GRP Gratings: Stronger Than Metal
Gripclad GRP Grating provides a modern high specification alternative to traditional galvanised steel and ply board service riser duct flooring. Easy to install. Simply cast into fresh concrete, as the building is constructed, or retro-fit at a later stage. The grating is lightweight, corrosion resistant, and extremely durable.
GRP Grating allows opportunities for increased safety, and is considered to be the No. 1 choice for every contractor that works with service riser voids on various floor levels and with their ease of use cutting on site is easily processed via the installers with no need of hot work permits.
It offers lightweight, non corrosive, non magnetic, chemical resistant, UV stability & Rf transparent solution for the 21st century construction industry.

How do GRP Gratings help in Risers?
There are four ways in which to use GRP Grating in Service Risers. Lay them in position and pre-cast concrete them in but you wont be able to lift and remove them, or fix them down post concrete cast using various fixing positions.
Instant Improvement without Hot Work Permits
GRP Grating allows opportunities for increased safety, whereby the riser opening can be closed off at the same time as it is formed. This not only saves lives but also gives the contractor the opportunity of cost savings. No expensive crash barriers are required as a safe working platform is already installed. Reduced labour on site means reduced risk, and materials offer environmental benefits through weight savings over traditional materials used.
Where the riser opening gets closed out straight after its cast the service routes through the risers are taken into account when the support structure is planned, ensuring that when the service holes are simply cut out of the grating, using a jigsaw and no hot works permit, the contractor is left with a safe working platform that will last as long as the building.
The perfect answer when risers are the question
"Using GRP Grating is such a simplistic and practical product to use in service riser applications. Not only is it lightweight and easy to handle, we can cut to exact size with no special tools or welding involved."
