Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) is a composite material made of thermosetting plastic resin reinforced by fine glass fibers. FRP is hailed for its unique qualities, such as its strength, light weight, low maintenance, durability, and ability to withstand most weather conditions. Archatrak FRP grating can be used in a variety of applications such as green roofs, synthetic turf roof decks, and commercial boardwalks and pathways.
High Corrosion Resistance
Archatrak FRP grating lasts several times longer than steel or galvanized steel grating. In highly corrosive applications, metal products will often deteriorate in a few years, whereas Archatrak FRP grating panels will last much longer, typically in excess of 25 years. In fact, FRP grating’s resistance to highly corrosive materials like seawater makes it one of the very few structures that can be used in marine installations.
High Strength, Lightweight
Archatrak FRP Grating System offers the strength of steel at just ¼ the weight.
Easy to Install
Because of its lightweight and simple structure, FRP grating does not require heavy duty machinery for installation, and can be easily assembled with few people.
Easy to Maintain
The durability and corrosion resistance of Archatrak FRP grating means practically zero maintenance after installation, saving you money year after year!
Slips and falls are the second leading cause of industrial accidents. While steel becomes slippery when oily or wet, Archatrak FRP grating remains safe even when wet.
Due to its structural fiberglass fabrication with flame retardant phenolic resin, Archatrak FRP grating is able to withstand direct exposure to fire for an extended duration without compromising major structural integrity.
Archatrak FRP Grating Systems are used to build elevated green roofs, synthetic turf roof decks, elevated stone decks, boardwalks and other commercial pathways such as docks and jetty decks.
The excellent corrosion resistance of FRP combined with its strength, impact resistance and extended life compared to more traditional materials such as galvanized steel, aluminum, stainless steel or wood, makes it one of the most useful, versatile and economical solutions available.
