Grating fire resistance

What resin type do I need?

Safe Tread GRP Grating has been tested in accordance with the ASTM E–84 tunnel test. Depending on the resin type it achieves a Class 1 flame spread rating of between 5–25 or less. Test reports are available on request. Special fire retardant requirements can also be met with extra additives.

Grating Resin Type

Fire Rating & Operating Temperature

Application

Type O

Orthophthalic Polyester resin

Fire retardant, flame spread rating ASTM E84 Class 1, 25 or less, operating temperature -50°C to +100°C.

For use in water/wastewater or air-ageing applications, light industrial applications and in the wavezone areas of offshore platforms where the environment is moderate.

Although Type O is the least chemical resistant resin it still offers superior performance to traditional flooring products such as steel, aluminum and wood and is the most economical resin available.

Type I

Isophthalic Polyester resin

Fire retardant, flame spread rating ASTM E84 Class 1, 25 or less, operating temperature -50°C to +105°C. For use in the environments of middle concentration inorganic acid, inorganic alkali, etc.

Type F

Food grade Polyester resin

Fire retardant, operating temperature -50°C to +105°C. Often used in food plants or water treatment plants.

Type V

Vinyl Ester resin

Fire retardant, flame spread rating ASTM E84 Class 1, 25 or less, operating temperature
-50°C to +110°C.
Environments with serious corrosion issues.

Type HV

High flame resistant Vinyl Ester resin

Enhanced fire retardant, flame spread rating ASTM E84 Class 1, 10 or less, operating temperature -50°C to +110°C. Grating has passed assessment by ABS (American Bureau of Shipping).

Environments with serious corrosion requiring better flame resistance.

Type P

Phenolic resin

Low smoke and superior fire resistance, flame spread rating ASTM E84 Class 1, 5 or less, smoke developed index zero, operating temperature up to 180°C.

For use in areas where fire resistance, low smoke, and low toxic fumes are critical e.g. offshore applications.
