10 Top Uses for FRP Grating

Fiberglass-reinforced plastic (FRP) grating from Bedford is used worldwide in hundreds, perhaps thousands, of applications and industries. After all, FRP grating is more resilient and impact resistant than aluminum or steel grating. It has a very high strength-to-weight ratio — less than half the weight of steel — so it’s easier to handle and less expensive to transport.

Bedford PROGrid® molded grating products and PROGrate® pultruded grating products are available in a variety of safety colors and can include anti-skid coating. They have excellent load-supporting capability, even when covering long spans. And, of course, Bedford fiberglass-reinforced plastic grating systems are corrosion resistant, fire resistant and won’t rust, warp, or conduct electricity.

Installation is easy, too. In addition to the light weight, Bedford FRP grating installs with just ordinary tools — no welding needed! You can also use our pre-assembly service and kitted shipments to save even more time.

In short, it’s no wonder you can find FRP grating solutions in use for walkways, platforms, catwalks, stair treads, trench covers and much more. But of all the many uses, what are the most popular applications for Bedford fiberglass grating systems? Let’s take a look.
