Safe-T-Span phenolic pultruded grating

Safe-T-Span gratingDesigned to meet all U.S. Coast Guard Level 2 performance criteria for safe escape areas, Fibergrate Safe-T-Span Phenolic pultruded grating offers an alternative to heavy, maintenance-intensive metallic grating in offshore construction.

Safe-T-Span Phenolic’s resistance to flame spread (flame spread rating of 5) and low smoke and toxic fume emissions make it ideal for offshore use where safety is a priority.

This advanced grating offers a number of features that are in line with the needs of the offshore application:

light weight (about one-fifth to one-third the weight of steel) combined with high strength;

corrosion resistance affording long and virtually maintenance-free life in harsh saltwater environments;

electrical nonconductivity; and

thermal stability that minimizes expansion and contraction.

Slip-resistant surfaces enhance safety under slick conditions.

Fibergrate Composite Structures is a leading innovator in structural products made of corrosion-resistant FRP.

The inventor of molded fiberglass grating, Fibergrate applies nearly four decades of FRP experience to meeting the needs of its customers.

In addition to the industry’s broadest range of products -- including grating, floor plate, safety ladders, handrail systems, work platforms, stair treads, tread covers, screening, and structural shapes -- the company offers turnkey design, engineering, fabrication, and installation services.
