Why GRP Grating?
GRP Grating offers safety without compromise. It's lighter, cheaper and more durable than traditional steel gratings.
It is versatile, cost effective and durable with an anti-slip solution for floors,walkways, ramps, gantries, platforms and anywhere else your feet touch the ground. We offer GRP square moulded open mesh, mini-mesh gratings, solid top covered grating for a vast range UK Industries and Applications.
Our GRP Gratings are reinforced with vertical and horizontal continuous fibreglass strands, which are fully soaked in unsaturated polyester resin, providing excellent bi-directional strength and mechanical properties which offers a strength-to-weight ratio that consistently outperforms it's metal counterparts.
At GripClad, we have over 25 years' experience in providing structural and sound anti-slip solutions to businesses across the UK and Europe.

Why GRP Grating?
It comes down to common sense, on lower cost, durability, safety and handling. Our GRP grating, anti-slip and flooring systems comply with relevant UK and Europe standards. Are fire retardant to ASTM E84 and we also adhere to BE EN ISO 14122 permanent means of access to industrial equipment and BS4592 industrial flooring, walkways and stair treads regulations.
GRP Composite materials are replacing conventional materials and major asset-owners are fostering innovation and steadily increasing the use in so many applications. By combining fibreglass rovings with a thermosetting resin, these are proven to withstand the effects of corrosion and are highly impact resistant, and each day newly found applications are discovered,
They meet the same specified load requirements as steel and are more resistant to impact. Due to the wide variety of applications for GRP gratings, we offer a range of different sizes and resin systems to suit various environments.
Our gratings are all manufactured to BS EN ISO 9001:2000 standards.
GripClad GRP gratings are versatile and reliable, making them suitable in a variety of situations including:
- Anti-Slip footbridges
- Non-slip stair grating
- Swimming pool overflow grates
- Anti-slip fibreglass Decking
- Non-slip catwalks & footbridges
- Removeable Grid Flooring
- Anti-Slip Drain Covers
- Grid walkway mesh
- Drainage Channel Grates
Excellent Anti-Slip Performance
The slip hazards of wet metal gratings can be avoided by replacing them with this lightweight, fibreglass alternative.
GRP gratings have a great reputation for their slip resistance and have an ‘Excellent ‘ pass in tests carried out to BS 7976-2:2002 making these grating ideal for use in water and around wet areas.

Fibreglass grating offer good corrosion resistance over a wide pH range. It is also highly resistant to wear, tear, impact and abrasion.
Our gratings can withstand a wide range of chemicals. If you have a specific requirement, get in touch for the test results on all chemicals.
GRP gratings also have high fire and weather resistance. No matter what happens, our grating will maintain its structure and reliability.
Our gratings meet the Class 1 Flame Spread rating of 25 or less, in accordance with ASTM E-84 Tunnel Test Method. If a flame spread requirement of less than 25 is required we can supply this bespoke. Get in touch today if you have specific requirements.
Our anti-slip products are ideal outside as well as inside. All of our GRP gratings are manufactured with high quality UV inhibitors to prevent degradation from UV rays.
Strength of GRP
In tests involving impact resistance and strength-to-weight ratio, GRP gratings consistently outperform their metal equivalents.
Just 38mm of gratings 1 metre wide, can easily withstand 1/2 ton per square metre. The performance improved when the width is reduced: at 300mm wide, the 38mm grating will withstand loads in excess of 12 tons.
This performance makes GRP gratings ideal for all pedestrian traffic and medium loadings.
Maintenance and Costs
You'll find GRP gratings easy to lift, transport, install and maintain. This is all thanks to their light weight and easy-clean design. Since they are resistant to weather erosion and chemical corrosion, you can enjoy a GRP grating for its entire 25 year life plus.
Manufactured according to ISO 9001, the structural integrity of the GRP gratings is high grade
