GRP Grating.

Installations are mush faster with GRP Gratings thus making it far more cost effective, GRP is lighter than steel reducing the need for lifting equipment, it’s non-sparking eliminating the fire risks associated with hot works on site. GRP Grating requires very little maintenance and will outlast steel equivalents


Captrad produces all types of GRP Gratings / Fibreglass Grating from Moulded GRP Gratings and Pultruded GRP Gratingwhich provides an efficient and cost-effective solution for all GRP Flooring, walkways and decking areas requiring long term performance in very aggressive and corrosive/chemical environments.

GRP Grating is manufactured from glass reinforced thermoset resins, Captrads GRP Grating is an excellent choice to replace conventional steel and aluminium grating systems in such aggressive/hazardous environments.

GRP Grating can be used in a variety of work places - Network Rail, Platforms, Trench Covers. They are very adaptable, strong and lightweight

Captrads fibreglass grating has a density of one-quarter that of steel and two-thirds that of aluminium which considerably simplifies installation and handling of our GRP grating panels. Unlike metallic grating, moulded/pultruded grating can be easily cut on-site using only hand tools, our open mesh flooring allows a variety of tools to be used when fabricating.

The ease of handling fibreglass grating makes it the ideal grating to install in difficult access areas as personnel can carry it. Fibreglass Grating due to its light weight falls easily within H&S limits.

Along with GRP Grating, we also offer a full range of GRP Structural Profiles that can support and complement any fabricated structure. We can assist with design and offer a fabrication service thus you will receive a finished working product

Fiberglass Moulded Grating has Load bearing bars in both directions of the panel allowing for use without continuous side support. This allows our grating panels to be fabricated whilst retaining their structural properties. All our open mesh flooring works very well with the structural profiles we supply (see pultrusion section). Captrad Composites has the capabilities to supply GRP Grating worldwide from the UK, Europe, UAE, Gulf Union Countries, America to Australia.
