General Information of Steel Grating:

  1. Bearing bar-A flat bar withstanding the main load is in consistent with the two adjacent bearing bars.
  2. Bearing bar pitch-The distance center to center of the two adjacent bearing bars.
  3. Cross bar-The connecting bars, made from twisted bar, round bar or flat bar, which extend across the bearing bars.
  4. Cross bar pitch-The distance center of the two adjacent cross bars.
  5. Length-The maximum dimension of a grating panel, measured parallel to the bearing bars, & in the same direction as the bearing bars.
  6. Width-The maximum dimension of a grating panel, measured perpendicular to the bearing bars, & in the same direction as the cross bars.

General Usage of Grating:

  2. Steel grating with 40mm bearing bar pitch is one of most economical & lightest types. It should be the best choice to customer on the occasion when the clear span is small.
  3. Steel grating with 60mm bearing bar pitch & 50mm cross bar pitch is developed specially for mining industry. As it can avoid the mineral splashing down on board, it’s appointed to use in fabrication plant, transfer terminal & other ares of mining.
