How Grating is made

Electric welding, also known as electro-forged, is a thermoelectric process in which heat is generated by the passage of electric current. For a controlled period of time and under controlled pressure, the current passes through the junction area of the parts that wish to be welded.

This process is frequently used to manufacture steel bar grating and other types of grid.

In this manufacturing process, metals are welded without additional materials. This is achieved through the pressure and the electric current applied to the wished welded area.

During the process, metal parts (commonly steel) are pressed together by the welding machine”™s electrodes to assure a firm and constant electrical contact.

Subsequently, the electric current passes through the electrodes and heats them until their junction spot melts. The two pieces”™ of molten metal are combined and they join together. When current stops both pieces solidify, forming a solid metallic connection between both pieces.

The Use of Grating?

The use of grating has increased significantly in construction projects. This is due to its versatility making it perfect for many areas where other types of products would”™ve been considered before.

In industrial markets, grating is usually used in platform and industrial floors, as well as on stairs, ramps, storm drains, and among many others.


Regarding its architectural aspect, and due to its modern design and variety of finishes, grating fabricated products adapt perfectly to the construction environment; in addition, provide great durability and security. A wide variety of Architectural Products are available, such as: fences, benches, louvers, hand railings, balconies, and others.

When it comes to choosing a quality material, grating is an excellent option for many reasons: it can be custom fabricated to fulfill specific drawings requirements (custom fabricated grating); it has different loads capacities (Types of Grating); and, above all offers high resistance and elegance. It is also a product that can be found in different finishes, such as: natural steel, black anticorrosive enamel and galvanized.
