Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating on ships and in shipping

The shipping, maritime and offshore sectors are subjected to extreme conditions: wet, aggressive and corrosive (water-rich) environments. These extremes make high demands on the materials used on ships and in shipping. Rust and rot, moisture action and working of materials are frequently occurring problems.

Use of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating is the solution!

Fibreglass reinforced Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating is used increasingly often in shipping, on inland navigation vessels and in the maritime sector. Because the use of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) grating has many advantages compared to steel grating. Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating is high in strength and corrosion-resistant, is lightweight, has a long service life and is safe: excellent anti-slip properties.

Advantages of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating

  • Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating is safe (anti-slip surface)
  • Fiber Reinforced Plastic is corrosion-resistant (does not rust, does not rot)
  • low-maintenance
  • long service life
  • easy to process
  • easy to install

Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating with antistatic top surface

The Fiber Reinforced Plastic grating can be fitted with an optional antistatic top surface, to prevent static electricity.

Safe, weatherproof and excellent anti-slip properties

Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic grating is widely used in the maritime sector on ships and in shipping. Applications include Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic walkways, platforms, staircases, hatch constructions, ladders and landings.
