Our molded fiberglass is a strong mesh grating panel which allows efficient on-site cutting to minimize grating waste. Molded in
one piece with a plain concave non-slip walking surface, it is the chemical resistant flooring choice for many industrial applications.
Load bearing bars in both directions allow for use without continuous side support.
Molded fiberglass grating is significantly lighter in weight than metallic gratings. The high resin content (65%) provides long
maintenance free performance. Molded Stair Tread Covers are available.
