ELECTRO FORGED STEEL GRATINGS

Grating is a structural element that has a high load-bearing capacity with a low dead weight and a high level of transparency. The positive-fitting connection of the bearing bars and cross bars with the surround make the grating not only a very stable, but also visually attractive product. As an extremely robust, safe yet light platform flooring, the grating is indispensable in all areas of heavy industry.

ELECTRO FORGED STEEL GRATINGS – Manufacturing Process

Our Electroforged Gratings are made using the Electro-Forging process. Gratings are manufactured by PLC controlled equipment which combines high hydraulic pressure (more than 100 Tonnes) and high electric current (approx. 2200 amps) to electro-forge the cross bar and bearing bar into a single standard panel.

The Electro Forging process eliminates any crack or open joint. The strength of bearing bar is also retained. The square twisted bar (cross bar) are properly set-in the bearing bar such that it projects out of the grating top member by only a little more than 1 mm. This improves the slip resistance during walking. Electro forged Grating Panels are generally manufactured to 6000 mm lengths.

The panels are then cut to exact Spans as per the customer requirements. The cut panels are then taken for welding of the Banding Bar.

The gratings are then Hot Dip Galvanized.

Electro forged Gratings Applications:

o Industrial Flooring – Maintenance Walkways
o Drain covers – Drainage
o Compound Walls
o Light Traffic Access Ramps and Disabled Access Ramps
o Vertical Cladding in Architectural applications.
o Fencing (e.g. industrial buildings, roads, railways, power stations, airports)
o Heavy duty welded steel gratings are used in heavy-duty load areas such as airfields, highways, industrial plants, truck and bus terminals, parking lots and railroads yards due to its capacity to take very large loads.

Advantages of Electro forged Grating

• High load-bearing capacity with a low dead weight.
• Easy to assemble
• long durability in diverse environments
• Easy installation and removal for maintenance / repair.
• Hot-dip zinc surface treatment gives it a good anti-corrosion
capacity, shiny surface appearance and durability for uses.
• It is suitable for places and sites requiring ventilation and natural
lighting.

Types of Electro forged Gratings

  • Plain : Surface of Load Bearing Bar is Plain
  •  Serrated : Notches aremade on tip of the Load Bearing Bar to improve skid resistance.

Finish

  • Self-colored Grating
  • Painted Grating
  • Hot Dip Galvanized (HDGI) Grating
