T5020 Safe-T-Span® FRP pultruded grating
The lightweight pultruded material allows for easy removal of the grating when a single worker is on site performing equipment maintenance.
The slip-resistant surface of Fibergrate's FRP gives plant workers safe, sure surfaces on which to walk, despite slippery conditions resulting from grease, chemicals, oil or water.
Intermountain Electric was in search of a product that would be weather and slip resistant for use on transformer substations. The material would be used as a sump cover at the substation, covering cables and other equipment. Intermountain Electric wanted a product that could be removed easily in order for workers to safely access the hidden equipment found beneath the substation.
Fibergrate's T5020 Safe-T-Span® FRP pultruded grating was chosen for installation on the transformer substation. Intermountain Electric had not used FRP for this type of application before and was pleased with the low maintenance and slip resistant features that Fibergrate's FRP grating provided. The aesthetics of the grating used for the application also exceeded the expectations of both Western United Electric and Intermountain Electric. In addition, Fibergrate's lightweight properties allowed for easy removal of the grating when a single worker may be on the site performing equipment maintenance. The opening between the grating bars also allows air to circulate throughout the underground equipment and cables. For electrifying results call Fibergrate, we can provide powerful solutions for any type of application.
