Some of the Product Features that make FRP the Ideal Choice for your Oil & Gas Applications Include:

Little to No Maintenance

Lower Cost Over Lifetime of Product than Metal Gratings

Ability to Resist Corrosion - Saltwater, Drilling Fluids, Acids, Alkalis and Other Chemical Compounds

Flame Retardancy - All Gratings Meet or Exceed a Flame Spread of 25 and Range as Low as 5 (Based on the ASTM E-84 Standard)

Non-Conductivity – Helps to Reduce Dangerous Static Discharge

Slip Resistance – Whether a Meniscus Top or our Standard Integral Grit Top, All FRP Gratings Provide Excellent Slip Resistance

Ability to Absorb Impact – Unlike Metal the Elastic Properties Allow it to Absorb Impact with No Permanent Deformation

Light Weight – At One Third the Weight of Steel Installation and Service Costs are Greatly Reduced

FRP Products are Used in All Aspects of the Oil and Gas Industry from Drilling to Refining:

Land-based & Offshore Drilling Rigs Marine Terminals Storage Facilities Refineries Offshore Platforms Floating Facilities Processing Skid Packages Subsea Manifolds Gas Processing Plants
