We have many types of gratings available, consisting of

  • Welded Steel and Pressure Locked

Bar Gratings thickness measure .75″ to 6″ high. Finishes offered are mill finish, painted, powder coated, or galvanized with either smooth top or a serrated top. Grating can have either untrimmed ends (open fingers), or trim banded (closed ends).

Grating can be provided to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act if requested. All of our gratings are load tested to ensure strength and safety. On large fabricated jobs, we will prepare drawings for your approval and erection.
