The oil and gas industry works in the most demanding environments to power lights at home and fuel transportation on road, water and air. Enhance access and safety for workers at your energy application with bar grating products from Indiana Gratings.
Often exposed to hours of direct sunlight, high winds, corrosive saltwater and jarring movements, oil and gas industry conditions are harsh. Materials with high-strength and corrosion-resistant properties like aluminum, stainless steel and fiberglass are ideal for these environments. When carbon steel is used, a galvanizing process is preferred to protect the underlying material from corrosion during its life cycle.
Aluminum is lightweight, stiff, moisture resistant and available in a variety of bar sizes and spacings, with cross bars joined to bearing bars with flush-top, dovetailing, swage-locking, riveting or one-piece plank constructions. Work surfaces can be smooth or serrated.
Manufactured from alloy types 304, 304L, 316 or 316L, stainless steel bar grating is rugged, long-lasting and designed to withstand severely corrosive and high-moisture environments. It’s available in myriad bar sizes and spacings with welded and swage-locked constructions and plain or serrated work surfaces.
Combining unmatched rust protection with strength and durability in a lightweight package, fiberglass grating will deliver years of reliable service in demanding environments. Indiana Gratings can fabricate molded and pultruded fiberglass gratings.
Galvanized carbon steel is carbon steel material coated with a protective zinc layer to prevent premature rust and corrosion. Without protection, atmospheric conditions will corrode untreated steel over time. Zinc corrodes slowly, which extends the lifespan of the base metal it coats.
Oil and gas applications use bar grating for a variety of things, which include docks, ramps, platforms, trench covers, crossover platforms, catwalks, flooring, security fences and machine guards. Our team can help you select the best bar size, spacing and construction type for your application.
