Fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating paired with pedestals has become a popular choice for architects, engineers, and DIYers when it comes to transforming spaces. FRP gratings’ lightweight, durable, and corrosion-resistant properties make them ideal for a wide range of applications, and the pedestals allow for reduced preparation time, are adaptable, and allow for drainage. This article will highlight four state-of-the-art projects where FRP grating used with pedestals has played a pivotal role. From grand hotels with stunning water fountains to industrial facilities requiring reliable flooring solutions, these projects demonstrate the versatility and effectiveness of FRP materials in enhancing the functionality and aesthetics of various spaces. Discover the innovative applications and success stories that showcase the power of FRP in transforming environments.

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.
A beautiful dock that will stay beautiful…yeah right… It’s a tale as old as time, and some part of us actually believes it within the first couple years of installation. Even if you invest your time and money into regular dock maintenance, your dock will eventually become a weathered mess.
Skandi Africa was named the “Ship of the Year 2015” at the Nor-Shipping exhibition in Osla, Norway this past June – a title earned through careful design and selection of materials. It is a state-of-the-art vessel specially designed for subsea operation duties to support the oil and gas industry (Teigland, 2015). It was planned with a “high focus on sea-keeping capabilities, excellent station keeping performance and low fuel consumption” (DOF Vessel Skandi Africa Named "Ship of The Year 2015" in Norway, 2015).
With our corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant located in North Texas, we have seen and felt some of the destruction caused by the recent flooding. The immediate impact has had some devastating outcomes, but there are ways to reduce the future damage of this flooding as well as safe guard against floods to come.
Can you imagine a world in which decking products were able to withstand the surge of a hurricane? Seems impossible, though, right? Nope. Fibergrate Composite Structures has products that have done just that!
With the help of designer Foster McIntosh, Fibergrate materials were used in the Pineapple Bluff Dock and Lift in Green Turtle Cay, Abaco Bahamas. The goal for this project was to build a dock and boat lift that would provide recreational access to the Sea of Abaco. In addition to recreational access, the boat and dock lift has been tested in Hurricane Irene, and was able to withstand storm surges to the structure.
