Why Choose FRP Grating for Your Projects
FRP grating, an newly popular and widely used material has its own benefit for treads, platforms, decorative elements and more. Here is detailed benefits of FRP grating, just refer to them and find why it is ideal choice for so many applications.
The raw material of FRP grating is low. It is much cheaper than various materials of steel grating. In the lifespan, the maximum life can be up to 50 years. And it saves the replace cost. Moreover, there are anti-theft devices for choice to prevent gratings from being stolen, and customers can save the replace cost and labor cost for supervision.
Multi-choice and low cost.
High corrosion resistance.
The glass fiber and polyester resin has excellent corrosion resistance. It will not corrode even in the high corrosive environments. Compared with steel grating, it has wider applications in chemical plants, sewage treatment plants and other high aggressive applications. And fact proves that it is an ideal choice.
Anti-corrosion in chemicals.
FRP grating has excellent self-cleaning performance, which is maintenance free during its long service life. So you can save lots of efforts and cost for maintenance. In the heavy duty applications, you just need to brush them with water pipe.
Little maintenance cost.
The FRP grating has different surface design to supply excellent slip resistance. Grit surface, strip surface, corrugated surface, concave or convex surface. All these can secure pedestrian and workers from safely passing and operating machines.
Grit surface and nosing for anti-slip.
No matter the FRP molded grating or FRP pultruded grating can supply high strength to weight ratio. Fact indicates that the FRP grating has higher loading capacity than the steel grating. Besides, it will not bending even the heavy vehicles passing.
Heavy strength to withstand heavy load.
As we all know, all GRP products, including GRP molded grating and GRP pultruded grating has excellent fire retardant performance. The flame spread rating of 25 or less, as tested in accordance with ASTM E-84 and meets the self-extinguishing requirements of ASTM D-635.
Keep intact in the burning fire.
FRP grating is about 80% lighter weight than steel grating and is equal to 1/3 weight of aluminum grating. All these make the FRP grating has lighter weight and is easy to install and replace. It need no heavy lifting gear during installation and replacement.
Lightweight for easy carrying.
Ease of fabrication.
The FRP grating is easy to fabricate or cut into needed sizes. You just need the standard hard tools, including circular saws. Furthermore, it can be easily fabricated on construction site if required without affecting the corrosion resistance performance.
Easy fabrication by simple tool.
Easy to install and replace.
It has lighter weight and it needs no special heavy duty machines. Besides, it has simple structure, which need no special skills. Just several workers can complete the whole projects. So it is easy to install and replace on sites, which needs few efforts and cost.
Simple and easy to install.
The FRP grating has a slight elasticity, which will not cause uncomfortable feeling even stepping it for long time. Besides, it can reduce back ache for employees who are on foot for long period of working.
Ergonomics supplies good underfoot feeling.
The high strength make the FRP grating withstand high impact from external force. It can also bear the heavy load vehicles passing. So it is ideal for heavy duty applications in large spanning areas.
Heavy strength to withstand external force.
FRP grating is non-conductive. So it is very safe to be used in industrial applications. Additional, It is no need earthing, which make the installation more convenient and easy.
Non-conductive for security.
Different content of color pigment can decide the transparency of FRP grating. No color pigment added make the FRP grating be transparent, little content of color pigment added make the FRP rating translucent and standard FRP grating is opaque. Different transparency make the FRP grating to be used more applications, such as ceiling decoration, wall cladding and store design.
Different transparency for choice.
