Steel Grating. Steel bar grating is the staple of the grating industry, mainly used for flooring applications. They can be fabricated to suit any customers' needs. Welded Bar Grating. The most economical choice of steel grating product. This grating is manufactured by an electro-forging process, welding rectangular bearing bars and cross rods.
For heavy loads and demanding applications, Bedford PROGrate® pultruded fiberglass grating has the strength and durability you need. From vehicle traffic to ADA-compliant walkways, PROGrate FRP pultruded grating handles it all. Easy to transport, cut, fabricate and install.
Steel bar grating made of ASTM A-1011 mild steel is extensively used as flooring, walkways, platforms and ventilation grates for its recyclability and easy installation. Designed with standard and special bearing bar spacing for special orders. Riveted Grating. Riveted grating has superiority to load carrying capacity, strength, durability
Bar Grating can meet almost any load bearing or weight requirement and is the most durable grating for rugged applications. Bar grating is a top choice for strength, safety, and long-term cost. Bar Grating consists of a series of bearing bars welded (or otherwise joined) at various intervals to perpendicular cross bars to form a load-bearing panel.
At McNICHOLS we stock and fabricate many sizes of Welded Bar Grating. Our Welded products include styles from 3/4" to 3" Bearing Bars with bar thicknesses of 1/8" or 3/16". Applications include walkways, platforms and trenches. In stock panels or cut-to-size at all 19 locations. Call us today.
In these applications, the band bar helps reduce impact stresses by transferring loads to adjacent bearing bars and resists deformation caused by repetitive traffic patterns on open end gratings. Load banding, where each bearing bar is welded to the band bar, helps distribute load throughout the grating panel.
Platform grating, composed of several pieces of welded or press locked gratings are commonly installed in ships and industrial applications, such as refineries, power plants and offshore platforms.. Welded or press locked gratings. Carbon steel, galvanized steel or stainless steel material options. Walkways and stair treads can be supplied.
Bearing bar types. Steel grating is made up of bearing bar and cross bar as certain distance by welding or pressure bar have the types: flat type (also called plain type), serrated type, I bar type (I plain type and I serrated type).
Steel bar grating with different fabrications, materials and surface is used in industrial applications as stair tread grating and platform grating. Compared to the standard steel grating, which has a large bearing bar spacing, there are several types of close mesh gratings, with have closer bearing bar spacing for pedestrians wearing high
McNICHOLS ® Bar Grating brings safety, strength, durability, and character when installed in either industrial or architectural applications. It regularly appears on catwalks, factory floors, platforms, railing infill panels, and as Stair Treads. A series of bearing bars are welded, swage-locked, or press-locked together with perpendicular crossbars to form the panels.
Grating length = length of load bearing bar incl. binding bar. The span is the distance between two supports. The grating should be laid over two or more supports to reduce deflection. When stating dimensions the length of the load bearing bar is indicated by the first figure, . 810x 1000 mm.
Steel grate platform, also know as welded steel bar grating, the most strong and durable metal grating products. They are made from the mild carbon steel or stainless steel. We provide a full solution of steel bar grating, press locked grating, heavy duty grating, steel stair treads,plank gratings, safety grating, trench cover,etc. All the
Cross bars and bearing bars can be joined by welding, dovetailing, swage-locking or riveting. Welded light-duty steel bar grating offers durability at an affordable cost, while those joined dovetailing, swage-locking and riveting have a more refined appearance.
Riveted grating is often used in bridge decks for its huge load capability. Heavy duty gratings are manufactured with various sizes and spacings of bearing bars. The thicknesses of bearing bars usually come at 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8". Bearing bar spacings are customized to suit different applications.
Stainless steel bar grating is a series of bearing bars joined to perpendicular cross bars at various intervals to form a load-bearing panel ideal for use as a pathway for pedestrian and lightweight rolling traffic, which includes carts, dollies and hand trucks.
Heavy duty grating is one of our steel grating,also know as press weld steel to the extremely strong and durable for all the bearing application,which become the most important grating in the best bearing capacity makes them have a much higher performance in the decking and floor application.
Bar Grating with Smooth Surface or Serrated Surface. Four types of steel bar greeting with smooth and serrated surface offer you multiple and great choices for various applications. Steel bar grating with high strength and firm structure is made up of carbon steel, aluminum steel or stainless steel. Common bearing bar spacing. 7/16", 1/2
Grating must be installed with cross rods on top side to achieve strength specifications provided. Metal should be used for all grating supports. A minimum of 1” bearing shall be provided for bearing bar depths up to 2-1/4”; 2” minimum bearing shall be provided for bearing bar depths of 2-1/2” or greater.
