FRP Grating deck turf and tile

Raise floors featuring artificial turf, rubber flooring or other non weight bearing surfaces require additional substrate support. Our Deck Turf FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic) panels install over our pedestal system providing a structural floor to lay turf as well as wood deck tiles, porcelain pavers, concrete pavers or any other exterior floor desired. These lightweight grated panels provide unparalleled performance to allow mixed flooring materials to be used seamlessly in any application including pool surrounds, outdoor terraces, rooftop decks, patios, balconies and other exterior areas


• Does not break down, rot, rust, crack or deflect when stepped on
• Create structural support for non structural flooring options (turf, rubber, etc)
• Extends load-bearing capacity for heavy duty commercial flooring applications
• Grated construction allows for drainage
• Easily cut to fit any desired size or shape
• Necessary for created elevated turf floors, a popular green and visually appealing rooftop floor.

FRP applications for turf surfaces


FRP is used in conjunction with artificial turf installations to enhance the performance, durability, and longevity of the turf system. Here’s how FRP can be used for artificial turf applications:


  1. Base Support and Stability: FRP materials can be used to create a stable and level base for artificial turf. This can be particularly useful in situations where the ground underneath might be uneven or prone to shifting. FRP panels can be laid down as a stable substructure, ensuring a consistent and level surface for the artificial turf to sit on.
  2. Drainage Enhancement: Proper drainage is essential for artificial turf to prevent water accumulation and promote durability. FRP grating or panels with appropriate spacing can allow water to drain through, preventing puddling and improving the overall longevity of the turf.
  3. Shock Absorption and Safety: In areas where impact resistance is important, such as playgrounds or sports fields, FRP composite materials can be integrated beneath the artificial turf to provide shock absorption and cushioning. This can enhance the safety of the turf area, reducing the risk of injuries.
  4. Structural Support for Sports Fields: In sports fields like soccer or football fields, where the artificial turf experiences heavy use and impact, FRP materials can be used to reinforce the substructure. This enhances the field’s ability to withstand the stresses of sports activities.
  5. Integration with Landscaping: FRP components can be used to create customizable landscaping elements that work in tandem with the artificial turf. This could include borders, pathways, or raised platforms that are integrated seamlessly with the turf design.
  6. Corrosion Resistance: If the artificial turf is being installed in an environment with high moisture or chemicals, using FRP components can provide corrosion resistance and prevent degradation of the underlying materials.
  7. Longevity and Low Maintenance: FRP materials are durable and require minimal maintenance. Integrating them into the artificial turf system can contribute to the overall longevity of the installation and reduce the need for frequent repairs.
  8. Custom Design and Patterns: FRP materials can be molded into various shapes and patterns, allowing architects and designers to create unique and aesthetically pleasing designs that complement the artificial turf area.

It’s important to note that the specific application of FRP in artificial turf projects will depend on the project’s requirements, the intended use of the turf area, and local regulations. Working with experienced professionals who are knowledgeable about both FRP materials and artificial turf installations is crucial to ensuring a successful and safe outcome.

Other flooring uses on FRP?


When it comes to flooring options that can be installed on top of FRP grating, you have several choices depending on the specific requirements of your project. Here are some common types of flooring that can be placed on FRP grating:


  1. Anti-Slip Coatings or Treads: To enhance safety and prevent slips, you can apply anti-slip coatings, paints, or adhesive treads to the top surface of the FRP grating. These coatings provide additional grip, making the grating surface more secure for walking.
  2. Wooden Decking: While wood itself may not be an ideal material for direct contact with FRP due to moisture concerns, you can consider using wooden decking tiles or panels specifically designed to be installed over FRP grating. These can create a classic wood appearance while avoiding direct wood-to-FRP contact.
  3. Rubber Mats or Tiles: Interlocking rubber mats or tiles can be placed on top of FRP grating to create a comfortable and slip-resistant walking surface. These mats or tiles can provide cushioning and insulation while maintaining the benefits of the grating below.
  4. Composite Decking: Composite decking is a popular choice for outdoor spaces, including decks and walkways. It consists of a blend of wood fibers and recycled plastic materials, offering a natural appearance along with resistance to moisture and decay. Composite decking can be laid over FRP grating for a comfortable and visually appealing surface.
  5. Vinyl or PVC Flooring: Vinyl or PVC flooring tiles are lightweight, easy to install, and provide a water-resistant and durable surface. They can be installed directly over FRP grating to create a clean and smooth walking area.
  6. Carpet or Carpet Tiles: Carpet or carpet tiles can be installed on top of FRP grating in indoor spaces to provide comfort, insulation, and sound absorption. Carpet tiles are modular and allow for easy replacement in case of damage.
  7. Concrete or Mortar Overlay: For certain applications, you might consider applying a thin layer of concrete or mortar over the FRP grating to create a solid and stable surface. This can be useful in scenarios where a more traditional flooring appearance is desired.

FRP Technical Attributes


Our FRP has maximum UV resistance, a comfortable surface for bare feet and is durable, with a high strength to weight ratio. Depth options include  1” and 1-1/2”.  Panels are the right choice to minimize vibration from rolling cart or wheelchair traffic. The panels with a 1/2″ open area between bearing bars are ADA compliant and meet the “15 mm ball test.”

FRP access flooring system is designed as a low cost alternative where subfloor access and unobstructed air flow is required. Panels can be easily removed, providing ready access to electrical conduits, air supply plenums, and service lines. FRP is Corrosion Resistant, Lightweight, Long Service Life, Non-Conductive, UV Resistant, ADA Compliant, Slip Resistant
