Corrosion resistant, non-sparking, rustproof aluminum grating has many applications due to its light weight and high strength. It is ideally suited for use in corrosive environments and finds wide applications as walkways and platforms in sewage treatment plants, refineries, chemical processing plants, pumping and compressor stations, and aboard ships and barges.
Because it does not rust, it is commonly used in breweries, bottling plants, and food preparation and storage facilities. In munition plants, other volatile industries and areas, its non- sparking properties make it a must for safety. It is available in standard or anodized finishes.
Press-Locked Rectangular Bar Grating is constructed with the two close-tolerance slotted bars bonded together (positioned every 2" or 4") using tremendous hydraulic pressure. Permanent locking is achieved by forcing the deep cross bar into the bearing bar. Both the cross bars and the bearing bars provide walking surfaces in the press-locked design.
Rectangular bar grating in either the swage-locked or press-locked styles is your best choice when lateral stiffness is required. The rectangular bar is also available in a serrated surface for additional safety.
Aluminum grating is designed to be a high-strength, low-weight product that uses an I-bar or rectangular bearing bar with cross rods hydraulically swaged under high pressure. Thus, giving you a rigid, virtually maintenance-free flooring, ceiling or louvres product.
Similar to steel grating, aluminum grating can be pressure locked as an alternative to swage locked. This application process also allows the customer to choose a close mesh grate where certain special needs are to be met.
