How is Fabricated Bar Grating Used?
Industrial Catwalks, Elevated Walkways, Mezzanines, and more
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.
Custom Catwalk Grating
Custom Catwalks from Marco can include grating walking surfaces, 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.
You will find this fabricated grating in wastewater treatment plants, billboard walkways, and more.
Custom Mezzanines Made from Strong Bar Grating
Our steel fabricating professionals are well qualified to create your modular mezzanine to fit your exact dimensions. Bar grating mezzanines are a great solution when you need extra space but don’t have more square footage in your facility. That’s where we come in, call us to inquire about our offerings.
We have a rush service and are available 24 hours a day call (713) 705-5942.
Hinged Grating and Access Hatch Panels
Hinged Grating or access hatches are frequently made from bar grating and fabricated with hinges, lifting handles, and even locking devices for security. They can hinge onto other grating parts or act as a support. The access panels are common in fall protection and traveling platforms.
Trench Grates and Embedded Angles
Marco can custom fabricate trench grating and embedded angle frames and pour frames for those gratings used in concrete applications. This turn-key solution will save time, money, and ensure proper fit. Marco manufactures a wide range of metal grating for pedestrian, heavy-duty H20 traffic, and airport (280PSI) loading. We manufacture welded bar grates, riveted reticuline grates, and special grates for roadway applications.
Platforms and Crossover Platforms
We custom fabricate grating for skid-mounted equipment platforms such as gas metering skids, fractionation systems modular refrigeration systems with cutouts for penetrations, toe plate, and edge banding. Our platforms are completely custom to fit the need and functions of our clients.
Crossover Platforms differ somewhat because they are floor-supported. Crossovers are often fabricated using bar grating because it adds stability and long-lasting features. We also fabricate rooftop walkway systems and pipe bridges.
Our fabrication department has a wealth of knowledge about all types of platforms for many industries including power and energy and of course oil and gas. We offer complete take-offs, manufacturing, and erection field drawings to help your project run smoothly. Our Houston-based office is conveniently located. Contact us today to learn more.
Custom Bar Grating Stair Treads
Marco Specialty Steel has a huge stock full of bar grating planks and stair treads but sometimes our clients need custom-sized treads or grating cut to size. We often custom cut and weld bar grating stair treads to our client’s exact measurements and specifications. One example was our client needed custom-sized stair treads with weight-bearing stabilizer bars. See this project and more on our fabrication photo gallery page.
