d2 GRP Heavy Duty Floor Grating
Meet the next generation of GRP grating
d2 Dura Grating is a new patent pending GRP grating series that takes structural flooring to the next level. Available exclusively from Dura Composites.
Designed, developed and manufactured by Dura Composites, d2 Dura Grating offers outstanding safety, performance and durability and is more cost-effective than traditional GRP grating in almost every scenario.
d2 Dura Grating 38mm Standard Mesh features an open hole size of 32mm x 32mm and is our most cost effective open mesh flooring solution.
d2 Dura Grating Mini Mesh has a smaller open mesh area. d2 Dura Grating Micro Mesh is suitable for all footwear.
d2 Dura Grating Solid Top is a great choice where no light transmittance, drainage or through visibility is required.
Our innovative d2 Dura Grating products are suited to every industry. Each variant is compliant with British Standards and offers superb efficiencies.
Not All GRP Grating is Created Equally
d2 Dura Grating can be applied in all industries where GRP mesh grating is used today and encapsulates a high strength to weight ratio, safe anti-slip surface and a unique patent pending design.
Our next generation GRP mesh grating has an improved strength to weight ratio.
Our proprietary d2 Dura Grating is the first in the industry to be produced as Class B BS EN13501 as standard, superseding BS476.
Our high spec surface materials are tested to 1.1 million footfalls (BS 7976-2), with ultra low slip potential and max durability.
Use of hi-tech resin systems and application techniques means d2 Dura Grating’s colour is consistent and long lasting.
Ball Fall Test Compliant
d2 Dura Grating offers small open holes ensuring compliance with 20mm Ball Fall Test. Suitable for a wider range of footwear.

Standards are used to establish consistent protocols that can be universally understood ensuring the reliability of the materials, products and services people use every day.
Adherence to standards can make it easier to understand and compare competing products, but with such a broad range of standards out there covering fields as diverse as health and safety, the fire performance of materials, and safe access to machinery and equipment, it can be hard to ascertain which standards may affect the material selection for your particular project.
The list below highlights the suitability of d2 Dura Grating for some of the main standards in common usage for GRP flooring.
British Standard Guide
BS 4592 ‘Flooring, Treads & Handrails for Industrial use’ states that any opening should prevent the passage of a 35mm diameter sphere except where the grating is above a place where people are working as opposed to occasionally passing, then the openings should prevent a 20mm diameter sphere from passing through.
BS EN ISO 14122 “Safety of machinery” – “Permanent means of access to machinery” states that openings should prevent a 35mm sphere from occasional passage underneath and a 20mm diameter sphere for spaces that are more regularly worked.
BS EN 13501-1
“Fire Classification of construction products and building elements” assesses a material’s contribution to fire, smoke emissions and burning droplets. d2 Dura Grating GRP flooring achieves a classification of B s1 d0 – meaning very limited contribution to fire, with the lowest possible smoke emissions and zero burning droplets. This test supersedes BS476 as it tests for smoke and droplets.
Norsok Working Environment Standard
d2 Dura Grating also meets the specific requirements of the NOrsok Working Environment Standard developed for the Norwegian Offshore Sector. This standard requires that grating used for Floors, Deck, Surfaces & Platforms shall not allow a ball of more than 20mm diameter to fall through. The 20mm grating open hole limit applies wherever there are persons working beneath the grating. If there is no-one working below the maximum opening can be 35mm in diameter.
Impressive Anti-slip Results
Dura Grating’s anti-slip surface features a high specification composition which achieves ultra low slip potential in both wet and dry conditions. The slip potential of the surface is proven to reduce by a mere 5% after 1 million footfalls (in accordance with BS 7976-2:2002+A1:2013) whilst still achieving an impressive score of 62 in the wet against the low slip potential threshold of just 36.
