Standard Panels and Fabricated Gratings

Standard Panels and Fabricated Gratings

Availability

SSG’s steel gratings are available in standard panel form of a general size of six meters long and one meter wide.

Other sizes are available upon request. SSG’s gratings can be customized and fabricated to any shape and size to meet our customer’s exact requirements.

Steel type

SSG’s gratings are manufactured from a special fully-killed steel that meets the requirements of good weldability and high load-bearing capacity.

This steel is also especially suited for galvanization, as it will allow the galvanized zinc to penetrate easily, hence the galvanized zinc will distribute uniformly throughout the gratings.

Classification

SSG’s gratings can be classified into two types according to the appearance of the bearing bars These two types of gratings are the ‘Plain Bar’ type and the ‘Serrated Bar’ type. The ‘Serrated Bar’ type has the ability to reduce slipping in offshore, wet, oily or icy conditions and will greatly inmprove the performance for these types of industries. In addition, both types of gratings can be supplied with or without banding bars.

Shown below are the six standard types of SSG’s gratings preferred by the industry which have been developed to comply with applications and safety requirements worldwide. This will give our customers the opportunity to choose the ideal type of flooring to match their load requirements as closely as possible. Other bar arrangements may be available depending on quantity required; pleased contact our sales office for any further information.

Designation

Finishes

The following finishes are available:

  • Self Color for quicker delivery to customers who fabricate their own flooring

Gratings are galvanized to BS 729, giving a minimum average zinc coating of 610 g/sq.m. for sections of 5 mm and above and 460 g/sq.m. for sections of below 5 mm. Gratings can also be galvanized to conform to ASTM 123, giving a minimum average zinc coating of 610 g/sq.m. for sections of 5 mm and above and 550 g/sq.m.
