The need to control construction costs without sacrificing safety and durability has made fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) grating a popular option to replace traditional materials like steel, aluminum, and wood. FRP grating comes in several varieties, each with its own unique characteristics. However, all Fibergrate FRP products share some characteristics:
These advantages contribute to FRP gratings’ versatility across numerous applications, especially where safety and weight ratings are crucial factors to consider. For jobs featuring demanding loads and stressors, heavy duty FRP grating materials—also called High Load grating—is engineered for even higher performance.
- Lightweight with low installation costs
- Corrosion resistant, fire retardant, and non-conductive
- High strength-to-weight ratio with a long service life
In this blog post, we will explore what a load rating is and delve into the characteristics of regular FRP grating compared to heavy duty FRP grating. We will also compare the performance of heavy duty FRP with steel for similar applications and discuss various scenarios where heavy duty FRP may be the optimal choice.

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.

Long Service Life,
The Reversing Falls are a unique and beautiful phenomenon created by the collision of the Bay of Fundy and the Saint John River in New Brunswick, Canada. At low tide the river empties into the bay causing a series of rapids and whirlpools, a truly natural spectacle.
Tourist Attractions Repairs,
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.
