VGBA Certified
Drainage Gratings

Bedford’s PROGrate® pultruded FRP grating has been tested and has met the specifications set forth by the Virginia Graeme Baker Act (VGBA) for use in VGBA compliant drain systems. This act ensures that the drainage systems are able to withstand heavy duty tasks. We also offer molded and pultruded grating for food processing applications.

VGBA CERTIFIED PRODUCTS
An independent test laboratory has tested PROGrate® pultruded grating in accordance with ASME A112.19.8.a – 2008, section 3.2 (Ultraviolet Light Exposure), which includes ASTM D256 for izod impact and ASTM D638 for tensile strength after being subjected to accelerated UV weathering.

Completed test results have shown that PROGrate® grating has a K factor of 1.1 when calculated from section 3.2.2.3 (Performance Requirements) of the ASME A112.19.8.a – 2008 specification, which is the test method for grating covering pool drains. All of Bedford’s grating products are available as stock panels or can be fabricated to size.

PROGrate® WT 10-18, I 10-40 and I 15-40 are ideal for fabricating VGBA-compliant drain systems around pools and spas. See our Pultruded Grating section for product details.
