Aluminium Grating - Strong, yet lightweight
Webforge Aluminium Grating is recommended for corrosive applications where light weight is important, and/or quality of appearance is paramount.
Manufactured in 6063-T6 Aluminium, Webforge grating is manufactured in either stock panels, or customised to length, and can be utilised in an array of applications; both industrial and architectural.
Aluminium Grating allows the building or project designer to incorporate a functional element, which also has an aesthetic appeal.
Slip Resistance – choosing the right top surface
The slip resistance of the flooring and walkway profile is an essential consideration in any project. Standard aluminium grating comprises plain square edge flat bars. In order to increase slip resistance there are a number of options available for consideration, especially for sloping walkways.
As mandated by AS 1657-2013, the use of 10 x 10mm square bar cleats is required for additional security under foot on walkways with a slope >100
. Note: ISO 14122.1 recommends cleats between 10° and 20°.
Serrated grating improves slip resistance (Stainless steel grating, and any bars <25mm or >75mm deep will not be serrated.) In addition steel and aluminium grating can improve its slip resistance by setting the direction of walking over the floor, parallel to the load bars.
