What is USCG test?
FRP gratings are not specifically addressed in the individual vessel regulations. However, the resins typically used in the manufacture of these gratings are combustible and heat sensitive; therefore, FRP gratings use must be limited based on the requirements discussed below.
These requirements are not intended to eliminate any other design criteria or requirement pertaining to the material, construction, or performance of the FRP gratings in the non-fire condition.
Level 1 (L1): FRP gratings meeting the L1 performance criteria are intended to be satisfactory for use in escape routes or access for firefighting, emergency operation or rescue, after having been exposed to a significant hydrocarbon or cellulosic fire incident. In addition they are also acceptable for the services and functions described for levels L2 and L3.
Level 2 (L2): FRP gratings meeting the L2 performance criteria are intended to be satisfactory for use in open deck areas where groups of people are likely to assemble such as temporary safe refuge or lifeboat embarkation areas. In addition they are also acceptable for the services and functions described for level L3.
Level 3 (L3): FRP gratings meeting the L3 performance criteria are intended to be satisfactory for use in egress routes and any areas that may require access for firefighting, rescue or emergency operations during exposure to or shortly after exposure to a transitory hydrocarbon or cellulosic fire.
