Fiberglass Grating Products
Fiberglass Grating is the product of choice where
corrosion resistance is paramount and high impact resistance is important.
Fiberglass Grating is manufactured in a one piece construction process
by interlacing pre-wetted glass reinforcing strands in a liquid resin matrix
within a given configuration. Fiberglass Grating
is ideal when you require a product that is highly resistant to corrosive
environments, fire retardant, non-conductive, light weight, low maintenance
or architecturally attractive. Power Engineering Co.
distributes fiberglass grating and pultruded FG. American Grating
provides full engineering and fabrication capabilities.
Fiberglass (FRP) handrails and stairtreads also available.
When compared to steel, this product is very lightweight and
can be made with a grit surface for enhanced slip resistance Once
the resin matrix has cured, the molded grid is removed from the mold. The
one piece construction insures that all glass is impregnated with resin.
Strength: Interwoven square mesh construction offers bi-directional strength.
This construction allows for increased loading versatility when compared
to rectangular mesh. The uniform placement of the continuous glass strands
during construction provides superior strength. Corrosion Resistance: MG
should be the product of choice for severe corrosive environments. Fabrication
Features: In areas that require circular cuts or areas to be field cut and
fabricated, molded square mesh offers great versatility and will often eliminate
the need for additional support for cut edges. Another feature is its easy
adaptability to evaluated floor systems through use of special leg pedestals.
The pedestal flooring system helps compensate for an uneven sub floor or
slope. Safety Surface: Molded Grating offers an outstanding skid resistant
concave surface as an option. A molded-in grit surface is also available
to provide sure footing for worker safety, yet its non-porous qualities help
eliminate bacterial breeding areas in food applications.

High quality, well designed, pultruded grating, which resembles
metal bar grating, is stronger, lighter, equally corrosion resistant, and
in most cases, is less expensive than molded grating. Additionally, pultruded
grating comes in larger panels and can be built to custom panel sizes. In
most applications, pultruded FG will represent the best product and the lowest
price. MFG has equal strength in both directions and is made with square
or rectangular grid patterns. Since it was developed much earlier than pultruded
grating, it is widely used and performs well in many applications.
Rounding out and complementing our line of grating products
is FG. Both molded and pultruded panels are available in stock sizes, or
fabricated per customer plans and specs.
Available in either standard concave or optional grit-top
walking surfaces, MFG offers outstanding skid-resistance for added worker
safety. SPECIALLY FORMULATED RESIN MIXTURES ARE COMBINED WITH CONTINUOUS
FIBERGLASS STRANDS, OR ROVINGS, ON MANUFACTURING HIGH PERFORMANCE MOLDED
GRATING. Molded grating is available in either square or rectangular mesh,
providing optimal customer selection. A premium product, molded grating
combines fiberglass rovings with thermosetting resin to form a strong, one
piece molded panel. Significantly lighter than metallicS, MFG is easy to
install. The square mesh pattern of molded grating allows efficient cutting
of the panels so that a variety of flooring layouts can be accommodated with
a minimum of grating waste. Rectangular mesh molded is often used for walkways
and trench covers in many industrial applications.
