Full-Service Supplier of Structural FRP Products & Services

We provide a smart alternative to wood, steel and aluminum. Our fiberglass reinforced polymer (FRP) material is strong, lightweight and non-conductive. It won’t corrode, rot, rust or warp so it’s ideal for harsh environments. Because of these properties, our products have been used in many noteworthy projects — from the Bellagio fountains in Las Vegas to canopy structures protecting Hoover Dam penstocks.

Popular products include FRP grating, handrails, walkways, platforms, ladders, stair structures and more.

    We stock one of the industry’s most comprehensive lines of FRP profiles. Fiberglass angle, beams, rod and more are in stock, and same day shipping is available....

  • Need to replace wood, steel or aluminum with a strong, lightweight, long-lasting option? We stock one of the industry’s most comprehensive lines of FRP profiles. Fiberglass angle, beams, rod and more are in stock, and same day shipping is available. Our fiberglass reinforced plastic structural shapes are just as strong as traditional building materials, but have a longer life cycle and are backed by our 25 year warranty. Add in benefits like weather-resistance, optional safety features, multiple color options, and nationwide inventory and it’s hard to say no.
  • PROGrid Molded FRP Grating
    Proven corrosion resistance is just one of the benefits of our PROGrid fiberglass molded grating....

  • PROGrid is strong, lightweight, and performs reliably for years, even in extreme conditions. Slip-resistant coating and other options are also available, allowing you to design an FRP product that fits your application perfectly.

    Available Resin Systems
    PROGrid molded grating is available in three resin systems, each providing different levels of corrosion protection. All three resin systems meet Class 1 Flame Spread Rating per ASTM E-84 test standards.

    GP: A general-purpose orthophthalic polyester resin system that offers good corrosion resistance at an economical price. Standard colors: Yellow and Light Gray

    IFR: A premium-grade isophthalic polyester resin system that provides excellent corrosion protection. Standard colors: Green, Yellow, Dark Gray and Light Gray

    VFR: A vinylester resin system that provides the highest level of corrosion protection. Standard colors: Orange and Dark Gray

    Long Service Life
    The high resin-to-glass ratio (approximately 65% resin to 35% glass by weight) provides excellent service life, even in the most demanding applications.

    Less Waste
    Interwoven square mesh construction provides bi-directional strength, so you can cut grating to fit and make the most efficient use of each panel.

    Available Top Surfaces
    PROGrid molded grating panels are available in square or rectangular mesh configurations with either Meniscus or Grit-Top slip-resistant surfaces.

    Grit-Top: Quartz grit anti-slip surface
    Meniscus: Concave, half-moon cross section with no grit

  • PROGrate Pultruded Grating
    ​PROGrate pultruded fiberglass grating supports heavier loads and longer spans than comparably sized molded grating....

  • PROGrate is ideal for demanding applications ranging from ADA-compliant walkways to heavy-duty vehicular traffic. And forget about complicated installation, pultruded grating is easy to transport, cut, and fabricate using standard tools.

    Strong, Lightweight and Corrosion-Resistant
    PROGrate pultruded grating has the strength of steel, but it won’t corrode like steel can.

    Safer Walking Surface
    A quartz grit anti-slip epoxy coating enhances traction.

    Support and Stability
    Cross-rods and bearing bars lock mechanically for maximum unidirectional strength.

    Easy Fabrication
    Panels are lightweight, easy to transport, and can be cut and fabricated using standard hand tools.

    Extended Life
    The coated resin surface increases resistance to chemical corrosion and continuous UV exposure.

    Stress Resistance
    Continuous glass rovings resist tension, compression and bending while providing longitudinal strength. Continuous glass mat increases transverse strength and resistance to impact.

    Available Resin Systems

    PROGrate pultruded grating is available in two resin systems, each providing different levels of corrosion protection. Both resin systems meet Class 1 Flame Spread Rating per ASTM E-84 test standards.

    IFR: A premium-grade isophthalic polyester resin system that provides excellent corrosion protection. Standard colors: Yellow and Gray.

    VFR: A vinylester resin system that provides the highest level of corrosion protection. Standard colors: Yellow and Gray.
