Floor Grating – Heavy Duty
Grating panels are made in a wide range of apertures with alternative sections of bearing and transverse bar to meet loading, span and ventilation requirements. Cross-pressed gratings provide greater strength when subjected to stress and are therefore recommended for areas such as the turning point of a fork-lift truck or heavy vehicle.
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 PLX (pressure locked): cross pressed gratings manufactured from flat bars of an unequal depth, both of which are notched to produce a secure joint to withstand stress. 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.
