Interstate Gratings was awarded the grating project for the San Francisco International Airport (SFIA) — Individual Carrier System (ICS) Baggage Handling System. This project is the first ICS Baggage Handling System built in the United States. As a company that performs high-quality and high-standard work, we were honored to be the grating supplier. This project consisted of an extremely aggressive schedule in multiple phases.

This state-of-the-art Baggage Handling System requires the highest precision and attention to detail. We helped value engineer the bar grating to ensure it met the budget constraints of the project. We derived a grating solution that met the budget, the performance, and the fire suppression features that the project and system required.

Dedicated to this project, the IG team was able to execute and meet the schedule, delivering 39 shipments of the grating to date measuring up to 896,424 pounds.

Construction of the next phase of the ICS Baggage Handling System is set to begin in 2021-2022 and IG will be excited to further execute the plan with the high-quality service they are known for.
