Fibergrate® 1" deep, 1-1/2" square mesh Vi-Corr® fiberglass reinforced grating; Corvex® molded grating
Due to the presence of highly acidic chemicals used in the plating process, Fibergrate FRP grating provided a durable, corrosion-resistant walking surface.
The slip resistant surface of the FRP gratings provided solid footing in wet areas throughout the facility.
Bob Smith Coachworks, Inc. of Gainesville, Texas specializes in the restoration of exotic sports and racing cars. When owner Bob Smith experienced difficulty in obtaining high-quality chrome plating for his bumpers and other bright-work needed for auto restorations, he opened his own state-of-the-art metal plating shop, Texas Metal Finishers.
Due to the presence of highly acidic chemicals used in the plating process, this facility needed a durable, corrosion-resistant walking surface that also provided sure footing. Fibergrate supplied 1" deep, 1-1/2" square mesh Vi-Corr® fiberglass reinforced grating which was installed around the tanks used in the plating process. Smith selected the grating based upon its proven corrosion resistance, high strength, easy installation and overall lower life cycle cost. Smith also installed a Fibergrate Corvex® FRP molded grating walkway in the shop's wastewater area, assuring safety throughout the facility - even in wet conditions.
