FRP Fabricated Walking Systems
FRP Catwalk Grating: Choose from a variety of molded FRP grating and pultruded FRP grating options with non-slip coating for a lightweight, durable alternative to steel catwalks.
Custom FRP Crossover Platforms: Our completely customizable FRP crossover platforms are built to withstand harsh environments and last for years to come.
Corrosion Resistant: Our fiberglass grating catwalk and platform systems won’t rust or corrode, making them the ideal alternative to steel catwalk material. In humid or dry environments, steel can end up wearing down. With FRP catwalks, there isn’t a need to replace the catwalk as often.
Safety Features: Marco’s fiberglass catwalk gratings can be coated with fire-retardant resins which can withstand higher temperatures than polyester or vinyl-ester for extended periods of time without significant structural damage. If safety and durability are a concern, industrial grade FRP catwalks are the answer.
Marco Specialty Steel can supply Molded, or Pultruded grating, handrails, fasteners, and more for a complete catwalk system.
Custom Fiberglass Fabrication Services
At Marco Specialty Steel, we specialize in fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) products featuring a blend of glass fiber and thermosetting plastic resins. Our Marco Fiberglass division offers products manufactured via two popular processes: open molding that provides equal strength in horizontal and vertical directions, and pultrusion, which produces grating consisting of cross and bearing bars formed into a grid pattern.
We have the capabilities to perform fiberglass grating fabrication to provide a customized solution for companies across a broad spectrum of industries. We can take any stock fiberglass item in our inventory and transform it into a strong, functional product that meets your unique manufacturing requirements. We can produce custom fiberglass grating in a variety of shapes and sizes, including skewed cutouts, segmented circles and much more.
Our Fully In-House Custom FRP Fabrication Shop
As a Marco Fiberglass customer, you never have to worry about any aspect of your custom fiberglass grating project being outsourced to a third-party vendor. We have our own state-of-the-art, in-house fabrication shop located within our Houston facility. Our shop includes all the latest saws, shears, press brakes and related equipment, and our team has the expertise required to complete your project quickly and efficiently.
Fiberglass grating cutting and installation is a difficult, messy process. Marco Fiberglass has the skill and tools to perform precision cutting of the material. We will then use a resin fiber grinding disc to smooth out the cut edges. The next step is the application of a resin material to form a protective seal that prevents the corrosion of the glass fibers. Finally, we will install the FRP product, using specially designed stainless steel clips to support the panel bearing edges.
Keeping everything in-house allows us to closely monitor and control the production process from start to finish so we can deliver custom FRP grating services of the highest level of quality.
