FRP Molded Grating for Security and Decoration

FRP molded grating, an alternative to steel grating, is more and more popular in worldwide. Compared with steel grating, the FRP grating is lighter weight, colorful and high loading capacity. Moreover, the FRP molded grating will never corrosion during its long service life. It is widely used in industrial, public, residences, commercial and other fields for ventilation, drainage, traffic and decorations.

Production technology

FRP molded grating is a type of plate material with certain open area. It is made of unsaturated polyester resin and glass fiber roving. The glass fiber roving is intersected weaving at the mold and then pour polyester resin to form the molded grating. The glass fiber roving and polyester resin mixed together to maximize  the corrosion resistance performance. Different content of color pigments are added to form transparent, half transparent and non-transparent molded gratings.

FRP molded grating mesh type

Commonly, the FRP molded grating is made into square meshes. To suit more applications, we can supply the rectangular mesh molded grating. Detailed mesh sizes and thickness, just refer to the Table 1.

  • Square mesh.
  • Rectangular mesh.

FRP molded grating appearance

As we all know, the FRP molded grating is made of polyester resin and glass fiber roving. We can add different color pigments to make the FRP grating colorful and attractive. Different content of color pigment added decides the transparency of molded grating.

  • Transparent. No color pigment added will make the grating transparent with a slight greenish color.
  • Translucent. Small quantities of color pigments are added to make the grating translucent with a color shade.
  • Opaque. It is the most widely used and common seen type. Color pigments are added during production to make the FRP molded grating colorful. All the colors can be customized according to customers' requirements.

FRP molded grating surface

FRP molded grating is widely used in industrial, public and residences for drainage, ventilation and protecting as trench cover, walking stair treads or platform. For safety passing and protecting workers' safe, we supply two kinds of surface to supply excellent anti-slip performance.

  • Concave surface. The middle part surface of grating is concave with the edge convex to form an uneven surface to increase slip resistance performance.
  • Grit surface. Raised and coarse surface to increase the friction of grating surface to achieve excellent anti-slip performance.

FMG-07: Grit surface has better slip resistance performance than concave surface.

Advantages of FRP molded grating

  • Excellent corrosion resistance. It can withstand multi-types of chemical erosion.
  • Self cleaning. The smooth surface make grating has self-cleaning performance, which can save maintenance efforts and time during long service life.
  • Anti-slip. Concave or grit surface make the FRP molded grating has excellent anti-slip performance to guarantee the people or equipment safety.
  • Lightweight structure. At the same size and opening area, the FRP grating is much lighter than the carbon steel steel grating or aluminum steel grating.
  • Flame retardant. The FRP grating has excellent anti-flame and fireproof performance.
  • Bi-directional strength. The unique structure make the molded grating a bi-directional strength to bear the heavy load evenly.
  • Extended life. The resin coating surface supplies excellent chemical and UV resistance to extend the service life of molded grating.
  • Easy to install and replace. The FRP molded grating is lightweight and there needs no special tools to operate. So it saves efforts and time to install or replace them.
  • High load capacity. The FRP grating has high loading capacity, it will not bend even the heavy duty vehicles passing.
  • Good elasticity. The FRP molded grating has a bit elasticity, which can increase the comfortable sensation when stepping on it.
