bar grating anatomy


Tru-Weld Bar Grating

Standard Mesh

Tru-Weld bar grating is forge-welded, a system in which


Fisher & Ludlow was a pioneer. In this process the bearing
bars and cross rods are permanently forged together by heat
and pressure into a single unit construction, resulting in greater
strength per pound than mechanical assembly methods.
The twisted cross rods provide a non-slip walking surface.

What does Type 19-4 Mean?

Bar grating

For applications where extremely slippery conditions prevail,


Serrated Tru-Weld offers a superior grip surface to the load
bearing bars.

Bar grating types are specified by bearing bar spacing


followed by cross rod spacing.

plain surface

In imperial measurements, bearing bar spacing is described


in sixteenths of an inch. Therefore, Type 19 has bearing bar
centers at 19/16 of an inch (or 1 3/16). Type 15 has bearing
bar centers at 15/16. Type 11 is at 11/16 etc. The second
number after the dash in the Type designation refers to
the cross rod spacing. Cross rods are available in either 4
(standard) or 2 (special) spacings.
All bar grating Types may also be described in metric units.
Again, the first number represents the bearing bar spacing
on centers and the second number represents the cross
rod spacing, both units measured in millimeters. Therefore,
Type 30-102 Metric equals bearing bars at 30mm centers
and cross rods at 102mm centers. This is the metric equivalent
of Type 19-4.

serrated surface

Note: Although the special 2 (50mm) cross rod spacing does


allow for less open space on the grating surface, it does not
affect the load rating of the grating. The most economical
and readily available choice for bar grating selection is
Type 19-4 (Type 30-102 Metric).

Spans and loads in the pink shaded area exceed a deflection of 6mm for
uniform loads of 5kPa. Experience has shown that 6mm deflection is the
maximum deflection to give pedestrian comfort, but can be exceeded for
other types of loads at the discretion of the engineer.

tru-weld Stainless Steel Bar Grating


Tru-Weld Stainless Steel Bar Grating provides a long-term
durable grating solution for caustic atmospheres where
corrosion resistance and minimum carbide precipitation
are important considerations. Typical applications include
stairs and platforms within chemical production and storage,
food processing plants, and water and wastewater treatment
facilities. Your choice of 304, 304L, 316, or 316L Stainless
Steel grades are available.
Heat from the Electroforge welding process discolors the
surface of the stainless steel in the weld area. For this reason,
Tru-Weld Stainless Steel Bar Grating is best suited for
industrial uses where cosmetic appearance is not a factor.

special mesh bar grating

special mesh information


tru-weld Special Mesh Bar Grating
Tru-Weld Special Mesh Bar Grating offer a variety of close
or wide space mesh options to suit specific aesthetic or
functional bar spacing requirements.

Close Mesh
Advantages of the close mesh grating style include
greatly increased load bearing capabilities and prevention
of fall through by dangerous objects such as heavy tools
or equipment accidentally dropped from above.

close mesh

wide mesh

Wide mesh grating options are designed for applications


requiring additional openness of bar grating to minimize
buildup of snow, ice, or other debris.
Available in most 1/8 and 3/16 Steel and Stainless Steel
bar sizes and select Heavy Duty bar sizes.

bar grating

Wide Mesh

Special Mesh

As with Tru-Weld Standard Mesh Bar Grating, Special Mesh


Bar Grating may be ordered with either plain or serrated
bearing bars. Similarly, panels are manufactured with a
standard 4 cross rod spacing but 2 cross rod spacing
is available.

*Special Mesh Bar Grating is a non-stocked specialty item.


For the most cost effective and readily available bar grating
option, choose Standard Mesh Type 19-4 (Type 30-102 Metric).

RailROAD Grating
Tru-Weld Steel Railroad Grating is special wide mesh Type 26-4
(Type 41-102 Metric) with bearing bars supplied serrated for
additional safety. It was originally designed specifically for
use as brake steps, running boards, walkways, and platforms
on railcars and locomotives. Railroad Grating is supplied as
standard AAR (Association of American Railroads) approved
welded bar grating with bar spacing at 1 5/8 centers and
cross rods at 4 centers.

heavy duty bar grating

heavy duty information


Heavy-Duty Steel Bar Grating
Steel Bar Grating with bearing bars thicker than 3/16 is
considered to be Heavy Duty and carries the designation
prefix Type HD. Available bar thicknesses are 1/4, 5/16,
and 3/8 in either a plain or serrated surface. Standard depths
range from 1 up to 4, although larger sizes are available
upon request.

Heavy Duty

Tru-Weld Heavy Duty Steel Bar Grating is commonly used for


floor trench and sump covers exposed to heavy equipment
traffic. It is used extensively throughout mining, power
generation, highways, airfields, and on truck terminal loading
docks and ramps. It is suitable for large single span conditions
or where grating must support extreme loads.

Aluminum Standard Mesh

Fisholow Rectangular
and I-Bar Grating
Fisholow Aluminum Bar Gratings employ a unique interlocking
system that joins the bearing bars and cross rods together
in panels of exceptional rigidity and strength. Lightweight,
corrosion-resistant, non-sparking alloys are ideal for pedestrian
platforms in chemical, petroleum, and food processing plants.
Fisholow gratings is recommended in most water and waste
water treatment facilities and is becoming increasingly popular
for use in architectural building designs.
Fisholow Aluminum Bar Grating is available in two bar profiles:
Rectangular Bar and I-bar. Similar to Tru-Weld Steel Bar
Grating, Fisholow Rectangular Bar Grating is offered with
a plain or serrated surface. Fisholow I-Bar Grating produces
exceptional load ratings at a fraction of the weight of its
rectangular counterpart, and is designed with a slip resistant
corrugated surface on the top of each I-bar.

rectangular bar

Both Rectangular Bar and I-Bar styles are available in special


mesh options.

Aluminum Standard Mesh

Fisholow treads with standard corrugated angle nosing are


strong, lightweight, and self-cleaning. They are ideal for
applications requiring corrosion resistance, non-sparking,
and rust proof grating. The corrugated angle nosing insures
maximum visibility and underfoot safety where needed most.

For tread widths 9 3/4, 10 15/16 & 12 1/8, standard end


plate is complete with 2 slots. See B dimension in chart.

Note: Bolts for mounting to stringers are not included.

Spans and loads in the pink shaded area exceed a deflection of 6mm for
uniform loads of 5kPa. Experience has shown that 6mm deflection is the
maximum deflection to give pedestrian comfort, but can be exceeded for
other types of loads at the discretion of the engineer.

Spans and loads in the pink shaded area exceed a deflection of 1/4
for uniform loads of 100 lbs/sq. ft. Experience has shown that 1/4
deflection is the maximum deflection to give pedestrian comfort, but can
be exceeded for other types of loads at the discretion of the engineer.

Grip Span Walkway Channel


Grip Span Walkway channels offer the same slip resistant
properties and self-cleaning advantages of other Grip Span
planks with the added feature of having built in kick-plates
along both sides of the channel length. The 5 toe boards
are integral parts of the channel and prevent tools and other
materials from falling over the edge of a catwalk.

Shur Grip Walkway Channel


Walkway channels offer the same slip resistant properties and
self-cleaning advantages of other Shur Grip planks with the
added feature of having built in kick-plates along both sides
of the channel length. The 5 toe boards are integral parts of
the channel and prevent tools and other materials from falling
over the edge of a catwalk.
Available in 24, 30, and 36 wide options.
*For 30 and 36 wide walkway, width dimension refers
to total overall channel width. For 24 wide walkway,
width dimension refers to the walking surface width.

Molded FRP

molded Fibreglass reinforced plastic


(FRP) grating
Molded Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) Grating is
manufactured in an open, heated mold. Continuous E-glass
fibers are interwoven in alternating layers while being
completely wetted out with thermosetting resin systems.
This continuous process produces an integral, one piece
construction which provides resilience and bi-directional
strength. Although the concave profile of standard plain
surface Molded FRP Grating provides excellent anti-skid
properties, an integral grit surface can be supplied for
additional slip resistance. Other benefits include:

FRP grating sheet size and lightweight construction permit
simple and economical installation. Fasteners, supports and
hold-down clips permit total flexibility in achieving the desired
configuration of the final installation.
Conventional hand tools such as a hack saw, sabre saw, band
saw or disc saw with metal cutting blade can be used to cut
grating on-site and to cut around special openings as required.
Cut ends should be treated with Edge Sealing Kits.

*Stocked at most warehouses in dark grey color, grit top or smooth top.

PULTRUDED FRP GRATING

Pultruded FRP Resins

Pultruded FRP Grating has all the benefits of Molded FRP


Grating including corrosion resistance, high strength to weight
ratio, and ease of installation. With its high fiberglass content
and I-bar or T-bar style bearing bars, Pultruded FRP Grating
has increased unidirectional strength and stiffness to
accommodate longer span conditions. Pultruded FRP Gratings
are offered in a variety of bar profiles and spacings, including
close mesh options that are designed for non-motorized wheel
traffic and ADA compliance.

Pultruded FRP grating is available in two resin bases


Isophthalic Polyester and Vinyl Ester. Isophthalic Polyester
resin is ideal for most industrial applications and is available
in standard light grey, yellow, or green. Vinyl Ester resin offers
superior corrosion resistance and comes standard dark grey.
Both are fire retardant with ASTM E84 flame spread rating
Class 1:25 or less.

Pultruded FRP grating types

Custom colors are also available.

BAR GRATING fasteners
Type D Saddle Clip
(complete with stainless steel self tapping screw)

Type D Saddle Clip


(complete with C-clamp and bolt)

Our most common and cost-effective fastening method.


Simply pre-drill a hole into the supporting member and drive
in the self-tapping screw. Designed for use with Tru-Weld Type
19 and Type 15 bar grating only (in 1/8 and 3/16 bar sizes).

Eliminates the need to drill supports or have access beneath


the grating during installation. The C-clamp slides between
the bearing bars to clamp the flange of the supporting
member and is tightened from above using a hex-driver.
For use with Tru-Weld Type 19 and Type 15 bar grating only
(in 1/8 and 3/16 bar sizes).

Available in standard galvanized or bare steel and stainless


steel options.

Type D Saddle Clip


(complete with nut, bolt, and bottom clamp)

This combination allows for fastening grating without drilling


into the supports. The Type D Saddle Clip holds the grating
from the top as the bottom clamp is tightened under the
flange of the supporting member. Designed for use with
Tru-Weld Type 19 and Type 15 bar grating only (in 1/8 and
3/16 bar sizes).
Available in standard galvanized or bare steel and stainless
steel options.

54

Available in standard galvanized or bare steel and stainless


steel options.

Type B Clamping Bolt, Nut, and Bottom Clamp

For close mesh Type 11 and Type 9.5 grating, a square collared
clamping bolt can be inserted directly between the ends of the
bearing bars and fitted through a bottom clamp. The rounded
bolt head rests directly on the bearing bars eliminating the
need for a top saddle clip.
Available by special order in bare steel, galvanized, and
stainless steel.

expanded metal

expanded metal information


EXPANDED METAL
Expanded Metal is manufactured from carbon steel or
aluminum sheets that are simultaneously slit and stretched
to create diamond shaped openings. The original metal sheet
may be expanded as much as 4 times its original length,
but is sheared down to stock sheet sizes.

expanded metal

Light weight and strength make expanded metal an


extremely versatile material
Ideal for partitions, enclosures, barriers, filters, walkways,
grilles, and machine guards
Available in Raised or Flattened styles in a variety of gauges
and opening sizes to fit any application
Standard sheets in stock for immediate shipment
Custom Shearing available

Raised Expanded Metal

Expanded Metal Terminology


Short Way of Design (SWD)
Nominal dimension
Long Way of Design (LWD)
Nominal dimension When referring to a sheet size the
SWD is always referred to before the LWD. For example a
4 x 8 sheet is 4 feet in the SWD direction and 8 feet in
the LWD direction.
Short Way of Opening (SWO)
Long Way of Opening (LWO)
Strand Thickness
Gauge thickness of the original base metal sheet prior
to expanding.

Expanded Metal sizes showing the abbreviation R are


considered to be Raised Expanded Metal.

Strand Width
Amount of metal fed under dies to produce one strand.

Raised Expanded Metal is a finished product as it comes from


the press. The strands and bonds are set at a uniform angle to
the plane of the sheet. This gives added strength and rigidity,
as well as a skid resistant surface.

Bond Shearing
Cutting expanded metal to size with the shear line falling
through the bonds. The result is an edge configuration of all
closed diamonds. For bond shearing the resultant dimensions
must be in a multiple of the full diamond dimensions.

Flattened Expanded Metal


Expanded Metal sizes with the abbreviation F are
designated Flattened Expanded Metal.
Flattened Expanded Metal has been cold rolled after the
expansion process to provide a smooth, flat, and level sheet.
The flattening process reduces the original gauge of the base
metal and the strand width increases slightly.

Random Shearing
The shear line falls at random points on the diamond mesh
pattern. Edges are open and diamonds are not matched.
Random shearing is necessary when the required overall
dimensions are not a multiple of the full diamond dimensions.

Expanded Metal Grating


Fisher & Ludlow manufactures two sizes of Expanded Metal
Grating, 3 lb. Grating and 4 lb. Grating. This style of Raised
Expanded Metal is produced from heavier gauge carbon steel
plates. Expanded Metal Grating is ideal for pedestrian traffic
and applications requiring heavier loads or larger openings
than conventional expanded metal options.
