Fiberglass reinforced plastic grating (also known as FRP grating, glass reinforced plastic grating or fiberglass grating) is a composite material manufactured by combining a matrix of resin and fiberglass. Fiberglass grating does not corrode like steel grating and is therefore used in corrosive environments to reduce maintenance costs. It is used in a variety of applications including walkways and overhead platforms. FRP grating is a structural product that can be weight-bearing between spans.0March 23
Anti-slip steel grating is a type of bar grating to prevent slippage. Steel bar grating is manufactured in a variety of methods. Welded bar grating consists of load bars electrically fuse welded to cross bars. Pressure-locked bar grating, or swaged grating, is where steel rods are forced through and locked in load bars. Riveted bar grating is where the load bars are riveted to the cross bars. There are wide varieties of trade names for each type manufactured.
Perforated sheet metal types:
- Diamond-shaped serrated perforated sheet metal. Examples of trade names are Grip Strut, Diamond Grip, Ry, Diamond, Grip Span, Deck Span, Grip Track.
- Round hole perforated sheet metal. Examples of trade names are Perf-o-grip, Safety-grip, Shur Grip, Ry-Grip, Open Grip and Grate Lock.
- Raised dimple perforated sheet metal. Examples of trade names are Traction Tread, Safety Tread, Shur Step, Ry-Tread and Tread Grip.
The excellent self-cleaning characteristics of plain surface grating make it suitable for the majority of applications. In the presence of fluids or materials that could cause the top surface of the grating to become wet or slippery, specification of the optional serrated surface should be considered. When serrated grating is specified, the bearing bar depth must be 1/4 inch greater than the sizes shown on the load tables to provide the equivalent strength of non-serrated gratings.a0March 23
