Fiberglass grating is an increasingly popular material used by engineers. It has a wide range of applications from walkways to safety handrails and is known for its durability, heat resistance, and low maintenance. In this blog post, we’re going to explore the top five benefits of using fiberglass grating in engineering projects.

Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) can be used in a number of markets in a number of ways. It is recently gaining light because it is easy to work with and saves a great deal of money in the long run. While the decision to choose FRP may seem logical, let’s analyze some reasons you may NOT want to buy FRP.

While food and beverage facilities already have their own unique set of regulations when it comes to cleanliness and sanitation, the wine industry has an additional motivator: the purity of their wine. According to Emile Peynaud, “Cleanliness is a basic condition for quality. The whole of enological science would be to no avail if the work itself were done in places that were dirty.” Consistent quality routes from consistency in the beginning of the process. You cannot have a consistently quality wine if your winery is not always clean. In addition to cleanliness, employees can affect consistency. One of the best way to retain employees is to care for them on the job. By making sure your facility is safe, you will experience increased employee retention.

Innovative uses for fiberglass reinforced plastics sometimes present themselves unexpectedly which was the case with our new Electrically Non-Conductive Fencing product.
As communities grow, the need for larger substations increases. Traditionally, growing substations would require expanding the fenced-in area. Purchasing more land can be costly, and the availability can be limited. Also, grounding the fence is required for traditional materials which can be very expensive. Because of these high costs and limitations, substation owners have started searching for an alternative way to fence substations.

Outdoor stairs require tedious maintenance and can be very expensive. There are a variety of different traditional materials to choose from including wood, metal, and concrete to use in stair application.
Hotels, apartment complexes, and various commercial properties struggle with the nature of these materials. Wood rots and splits. Metal becomes slippery and corrodes. Concrete cracks and crumbles. Plus, metal and concrete are heavier materials making delivery and installation an expensive, long process.

Slips and falls are some of the leading causes of workplace injury suits. They cost companies millions of dollars each year. The costs, which include lost work time, lost productivity, lost production, training of new employees, workers’ compensation claims, as well as many other expenses, quickly add up.
