Heavily corrosive environment (VE)

Intergrate® VE GRP gratings are produced with a high-quality patented vinylester resin combined with a continuously woven fiberglass pattern. There are two types of vinylester resin:

  • VE-FR
  • VE-XFR

Types of resin

When choosing the type of resin, you need to determine whether the grating must be fire-resistant. You can choose between:

  • VE-FR
    • VE-FR is a resin that is extremely suitable for a highly corrosive and chemical environment and is highly fire-resistant with controlled spreading of smoke. The abbreviation FR stands for ‘Fire-Retardant’.
  • VE-XFR
    • VE-XFR is a resin that is extremely suitable for a highly corrosive and chemical environment and is extremely fire-resistant with controlled spreading of smoke. This type of resin has a flame propagation index of 10 and a smoke index of 1100 in accordance with the ASTM E-84 tunnel test. The abbreviation XFR stands for ‘Extra Fire-Retardant’.

Anti-slip class

As standard, all Fiberstruct GRP gratings are produced with an anti-slip class in accordance with BGR 181 and DIN 51130. The slip-resistance of surfaces is categorised in anti-slip classes. These GRP gratings satisfy anti-slip class R13 (greater than 35°, extremely high coefficient of friction).

Class      Angle of inclination
R 9 6° - 10°, low coefficient of friction
R 10 > 10° - 19°, normal coefficient of friction
R 11 > 19° - 27°, good coefficient of friction
R 12 > 27° - 35°, high coefficient of friction
R 13 > 35°, very high coefficient of friction
