Steel grating will always be the proper choice for many project categories. Strength, long service life, ease of installation and relatively low cost make welded steel grating the most popular of all grating types. Note: Stainless steel grating is also available for use in corrosive environments.
Rugged, One-piece Steel Bar Grating
Most steel grating is manufactured by an automated resistance-welding process under extreme heat and pressure, literally fusing the cross bar/bearing bar intersections together to form a rugged, onepiece panel. The surface remains uniform to accommodate foot or vehicular traffic. Welded bar grating is commonly used in industrial plants and commercial buildings for walkways, platforms, mezzanine decking, safety barriers, trench covers and ventilation grates. OEM applications such as steps, guards or grilles. Standard panels, suitable for general flooring applications, are available in carbon or stainless steel in widths of 24" or 36", with bearing bars spaced at 1-3/16", 15/16" or 11/16".
Suitable for applications requiring narrow bearing bar spacing for aesthetic or functional reasons, such as handling heavier loads, meeting ADA requirements for wheelchair accessibility or accommodating any style of footwear.
Often chosen for extra traction and slip-resistance are available in all sizes. An abrasive SlipNOT® anti-slip surface is also available.
Steel Grating Finish
The standard is unfinished (mill finish). Hot dip galvanized, painted, powder coated or special finishes are available. In some applications, stainless steel grating may require secondary finishing, such as chemical cleaning, abrasive blasting or electropolishing.
BarnettBates Offers Non-Welded Rectangular Crossbar and Riveted Grating
Also available by special order are non-welded retangular crossbar and riveted grating. With riveted grating, bearing bars are permanently riveted to reticuline bars to form a very rigid product well suited to absorb shock and impact loading such as that from vehicular traffic.
