Fibreglass Grating is regularly specified to replace metal grid grating, cast iron and aluminium grating
Metal grid grating can suffer from corrosion and can lose structural strength without warning.
Metal Grid Grating
Dura Grating is generally used to replace other grid grating products due to it’s anti slip qualities and is manufactured using a unique construction technique that provides an incredible strength to weight ratio, the result is a material producing a composite structure that is stiff, strong, lightweight, non-corrosive, non-conductible walkway with an anti slip walking surface.
Cast iron grating is heavy and over time can rust giving a poor appearance and is also very difficult to lift by hand in confined spaces.
Cast Iron Grating
Cast iron grating is slippery when wet and compared with fibreglass grating and is approximately three times heavier. Fibreglass grating can easily be lifted by a one or two man team obviating the necessity for cranes or heavy lifting equipment and can easily be supplied in a size and weight to be lifted by one man.
Fibreglass grating can be specified for new or replacement projects in place of more costly Aluminium grating.
Aluminium grating has been available for decades, and has been successful for a number of applications. However, over the post few years, we have witnessed problems where Aluminium grating has failed due to damage by overloading causing the Aluminium grating to deform rendering the walking surface dangerous and a trip hazard.
Fibreglass grating weighs about one third as much as steel grating and is corrosion resistant.
Corrosion Resistant, Fire Resistant, Non Magnetic, Lightweight, Anti Slip and Maintenance Free
Often referred to as Industrial GRP Grating (glassfibre reinforced plastics) this material is generally known as the material for chemical plant and yacht construction. Industrial grating is suitable for factory walkways, workstations, washbays and gully and trench gratings. The anti slip surface meets health and safety requirements for all industries. Industrial grating is light, strong and can be supplied with a full range of stainless steel clips, clamps and various hold-down fixings to suit all situations.

British Standard Slip Resistance Test Results
The B.S. 4592 test was devised to test and assess the slip resistance of industrial type flooring intended for use in water and wet areas. A co-efficient of friction (CoF) is calculated by determining the mean angle of inclination that an operator can safely maintain when the flooring is subjected to a continuous stream of water.
Standard colours are Green and Grey, other RAL colours available on request for volume orders.
