Aluminum plank grating from IKG® is the perfect solution for applications where a low cost, easy to install, lightweight yet strong product is required.
The strength of aluminum plank grating comes from the bearing bars. I-beam sections form the integral part of the extrusion, so punch outs do not weaken the aluminum plank. The cut-out portions of the surface allows the passage of light, heat and air, but does not reduce the load-bearing capacity of the flooring. The integral I-beam vertical supports provide an excellent strength to weight ration.
All IKG aluminum plank grating features a flush surface for added comfort and safety. Both rectangular, square and circular patterns are available with horizontal or bi-directional ridges to reduce the chance of slipping. The aluminum material means the plank is non-magnetic, non-sparking and corrosion resistant in most environments.
High quality extruded aluminum plank sections are available in sizes and styles to meet every application. Plank sections are 6-in. wide with lengths up to 26 ft. Our distribution centers and factories are standing by to fill your order.
Aluminum plank grating is available from IKG in punched and un–punched configurations. Un–punched grating is best when a lightweight, solid floor is required. Punched grating provides the added benefits of allowing passage of air and light. Its architectural appearance and low-maintenance makes it ideal for many applications.
Water and wastewater treatment plants
The odor control and corrosion resistance features make IKG aluminum plank grating ideal for wastewater treatment plants, especially in the clarifier areas of the plant where the scrubbers are located.
The high strength ration per pound make aluminum plank grating ideal for truck beds in both commercial and residential use.
Aluminum plank grating provides a flush walking surface and high strength-to-weight ratio. The many surface types available in aluminum planking provide a comfortable, safe walking surface for pedestrian walkways in cities and municipalities.
Aluminum plank grating is ideal for large surface areas where machinery and equipment will be located. Some examples include factories, gas compression stations and distribution centers.
