for both wet and dry environments.

Used in a variety of applications such as trench covers to contain vapors and fumes or pedestrian bridge walkways for sure footing, fiberglass gritted floor plates provide a long-lasting maintenance-free alternative to steel plates for severe, corrosive environments.

Fiberglass flooring gritted plates are widely used for:
• Walkways
• Splash walls
• Overpasses
• Bridge decks
• Pool decks
• Trench covers
• Odor control covers

Materials of Construction for Fiberglass Gritted Floor Plates

Fiberglass gritted floor plates are available as solid plate or bonded to pultruded fiberglass grating. The standard fiberglass surface is fine grit; however, a medium grit or coarse grit is also available. It can also be customized to meet the requirements of a variety of applications.

Standard fiberglass flooring gritted plates have a Class 1 flame rating of 25 or less per ASTM E-84 and meet the self-extinguishing requirements of ASTM D-635. 

Fiberglass gritted plates with fine grit are stocked in 4-by-8-foot panels in standard fiberglass/resin system plate thicknesses of 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch. Optional plate thicknesses include 3/16-, 3/8-, 1/2-, 5/8-, 3/4- and 1-inch sizes.
