FRP Pultruded grating provides all the benefits usually associated with FRP materials such as corrosion resistance, lightweight, high strength to weight and long service life. Combining the attributes of high glass content, premium-grade thermosetting resins and load bar geometry and configuration affords the FRP pultruded grating exceptionally high strength.
The benefits of the pultrusion manufacturing process allow for easy modification of any or all of these inputs to tailor a grating to suit your specific requirements. From infrequent pedestrian access to high load vehicular traffic, there is an FRP grating option available. The types of resin systems used for the FRP pultruded grating is an important consideration when selecting the most appropriate grating for your application. The types of resin systems used for the FRP pultruded grating is an important consideration when selecting the most appropriate grating for your application.
There is a resin system to suit a wide variety of service environments from architectural applications that need to contend with moist environments to offshore Oil and Gas installation that requires US Coast Guard approved phenolic resins that have a low flame spread and smoke index, to specialty formulations tailored to your specific requirements. Ask FRP Engineering for more information on chemical resistance to ensure you get the optimised resin system for your project. FRP pultruded grating is available in thicknesses from 25mm up to 75mm and with load ratings exceeding 9000kg, making FRP pultruded grating the most versatile grating system available.
Pultruded Stair Treads FRP pultruded stair treads are often chosen for use when the stair stringer width or span distance is greater than 1000mm. As a guide, deflections are recommended to be limited to span /150. FRP pultruded treads are supplied in thicknesses from 25, 38 and 50mm, in both “I” and “T” bar types with open areas ranging from 12 – 60%.
Resin Systems FRP Engineering offers 3 resin options for FRP pultruded grating. Isophthalic Fire Retardant – (ISOFR) – The most popular resin system for marine and industrial applications. ISOFR provides long-lasting performance in areas where corrosion is traditionally an issue. The inclusion of Fire Retardant additives gives the grating a low flame spread score. Vinyl Ester Fire Retardant – (VEFR) – The premium resin for all applications.
VEFR is designed to offer a long service life in the harshest of environments where acids and caustics are present. Moulded grating constructed from this resin is used in, among others, Heavy industry, chemical plants, and fertiliser operations. The inclusion of Fire Retardant additives gives the grating a low flame spread score. Phenolic – (P) – A highly specialised resin designed to be used in areas where fire resistance and smoke suppression are critical. Typically, this type of grating is used in offshore and confined space applications to assist in providing safe access and egress in emergency situations. This grating has a very low flame spread index and very low smoke emissions.
