Since our foundation in 1979, Argus Steel has grown to take on small and large-scale projects for clients in diverse industries. In 2018, we had the pleasure of providing powder-coated bar grating for a home located in the Shenandoah Mountains. This request called for our team to come up with a tailored solution that could complement the residential structure and survive seasonal temperature changes.
Our professionals were faced with the task of preparing specialty metal products for a walkway and second-story balcony. The project required 82 square feet of 1″ x 1/8″ aluminum bar grating powder coated in a sleek shade of black. Our client completed the installation independently, and the job concluded with the addition of hand railings featuring a classic filigree design.
WHY DID WE USE ALUMINUM BAR GRATING?
The team at Argus Steel recognized early on that aluminum materials would serve as a long-lasting solution for the project. The Shenandoah Valley experiences everything from mild conditions to freezing temperatures, so aluminum was an obvious material choice to resist corrosion and keep the job within the client’s budget.
Aluminum bar grating products from Argus Steel have an impressive strength-to-weight ratio. Open spaces between connections would make it easy for heavy winds to pass through, eliminating concerns about environmental factors. A major benefit of using aluminum in this design was the fact that the client could maneuver the materials in tight quarters for ease of installation.
Additionally, aluminum bar grating products call for minimal maintenance, and sections can be wiped clean with standard disinfectants.
