Bar Grating Fabrication


Bar Grating Fabricating

Bar grating offers the ideal combination of strength, long-term reliability, safety and economy. It consists of a series of bars enjoined to perpendicular crossbars at predetermined intervals to create a strong, sturdy weight-bearing panel. While welding is the most common method used for manufacturing bar grating, it can also be press-locked, riveted or swaged-locked.

Heavy-duty bar grating is available for applications that require maximum strength. Bar grating is manufactured from high-quality materials including aluminum, carbon steel and stainless steel.

Industrial Catwalks, Elevated Walkways

Marco fabricates catwalks and elevated walkways for efficient and safe access in industrial and material handling settings. Our catwalk design meets OSHA safety standards and prevailing building codes for industrial, manufacturing, commercial or military facilities. Catwalks, also called elevated walkways, can be ceiling-hung or supported from the floor or adjacent structures, including racks or mezzanines. The walking surface of a catwalk can be grated steel or a solid surface, depending on your needs and environment.

Catwalk Accessories

Catwalks from Marco can include railings, gates, stairways and other accessories to customize them for specific needs and the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and OSHA’s standards for industrial use or use where the public has access.
