Our FRP structural shapes & grating are strong, lightweight, non-conductive and non-corrosive, so they’re ideal for harsh environments. We can custom-engineer and fabricate the best solution to meet your needs – from handrails and stairs to platforms, ladders and much more. And we’ll stand behind our material with our industry leading warranty.


  • PROGrid® fiberglass molded grating
    Proven corrosion resistance is just one of the benefits of our PROGrid® fiberglass molded grating. It’s strong, lightweight and performs reliably for years, even in extreme conditions. Slip resistant coating options also enhance worker safety...


    Reduced Maintenance Costs > The high resin-to-glass ratio (approximately 65% resin to 35% glass by weight) provides a long service life, so you won’t have to replace FRP grating as often as other materials. And molded-through color eliminates the need for painting.

    Stock or Custom Sizes > FRP molded grating is available in stock panels, or we can fabricate to size to meet your specifications. We can also design, engineer and fabricate complete fiberglass grating systems.

    Simple Installation > Grating can be fabricated using standard tools.

    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.

    Dimensionally Stable > A low coefficient of expansion and contraction makes our molded grating products dimensionally stable in many environments
  • PROGrate® pultruded fiberglass grating
    PROGrate® pultruded fiberglass grating supports heavier loads and longer spans than comparably sized molded grating. It’s ideal for demanding applications ranging from ADA-compliant walkways to heavy-duty vehicular traffic...


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

    Safer Walking Surface > Our pultruded fiberglass grating features coarse epoxy no-skid coating for enhanced traction.

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

    Easy Fabrication > Grating 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.

    VGBA Certified > Our pultruded FRP grating has been tested and has met the specifications set forth by the Virginia Graeme Baker Act (VGBA) for use in VGBA compliant drain systems.

    Support and Stability > Continuous glass rovings resist tension, compression and bending while providing longitudinal strength. Continuous glass mat increases transverse strength and impact resistance.

  • FRP Assemblies & Systems
    Bedford can design and fabricate a seamless, corrosion-resistant system using our PROForms, PROGrid, and PROGrate structural fiberglass products. Popular applications, including caged ladders, FRP stairs, handrails and FRP platforms...

  • Custom FRP Structures

    Some projects call for more than individual FRP profiles or “sticks.” When you need an FRP assembly or FRP system, contact Bedford. Just send us your requirements, and we’ll prepare the pieces you need for fast, easy installation on the job.

    System components can be cut, drilled and shipped assembled, partially assembled or ready to assemble based on your specs. Structural fiberglass is lightweight and easy to handle, so on-site fabrication is a snap with standard tools. And once it’s in place, it won’t rot, decay, rust or corrode for years to come. The following are just a few examples:
