How is heavy duty grating different than regular duty grating?
Heavy duty grating requires a bearing bar thickness of at least ¼” inches. Anything less is not considered heavy duty according to NAAMM standards.
For your specific load requirements contact our heavy-duty grating specialists.
What finishes/metal types are available for heavy duty grating?
IKG heavy duty grating is available in a mill, galvanized, or painted finish.Heavy duty grating is manufactured in carbon steel and stainless steel.
You have the option of either a smooth surface or serrated surface for heavy duty grating. Serrated grating adds another level of anti-slip protection and is to be considered for environments that are in contact with liquids.
Bearing bars are required to be pre-punched to receive either a round (Type HW) or rectangular (Type EC) cross bar.
Type HW: Welded construction with round cross bars welded at each joint. All heavy duty grating is welded. We do not recommend the use of any other type of grating when the application includes heavy rolling loads.
Type EC: Welded construction with rectangular cross bar welded at each joint.
