Bar Grating Fabricating

Bar grating offers the ideal combination of strength, long-term reliability, safety, and economy. Especially when Marco fabricates it to our client’s specifications. Our warehouse is stocked with bar grating, but many of our clients need custom fabricated grating.

We can customize bar grating projects of any size and scope. From a simple weld to a complete catalyst screen we are here to help. To see a small sample of our fabrication projects check out our Fabrication Photo Gallery.

Heavy-duty bar grating is available for applications that require maximum strength.

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.

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.

Custom Platforms

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.
