FRP Moulded Gratings
Ferrotech FRP Moulded Gratings are designed to provide long lasting performance on harsh environment including chemicals, construction, railway, and water treatment.
STP, Offshore Rigs, Industrial Plants, and marine industry, etc. FRP Gratings are significant economic and are designated for safer access. FRP Gratings can substitute steel Gratings that need frequent maintenance or to be applied under corrosive environments.
FRP Moulded & Pultruded Gratings are manufactured using Fiber Glass Strands and premium thermosetting resins Such as Polyester, Isophthalic, Vinyl Ester, Phenolic, depending on the specific application.
FRP Gratings are halogen free, which in case of fire, the smoke released has very low toxins. The Gratings are engineered to have CLASS 1 (flame spread of < 25) as tested accordance to ASTM E-84 Norms. They also meet the self-extinguishing requirements of ASTM D-635. The formulation is classified as M1-F1/M2-F2 according to AFNOR NF-P 92501. FRP Gratings have the advantage of anti-conduct of electricity, fire prevention and non-magnetic properties.
Steel gratings have low initial cost than FRP Gratings, but considering the life cycle costs and replacement costs, FRP Gratings becomes more economical and does not require sandblasting, scraping or coated for many years.
Ferrotech FRP Gratings when loaded have a "slight" deflection which is less stiff compared to traditional steel gratings. This ergonomic features decreases worker fatigue & Strain to the knees and back.
FRP Gratings weigh less than one half of the steel gratings, which reduces the weight on structure and also increases safety during handling & no heavy lifting equipment are required for installation.
Mechanical Properties of FRP pultruded gratings are comparable to steel gratings this maintaining equivalent supporting spans, the energy of heavy objects falling on the gratings can be absorbed and the panels do not deform permanently.
FRP Gratings are manufactured with a special anti-slip surface using integrated quartz grains to decrease the risk of slips and falls. Thus, guarantees exceptional foothold even with presence of water, oil and grease.
FRP Pultruded Gratings
FRP Pultruded Gratings are manufactured by continuous molding process in which fiberglass longitudinal roving, multidirectional mat and a synthetic surfacing veil are passed through a thermosetting resin bath. The wetted fiberglass reinforcements are then pulled through a heated steel die where the composite hardens in the desired geometric shape.
Established to serve Oil and Gas, Power and Desalination, Airports, Waste water treatment plants, Shipbuilding and repair works, Food Industry, Petro chemicals, Pharmaceutical industries, Cement and Sugar Industries, Infra structure projects etc.
