Expanded Metal Grating
Expanded Metal Grating is made of steel plate which is slit and expanded in a cold-drawing operation. It is a heavy duty expanded metal, produced from carbon steel, aluminum, or stainless steel plate.
Expanded Metal Grating contains no joints or welds, each sheet is a single piece of sturdy steel. Each sheet is produced from low carbon steel plates up to 5/16" thick. The junctions of the strand and bond form a ridged surface for improved tractions. Grating is formed like a truss so that every inter-connecting strand acts as a structural member distributing the load stress in several directions across the supporting frame. The angular position of the strand and the bond makes the expanded metal grating stronger in deflection than steel plate material in original form. This product is available only in the regular or standard type and is not flattened.
Expanded Metal Grating is designed especially for use as a lightweight open steel flooring, is ideal for flooring, catwalks, platforms and stair treads, where principal use is for light storage and foot traffic. Its low cost and light weight, combined with high strength, make for a most economical construction. Expanded metal gratings are the ideal metal material for industrial walkways.
Typical applications include long length or catwalk grating - usually in 10 ft. lengths by 2 or 3 ft. widths. It is also ideal for flooring, platforms and stair treads, where principal use is for light storage and foot traffic.
