Molded fiberglass grating is available in either square or rectangular mesh, providing optimal customer selection. A premium product, molded fiberglass grating combines fiberglass rovings with thermosetting resin to form a strong, one piece molded panel.
Significantly lighter than metallics, molded fiberglass grating is easy to install. The square mesh pattern of molded grating allows efficient cutting of the panels so that a variety of flooring layouts can be accommodated with a minimum of waste. Rectangular molded fiberglass mesh is often used for walkways and trench covers in many industrial applications. Molded Fiberglass Grating is designed to provide the ultimate in reliable performance, even in the most demanding conditions. This advanced molded fiberglass is proven superior in applications requiring bidirectional strength, corrosion resistance and long, maintenance-free life. Available in either standard meniscus or optional grit-top walking surfaces, molded fiberglass offers outstanding skid-resistance for added worker safety.
MOLDED GRATING RESIN SYSTEMS
Peterson offers its fiberglass molded grating line in a choice of five resin systems, assuring a resin system suited to the unique requirements of each customer application.
Vi-CORR® (ORANGE OR GRAY) – A superior fiberglass molding resin available only from Fibergrate, Vi-Corr® was developed for reliable performance in the toughest environments. This proprietary fiberglass molding resin system formulation is the most chemically-resistant available today, offering outstanding resistance to a wide range of highly corrosive environments, ranging from caustic to acidic. In fact, no other fiberglass molding resin system can match Vi-Corr®’s performance in highly acidic environments. Offers as ASTM-E-84, flame spread of 25 or less. Vi-Corr® is also offered in a UL Classified resin formulation.
IFR (GREEN) – IFR is designed for industrial and chemical processing applications where corrosion resistance is important. This isophthalic polyester fiberglass molding resin formulation offers a flame spread rating of 25 or less per ASTM E-84. IFR is also offered in a UL Classified resin formulation.
XFR (GRAY) – This highly corrosion resistant molded fiberglass resin is recommended for use where fire potential is high. This proprietary molded fiberglass resin carries a flame spread rating of 10 or less, a level exceeded by no other resin system.
FGI (LIGHT GRAY) - Molded fiberglass grating is USDA-accepted for food processing applications, this isophthalic polyester resin system meets the unique requirements of the food and beverage industry. FGI carries a flame spread rating of 25 or less.
CORVEX® (YELLOW, GREEN OR GRAY)- An economical polyester fiberglass grating, Corvex® outperforms a number of competitive fiberglass grating products and meets the requirements for corrosion resistance found in light industrial and water/ wastewater applications. This fiberglass gratingalso offers a low flame spread rating of 25 or less.
CLIP ASSEMBLIES FOR MOLDED GRATING
Peterson offers specially designed fiberglass grating attachments and clips to both fasten panels together and to secure them to support structures. All clips are made of Type 316 Stainless Steel and are available in 1”, 1-1/2” and 2” sizes.
TYPE J HOLD DOWN CLIPS – For use in securing molded fiberglass grating panels to support frames.
TYPE M HOLD DOWN CLIPS – Used to secure the molded grating panels to a support using two adjacent grating bars for a secure fit.
TYPE G HOLD DOWN CLIPS – Designed to attach the molded grating to any structural member flange, 3/4” or smaller in thickness, with no drilling required.
TYPE F END PANEL CLIP – Provides a simplified method for joining the molded fiberglass side bars of panels that are butted end to end.
TYPE W – Designed to secure any molded fiberglass covered grating or FiberPlate to a structure.
