Indiana Gratings a metal wire mesh grating supplier manufacturers fiberglass grating products from a range of resins with various bar sizes, spacings, and surface textures, helping you enhance safety and movement at your application

Fiberglass Grating Explained 

Fiberglass grating is bar grating manufactured from fiberglass, a material produced from very thin glass wires melted from molds. Also called fiberglass reinforced plastic, or FRP, it offers many comparable performance characteristics to steel and aluminum but at a lower price. 

  • Strong
  • Resists Chemical Exposure
  • Low Weight  
  • Durable
  • Does Not Spark
  • Resists Corrosion 
  • Increased Traction 
  • Does Not Conduct Electricity
  • Resists Fire
  • Soft Underfoot Feel
  • Fantastic Insulator 
  • No Radio Interference 

Benefits Of Fiberglass Grating

Fiberglass grating has comparable strength to steel but offers the added benefit of flexibility. The rigidity of steel can cause foot and back problems for workers, especially those who must stand for long periods. Easier underfoot, fiberglass grating can curb worker fatigue and increase productivity.

Another advantage of fiberglass is enhanced safety. Unlike steel, it doesn’t conduct electricity. As a result, fiberglass grating is suitable for workplaces with electrical hazards or areas with high voltage equipment. As a poor conductor of heat, it stays cool in extreme or outdoor environments.

The most significant benefit of integrating fiberglass grating into an application is durability. While steel rusts, aluminum reacts when contacted by certain chemicals, and wood rots, fiberglass is unfazed. It resists degradation from water, chemicals, insects, and extreme temperatures. As a result, fiberglass grating lasts longer and needs less maintenance than grating products manufactured from other materials. 

The Fiberglass Grating Experts 

Indiana Gratings is a leading fabricator of fiberglass grating for demanding applications. We can supply it in an array of bars sizes and spacings in molded and pultruded constructions. The construction method is the primary consideration when choosing the best fiberglass grating product for your application. 

Molded Fiberglass Grating

This fiberglass grating type is cast in a mold. This process ensures the finished product has optimal strength in two directions. It exhibits exceptional reliability, even in highly acidic and corrosive conditions. 

Pultruded Fiberglass Grating

This grating type is made by drawing fiberglass rovings and mats through a resin bath and heated dies. Bearing bars and crossbars are mechanically and chemically locked with a recessed tie bar. The finished product is durable, corrosion-resistant, and low maintenance. It’s perfect for a variety of challenging environments. Since it’s assembled instead of molded, a wider variety of sizes and spaces are available. 

Best Uses For Fiberglass Grating 

Both fiberglass grating types are perfect for environments where exposure to moisture, chemicals, and extreme temperatures is expected. Examples include: 

  • Sewage Treatment Plants
  • Petrochemical Facilities 
  • Civil Engineering
  • Rail Infrastructure
  • Vessels
  • Power Stations
  • Chemicals Processing Facilities 
  • Bottled Water Production Plants
  • Drinking Water Treatment Facilities
  • Food And Beverage Processing Plants
  • Waste Processing Facilities 
  • Incineration Plants
  • Offshore Applications 
  • Seaports 
  • Shipping Terminals 
  • Agricultural Applications
  • Docks
  • Marinas
