Compared to traditional steel or aluminum grating, fiberglass is light weight, non-conductive, corrosion resistant, fire retardant, and slip resistant. Constructed from fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP), FRP is used in hundreds of commercial, industrial and residential applications, including platforms, handrails, decks, catwalks, and more. Look for pultruded and molded grating in the most popular sizes and configurations. Its cost is similar to that of steel.
American Grating's GRIDWALK™ Molded Grating is constructed in one-piece, using reinforced polyester or vinyl ester resin and continuous interwoven fiberglass strand. This gives it multi-directional strength and allows for fabrication such as holes, cut-outs, without losing any structural integrity. It's used for flooring systems, walkways, trenches, platforms, stairs and much more. Customers can choose from a variety of sizes, such as 4' x 12', 4' x 8', 3' x 10', 5’ x 10’ and thicknesses such as 1", 1-1/2", 2”. Molded grating is easy to fabricate. You can custom fabricate or we can fabricate panels to size for you.
American Grating's GRIDWALK™ Pultruded Grating is ideal for longer spans and slightly lower in cost than Molded Grating. Its high load bearing strength makes it uniquely popular for spanning long distances. GRIDWALK™ grating uses a two part locking cross rod and features powerful uni-directional strength. The individual bars are made of glass roving and glass mat which gives it its strength. A surfacing veil provides high corrosion resistance. Used for flooring systems, walkways, trenches and platforms, customers can choose from a variety of sizes such as 3', 4' or 5' wide by 8', 10', or 20' lengths. Standard thicknesses are 1", 1-1/2", and 2", I bar or T bar are available.
