Pultruded FRP Grating
Pultruded Fiberglass Grating is the long-lasting solution for rugged applications.
Most types of metal grating have considerable down-sides; they corrode, wear down quickly, cause maintenance headaches and downtimes, and are costly to install.
Fiberman sells high-strength pultruded FRP bar grating which can be designed and used like traditional metal grates, but with all the many benefits of fiberglass. FRP grating is especially useful for replacing steel grating or aluminum grating in corrosive environments or where other types of gratings require frequent replacements.
Pultruded grating panels are available in 1″, 1-1/2″, and 2″ deep thicknesses in a variety of different profiles. We also sell Heavy duty grating in panel sizes up to 2-1/2″ deep. While T-Bar profiles provide more surface area, I-Bar profiles allow more open space between the bearing bars. The bearing bars are separated by cross-rods spaced every 6 inches. Unlike molded grating, which is strong in both directions, pultruded grating only provides strength in the direction of the bearing bars. Take a look at our video on the differences between molded and pultruded grating:
Have a look at our Grating Selection Chart for an overview of the most common profiles.
You can also cut FRP grating yourself. See how easy it is, with our online video: How to Cut FRP Grating.
Applications for Pultruded Fiberglass Grating

Contact us for complete load tables and properties for any profile you are interested in. We can also profile you with advice on the best profile for your application.
Standard panel sizes have 3′, 4′ and 5′ widths and 8′, 10′, 12′ and 20′ lengths. Custom panels sizes are also available. Pultruded Grating can be made to exact sizes to eliminate waste and fabrication costs in the field. The maximum panel weight is 500 lbs. and the maximum panel size is 60″ x 240″.
FRP Grating panel hold downs are used to keep grating panels stationary. There are three types of grating clip for fiberglass grating.
Weldable 316L stainless steel saddle clips are available for all grating series except T-1800 and T-3500. *Bolts are priced separately from the saddle clips.
Weldable 316L stainless steel insert clips are available for all grating series except T-1800 and T-3500. *Bolts are priced separately from the hold-down.
Insert Clips for T-1800 and T-3500
Weldable 316L stainless steel insert clips are available for series T-1800 and T-3500 only. *Bolts are priced separately from the hold-down. (All bolts are 1/4-20 x 1-1/4″, cap head, 316L stainless steel.)
FRP Grating Panel Connectors are generally only used at midspan to assist in transferring load from section to section. See the diagrams below for recommended configurations.
There are three types of panel connector grating clips for fiberglass grating.
Saddle Clip Panel Connector Hold Downs

Applications for Pultruded Fiberglass Grating
Pultruded 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. Pultruded Fiberglass Grating comes with anti-slip surfaces as an important safety feature in walkways where moisture is present. Pultruded 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.

Pultruded 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. Pultruded Fiberglass Grating is an essential part of building structures that are “electronically transparent” and do not interfere with radio frequency transmissions.
