RESOURCES & SPECIFICATIONS
The FGMC is proud to announce the completion of an ASCE/ANSI Nationally Accepted FRP Composites Grating Manual. The new Fiberglass Grating Manual Standard was designed to educate engineers, designers and end-users about the properties, performance and uses of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) grating. The engineering community relies on recognized standards when specifying materials and the FRP Composites Grating Manual will enable engineers to design and use FRP with confidence.
The FRP Composites Grating Manual has three sections:
- Load Tables: A quick reference for engineers to compare the performance of FRP grating types under specified load conditions.
- Code of Standard Practice: Representation of generally accepted standard practices in the fiberglass grating industry.
- Generic Specification: Suggested guidance for engineers and owners when procurement purchases the grating, keeping all manufacturers on a level playing field; this specification also promotes the manufacturing of gratings that will have minimum performance standards.
