Lancashire, United Kingdom, August 11th 2011 – GRP, or Glass Reinforced Plastic, offers a beneficial alternative to metal and resin gratings. It can be used in a variety of different settings and locations because of its corrosive resistance, its strength, and its flexibility as well as a range of other sought after benefits. It is fire retardant and slip resistant too which make it perfect for use in public spaces as well as in industrial and commercial settings.

Items like GRP gratings are able to withstand even the toughest of environments. The reinforced plastic is chemical and corrosion resistant so it can be used in industrial settings and it can be used both indoors and outdoors. It retains its solid integrity and, what’s more, it is also highly resistant to impacts which again make GRP gratings the ideal solution for even the most difficult of circumstances and the most difficult of locations.

It is a very flexible polymer and is easy to fabricate. This means that GRP gratings and more decorative GRP Hand Lay Up and GRP Spray Up products can be created in virtually any dimensions and they are less than half the weight of a comparably sized steel grating. Even once the manufacturing process has completed, the gratings can be further fabricated easily and quickly using circular saws and other tools.

GRP gratings can be sprayed and painted so that they offer the desirable look and design as well as strength and durability benefits. GRP Hand Lay Up and GRP Spray Up provides a range of colours while still ensuring that the GRP material itself retains its strength and durability.
