Wastewater and Water treatment plants historically used grating, stair treads, railing, ladders and structural platforms made from traditional materials (steel, galvanized steel, aluminum and wood). The popularity in these materials is not driven by the product that would provide the safest or longest lasting service life but the availability and initial product cost. While these traditional materials have been used in wastewater plant applications over 100 years, fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) products have only been available for nearly five decades
