About Molded Fiberglass Grating
Fiberglass molded grating is a strong mesh grating panel used as floor grates and trench grates that are corrosive and chemical resistant, for many industrial applications.
Advantages of Molded Fiberglass Grating
Molded grating costs less than Pultruded Fiberglass Grating, and has limited structural capabilities. It is the simplest, easiest way to cover a trench for highly corrosive environments. FRP Grating is cost-effective and allows for easy on-site cutting, to minimize cost and waste. Molded Fiberglass Grating from Fiberman is designed to last, with resin formulas optimized for UV resistance and durability in harsh environments, which means lower long-term maintenance costs.
Equal Strength Across Dimensions
FRP Gratings are molded in one piece with load-bearing bars that continue in both directions, which means continuous side support is unnecessary.
Safety for Jobsite and Production Plant Walking Surfaces
Molded FRP grating is available with a concave non-slip walking surface that is well-suited for trench grates. The large open surface area of molded grating means water does not build up on walking surfaces. For additional traction on walkways, grit top surfaces are available upon request.
Better Than Steel for Weight and Corrosion Resistance
Fiberman Fiberglass Molded Grating weighs much less than steel grating, and is therefore easier to install. The high resin content of molded FRP grating provides excellent corrosion resistance, unlike steel which will rust and require continual repainting, cleaning or replacement. Molded FRP grating requires very little maintenance, even in the harsh chemical environments associated with acidic or alkali environments that are found in many industrial applications, marine environments and waste water treatment plants.
Designed for Increased Tensile Strength
A higher safety factor is achieved by designing in a higher glass content at the bottom of the grating for greater tensile strength.
Our molded FRP gratings have applications in many industries, including:
- chemical processing
- food & beverage
- oil & gas
- metals & mining
- pulp & paper
- water parks
- IT server farms
- shipping centers
- transportation facilities
- water & waste treatment, and
- numerous architectural uses.
Types of Resin Systems For Molded Fiberglass Grating
Trench and Drain Grates are available in two resin systems which provide different levels of corrosion protection. Both resin systems meet Class 1 Flame Spread Rating per ASTM E-84 test standards.
Polyester: A premium-grade isophthalic polyester resin system that provides excellent corrosion protection. Standard colors: Dark Gray, Light Gray, Yellow, and Green. Equivalent to Fiberglass Grating Competitor Brand and Strongwell Duragrate PP.
Vinyl ester: A chemically resistant system that provides the highest level of corrosion protection. Standard colors: Yellow, Dark Gray, and Orange. Equivalent to Competitor Brand Vinyl Fiberglass Grating and Strongwell Duragrate VE.
Common sheet sizes for molded FRP grating include: 4’x8′, 4’x12′, and 3’x10′. Common thicknesses include: 1″, 1.5″ and 2″. We hold stock on all sheet sizes and thicknesses in distribution centres across Canada and the USA. Call us for price and lead times.
Applications for Molded Fiberglass Grating
Molded Fiberglass Grating is excellent for use in heavy traffic areas, such as outdoor walkways on drilling platforms, in WWTP water treatment plants, in livestock facilities and anywhere you require secure and durable walking surfaces. Molded Fiberglass Grating comes with anti-slip surfaces as an important safety feature in walkways where moisture is present. Molded Fiberglass Grating has a large open area, and is not comfortable for bare feet. We recommend Pultruded Grating for any place that people will be walking in bare feet, such as waterparks or swimming pools.

Molded Fiberglass Grating 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.
