ACMA Releases 2nd Edition National Standard Fiberglass Grating Manual

August 05 2019

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) has released a new resource on the ACMA Education Hub. The official ANSI Approved: FRP Composites Grating Manual for Pultruded and Molded Grating and Stair Treads (2nd Edition) was prepared and developed by ACMA’s Fiberglass Grating Manufacturers Council (FGMC), and it offers an overview of fiberglass grating and includes load tables, tolerances and ordering information to assist engineers and designers with selection of fiberglass grating.

The 2nd Edition of the FRP Composites Grating Manual for Pultruded and Molded Grating and Stair Treads provides updates and enhancements for uniform information for safe and efficient design of FRP gratings. The FRP Composites Grating Manual has 3 main sections: load tables, standard specifications, and the code of standard practice. Load tables are used as a reference for engineers to compare the performance of FRP pultruded and molded grating under specified load conditions, and to assist designers with grating series selection. Standard specifications offer guidance for engineers and owners when procurement purchases the grating and assist specifiers in the preparation of contract documents associated with fiberglass grating. The Code of Standard Practice introduces the engineer, designer, and specifier to the accepted standard practices that demonstrate how fiberglass grating manufacturers are guided to make quality products in the composites industry. Additionally, the new resource covers manufacturing tolerances and recommended fasteners to support installers, as well as a testing procedure for quality control and end user product qualification.
