Improve transit corridor safety at your facility by making pathways stand out with painted steel bar grating from Indiana Gratings.
Painted steel bar grating is a series of carbon steel bearing bars joined to perpendicular cross bars at various intervals to form a load-bearing panel finished with one shop coat of paint. The paint protects the finished grating product during transit while increasing its visibility, which can reduce on-the-job accidents.
Designed to hold heavy loads with minimal weight, painted steel bar grating is an affordable way to optimize pedestrian and vehicle movement or maximize usable space. With a large percentage of open area, painted steel bar grating requires little maintenance and increases user safety with enhanced traction, ventilation, perceptibility and light passage.
Painted steel bar grating is available with carbon steel cross bars and bearing bars joined by welding, dovetailing, swage-locking or riveting. Welded painted steel bar grating offers durability at an affordable price, while those joined by dovetailing, swage-locking and riveting have a more refined appearance.
Applying a coat of paint makes steel bar grating more visible to users and defends the base metal from corrosion during shipping and installation. Paint is not an ideal long-term weather protectant, because the underlying metal becomes exposed as the paint wears with use and age. A galvanizing process is the preferred method to protect carbon steel bar grating from corrosion during its life cycle.
Robust and versatile, painted steel bar grating is used for a variety of applications. Examples include walkways, platforms, safety barriers, drainage covers and ventilation grates.
