Grip Strut Aluminum Safety Grating

Alro Steel is a distributor for Grip Strut® products, including Grip Strut® Aluminum Safety Grating. These products are noted for their serrated surface that grips soles of boots and shoes, providing a secure walking surface. The open design makes safety grating ideal for both indoor and outdoor walkways where ice, mud, snow, oil, detergents, or other substances may create a hazardous condition. Although Aluminum Safety Grating is an open design, the pattern is small enough that most hand tools or objects that may be accidentally dropped will not fall through.
The open design of Safety Grating allows for easy maintenance. Fluids will quickly drain through and snow and ice typically shear off of boots and shoes as people walk on the grating. The lightweight aluminum grating does not rust, and it can be cleaned by brush or spraying air or liquid on it. 
Although the aluminum material is lightweight, it provides an good strength to weight ratio. Grip Strut® Aluminum Safety Grating is an excellent combination of durability, safety with easy fabrication and installation, which also make this product economical in many walkway applications.
