GRP gratings for industries
GRP gratings can be used in a wide variety of situations, just like steel gratings. But unlike steel gratings, GRP gratings are lighter, stronger and more effective across all metrics. They can be coloured to fit in with specific styles and custom cut to fit a wider range of needs.
One of the most common uses for GRP gratings is flooring. Thanks to its superior heat and chemical resistances, GRP is ideal for industrial flooring and catwalks. Its lightweight, easy to mould properties make GRP grating easy to install in new facilities or replace existing flooring.
GRP grating is stronger than steel, making it an ideal material for placing heavy plant machinery upon. Its anti-slip properties also make it much safer than steel grating, which is prone to slipping hazards.
Gullies and Guttering
When you're working on sites where liquids are commonly splashed around, like breweries, fisheries or marinas, traditional GRP trench covers aren't always suitable. GRP gratings over gullies and guttering allow liquids to sluice away while providing a walking surface for workers. GRP gratings provide excellent grip even when wet, so you can continue to work in safety and confidence no matter how wet things get.
In this capacity, GRP gratings make excellent service risers. They can be set into concrete with ease or installed after the fact to provide a sound walking surface. They can also be custom-cut and fitted to meet any need.
Swimming Pools & Changing Rooms
The combination of grip and water resistance makes GRP grating ideal for the drainage and filtering of swimming pools and leisure centres. Whether you're installing mini mesh at poolside or in the changing rooms to prevent pooling, GRP gratings are the perfect material. They allow you to maintain a flat, accessible walking surface that is safe for bare feet, while allowing water to safely drain away.
GRP gratings are lightweight, quick to install and highly resistant to the elements. That's why you'll commonly find GRP gratings on the roofs of buildings. GRP walkways allow access to areas of the roof that need regular maintenance without putting too much strain on the roof itself. GRP gratings can be cut to specific shapes and assembled modularly, so even roofs with multiple peaks or architectural flourishes can still benefit from safe service walkways.
GRP gratings are more commonly being used in the place of steel gratings as more people start to realise their superiority. GRP gratings can be used in a huge variety of situations, providing site managers and business owners with a safe, cost-effective and reliable anti-slip flooring solution.
