McNICHOLS' molded fiberglass grating may be used as walking surfaces with a slip-resistant gritted surface option. The grating may also be used in sunscreen applications, as the smooth, square-hole versions of the molded, one-piece panels reduce solar impact. It has 70-percent open area and typical hole sizes for sunscreens are 1 1/2 inches square and 1-inch to 1 1/2 inches high. Molded fiberglass grating is available in standard square or rectangular configurations and a variety of sizes, resins and colors.
