THE BAR GRATING ADVANTAGE:
For more than 80 years, metal bar grating has been the predominant choice among open metal flooring products. Features that make bar grating the preferred product include:
Appropriate Materials – Manufactured from carbon steel, aluminum, stain- less steel and specialty alloys, bar gratings provide safe, durable and functional products for nearly all environments.
High Percentage of Open Area – Typically ranging from 50 to 80 percent, this allows for the unhindered passage of light, air and liquids, thereby reducing the costs for lighting, ventilation and fire suppression.
High Strength-to-Weight Ratio – Designed for maximum efficiency, metal bar gratings are capable of supporting loads ranging from light pedestri- an traffic to the heaviest vehicular and aircraft loads.
Product Flexibility – Metal bar grating and stair treads can be shop or field fabricated to suit the exact configuration of your applications.
Economy – In most cases the grating is shop fabricated to fit the contours and intricacies of each job, with the finish applied prior to arriving at the jobsite. Once anchored in place, the floor is immediately ready for service, thereby minimizing costly field labor.
Maintenance-Free – The high percentage of open area allows for excellent drainage and the free passing of debris, thus creating a virtually mainte- nance-free surface.
