GRP Moulded Grating

ll grigliato in PRFV - materiale Plastico Rinforzato con Fibre di Vetro – viene utilizzato per la costruzione di passerelle, scale, piattaforme, griglie di ventilazione, recinzioni, e in molte altre applicazioni dove è richiesta una superficie resistente agli agenti atmosferici, alla corrosione e all’usura.

GRP gratings

Composite gratings offer an optimal combination of strength, durability and lightness, making them ideal for a variety of industrial and architectural applications.

This type of grating is used for the construction of walkways, stairs, platforms, ventilation grids, fences, and in many other applications where a surface resistant to weathering, corrosion and wear is required. In fact, GRP composite offers excellent resistance to chemicals, making it suitable for use in aggressive environments where a conventional steel grating might degrade over time. GRP grating is also highly valued for its light weight and ease of installation and maintenance.

Open Moulded GRP Grating | Production Process

Glass Fibre Reinforced Plastic, commonly referred to as GRP, is a composite material consisting of a polyester or vinylester matrix resin reinforced with glass fibre. Moulded GRP gratings are produced using an open, heated mould and a wet lay-up technique with the continuous addition of glass fibres, chemical additives and pigment. The components are inserted into the mould in alternating layers wetted with resin. At the end of the forming process, the gratings are cooled and then removed from the mould. This production method results in a grating characterised by high bi-directional mechanical strength, both transverse and longitudinal, as well as resistance to corrosion and chemicals. Other important characteristics of GRP grating are its light weight, about 50 per cent lighter than steel, and its dielectric property, i.e. to act as an insulator when current flows.
