STANDARD MESH TYPES - Stock width of panels, 2' and 3'. Stock length panels 20' and 24'. For 3/16" main bars 5/16" hexagonal cross bars are used. For 1/8" main bars 1/4" hexagonal bars are used.
CLOSE MESH TYPES - Stock width of panels, 2' and 3'. Stock length panels 20' and 24'. For 3/16" main bars 5/16" hexagonal cross bars are used. For 1/8" main bars 1/4" hexagonal cross bars are used.
SMOOTH SURFACES - Smooth surface steel grating is available in a wide variety of materials for many applications.
SERRATED SURFACES - Serrated surfaces are available on many types of grating. The serrated surface provides a safe, slip-resistant surface. These surfaces offer more secure footing where a variety of liquids such as oil, chemicals, or water are present.
FLATTENED EXPANDED METAL
Flattened expanded metal is manufactured by passing the standard expanded sheet through a cold roll reducing mill. Flattened expanded metal turns the strands and bonds down to provide a flattened surface, reducing the thickness (gauge) and elongating the pattern. Thickness may vary plus or minus 10% from published dimensions.
STANDARD EXPANDED METAL
Standard expanded metal as it comes from the press. The strands and bonds are set at a uniform angle to the plane on the sheet. This gives added strength and rigidity, as well as skid-resistant surface. Standard expanded metal is abbreviated XM.
Grating is a standard expanded metal pattern produced from heavier gauge low carbon steel plates. Strands and the openings of grating are considerably larger than other meshes. It is ideal for use wherever a strong, durable, lightweight surface is needed. Although used primarily for pedestrian traffic, grating can accommodate heavier loads if properly supported.
GRIP STRUT® Safety Grating
GRIP STRUT® is a lightweight metal grating designed for safety underfoot. The unique one-piece diamond shaped construction provides slip resistance in all directions. GRIP STRUT® is ideally suited for all walking/working surfaces where mud, ice, snow, grease, oil and detergents create slippery or hazardous conditions.
PERF-O GRIP® Grating
Perf-O Grip® is a plank metal grating offering a slightly less aggressive surface than Grip Strut®. Perf-O Grip® is made with a round hole pattern. Perf-O Grip's® light weight and resilient design makes the product easy to handle and install producing a very economical installed cost.
