When planning large projects such as industrial plants, commercial buildings or offices, you usually seek to obtain the highest quality in every single aspect. Personnel transiting during operation requires a safe working environment. In this article, we’ll explain how to achieve greater Resistance and Safety on Industrial Flooring.

  • Antiskid flooring
  • Easy installation
  • Adaptability to complex patterns of the future covered area (Custom Fabricated Grating)
  • High ratio Load-Weight
  • Nonmagnetic, non-sparking and corrosion resistant flooring (Hot Dip Galvanizing)

It is important to notice that Steel Bar Grating offers its maximum resistance only if it is properly installed. Therefore we recommend reading Top 4 common mistakes in Steel Bar Grating Installation, to ensure a longer life to your project.
