In our last post, we told you 5 things you need to know about FRP Grating. For those of you that are not familiar with Fibre Reinforced plastic/polymer grating, this article will give you a simplified summary and helpful background on FRP before you dive into reading this post.
Pultruded FRP Gratings
Pultrusion is a continuous moulding process that produces products of the uniform cross section such as I beams, Channels, Flat bars, Rods, & other FRP profiles.
Pultruded FRP gratings are manufactured using the following process:
Stainless steel "M" Clips:
Clips for FRP grating, such as M clips are designed to clamp two of the FRP grating load bars to the supporting member. This provides excellent holding capacity as it restrains movement in both directions. "M" clips are available for both Standard and Minimesh grating.
Stainless steel "C" Clips
FRP pultrusion profiles technology is a manufacturing process which produces uniform cross-sectionally shaped glass-fiber reinforced polymer composite profiles. These profiles are designed to compete with the strength properties of traditional metal grating structures, but offer the inherent environmental benefits that come with using fiberglass. The fiberglass reinforced polymer matrix is ideal for corrosive environments and greatly reduces the maintenance required over the life-time of the grating.
FRP roof tile is standard-sized FRP roofing sheets having a roofing tile-like appearance over the surface. These sheets mimic the ceramic or other types of tiles to provide a traditional look to the buildings.
What is Tile Roofing?
Perhaps the most significant upside of tile roofing is its lifespan. It exceeds all other roof materials when it comes to its durability and longevity. Some buildings in Europe have tile roofs that lasted for centuries. To be more conservative in our approach, a well-cared-for and well-maintained modern tile roofing can last an average of 50 years.
Regardless of the type of tile roofing used, whether it’s cement, terra cotta, concrete, slate, or fiber-reinforced tiles, this type of roofing material can withstand the test of time. The key is to keep it well-maintained and ensure it is properly installed.
