Benefits of Saige’s FRP Grating
for Marine & Offshore
Light Weight, Easy Installation
1/3 weight of steel grating makes installation easy and eliminate the need for heavy lifting equipment, offering more allowable weight for other spares and parts in marine and offshore projects. It is a good solution to reduce the weight of topside of FPSO, enhancing the stability.
FRP grating could be effortlessly cut with standard circular or reciprocating saws and installed on site while metal grating require labor- consuming painting and welding. Therefore, only minimal labor is required if using FRP materials.
Long Service Life in Corrosive Environments:
Unparallelled performance in harsh conditions, which could not be achieved by using tradional metal grating.
FRP grating has a longer service life than metal grating, which requires intensive maintenance of repainting. Replacements cost much to owners.
A Whole Spectrum of Colors for Choice:
Select any color as you like without any extra charges.
Excellent test results (BS 7976-2) give guarantee for sure footing on board. Please take note that slips and falls will be the major cause for injuries and deaths in marine and offshore industry, Loss of each work-day will cost considerable amounts of money.
Fire Retardance and Low Temperature Resistance
Tests of ASTM E84 and -196 degrees Celcius insure marine safety. Please keep in mind that good performance of FRP walkways at ultra low temperatures is compulsory on LNG carriers.
Strong Supply Record of Successful Cases
Approved by world renowned shipowners to be installed on lots of LNG carriers, among which are the 3 largest ones, each with a tank capacity up to 260000cbm.
