Riveted Bar Grating With Smooth & Serrated Surfaces for Industrial Application

Riveted bar grating derives its name from the use of high-strength rivets to bond the reticulated bars to the bearing bars. Mechanically and hydraulically operated riveting tools are used to individually cold press each rivet, which fuses the reticulated and bearing bars together and forms a solid joint. Riveted bar grating with smooth and serrated surfaces can be constructed of either carbon steel, aluminum or stainless steel.

Main Benefits of Riveted Bar Grating

When compared to other types of grating, such as welded or aluminum swage-locked, riveted bar grating has many advantages in industry applications.

  • Greater Load Capacity: It can provide greater load capacity for the equivalent span and depth. The process of riveting the reticulated bars to the bear bars also enhances the grating's resistance to buckling and shuddering. They are perfect choices for heavy loads.
  • Anti-Slip Effect: It is available with a smooth or serrated surface that is ideal for high traffic areas. The serrated surface provides excellent slip resistance performance, which can be used in wet and slippery places, protecting pedestrians from slipping and ensuring pedestrian safety.
  • Fatigue & Corrosion Resistance: Being the oldest form of grating, galvanized surface treatment is a strong, fatigue and corrosion resistant solution, which ensures the long service life of riveted bar grating in industrial flooring, mezzanine decking, platforms, walkways, and stair treads.
  • Acid & Alkali Resistance: Stainless steel riveted bar grating has excellent chemical stability, which can be used in salty and other chemical corrosive industrial environments.

Applications

Riveted bar gratings are a strong, durable and impact resistant solution. Riveted grating offers superior resistance to impact and fatigue. In addition, riveted bar grating products are available with a smooth or serrated surface that is ideal for high traffic areas.

They are suitable for applications requiring high strength and stiffness, including high-traffic pedestrian areas such as building entrances, bridge walkways and sidewalk grates or transit corridors for light rolling loads such as handcarts, forklifts and pallet jacks. They are widely used in the following areas:

  • Load-bearing staircases
  • Bridge walkway
  • Floor material of the pier
  • Outside platform of the mall
  • Well cover
