Welded Steel Grating
When selecting a bar grating product, consider Welded Steel Grating first. Usually our most economical products, they provide a comfortable walking surface with nearly 80 percent open area. This, combined with the positive welded cross bar/bearing bar intersection, make these products our most popular. Manufactured from ASTM A-1011 carbon steel, welded gratings are recommended for nearly all industrial flooring applications.
To specify welded steel grating, first specify the type of grating from the table below. In the instance of standard welded grating, the "W" indicates the assembly of the grating shall be Welded construction, the "19" indicates that the bearing bars shall be 19/16's (1-3/16) inches on center, and the "4" indicates that the cross bars shall be spaced at 4 inches on center. Following selection of the type of grating, consult the Steel Bar Grating Load Table
to select the appropriate bearing bar size for the loads and spans to be serviced. Proper designation for standard welded grating with 1" x 3/16" bearing bars is indicated W-19-4 1" x 3/16".
