Expanded Metal Grating

Grating is heavy duty expanded metal produced form carbon steel sheet and plate which contains no joints or welds, as each sheet is a single piece of sturdy steel. Light weight and economical, expanded metal grating is ideal for use wherever a strong, durable lightweight surface is needed. It is the standard product specified by engineers for use in catwalks, ramps, stairs, platforms, heavy duty shelving, truck-cab safety screens, cold storage, ship and offshore rig flooring and in partitions where high security is important. Generally, carbon steel expanded metal grating works well wherever a durable, cost-effective, non-slip surface is required.

The high percentage of open area, characteristic of expanded metal grating, allows snow, water and oil to drain off easily, thus maintaining the excellent slip-resistant surface. The same high percentage of open area also allows excellent passage of heat and light and contributes to walkway cleanliness. Where building maintenance and safety are important considerations, these features are outstanding.

Expanded Grating is available in plain steel styles ranging from 3 to 6.25# per square foot; Catwalk Grating, 4.27# per square foot; Aluminum Expanded Grating, 2# per square foot.

Expanded metal flooring and other grating products are easy to install and require little maintenance. What’s more, expanded metal grating comes at a much lower price point than traditional bar gratings, providing an economical solution for cost-conscious companies with tight budget restrictions.
