Explore Benefits of FRP Non-Slip Grating over Steel Gratingby Michael Griffin Michael
Be it industrial factories, commercial outlets, offices, homes or any other places, it is always important to make its flooring safe and secure for the people moving on the same. In most of the cases, people face severe accidents like slips and falls, and it actually become painful to recover from the same.
In order to eliminate the threats of these accidents, structural engineers started using FRP solutions to make the surface exceptionally safe for the workers. Although, steel is also used for grating solution but the kind of the result FRP offer is simply unmatchable. Let’s have a look at the benefits if using FRP made non-slip grating structures.
- Corrosion or Chemical Resistant
FRP made products withstand any and every possible deterioration that could be possible through environmental as well as chemical factors. Unlike any given traditional materials, FRP’s grating solutions do not corrode and thus businesses does not have to opt for regular maintenance. Another best thing is that these solutions can be exposed to splash, fumes, spills, continuous submersion as well as gases, but still they will maintain its integrity.
The FRP made solutions include a wide range of anti-skid profiles and they are not limited to only embedded grip, chequered plate and post-cure grit. The slip resistant surfaces are extremely durable and offer high level levels of slip resistance than steel. These grating systems make the surface incredibly safe for walking for the workers as well as even for the customers also.
- Impact Resistance
This is also one of the most important benefits of non-slip grating and they do not break under impact like conventional building materials. The availability of the glass mat in the pultruded section distributes the load of impact to safeguard damage to the surface and this even applies in zero temperatures.
Because of its fundamental structure and high concentration of iron, steel is usually magnetic. This means that the material cannot be used in the areas where there is a need of sensitive installations because magnetism in such area can turn out to be dangerous.
But at the same time, non-magnetic feature of FRP solutions like grating and access systems, can be used in the areas where the inherent magnetic properties of metallic grating not suitable.
Considering all these benefits, one can easily understand that why to choose FRP grating syst em instead of steel. Of course, steel is one of the most robust options but it lack behind FRP in many ways.
