Proper specification of bar gratings includes a determination of load conditions, effective unsupported clear span, flooring surface, trim and finish. Appropriate consideration of these elements plus any features unique to their particular application will allow the specifying authority to select products that will provide years of continuing service.
bar grating serrated surface option
Optional Surface, Serrated
The excellent drainage and self-cleaning characteristics of plain surface grating make it suitable for the majority of applications. In the presence of materials which could cause the top surface of the bars to become slippery, the optional serrated surface should be considered. When serrated surfaces are specified, the bearing bar depth must be increased 1/4” greater than the sizes shown in the load tables and selection guides to provide the equivalent strength of non-serrated bars.
