Stainless Steel Grating
Webforge offers a range of Stainless Steel grating profiles, ideally suited to applications where the potential for rust or corrosion is a major consideration. Webforge can manage the entire project specification, from drawing and layout specification, through manufacturing and quality control to delivery and installation.
Stainless Steel grating is usually custom manufactured to project specifications. The standard panel sizes are generally the same as steel grating stock panels, depending on profile chosen. Standard panel length is usually 4000mm. Sizes will vary according to availability of flat bar.
Slip Resistance – choosing the right top surface
The slip resistance of the flooring and walkway profile is an essential consideration in any project. Standard steel 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
. ISO 14122.1 recommends cleats between 10° and 20°.
Stainless steel grating can improve its slip resistance by setting the direction of walking over the floor, parallel to the load bars.
Pattern choice is also important; patterns with 100mm cross rod centres (Pattern A and C) have better slip resistance than those with crossrods at 50mm centres.
Standard panel sizes are usually manufactured to a flat bar span of 4000mm, as dictated by the availability of raw material. However, Webforge's expertise is providing the best solution for your access project; contact your local sales representative to discuss your application.
