Meniscus Top FRP Grating
Meniscus top fiberglass grating creates a concave surface that provides slip-resistant footing for a wide range of industrial uses. Wet and oily conditions are best suited for the meniscus top FRP grating because of the security it provides.
For most applications, the meniscus top fiberglass grating is the standard coating for all molded gratings because it performs well in the case of many common spills.
Benefits of Meniscus Top Molded Grating
Meniscus coating applies a very thin substrate to the surface and the final bonding process helps it to stay hydrophobic and move most oils, waters and other liquids away from raised grating elements, so your staff can maintain their grip.
The best news of using meniscus top fiberglass grating is that you’ll get all the standard benefits for FRP grating, including:
- Significant protection against slips, slides and falls across wet, chemical and oily situations.
- Strength enough to take heavy loads repeatedly.
- Support for workers and equipment, putting less strain on both.
- Non-corrosive, non-conductive and non-sparking.
- Limited maintenance and cleaning needs, with no sandblasting, repainting or sanding in most use cases.
- Long-lasting due to ingrained resistance to a variety of chemicals, impacts and traffic.
Meniscus top fiberglass grating is designed to work in harsh environments where working conditions can become dangerous. From oil rigs on the ocean to wastewater treatment plants and chemical facilities, you’ll find a wide range of FRP grating that uses a meniscus coating.
The grating and FRP coating is available on most standard products that use FRP grading and surfaces. This includes ladders, walkways, catwalks, stairs, railing, panels and flooring. The protection is perfect for your overhead platforms and ramps that may have reduced visibility or tight corners.
Meniscus top molded grating is just one part of Marco Fiberglass’ commitment to producing safe products. We use this as well as many other resins and composites to address the needs of customers in the food and beverage, water and wastewater, chemical, oil, gas, ship and aerospace arenas.
How Is Meniscus Top Molded Grating Different?
The chief competitor to meniscus top molded grating is an integrally applied grit top. These grit tops use a variety of materials such as quartz and can be applied integrally. They provide significant resistant to slips but may not perform as well in oily situations.
Meniscus top fiberglass grating has a normal amount of corrosion resistance for an FRP product, though some integrated competitors and alternatives may have a higher degree of resistance. It tends to perform as well as other coatings when maintaining the electrical and thermal conductivity resistances.
By pairing a meniscus top FRP grating with exceptional resins including Isophthalic Polyesters, the meniscus coating will be able to meet the demands of many harsh environments.
