FAQS

GENERAL

What is FRP?
Fibre-reinforced plastic is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres.

 

Where can FRP products be utilized?
FRP products can be used in a wide range of applications that have traditionally employed steel or aluminium. These include floor grating, handrails, ladders, cable management systems, stair cases, pipe crossovers, access platforms, and sumps & bunds.

 

What are the benefits of FRP?
Compared to steel & aluminium, FRP has a whole host of benefits including corrosion resistance, it’s strong & lightweight, impact resistance, ease of maintenance, fire resistance, quick installation and safety from electrical hazards.

 

What are the benefits of FRP Floor Grating?
FRP is the ideal material for floor grating and it outperforms other materials in a number of key areas such as: corrosion resistance, high impact resistance, bidirectional strength, slip resistance and ease of fabrication, installation and utilization. It’s safer, more durable and easier to work with.

 

Why use FRP instead of steel?
Heavy and difficult to work with, steel floor grating rusts & corrodes over time, potentially lowering its structural integrity and slip resistance. This can make it unsafe over the long term.

GENERAL

What makes FRP the ideal material for making access platforms?
FRP’s high durability, low electrical conductivity and high slip resistance makes it the ideal for constructing a wide range of access platforms. High corrosion resistance also makes it especially good for tough and aggressive operating environments that quickly degrade steel and aluminium.

 

CABLE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

What makes FRP such a great choice for your cable management system?
First and foremost, FRP’s corrosion resistance and long life span are important factors. It’s lightweight nature also allows for more cost effective installation. It’s non-conductive and non-magnetic nature also reduces shock hazards and makes it the perfect cable trunking material.
