Welded Steel Bar Grating is the most popular of all grating types due to its strength, cost-efficient production and ease of installation. Universally used in most general industrial plants as well as commercial buildings, it has wide applications as walkways, platforms, safety barriers, drainage covers and ventilation grates.
It is also ideal for use as mezzanine decking since it supports the same loads as comparable solid flooring. More than that, its cost saving openness maximizes the circulation of air, light, heat, water and sound, while promoting cleanliness. And, where insurance codes permit, additional sprinklers can often be eliminated.
Standard panels are available in widths of 2', 3' or 4'. Welded steel bar grating is resistance welded to create a rugged, one-piece constructed panel. The bearing bars are automatically resistance welded at the contact point with the cross bars and, under a combination of high heat and pressure, are fused together to form a permanent joint. The cross bars provide a high degree of rigidity, yet retain a smooth flat surface for free and easy walking.
When ordering bar grating, specify the type of grating to identify the material and spacing (center to center) of the bearing bars and cross rods. Specify the depth and thickness of the bearing bars and their surface (plain or serrated). Specify the number of panels, their length, width and finish (mill finish, primered or galvanized).
