Anti-slip surfaces for institutional and government applications with heavy foot traffic

In heavy traffic areas, a safe, secure surface is important for pedestrian safety as well as compliance. While serrated bar grating works well for some applications, many surfaces require higher safety measures. In these special applications, MEBAC slip-resistant surfaces provide a consistently high result for coefficient of friction under a wide range of conditions.

Produced using a proprietary arc spray process, MEBAC provides a best-in-class, slip-resistant surface that is uniform and extremely durable. Molten metal is sprayed onto the surface and a grit media, available in different sizes for different applications, is then encapsulated with additional coats of the molten metal. No tape, resin or paint is used. MEBAC slip-resistant surfaces are fast becoming a critical part of many cities infrastructure to enhance safety and compliance.

Options for any application

A variety of materials, surfaces, finishes and coatings are available for your bar grating order. IKG bar grating comes in a variety of sizes; it can be custom fabricated to your exact dimensions or ready made for more standard sizes. Contact your local IKG representative for more information.

What is the ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities ACT (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. (

IKG povides several products that help cities comply with the ADA. For example our swage locked, pressure locked, steel and aluminum panels can all be fabricated so that they satisfy the maximum 1⁄2 – inch clear opening required by the ADA. These panels are excellent for pedestrian in institutional and government applications and areas where high visibility is a concern.
