Fiberglass Reinforced Polymer(FRP) Molded Grating (also known to some as Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic Grating) is made with fiberglass as it’s reinforcement mixed with unsaturated polyester resin as the matrix. The resin is poured into a mold systematically with the fiberglass roving layer after layer to produce the desired thickness. These products combined through our special composite processing makes it have an absolute strength stronger than aluminum, reaching one third the strength as steel.

FRP Grating applications include, but are not limited to:
- Off Shore Oil Platforms
- Nature trails
- Work Platforms
- Marine Docks & Boat Decking
- Factories (Chemical; Production Line)
- Flooring in corrosive and/or slippery environments
- Trench Cover
- Sewage Treatment Plants
- Water Treatment Plants
- Electrical Power Plants
- Pulp and Paper Industry
Molded Grating typically has a square mesh pattern similar to a checker board whereas PULTRUDED grating is made from a series of Parallel Bars. Pultruded Grating consists of a series of parallel bearing bars. The bearing bars typically have a ‘T’ or ‘I’ shaped profile. The closer the bearing bars are together, the stronger the grating. Cross-rods are not intended to be applied in the span direction. Pultruded grating can only support weight in the direction of the bearing bars. The bearing bars in Pultruded Grating must traverse from support to support whereas Molded Grating is equally strong in both directions. Molded Grating panels can be rotated 90 degrees with the same support characteristics.
- Pedestrian Walkways & Ramps
- Decks and Patios
- Bridge Walkways
- Work Platforms
- Trench Covers

Handrails & Stairtreads
FRP Distributor Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Handrail Systems are safe. They are mostly made of pultruded profiles and gratings, they are corrosion resistant, extremely strong, maintenance free (the colors are part of the product (no painting required) and finally easy to install.
FRP Distributor’s Structural Shapes like Pultruded grating are processed in a similar way. They are manufactured in all shapes used for structural projects, ladders and so much more. They are manufactured in both vinyl ester and polyester or in any custom resin preferred by our clients..
- Work Platforms
- Commercial and Residential Marine Docks
- Piping systems
- Escape Chutes
- It can be made in any shape or form
FRP Distributor’s Fiberglass Reinforced plastic manhole covers are made with resin and continuous fiberglass, 100% free of heavy metal. They are light weight, easy to be installed and maintenance free.
They have very strong and resistant to heavy impact. They are silent when driven over and absorb vibration. They’re also inexpensive to replace when they go missing.
FRP Distributor Inc. manufacturers both standard molded and pultrued fibreglass gratings in phenolic resin that is U.S. Coast Guard approved. Our materials can be used in Transit Systems.
Our Blind Plate is made from SMC (sheet molding compounds) materials processed through a high temperature press. Our Blind Plates have been widely used for the disability walkways in railways and airports. Specialized double deck design provide a much much safer platform. The Blind Plate has high strength, anti impact, anti corrosion, longevity, and it’s not slippery and is also abrasion resistant.
