More GatorGrate on page 2

GatorGrate is a one-piece, reinforced polyester or vinylester (FRP) grating, available in standard panels and sizes. It is manufactured by interweaving continuous, thoroughly wetted, fiberglass strand with thermosetting resin systems. Standard panels are available in four resin systems, two top surface configurations, four panel sizes and five standard grid patterns. Typical applications include floor systems, walkways, work platforms, stairs, ramps, trench covers and catwalks. GatorGrate has been successfully used in many industries - including food processing, beverage, chemical processing, water & wastewater treatment, metal finishing, pulp/paper, transportation, pharmaceutical, textile, oil/gas and mining/smelting/refining.

PFR & IFR Resin systems meet USDA standards for
incidental food contact.
