Floor Grating – General Purpose

Any grating with a mesh size of 22mm or more is classified as general purpose. These gratings are available in a wide range of apertures with alternative sections of bearing and transverse bar to meet loading, span and ventilation requirements. Framed panels are manufactured to custom-sizes for applications such as walkways, balcony decking, ventilation grilles, service platforms, escape stairs and brise soleil.

Gratings are supplied with fixing clips to clamp the panel to the support structure.

Panels and support steelwork are supplied hot-dip galvanized with an option for an additional polyester powder coating to any RAL colour.

Type PL (pressure locked): pressed gratings manufactured exclusively from flat bars. They are available in the following mesh sizes (c/c): 22×22, 22×66, 25×66, 33×33, 33×66, 44×22, 66×22 and 66×33 mm. The bearing bar can vary from 25×2 to 150×5 mm and the transverse bar from 10×2 to 20×4 mm.

Type PLX (pressure locked): cross pressed gratings manufactured exclusively from flat bars and are recommended for areas which may be subjected to stress from heavy duty vehicles or as turning points. They are available in the following mesh sizes (c/c): 22×66, 33×33, 33×66, 25×66 and 66×33 mm. The bearing bar can vary from 30×4 to 150×6 mm and the transverse bar from 15×4 to 30×6 mm.

Type PLXE (pressure locked): cross pressed gratings manufactured exclusively from equal depth flat bars. This delivers the same egg-crate appearance from both above and below for a pleasing aesthetic. The flat bars also provide a greater level of shading for brise soleil applications. PLXE gratings are available in the following mesh sizes (c/c): 33×33, 44×44, 25×66 and 66×33 mm. The bars can vary in section from 25×2 mm to 70×5 mm.

Type-EF (electrofused): manufactured from flat bearing bars with either plain round or twisted transverse bars.
EF gratings with plain round bars are available in the following mesh sizes (c/c): 22×76, 22×38, 25×76 and 25×25 mm. The bearing bar can vary from 25×3 to 80×4 mm and the transverse bar from 4-6mm in diameter.
EF gratings with twisted round transverse bars for industrial applications are available in the following mesh sizes (c/c): 30×100, 30×50, 34×76 and 34×38 mm. The bearing bar can vary from 25×3 to 70×4 mm and the transverse bar from 4-6mm.
