Slip-resistance with glassfibre gratings
For safety's sake.
Fibre gratings are as strong as conventional steel grates and are now available with an efficient non-slip surface that gives you a really good reason to consider replacing your steel grates with fibre gratings.
The fibre gratings' properties make them an ideal alternative to conventional steel grates.
- Fiber gratings weigh down to one third of the weight of a steel grate
- Strength-wise, they can be compared 1:1 to a steel grate at the same height
- Fibre gratings can be cut on site without finishing of any kind
- Anti-slip fibre gratings are safe even if they are wet from water, oil or the like.
- Fibre gratings are ergonomically correct, as they 'spring'
- Fiber gratings are chemical-resistant
- They are not electrically conductive
- The lifetime of a fiber grating is considerably longer than in a steel grate (no corrosion)
Real's fibreglass gratings are - as the only ones on the market that are IMO-certified (fire and smoke development) and produced in the EU
They are also an optimal solution as a working platform or landing fibre grating, since they are both non-slip and spring at the same time. This makes them extremely comfortable to work and stand on. The fibre gratings are very flexible and can be easily adapted to the surroundings. We provide fibre gratings either in whole sheets or cut to size.
The anti-slip surface on our fibre gratings is made of hardened stone fragments. These stone fragments are cast into the natural concave surface of the grate and provide optimum friction in areas exposed to oil, water, grease, algae, ice, leaf fall and so on. The fact that the stones are in a concave curvature means that the fuse is permanent, even if the surface is exposed to hard wear. The stone fragments therefore ensure that our fibreglass gratings are non-slip in all weather conditions and in all types of environments.
Fibreglass grating as landing / work platform
As a working platform or landing is a fiber grating an ideal solution for several reasons.
Landings are often places you step up to to perform a task of short or long duration. Therefore, the flexibility of the fibre gratings is a major ergonomic advantage, while it is 100 percent anti slip. In addition, the fibre gratings can be ordered with a yellow 'nose' in order to optimize their visual safety. The fibreglass gratings are available with both open and closed surfaces.
About the product
Our fibre gratings have many advantages. They are characterised with, among other things, that they are extremely lightweight, which makes it easier to mount them. Even though our fibreglass gratings are extremely lightweight, it does not mean that they are fragile. On the contrary. They are highly resistant and durable.
Fiber gratings can be mounted in several different locations. The most obvious places to mount the fibre gratings are stairs, walkways, landings, ship decks, bridges, production lines, laundry halls, chemical rooms, helidecks and other places where traditionally galvanized steel grates have been used.
Fibreglass as a material has a number of properties that make it extremely attractive. It is, for example, resistant to many chemicals, both acids and bases. In addition, the material is fire-resistant and self-extinguishing. This has also made it possible for our fibre gratings - as the only ones in the world - to have become IMO certified. This rigorous certification makes them approved for use on ships where fire criteria are very tough. Safety-wise, the fibreglass by itself of course also contributes to preventing slip and fall accidents, as it is permanently anti-slip.
Avoid tripping accidents with fibre gratings
In case you need gratings, we recommend fibre gratings, as these can prevent trips and falls. Most of us have tried walking on a steel grating or similar after it has rained. Even when the steel gratings are made with a form of anti-slip, they will be slippery when wet - and after a short wear these 'peaks' will also be worn round and then we are back to where we started from. Therefore, the risk of slipping and falling on a fibre grating is significantly less than on a steel grating. Even though it has rained!
At Real Safety, we are experts in non-slip fibre gratings
There are not many who know more about anti-slip products than us. Our knowledge of fibreglass is both large and broad, and is rooted in many years of experience from both the offshore and marine industries.
