Quality Industrial Plastics was founded and began selling fiberglass grating in the 1980’s, before it was a popular choice in corrosive environments. Fast forward 35 years, it has become a standard specification in a great number of industrial, chemical and offshore applications. QIP is a leader on the Alabama Gulf Coast for all trench grating applications. We carry a broad spectrum of both metallic and composite gratings. Please call us to discuss your plant’s particular requirements and we will graciously recommend a corrosion resistant solution.
We are known well for fiberglass grating and prefabricated fiberglass structures. However, like every growing business, our grating offering has grown and will continue to evolve with time and technology. At QIP, we stay humble, respectful, and take our business seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. We are here to serve.
The bearing bars use both longitudinal (glass roving) and multidirectional (glass mat) reinforcements as well as a synthetic surfacing veil to provide unequaled strength and corrosion resistance. The densely packed core of continuous glass rovings gives the bar strength and stiffness in the longitudinal direction while the continuous glass mat provides strength in the transverse direction and prevents chipping, cracking and lineal fracturing. The synthetic surfacing veil provides a 100% pure resin surface for added corrosion resistance and UV protection.
Options in FRP are also available with a H20 truck load application. Heavy Duty Fiberglass grating is designed to take heavy duty wheel traffic such as fork trucks and truck traffic.
Looking for prefabricated galvanized grating? Yes, we offer that as well, since we understand fiberglass is not always an option. Please shoot us an email or give us a ring and we can provide you with a galvanized solution for your trench, stair treads and platforms. Close to 90% of the fabricated GLV grating we sell is 19W4. Other bearing bar and cross rod spacings are available on request.
Heavy duty steel is a common choice for applications that involve vehicle traffic. Metal grating with bars thicker than 3/16” are considered Heavy Duty. Contact us for more information on what series best meets your needs.
Aluminum grating is an excellent choice if you have a corrosive or damp environment and need a strong option. You have all the same options of sizes, finishes and properties as your light duty grating.
