The heavy-duty Grate-Lock® design has been specifically developed to enhance loading performance. Grate-Lock® walkways, stair treads and planks feature hundreds of dimples that ensure excellent footing in all types of weather conditions and extreme work environments. You can choose between a textured grating that provides maximum safety for pedestrian traffic and a non-textured surface that can accommodate rolling traffic or racked decking. The bolt-together slotted assemblies ensure a fast, hassle-free installation. See our Grate-Lock® Accessories page for directions and information.
Grate-Lock® also includes products such as solid deck plating. This is the ideal option when you need a smooth, solid, durable surface at your worksite. Solid deck plating offers the advantage of fast, low-cost installation and the lack of constant maintenance ensures a low cost of ownership over time. Pre-galvanized solid deck planking is also easy to replace. In short, the advantages are:
- Cost saving inner locking design
- Easy to fabricate
- Fast bolt together assembly
- Slip-resistant walking surfaces
- Full line of custom accessories
Grate-Lock® is available with or without sole-gripping dimples.
