IKG’s manufacturing advantages
A special IKG fabrication process includes cutting the product to the specific project length. The process is completed as the product comes off the welder to dramatically decrease scrap. This means you do not have to rely on the standard 20-ft and 24-ft lengths when fabricating your storage system. Decreased labor and material costs are in turn passed on the customer.
IKG offers our unique GrateCoat® powder-coat paint finish to ensure a high-quality and high-gloss durable finish that is applied consistently for any application. GrateCoat finish is for interior use only.
Anti-slip surfaces are critical in areas of heavy foot traffic along with the movement of liquids. Protecting your employees and products is easily done with our variety of slip-resistant options.
