FRP Pultruded Gratings are famous for high strength, corrosion resistance, long life and safety in the most difficult environment. These also adhere to the highest international standards. Ventura Fiber Tech design ensures that reliable services are possible for several years as they are assembled from interlocking pultruded profiles thus outperforming the traditional materials they replace.
Being lightweight, easy to put together and install, good performance and cost effectiveness makes it a better choice than steel in several major industries.
An entire collection of gratings is offered to satisfy wide-ranging industrial needs and high load requirements for safety at work.
Unlike molded grating which has equal strength in both directions, FRP Pultruded grating is stronger in the longitudinal direction as it is fabricated from bearing bars & interlocking rod and groove bar assemblies. For that reason FRP Pultruded grating sizes are specified by width (the cross-rod dimension) x length or span (the bearing bar dimension).
The bearing bars used for FRP Industrial grating are pultruded I bars and T Sections and these bars are 25mm (1 inch) and 38mm (1.5 inches) deep. For the 25mm (1 inch) deep grating the cross-rod assembly is used horizontally, whilst for 38mm (1.5 inches) and 50mm (2 inches) deep products cross rods are used vertically.
The I bar assemblies are offered in standard size with 40%, 50% and 60% open areas whereas the T bar assemblies have 17%, 33% & 50% open areas as standard. Nomenclature use to describe each industrial grating style refers to its bearing bar style (I or T), its open area and its metric depth.
I 1560 = I bearing bar: 60% open area: 38mm deep
T 1033 = T bearing bar: 33% open area: 25mm deep>

Applicable for our gratings we have special support angles which are concreted into the basement directly.
Easy to assemble without any special tools. A pultruded Fiberglass angle can be used as a frame for all Fiberglass gratings.
Stainless steel fixing sets can be used for all standard Fiberglass gratings and support constructions. To prevent Fiberglass gratings perfectly against lifting and sliding away each panel should be fixed on at least four points.
Easy to assemble and providing high safety. Fiberglass Step Treads fulfil high safety standards. They are produced in the same way as the Fiberglass Profile Gratings and the Fiberglass Molded Gratings with additionally reinforced and highlighted edges.
To complement any project design, Ventura Fiber Tech FRP Gratings are made available in variety of colors. Standard colors available for FRP Grating: Dark Grey, Yellow and Green. Custom colors are made available upon request.
