Molded Grating VS Pultruded Grating: Which one is better?

Posted by Javier Guillén on May 28, 2020 12:57:42 PM

To understand the differences between molded and pultruded grating, it is important to know exactly what Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) is. FRP is an alternative to traditional industrial materials, such as steel, concrete, and wood. It is made by combining resin with fiberglass. Resin formulations, resin proportions, and manufacturing techniques allow this product to be used as gratings, handrails, ladders, platforms, and custom engineered solutions. Often people ask, “What is the difference between molded and pultruded grating?” Fibergrate wants to help people make the right decision when it comes to choosing the right material for their next project. Some people might simply say: “Molded grating is a panel that has a square or rectangular top mesh whereas pultruded grating is composed by a series of parallel bars.” Is it really this simple? Please allow us to explain.

Customer Testimonial: A Pleasant Surprise After Hurricane Irma

Posted by Brittany Fossier on Nov 30, 2017 1:51:56 PM


This year has shown us some of the most destructive hurricanes.  Our hearts have collectively broken for all those affected. 

People build communities. Communities build cities, and cities build people.  Unfortunately, rebuilding these cities is not going to happen overnight.  It will be a process, a very long process, but those cities and the communities will come back stronger than ever. 

We are so happy Tim Raftery shared his testimonial with us about how his deck built with Fibergrate Micro-Mesh® Molded Grating survived Hurricane Irma and made his overall rebuilding experience that much easier.
