Fibreglass Grating

  

GRATEX® FRP FIBREGLASS GRATING - MOULDED & PULTRUDED is a cost effective, lightweight
solution for walkways, platforms, gullies, trenches and mezzanines.

GRATEX®FRP FIBREGLASS GRATING - MOULDED & PULTRUDED has a high strength to weight
ratio, is corrosion resistant, and is slip resistant. It exhibits low thermal conductivity, is
non-magnetic and non-sparking.

Both grating types provide excellent impact and loading characteristics.

GRATEX®

FRP FIBREGLASS GRATING - MOULDED & PULTRUDED is available in three resin types:

  • Isophthalic Polyester - moderate exposure to corrosive elements; and a low flamespread rating of 25 or less

  • Vinyl Ester - for resistance to both acid and alkaline environments; and a flame
    spread of 25 or less

  • Phenolic - provides the ultimate fire resistance; designed to withstand prolonged fire exposure without sustaining structural damage.

GRATEX®FRP FIBREGLASS GRATING - MOULDED & PULTRUDED is easy to install, requiring only a
circular saw, jig saw or angle grinder.

Standard moulded panels are 1220mm x 2445mm. Special sizes and customising are available on request.

Important Notes
1.  U, kg/m², maximum allowable unfactored uniformly distributed loading for that stated span             
2.  C, kg/m maximum allowable unfactored centre line load per metre
3.  Load/Span Tables based on elastic deflections of span/200 or 10mm, whichever the lesser when subjected to the specified unfactored load
4.  All table loadings to be taken as nominal and should not be used as guarnateed values
5.  Appropriate safety factors must be applied by the designer
