Fiberglass FRP Stair Tread Covers Revitalize Old Stairs

metal stairs
Before: These unsightly metal stairs needed improvement. FRP Stair Tread Covers were the perfect solution!

Fiberglass FRP Stair Tread Covers easily install over existing metal, wood or concrete stairs to instantly improve safety, usability, visibility, and aesthetics.

National Grating recently assisted a small business in Ontario to revitalize their old steps with Fiberglass FRP Stair Tread Covers.  The outdoor staircase provides access to the Yoga Studio on the second level of the building.  The old stairs were rusting and becoming unsightly and hazardous.  Fiberglass FRP Stair Tread Covers were easily installed over the existing metal stairs.

Entrances are the first impression for customers approaching your business.  The unsightly stairs leading to the Yoga Studio not only provide access to clients, but they are also the first thing people see before they enter the business and the last thing they see when they leave. The rusting, old stairs looked terrible and presented a bad first impression for clients. The Yoga Studio decided it was time for an update!  New National Grating FRP Stair Treads cover up old stairs without need for a new rebuild, while providing added safety through bright yellow nosing and a grippy anti slip coating.

FRP Grating Winter Applications

national grating frp stair treads frp stair tread cover

Winter Applications for FRP Grating, Stair Treads and Railings

As the fall and winter seasons approach, many are gearing up to face the challenges that come with cold, wet, icy and slippery conditions. FRP Grating, Stair Tread, Railings and Structural products are ideal for cold weather and arctic applications as they have very low thermal conductivity and do not become brittle in extreme cold.

One of the most significant advantages of FRP grating, stair treads and stair tread covers in winter is their exceptional slip resistance. FRP surfaces are engineered to provide reliable traction, even when wet or covered in snow and ice. This can prevent accidents and ensure safe movement on stairs and walkways, both indoors and outdoors.

Slips trips and falls are the #1 cause of workplace injuries.

Choose FRP Grating for a safe workspace!

Consider FRP Grating, Stair Treads, and Railings for the following Benefits/Advantages:

1. Safety in Slippery Conditions:


One of the most significant advantages of FRP grating, stair treads, and handrails in winter is their exceptional slip resistance. FRP surfaces are engineered to provide reliable traction, even when wet or covered in snow and ice. This can prevent accidents and ensure safe movement on stairs and walkways, both indoors and outdoors.

2. Corrosion Resistance:


Winter weather often means exposure to salt and de-icing chemicals, which can be corrosive to traditional materials like steel. FRP is highly resistant to corrosion, making it an ideal choice for outdoor installations, such as walkways and handrails. Its durability ensures that these elements remain safe and functional throughout the winter season.

FRP Stair treads with yellow nosing and grit top are the ultimate in winter safety!

3. Low Thermal Conductivity:


FRP has a low thermal conductivity, which means it does not readily transfer heat or cold. In winter, this can be a significant advantage. Handrails made of FRP won’t become uncomfortably cold to the touch, providing a more pleasant experience for those who need to hold onto them in chilly weather.

4. Low Maintenance:


FRP products require minimal maintenance. They do not rust, warp, or rot, and they’re highly resistant to the effects of freezing and thawing. This translates to cost savings and less time spent on upkeep during the winter season.

5. Longevity and Durability:


FRP materials are built to last. They can withstand the harsh conditions of winter without deteriorating. This long-term durability ensures that your infrastructure investments remain sound and reliable year after year.

6. Easy Installation:


FRP products are lightweight and easy to install, which can save time and resources, especially during winter when weather-related challenges can increase project complexities.


Embracing FRP grating, stair treads, and handrails during the winter season is a smart choice for safety, reliability, and longevity. These versatile materials offer a range of benefits that can help ensure that your infrastructure remains secure and functional, regardless of the weather conditions. Whether it’s in industrial settings, commercial properties, or residential areas, the advantages of FRP are undeniable during the challenging winter months.

Why choose Pultruded FRP Grating?

Pultruded FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) grating is often chosen over molded FRP grating or steel grating for industrial applications due to several key differences in their characteristics and performance. Here are the main reasons for choosing pultruded FRP grating:

Strength and Stiffness: Pultruded grating has a higher fiberglass concentration, making it stronger and stiffer than molded grating. This characteristic makes it suitable for applications requiring higher load-bearing capacity and longer spans.

Corrosion Resistance: Pultruded grating offers excellent corrosion resistance, making it ideal for harsh industrial environments where exposure to chemicals, moisture, and corrosive elements is a concern.

Heavy-Duty Applications: Due to its superior strength and load-bearing capabilities, pultruded grating is well-suited for heavy-duty industrial applications, such as manufacturing plants, chemical processing facilities, and offshore platforms.

Customization and Versatility: Pultruded grating can be customized to meet specific project requirements, offering versatility in panel sizes, resin systems, and other design features to accommodate various industrial applications.

Fire Retardant Properties: Some pultruded grating products are manufactured with fire retardant properties, making them suitable for applications where fire safety is a concern.

Pultruded FRP grating is preferred over molded grating for industrial applications due to its higher strength, stiffness, corrosion resistance, suitability for heavy-duty use, and the ability to be customized to meet specific project requirements.

Pultruded FRP VS Steel and Wood Grating

pultruded frp grating dry dock
Pultruded FRP Grating was chosen in this application due to the deterioration of the wood and its fasteners.

Pultruded FRP (Fiber Reinforced Plastic) grating is often chosen over steel grating for industrial applications due to several key advantages. Here are the main reasons for choosing pultruded FRP grating over steel grating:

  1. Corrosion Resistance: Pultruded FRP grating offers superior corrosion resistance compared to steel grating, making it ideal for corrosive environments, including chemical processing, marine, and industrial settings.
  1. Strength-to-Weight Ratio: Pultruded FRP grating provides high strength with a lower weight compared to steel, offering easier installation and reduced structural support requirements.
  1. Low Maintenance: FRP grating requires minimal maintenance and is resistant to chemicals, making it an attractive choice for industrial applications where exposure to water, chemicals, and cleaning agents is common.

HLC FRP Grating

Heavy Duty HLC Fiberglass Grating

HLC (High Load Capacity) FRP Grating is specifically designed for trenches with heavy vehicle traffic and rolling loads such as forklifts or large trucks. HLC grating is extremely durable and can withstand corrosive environments where steel will rust.

HLC Grating 1.5” or 2” Deep

1.5” deep HLC grating can withstand 5,000-pound concentrated loads with very little deflection. 2” deep HLC grating is even stronger and can span wider trenches. It has a 1” by 2” mesh pattern with 48% open area.

FRP Versus Steel

With the growing popularity of Fiberglass grating, our customers are discovering more and more applications for FRP Grating where they have previously used steel.

Steel is flexible under heavy pressure; It doesn’t like to bend back to its original shape once it has been transformed. FRP is highly elastic but engineered in such a way to where it doesn’t permanently deform. FRP grating creates less vibration than steel, so it doesn’t emit an annoying clatter when driven over.
