Pultruded Grating

Fiberglass Pultruded Grating

Pultrusion technology is a manufacturing process which produces uniform cross-sectionally shaped glass-fiber reinforced polymer composite profiles.

These profiles are designed to compete with the strength properties of traditional metal grating structures, but offer the inherent environmental benefits that come with using fiberglass.

The fiberglass reinforced polymer matrix is ideal for corrosive environments and greatly reduces the maintenance required over the life-time of the grating.

Through an automated manufacturing process, pultrusion produces constant, cross-sectionally shaped profiles of glass fiber reinforced polymer composites.

This means it can compete with traditional metallic profiles such as steel and aluminum for strength and weight bearing loads, yet, unlike its metal counterparts.

Assembled with “I,” “T,” and “HL” shaped pultruded bearing bars and interlocked with pultruded solid rods or tubes, our pultruded grating provides lasting performance and structural integrity in either a two- or three-part interlock system.  

Available in a range of shapes, thicknesses, cross-bar assemblies, and surfaces, our pultruded grating can carry a higher load and withstand greater impact than molded grating. All our molded fiberglass grating is ISO 9001:2000 Certified and meets the highest international standards.

Our pultruded grating remains lightweight and nearly maintenance-free. Contact us for more information!

Pultruded Grating Details

At about one-fourth the weight of steel, Fastec International’s pultruded fiberglass grating can easily be lifted and moved by hand, making it easy to install on-site, as well as less expensive to ship. Once on-site, our pultruded FRP grating can be cut with commercial power tools and installed without the heavy equipment required to move steel or other traditional building materials. Please see our Assembly page for more information.

The Benefits of Pultruded FRP Grating:

Extremely High Loaded Strength
Our pultrusion process produces continuous lengths of reinforced polymer structural shapes with constant cross-sections, and our glass fiber rovings, mats, and veils provide greater tensile strength as well as improved surface finishing.

Impact Resistant
Unlike metallic grating, which will deform and need replacement, our pultruded FRP grating allows for repeated deflections without any permanent damage.

Anti-Corrosion, Attractive, & Low Maintenance
Inherent properties in our pultruded grating, like corrosion/rust resistance from high resin content, and UV resistance means a longer lifespan for your applications.

Lightweight & Easy to Install
At about one-fourth the weight of steel, our pultruded grating can easily be lifted and moved by hand, making it easy to install on-site.

Non-Conductive & Non-Sparking
Perfectly suited for electrically hazardous locations or conditions, our pultruded grating has inherent insulating properties that reduce the risk of electrical shock. It is also well-suited for many applications where sparks can trigger explosion or fire due to combustible gases build-up.

Anti-Fire
All of our resin systems have a Class 1 flame spread rating of 25 or less per ASTM E84.

Anti-Slip Surface
With multiple surfacing options, our pultruded grating can offer superior protection and maximum slip resistance designed specifically for your application.

Chemical & UV Resistant
Our polymer reinforced matrix can be formulated to meet all your demanding chemical and environmental conditions.

Applications:

  • Cooling Towers (Stick Built, Modular, and Reconstruction)
  • Marine
  • Recreation & Waterparks
  • Water & Wastewater
  • Oil & Gas

Molded Grating

Fastec International Molded FRP Grating

Our molded grating is produced in an open, heated mold system, through a a process that creates corrosion-resistance and bi-directional strength.

Continuous fiberglass roving is laid in the mold in alternating layers and wetted with a resin uniquely suited to the requirements of each custom application.

We offer a wide range of panel sizes, thicknesses, and mesh patterns, as well as colors.

Molded fiberglass grating provides a cost effective solution and long
lasting performance for many industrial and recreational applications.

Fiberglass offers superior strength and durability in corrosive environments compared to traditional metal grating.

Molded grating is constructed in one piece from continuous fiberglass rovings and a wide range of premium polyesters or vinyl ester resins.

A unique three step weaving process ensures that all glass reinforcements are lined up in the center of bars and protected by the outer resin layers. All grating is tested by independent third-party companies to testing standards set forth by the Fiberglass Grating Manufacturers Council.

The Benefits of Molded FRP Grating:

High Loaded Strength
Our continuous fiberglass strand alternating layers and one-piece construction distributes loads to bi-directional bars for greater tensile strength.

Impact Resistant
Unlike metallic grating, which will deform and need replacement, our molded fiberglass grating allows for repeated deflections without any permanent damage.

Anti-Corrosion, Attractive, & Low Maintenance
Inherent properties in our molded grating, like corrosion/rust resistance from high resin content, and molded-in color and UV resistance means freedom from painting and/or coating, as well as a longer lifespan for your applications.

Lightweight & Easy to Install
At about one-fourth the weight of steel, a full panel of our molded grating can easily be lifted and moved by two people, as well as readily cut to fit your applications using a commercial saw instead of industrial-grade equipment.

Non-Conductive & Non-Sparking
Perfectly suited for electrically hazardous locations or conditions, our molded grating has inherent insulating properties that reduce the risk of electrical shock. It is also well-suited for many applications where sparks can trigger explosion or fire due to combustible gases build-up.

Decking

Fastec International FRP Decking

FasDek™ is Fastec International’s Fiberglass Decking solution. Manufactured in Fastec’s engineer approved facility using the highest quality resins and meeting CTI Standard 137 and 152.

FasDek™ Fiberglass Deck Panels are easily installed with simple carpenter tools, and lightweight, saving on installation costs. Panels do not rot or corrode, so they will last for years.

Fiberglass decking does not warp over time, and does not retain water. Fiberglass is the material of choice across the world for cooling tower construction, because of its ability to withstand enormous amounts of water without deteriorating or leaching over time. If the old plywood decking is rotted, why replace it with the same thing?

From industrial cooling towers to recreational and marine areas, Fastec’s versatile, attractive, and long-lasting fiberglass decking is easy to install and stands up to the elements. With no rotting, chipping, rusting, or mildewing, your deck will stand the test of time and hold up to heavy foot traffic without showing age like wood, steel, or aluminum decking.

Choose FasDek™ for the ultimate in safety, with a no-slip, true four-part epoxy surface, and rugged, industrial performance.
