aN ARC FIBREGLASS GRATINGS & STAIR TREADS ARC is an established name in composites and has been providing complete system of FRP gratings for walkways, platforms, stars, bridges, grids as tower packing supports, effluent trench cover, swimming pools & other allied usages of ‘moulded and pultruded type gratings, since a decade. ARC offers system flexibility to optimise cost. These are the ideal solution for corrosion problems faced in industrial environments. It forms the right replacement for steel or aluminium gratings used in highly corrosive atmosphere. The ARC gratings outlast stee! 20 to 1 times and itis a long term investment, where frequent grating and walkaway replacement costs are unacceptable, ‘There are 2 types of gratings; ‘Moulded Gratings & Treads Pultruded Gratings Pultruded and Moulded FRP Grating ‘Structure [Eccentric [Monolithic [Monolithic [Higher INormal [Corrosion Protection [Higher [Higher ‘Support Direction [Span Side Only [Both sides (Section Accuracy (Good [Normal Fire Retardency (Good (Good [UV Protection (Good (Good [Anti Skid Treatment [Possible [Possible [Scope of Construction Limited [Flexible [Glass Content [60% to 70% [40% to 50% Material Options ‘+ RESINS Resin Base | Resin Code Description ‘Application Orthophthalie ‘OP Moderate corrosion resistance and fire | This grating is recommended for use in Polyester Resin retardant, flame spread rating ASTM | water/wastewater or air-aging E84 Class 1, 25 or less.

Continuous fiberglass roving ‘winding in altemating layers is thoroughly wetted with resi, ‘When the load is applied to the grating / tread bars, the weight is transferred to adjoining cross bars and bearing bars for even load distribution. ‘The cost-effective panels allow for efficient on-site cutting 10 minimize grating / tread waste and load bearing bars in both directions allow for use without continuous side support. ‘The ARC moulded fibreglass grating / tread is significantly lighter in weight than metallic gratings / treads and the high resin content provides long, virtually maintenance-free performance. A higher safety factor is achieved by designing higher glass content at the bottom of the grating / tread for greater tensile strength. ‘The moulded gratings / treads are © Corrosion Resistant Fire Retardant: available with Class I fire rating Bidirectional Load Bearing Electronically Transparent: does not affect electromagnetic or Radio wave frequency Lightweight Low in Conductivity Low in Maintenance Easy to Install Cost Effective Superior Ergonomics: gives comfort while walking or standing ‘The moulded gratings / treads are made up of fibreglass rovings combined with a choice of various thermosetting resins. All the resins contain a protective UV inhibitor. The gratings / treads have a concave profile on the upper surface, which is skid resistant. However, on request, additionally a slip resistant gritted top surface can also be provided. ‘The grating / tread shall be one-piece construction with the tops of the bearing bars and cross bars in the same plane, Avail ble in green, orange, yellow, black & grey colours. Accessories for Moulded Gratings & Treads a). Angle The ARCpultruded fibreglass Angle provides a strong, firm base for bearing bars. 1 Panel Installation ~ Typically all fasteners used, are Stainless Steel 316. The grating / tread fasteners have low profiles, which eliminates tripping hazards. We recommend using at least $ clips on a panel of size 1000 mm x 3000 ‘mm, Smaller panels must be secured with no fewer than 4 clips. seen ec T ‘Type J Clips For attaching grating tread to supports for moderate z Toads. ‘Type C Clips For joining two unsupported edges ifneeded.
