Corrosion Resistant Building Alternative

Bedford fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP) building materials offer the strength of steel but resists corrosion or rot. In addition to a range of FRP structural shapes and profiles, the company now has a selection of US-Coast-Guard-approved phenolic molded and pultruded grating. FRP is strong yet lightweight, which allows for transportation efficiency. It can also be installed with standard tools. Electrically nonconductive and nonsparking, the material can be used for oil rigs and refineries because it resists corrosion, humidity, and impact damage. Fire-retardant and no-slip options are available.
