galvanized grating

Grating is important in industrial, commercial and even residential settings where it is often used for outdoor or emergency access. Grating has been around for a long time and is generally a manufactured grid or metal lattice of parallel bearing bars held within a frame.

There are a number of advantages to pedestrian grating; it refracts direct light, yet lets light through. It does not form a solid floor and so allows air, noise, and water to pass between floors if required. This is great for an industrial setting, but its non-slip design also adds security and safety to users in wet or slippery environments. It’s often found in snowy or wet places. The robust nature of pedestrian grating means that it’s perfect for emergency exits. 

Given gratings use outdoors, galvanization is normal. Galvanized steel is much more resistant to corrosion than even our top-notch modern steels. Galvanization is where a protective layer of zinc is applied, coating the steel to prevent corrosion and rusting. While stainless steel offers this same protection, it is much more expensive. Generally, unless there is a very good reason (such as prolonged exposure to acid), galvanized grating is the way to go.

Galvanized Grating At Bushwick Metals

At Bushwick Metals, we have a huge selection of galvanized steel gratings. Our grating is manufactured using the automatic weld forge method, which is made by electronically fusing the steel crossbars to the loaders. The Automatic Weld Forge Method results in a sturdy one-piece constructed panel that can be applied and installed quickly and easily. 

Our grating is available with either smooth or serrated surfaces. Typical applications for our range are floors, decks, fire escapes, and walkways. They are available in various finishes: black painted, galvanized, or mill finish bare. We make our galvanized gratings to NAAMS Standards
