Bet there are a few things that you wish you’d known before starting a business

GOING OUT ON YOUR OWN CAN BE TOUGH, BUT NAVIGATING THE CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES OF THE ENTREPRENEURIAL LANDSCAPE IS A LOT EASIER IF YOU’RE PREPARED

Article by Joanne Richard

Special to QMI Agency

Listening and learning g from others who have ‘been there, done that’, is essential to growth and success, says Rick van Rikxoort, co-president of Southwell Corporation in B.C. Not that he did that.
“I wanted to be the Lone Ranger and do it all myself —my ego and pride got in the way,” says the successful entrepreneur. “You need a support network when starting up — I have one now and they keep me sane, but I wish I had one at the beginning.”

Going it alone is not an express elevator to the top, nor is trying to be everything to everyone.

“Focus on what you do well,” stresses van Rikxoort whose insight and drive to increase sales of his industrial fiberglass structural products has been a boon to his business and also earned him the nickname “Fiberman”. In 10 years, he’s gone from $750,000 in annual sales to $4 million.

Rick van Rikxoort is known as Fiberman“Knowledge is still king—know your product, know your market,” adds van Rikxoort, of Southwell Corp. com, who attributes his success to “doing it better than anyone else.”

A great online presence plays a key role in his increased sales of 20% per year over the last three years. Expect trial and error, and don’t get discouraged. “Stick it out — sometimes you have to give 110% when the business is only giving you 40%,” adds van Rikxoort, who is now proudly debt free but occasionally dips into a “generous” $300,000 line of credit from RBC to finance receivables and a few small projects.

According to Steve Noussis, manager, Small Business, RBC, building a business requires patience, perseverance and a solid business plan.

“Don’t be afraid to make mistakes!” Learn from the challenges in order to take your business to the next level. Noussis emphasizes the importance of having a solid plan in place with clear and realistic goals. RBC offers a variety of excellent tools and resources to help build a business plan, manage cash flow and connect to industry support.

Fiberglass Grating Panels in Stock

Fiberglass Grating Panels

We Stock Fiberglass Grating Panels and Ship the Next Day to Locations Across Canada and USA

At Fiberman, we stock all the most popular profiles of molded and pultruded fiberglass grating. Whether you are looking for fiber grate panels for walkways, stair treads, pit covers, platforms, or decks, we have the fiberglass grating panels you need at a competitive price.

Fiberglass Grating Panels from Fiberman

Molded Fiberglass Grating Panels

Molded grating is our most popular type of fiberglass grating panel. It is cost-effective, lightweight and can be easily cut to size. Molded grating has 1/4″ bearing bars with a 1-1/2″ square mesh pattern that form 1-1/4″ square open areas. This allows plenty of room for air or water to pass through, while providing a sturdy support to walk on.

While 1-1/2″ thick (deep) grating is the most common panel thickness, 1″ and 2″ panels are also available. The thicker (and stronger) the panels, the further apart the supports can be spaced underneath. If your supports are over 3 feet apart, you will likely need 2″ thick grating, depending on the load. If your supports are 2 feet apart or less, you may only need 1″ thick grating.

Take a look at our Grating Selection Chart to compare panel strength.

FRP for WWTP

Fiberman molded grating panels are available with a coarse grit to provide excellent traction in slippery industrial environments.

Molded Fiberglass Grating Panel Sizes:

  • 3 x 10
  • 4 x 8
  • 4 x 12
  • 5 x 10

Pultruded Fiberglass Grating Panels

For applications where you need stronger grating or more surface area, pultruded grating may be a better choice. Pultruded grating comes in panel sizes 3, 4 , or 5 feet wide by 12′ or 20′ long.

Take a look at our video on the difference between molded and pultruded grating panels.

T-5000 2″ grating is a strong, industrial grating panel that can span up to 5 feet whereas T-1800 (1″ or 1-1/2″Deep) has only 18% open space and its mild, non-slip surface makes it a foot-friendly option for waterparks and swimming pools.

How to Cut Fiberglass Grating

How to Cut Fiberglass Grating

This video shoes how to cut FRP Grating safely using a standard skill saw. They key is to use a diamond tip blade. If you try to use a regular blade to cut fiberglass grating, it will dull very quickly.

After you’ve drawn your cutting line, clamp down an old piece of plywood to act as a guide. This will make it far easier to cut straight than trying to follow a pencil line.

When cutting FRP, you should saw a little slower that you would normally cut wood. If you try to cut too fast, the saw blade might get jammed. There will be quite a bit of fiberglass dust, so be sure to use a mask with a proper fiberglass filter. If you don’t have a ventilation system, a fan will help direct the dust away from you.

You can cut curves and angles in fiberglass grating the same way. You can use a reciprocating saw or a jig-saw. Again, the key is to use a diamond-tip blade.

Whenever you cut FRP, you’ve got to re-seal it with polyurethane. You can pick up a can of polyurethane spray at any paint store.

So, the next time you buy Fiberglass Grating from Fiberman, you can either order it cut to size, or order full panels and do the cutting yourself.

FRP Grating – Molded or Pultruded?

FRP Grating – Molded or Pultruded?

There are two types of FRP Grating: Molded and Pultruded grating. Both types of Fiberglass Grating are strong, lightweight, and corrosion resistant, but there are some differences.

Molded Grating typically has a square mesh pattern similar to a checker board whereas PULTRUDED grating is made from a series of Parallel Bars.

The squares in the mesh pattern for Molded Grating are typically one and one-half inches on center. The top surface can be gritted as shown here, or a concave non-slip surface.

Other common Mesh patterns are 1 inch x 4 inch rectangular mesh and 1 x 6 as shown here on these molded stair treads.

The most popular panel sizes for molded grating are 4 feet by 12 feet, 4’ x 8’ and 3’ x 10’.

Pultruded Grating consists of a series of parallel bearing bars. The bearing bars typically have a ‘T’ or ‘I’ shaped profile. The closer the bearing bars are together, the stronger the grating.

The bearing bars are kept parallel with a series of cross-rods 6” apart that run at 90 degrees though the bearing bars.

Cross-rods are not intended to be applied in the span direction.
Pultruded grating can only support weight in the direction of the bearing bars.

The bearing bars in Pultruded Grating must traverse from support to support whereas Molded Grating is equally strong in both directions.
Molded Grating panels can be rotated 90 degrees with the same support characteristics.

Both Molded Grating and Pultruded Grating are available in one inch, inch and one-half and 2” deep panels.

Call Fiberman at 1.844.599.0260 and we will help you determine the best type of grating for your application.

Fiberglass and Radio Frequency Transparency

In today’s connected world, we depend on cellular telephone signals, Wi-Fi networks and over the air radio and television signals. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity are essential to on-site work environments. Steel structures significantly disrupt these signals. Molded Fiberglass Grating is an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
