Welded bar grating is an economical design ideal for most industrial applications. It is manufactured by forge welding rectangular bearing bars and drawn cross bars creating a positive fused connection providing years of service under the most demanding conditions.
Welded Bar Grating is available in type “W” Welded Steel or type “WS” Welded Stainless Steel. It is available with bearing bar spacing ranging from 19/16″ (1-3/16″) to 7/16″ on center and with cross bars at either 4″ or 2″ on center. Welded Bar Grating is available with the standard plain or optional serrated surface.
Our strongest and most economical stainless product, type “WS” welded stainless steel gratings are manufactured by forge welding rectangular bearing bars and drawn cross bars. This welding process provides a positive fused intersection providing years of service under the most demanding conditions.
Type “WS” stainless steel gratings are available in “19 space” (1-3/16″), “15 space” (15/16″) and “11 space” (11/16″) bearing bar centers. Standard cross bar spacing is 4″ on center.
Products left unfinished will display discoloration from welding, cutting and grinding. Satisfactory for industrial or process applications where appearance is not a consideration.
IG GritWeld™ utilizes processes developed for thermal sprayed hard surfacing and incorporates anti-skid ingredients to the super hard substrate. IG GritWeld™ offers the ultimate in traction and longevity for extreme environments. It is usually applied after galvanizing but can be applied prior to the coating process as well.
Stainless Steel products typically require secondary cleaning. IG EcoClean™ provides a uniform and clean finish by abrasive blasting followed by passivation to remove manufacturing contaminants.
Bent clips bridging two bearing bars, available in galvanized steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Standard bolt holes are 5/16″.
Mechanical fasteners that are installed on the top surface of the grating and create a friction connection with the flange supporting the panel. “G” clips are easily installed without drilling or welding.
Plates punched with holes and shop welded between the bearing bars to facilitate bolting to the supporting structure. Bolts, screws or other connecting hardware shall be supplied by others.
To be used with narrow spacing of close mesh gratings that require a solid fastener. Counter bore allows for the use of self-drilling fasteners which are recessed below the top surface.
