Which material is ideal for your walkway needs?

Dec 14, 2016, 07:18 AM by Corby Bender

Making the right decision when it comes to outdoor walkways and platforms is absolutely crucial for safety and productivity on any job site. However, with so many options available, picking the optimal material isn't always easy.

Fortunately, Webforge offers a number of high-quality grating profiles that are suitable for many different applications. Let's take a look at how this grating improves safety and what materials are available.

Slip resistance with Webforge platforms

Mitigating the risk of slips and falls is of the utmost importance in any project.

For any project, mitigating the risk of slips and falls is of the utmost importance - the right slip-resistant flooring goes a long way towards ensuring a safe working environment.

While a walkway with good traction is key in all areas, an inclined walkway requires special consideration. As mandated with the AS1657 standard, Webforge can provide the necessary 10 millimetre prewelded square cleats needed for such surfaces.

Since any project will have unique circumstances that dictate material needs, Webforge consults with clients to ensure that the right grating profile and material for the job is chosen.

What materials are available?

  • Aluminium grating

As a durable and lightweight material, aluminium is an excellent choice for applications that require more movement of materials without sacrificing on structural integrity. Webforge aluminium grating also has a pleasing appearance, suitable for projects that depend on visual quality.

A 60636-T6 aluminium alloy, this grating is well-suited to industrial and architectural applications.

  • Fibre-reinforced plastic grating

A nonmetal material, fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) grating is made from fibreglass. Since FRP grating is one moulded piece, it can accommodate an impressive load capacity - making it an ideal choice for heavy-duty applications. This grating also provides superior resistance against damage from the harsh and corrosive environments that can be found on some job sites.

Webforge FRP Grating contains a coarse grit in the composite resin, as well as an anti-skid surface. These factors work together to provide exceptional traction and slip resistance.

  • Steel and stainless steel grating

Few materials offer the strength and hardiness of steel, which means this is the go-to option for high-impact tasks. Manufactured from a minimum 250-grade mild steel, this grating will meet relevant industry standards while providing a dependable work surface.

For job sites where the risk of rust and corrosion is present, stainless steel grating is a more appropriate choice - delivering high levels of strength and durability.
