Safety and safety in workplaces are prime concerns of businesses all over the world. Accidents in workplaces happen mostly due to mechanical malfunctioning, slippery surfaces and unprotected areas. For preventing these accidents, companies were searching for more efficient ways. Earlier, materials such as steel and aluminum were used to craft safety parts. However, these materials were quite prone to the impact of rust, moisture, chemicals and heat. Thus, it became necessary for the companies to have a material which was strong and durable like steel and aluminum but was free of their weaknesses. Also, with the gradually increasing price of steel, finding an alternative became extremely necessary.

 

Beneficial Aspects of FRP Gratings

With the invention of FRP or Fiber-reinforced polymer, businesses were able to successfully incorporate its composites in the form of various safety features. These composites incredibly reduced the rate of accidents occurring in workplaces. The FRP grating is mostly used to form decks for catwalks, bridges and footbridges. Due to its slip resistant and non-conductive properties, these gratings were perfect for workplaces around coastal areas and also those involving the use of electricity.

These composites were several times stronger than the conventional materials due to being capable of withstanding an extreme amount of pressure. Unlike steel and aluminum that can easily bend on the implication of heat, fibreglass remains intact. Also, the conventional materials were prone to suffer from the corrosive action of chemicals and rust. These needed to be coated accordingly to keep them long lasting. However, in terms of fibreglass composites, they require no expensive coatings to prevent them from corroding.

 

Beneficial Aspects of Stairnosing Systems

The stairnosing system is another such safety feature composed of fibreglass. This composite is utilized for preventing slip and fall accidents occurring in the staircases. The worn out edges of the steps often prove to be dangerous to the people working as well to those who visit the premises. By installing these systems, the worn out edges are covered, thus preventing the slip and fall cases and related injuries.

With such beneficial aspects, installing them in workplaces is a wise decision. As for the cost involved in their maintenance and installation, fibreglass composites require a negligible amount of maintenance. Since the installation of these structures is quite easy, manufacturers generally offer free installation. In terms of maintenance, you don’t have to pay much attention due to its long lasting durability and impervious to the impact of heat, rust and chemical reactions. Installing these gratings and stair nosing systems would not let you ensure safety and security of the visitors and employees but also reduce the expenses for compensating the accidents. If you are running a business, waste no time and quickly get these beneficial FRP structures into your premises.
