Marco Specialty Steel is your supplier of the original Grip-Strut® safety grating. This grating is high strength lightweight metal grating designed for safety underfoot.  Its unique one-piece diamond-shaped construction provides slip resistance in all directions and is suited for all walking/working surfaces where mud, ice, snow, grease, oil and detergents create slippery or hazardous conditions. Grip-Strut® is commonly used for work platforms, crossover platforms, industrial flooring, catwalks, balconies, mezzanines, storage areas, walkways, and stair treads.

Other Benefits of Grip-Strut® Grating

Another important safety benefit of grip-strut grating is that the diamond-shaped openings are small enough to catch falling tools and other objects. The lightweight, easy-to-handle planks ensure quick, simple installation — one person can typically handle the entire installation process. This type of grating is also virtually maintenance-free. You will experience a low cost of ownership over the course of the many years of use in your facility or worksite. In other words, Grip-Strut® grating’s advantages are:

  • Lightweight
  • Easy to fabricate
  • Slip-resistant walking surfaces
  • Maintenance-free

Where Can You Use Grip-Strut® Safety Grating?

A Grip-Strut® walkway can provide a sturdy, slip-resistant surface that is ideally suited for interior or exterior locations where ice, snow, oil, grease, detergent or other slippery materials pose a constant safety hazard. A typical outdoor Grip-Strut® grating application is as ice bridge kits that protect and support the cable spans between bridge towers and shelters. The installation of Grip-Strut® stair treads also makes sense for the manufacturing of stairs in environments where the footing is treacherous.
