PowerGrid Molded Grating
Our FRP grating is manufactured in an open, heated mold system. Continuous E-glass roving’s are placed in the mold in alternating layers and completely wetted out with resin.
Corrosion and Chemical resistant
Monaco Distributors is the sole national supplier of Ercon FRP (fibreglass reinforced polyester) Cable Ladder, Cable Tray and Cable Support Systems.
Our FRP grating is manufactured in an open, heated mold system. Continuous E-glass roving’s are placed in the mold in alternating layers and completely wetted out with resin. This continuous process produces an integral, one piece construction which provides excellent corrosion resistance as well as bi-directional strength. There are a number of different molds available resulting in a extensive range FRP grating of panel sizes, thickness and mesh patterns.
Metal grating suffers from corrosion and chemical attack within various industries. For example chemical plants, food and beverage factories, water and wastewater facilities,power facilities just to name a few. Our molded FRP grating has been designed and manufactured to provide years of trouble free service against corrosion and chemical attack, provide a long lasting safe alternative to metal grating.
Our FRP grating offers the availability of two types of surfaces. Concave top or a grit top, both are anti-slip. Concave top is the preferred choice of the food and beverage Industry where high pressure cleaning is important. Our Embedded Grit top surfaces provide a more positive traction under foot and is the preferred choice when seeking premium anti-slip.
We also supply a diamond top and grit top for our solid FRP plate. Our anti-slip FRP grating, stair treads and plates help to keep slips and falls in industry down even after years of use. Helping to keep production downtime and costs to industry to a minimum.
Molded FRP grating has a higher slip resistance when compared to metal, wood, concrete tiled surfaces.
Easily fabricated and installed
The use of heavy lifting equipment and expensive fabricating tools are not required. In most installations 2 people can handle panels and cutting panels can be done using circular saws etc.
We can cut panels to desired sizes upon request subject to drawings being produced, this is an alternative to onsite cutting.
Employees no longer have to withstand standing on solid concrete floors, using our molded FRP grating as a flexible working platform results in less fatigue and strain on the lower back and legs providing worker comfort and increasing productivity and safety underfoot.
Our molded FRP grating has a flame spread rating of 25 or less subject to the resin system used as tested to ASTM E-84 test standards and reports.
High strength-to-weight ratio
Our Molded FRP grating’s integral one piece construction, continuous roving’s and quality resin has resulted in grating that is half the weight of steel. This then enables a product applicable for access covers, grates, trench covers, below floor level applications as well as less construction support when used as raised flooring.
Check the load vs deflection tables to see the strength of our molded grating. For assistance contact Monaco Distributors on 1300 666226 should it be required when goign over these tables.
Our molded FRP grating is self cleaning (tapered load bearing bars) , uv resistant and does not need painting even after years of service(molded in colour). Not to mention its chemical and corrosion resistance.
