Expanded Metal
REGULAR EXPANDED METAL is a finished product as it comes from the
press after having been die cut and expanded. The illustration shows that
the strands and bonds form a sharp angle to the original plane of the solid
sheet.

FLATTENED EXPANDED METAL is a regular expanded metal which has


been cold rolled, leaving a flat, smooth surface. The length of the sheet is
elongated usually by 5% while the width stays the same.

CONCENTRATED LOAD: A load that is concentrated over a small area. Example, a


pedestrian load, or light equipment load. Concentrated loads are shown in lbs per ft.
of grating width measured perpendicular to span. (ie, in SWD Direction)
UNIFORM LOAD: A load that is equally distributed over all of the clear span. Measured
in lbs per sq. ft. (i.e., inventories stacked on shelving.)

.157

DEFLECTION: The deviation in inches from the original plane when the grating is
placed under a load.
CLEAR SPAN: The distance between supporting members measured from the inside
bearing point of one supporting member to the inside bearing point of the next supporting member.

AMICO GRATING APPLICATION GUIDE


This table is a convenient means of selecting grating for typical walk-way installations. If the distance between supports, and the load to be carried are known, the most economical type of grating to be used may be selected from the table below. Expanded metal grating has its greatest resistance to bending in the direction of the long way of the
diamond. The LWD should always be placed across the span for best results.

NOMENCLATURE

PRODUCT DEFINITION

C.S.F(hundred square feet) the unit of measure for price and


weight.

REGULAR EXPANDED METAL is sheet simultaneously slit and


stretched into a rigid, non-raveling open mesh. It is readily
available in carbon steel, aluminum and stainless steel.

DIAMOND OR OPENINGThis is the description of the open area


formed by strands and bonds. Normally the open area is diamond
shaped.
BONDThe point where adjacent strands intersect. The bond is
always twice the width of the strand.
SWD OR SWOShort way of diamond or short way of opening is
the dimension measured across the sheet in a direction parallel to
the smallest dimension of the diamond.
LWD OR LWOLong way of diamond or long way of opening is the
dimension measured across the sheet in a direction parallel to the
largest dimension of the diamond.
MESHThis is the nominal distance from the mid-point of one
bond to the mid-point of the next bond measured across the SWD.
Mesh is expressed in inches.

EXPANDED METAL GRATING is produced from heavier plate,


usually low-carbon steel, with larger diamonds. It is typically used
for walkways and platforms.
DECORATIVE EXPANDED METAL is manufactured with unique
shaped openings which possess great appeal for architects and
designers.
STAIR TREADSExpanded Metal Grating Stair Treads are
fabricated using 4.0# Grating, angles and bars. They are shipped
ready for installation on the job.

OPENING SIZEThe area enclosed by bonds and strands.

FINISHINGLimited finishes can be accomplished at


manufacturing plants. This includes hot-dip galvanizing and pregalvanizing.

OVERALL THICKNESSThis is the finished thickness and often


determines the selection of framing members.

Special finishing such as anodizing, enameling, and plastic coating


can be arranged by contacting your steel service center.

PERCENT OF OPEN AREAThese important relative percentages


are used by designers to calculate the degree with which light and
air can pass through a piece of expanded metal.

SHEET SIZEWhile expanded metal can be manufactured in many


varying sheet sizes, practical limitations are such that it is wise to
select sheet sizes shown in the catalog. Availability of sizes can be
determined by contacting your steel service center.

PITCHThe measurement from a point on one diamond to the


same point on an adjacent diamond.
STRANDThe single metal strip which forms the border of the
diamond, or opening. Strand width is the amount of material
advanced for expanding as differentiated from strand thickness
which is the thickness of metal from which the expanded metal is
produced.
STYLEIs the guage or thickness of metal from which expanded
metal is made. Usually, but not always, this conforms to
manufacturers standard guages. Style is expressed by a number.
Expanded metal grating style is expressed in lbs. per square foot.
FORMABILITYEach piece should be able to withstand a 90
degree bend with a 1/4 in. inside radius in either direction, without
fracture.
LEVELINGAll expanded metal products except grating are leveled
after having been expanded.
OUT OF SQUAREExpanded metal sheets are generally not
perfectly square when finished. Sheets must be resquared by
shearing on all sides for perfect squareness.
Reshearing at the mill is not usually done since most sheets are
sheared to size to be within tolerance.
CAMBERBow in sheet. It is measured by placing a straight edge
along the concave side of the sheet parallel to LWD, touching both
ends of the sheet. The maximum distance between the edge of the
expanded metal and the straight edge is the camber. A sheet may
be within a width tolerance and still have camber.

12

FLATTENED EXPANDED METAL is manufactured by processing


regular expanded metal in a rolling mill. This rolling reduces the
thickness of the sheet and provides a smooth flat sheet.

DISTRIBUTIONexpanded metal products are readily available


from large stocks maintained by your local steel service center.

PRODUCT SELECTION
The first step in the design of a product or fabricated assembly
incorporating expanded metal is to select the appropriate
expanded metal pattern, keeping in mind various product
characteristics.
The strength and rigidity of expanded metal material is determined
by Long Way of Design. On a walkway, for example, the LWD
should run perpendicular to the walkway support.
Diamond direction also affects air deflection and diffusion,
concealment properties and aesthetic appearance. Consult your
supplier for suggestions.
Most manufacturers can and do routinely furnish expanded metal
in special (non-standard) sheet sizes when requested. In this
event, it is important for the specifier to give some consideration
to the edge configuration of the sheet as it relates to any
particular requirement since the cost may be affected by the
manufacturing operations necessary to shear the edge desired.

Bar Grating
Welded Steel Grating
(pages 1435)

Standard Welded: AMICOs welded grating is


used universally for walkway and mezzanine
decking applications. It is ideal for most general
industrial and commercial uses. Standard welded
grating is generally considered to include grating
with bearing bars spaced at 1-3/16" or 15/16"
and is available in carbon or stainless steel.
Close-Mesh: Close-mesh grating is similar to
standard grating except that the spacing of the
bearing bars is closer, ranging from 7/16" to
13/16". It is suitable for applications requiring
narrow spacing for aesthetic or functional reasons. It is available in carbon or stainless steel.
Railroad: Welded grating with spacings of 1-9/16"
and 1-11/16" meet the requirements for AAR
approved safety walkway products. This grating
is designed specifically for use as railcar brake
steps, running boards, walkways and platforms.
Heavy-Duty: Heavy-Duty uses thicker (1/4",
5/16", 3/8") and deeper bearing bars. Although
the tables show bars as deep as 6", deeper
grating can be custom fabricated on request.
Heavy-Duty is used for airfields, highways,
industrial floors, ramps, docks, reinforced
concrete areas and specialty applications.

Press-Locked Steel
and Aluminum Grating

and rectangular aluminum counterparts. Materials include carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Spacings range from 7/16" to 1-3/16".

Swage-Locked Aluminum Grating


(pages 37-40)

Swage-locked aluminum grating is manufactured


with either an I or rectangular bearing bar.
These bars are permanently locked to the cross
rods with a swaging process which reshapes
the rods. Because of the flange width, I-bars
reduce the open spaces of the grating yet I-bar
swage-locked is lighter weight and less costly
than a rectangular bar grating with the same bar
thickness.

Duo-Grip Aluminum Planks


(page 48)

Duo-Grip planking is a one piece extruded


plank with exceptional strength and stiffness-toweight ratio due to its I-beam ribs. It is available
in either unpunched, square punched or rectangular punched styles to suit lighting and ventilation considerations. The design provides continuous walking surface for additional safety.

Riveted Steel and Aluminum Grating

Riv-Dexteel
(pages 5455)

Riv-Dexteel is a high strength grating which


incorporates a truss style design through the use
of a reticulated riveted bar in conjunction with a
straight bearing bar. It has been used for nearly
75 years as bridge decking, curb inlet grates,
industrial flooring, driveways across culverts and
heavy traffic areas.

Material Selection
Carbon Steel: Carbon steel provides an
economical, high strength grating for use in
most industrial and commercial applications.
Aluminum: Lightweight, corrosion resistant and
non-sparking alloys make aluminum ideal for use
in chemical, petroleum, hydro and food processing plants, sewage, water and waste treatment
facilities; munitions plants and other volatile
areas; aboard ship; etc.
Stainless Steel: Stainless steel is ideal for use in
caustic atmospheres where corrosion resistance
and minimum carbide precipitation are important
considerations. It is especially applicable for
chemical, food and hydro processing areas.

(pages 5051 / steel and pages 5253 / aluminum)

Riveted grating is especially practical for areas


where rolling loads are used because of its
smoother surface. It is available in both
aluminum and steel.

(pages 1521 / steel and pages 4147 / aluminum)

Because this grating is a system of interlocking,


perpendicular bars, it provides a smooth clean
look ideal for architectural applications such as
grilles, dividers and screens. It is used in the
same structural applications as its welded steel

Steel Bar Grating


Welded Steel Bar Grating is the most popular of all grating types due to
its strength, cost-efficient production and ease of installation. Universally
used in most general industrial plants as well as commercial buildings, it
has wide applications as walkways, platforms, safety barriers, drainage
covers and ventilation grates.
It is also ideal for use as mezzanine decking since it supports the
same loads as comparable solid flooring. More than that, its cost saving
openness maximizes the circulation of air, light, heat, water and sound,
while promoting cleanliness. And, where insurance codes permit, additional sprinklers can often be eliminated. Standard panels are available in
widths of 2', 3' or 4'.
Welded steel bar grating is resistance welded to create a rugged, onepiece constructed panel. The bearing bars are automatically resistance
welded at the contact point with the cross bars and, under a combination
of high heat and pressure, are fused together to form a permanent joint.
The cross bars provide a high degree of rigidity, yet retain a smooth flat
surface for free and easy walking.

Further fabrication or galvanizing is not recommended after the


material leaves AMICO.
Steel Welded Railroad Grating, in 1-9/16" and 1-11/16" spacings, is
AAR (Association of American Railroads) approved and specified for
brake steps, running boards, walkways and platforms for railroad cars.
Designed and engineered specifically for railroad use, AMICO-Klemp
railroad grating is used by both new car and car repair facilities since it is
interchangeable with other AAR approved gratings. The serrated bearing
bars provide additional safety and the openness of bar grating minimizes
build up of snow, ice and other debris.

Press-Locked Steel Bar Grating is often desirable because of its


clean, smooth look and excellent lateral support. It exhibits the same
strength, long life and openness as welded grating, although it is not
recommended for rolling loads. Instead of welding the joints, however,
tremendous hydraulic pressure is used to bond the two close-tolerance
slotted bars together. Permanent locking is achieved by forcing the deep
cross bar into the notched bearing bar.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 18,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-569 standard
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflec6'-6" 7'-0"
tions are theoretical and
based on static loading.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 18,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-569 standard
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflec6'-6" 7'-0"
tions are theoretical and
based on static loading.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 18,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-569 standard
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating,
6'-6"
the depth of grating required for a
213
specified load is 1/4" deeper than that
0.787
shown in the table.
692
General: Loads and deflec0.629 7'-0"
tions are theoretical and
222
191
based on static loading.

Steel Bar Grating


STAINLESS STEEL GRATING
solutions or atmospheres are present.

When caustic atmospheres are encountered, or when corrosion resistance and/or minimum carbide precipitation are essential considerations,
AMICO-Klemp stainless steel grating is the answer. The longer lasting
capabilities of stainless steel under these special conditions make it an
economical selection over the long term.

Stainless Steel Bar Grating is available in welded bar grating, riveted bar
grating, swage-locked and press-locked bar grating. Specify S, RS, SR/SI
and SP. Heavy-duty welded bar gratings and Riv-Dexteel can also be
manufactured from stainless steel. Specify HS, RSL and RSH.

It is ideal for use in food processing areas, breweries, bottling plants,


dairies and meat packing plants. Stainless steel can also be used in
power plants, sewage treatment plants, pumping stations and hydrocarbon processing facilities where various caustic environments are normal.
It also has application in shipboard and building industries where saline

The alloys below are available as standard products. Each conforms with
ASTM A 167. In addition, special alloys are available upon request.

General
Description
Type 304 alloys resist most oxidizing acids and
can withstand all ordinary rusting. They are
immune to foodstuffs, sterilizing solutions, most
of the organic chemicals and dyestuffs, and a
wide variety of inorganic chemicals. This grade
should be considered for use unless some special mechanical, physical or fabricating characteristic is required.
Type 304L is the low carbon modification of
Type 304. This minimizes the problem of carbide precipitation during welding.
Type 316 alloys have superior corrosion resistance especially to sulfurous acid compounds
and many chemicals used by the chemical
process industries. It is more resistant to pitting
corrosion than typical 18-8 alloys (ChromiumNickel), such as Type 304.
Type 316L is the low carbon modification of
Type 316. This minimizes the problem of carbide precipitation during welding.

Note: The above alloys conform with ASTM A167.

FINISH
Unless otherwise specified, stainless steel grating shall have a mill finish
as fabricated. As fabricated means as fabricated in AMICO-Klemps
shop without a subsequent finishing operation. Stainless steel will show
some discoloration around the joints due to welding. Finishes available to
remove discoloration include sand blasting and electro-polishing, the latter being used where bright finish is desired. Shot blasting or wire brush-

ing should be avoided since these operations can cause iron contamination which, if not removed, will cause rusting and discoloration of the surface. Such contamination can be removed by passivation.
Electro-polishing leaves a passive surface. The swage-locked and presslocked processes will not show discoloration due to welding.

LOADS AND DEFLECTIONS


A Load and Deflection Table for S-19 and SP-19 is on the next page. All of
the carbon steel bar grating products are available in stainless steel. In
addition, AMICO-Klemps rectangular bar swage-locked (SR) can be
produced in stainless steel.

heavy-duty (HS), Riv-Dexteel (RSL and RSH) and swage-locked (RSP),


adjustments must be made to the carbon steel and aluminum tables
found in this catalog. These adjustments will account for the differences
in modulus of elasticity and fiber stress between stainless steel, carbon
steel and aluminum.

Heavy-Duty Steel Grating


Heavy-Duty Welded Grating has the strength for heavy-duty load areas
such as airfields, highways, industrial plants, truck and bus terminals,
parking lots and railroad yards. Common uses are flooring, driveways,
subway and tunnel ventilation grilles, curb inlet grates, ramps, docks, etc.

Standard heavy-duty bar grating is resistance-welded for durability,


strength and safety using an automated electric/hydraulic welding
process. High temperatures, combined with high pressure, fuse the
bearing bars and cross bars together to form a permanent joint.

It is a sturdy grating to carry loads and maintain the same level over
many years of use. Whenever rolling wheel loads are to be used over the
grating, we recommend that the grating be load banded to add lateral
strength. Serrations are available on bars up to 3/8" thick to provide
additional traction for rolling loads.

Also, AMICO-Klemp is one of the few manufacturers that has the


capability of providing you with those really big grates. Our heavy-duty
fabrication department regularly custom fabricates grating to meet specific project requirements. Virtually any bar size and depth can be made
to order.

Heavy-Duty Steel Grating


HEAVY-DUTY WELDED
1-3/16" Center to Center of Bearing Bars

19-H-4

19-H-2

Cross Rods 4" C/C

Cross Rods 2" C/C

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 20,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-36
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth of grating required for a
specified load is 1/4" deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe pedestrian comfort.
These can be exceeded for other types of loads with engineers approval.
For deflections of uniform and concentrated loads, consult AMICO-Klemps
engineering departments.

Heavy-Duty Steel Grating


HEAVY-DUTY WELDED
1-3/8" Center to Center of Bearing Bars

22-H-4

22-H-2

Cross Rods 4" C/C

Cross Rods 2" C/C

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 20,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-36
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth of grating required for a specified load is 1/4" deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe pedestrian comfort.
These can be exceeded for other types of loads with engineers approval.
For deflections of uniform and concentrated loads, consult AMICO-Klemps
engineering departments.

Heavy-Duty Steel Grating


HEAVY-DUTY WELDED
1-7/8" Center to Center of Bearing Bars

30-H-4

30-H-2

Cross Rods 4" C/C

Cross Rods 2" C/C

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 20,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-36
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth of grating required for a specified load is 1/4" deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe pedestrian comfort.
These can be exceeded for other types of loads with engineers approval.
For deflections of uniform and concentrated loads, consult AMICO-Klemps
engineering departments.

2-3/8" Center to Center of Bearing Bars

38-H-4

38-H-2

Cross Rods 4" C/C

Cross Rods 2" C/C

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 20,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-36
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth of grating required for a
specified load is 1/4" deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe pedestrian comfort.
These can be exceeded for other types of loads with engineers approval.
For deflections of uniform and concentrated loads, consult AMICO-Klemps
engineering departments.

Aluminum Grating
Corrosion resistant, non-sparking, rustproof aluminum grating has many
applications due to its light weight and high strength. It is ideally suited
for use in corrosive environments and finds wide applications as walkways and platforms in sewage treatment plants, refineries, chemical processing plants, pumping and compressor stations, and aboard ships and
barges. Because it does not rust, it is commonly used in breweries, bottling plants, and food preparation and storage facilities. In munition
plants, other volatile industries and areas, its non-sparking properties
make it a must for safety. It is available in standard or anodized finishes.
Swage-Locked I-Bar Grating is the most widely used and provides
the strength equal to a rectangular bar of the same depth, but at far less
weight and cost. The I-bars are permanently locked to the cross rods
(positioned every 2" or 4") by a swaging process.
Swage-Locked Rectangular Bar Grating uses the swaging process
to permanently lock the cross rods (positioned every 2" or 4") to the rectangular bars.

SWAGE-LOCKED I-BAR ALUMINUM GRATING

36

Press-Locked Rectangular Bar Grating is constructed with the two


close-tolerance slotted bars bonded together (positioned every 2" or 4")
using tremendous hydraulic pressure. Permanent locking is achieved by
forcing the deep cross bar into the bearing bar. Both the cross bars and
the bearing bars provide walking surfaces in the press-locked design.
Rectangular bar grating in either the swage-locked or press-locked
styles is your best choice when lateral stiffness is required. The rectangular bar is also available in a serrated surface for additional safety.
Duo-Grip Planking, a one-piece extruded 26' long plank (standard),
is available only from AMICO-Klemp and has an exceptional strength and
stiffness-to-weight ratio due to its integral I-beam ribs. It is available in
either unpunched, square punched or rectangular punched styles to suit
lighting and ventilation considerations. The 6" wide panels are welded
together to form the desired panel width and an extruded aluminum end
bar is welded into place. The design provides a surer walking surface for
additional safety.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 10,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 12,000 psi
Material: ASTM B-221, 6063 or 6061
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4 deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Finish: Mill finish unless otherwise specified.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 10,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 12,000 psi
Material: ASTM B-221, 6063 or 6061
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4 deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Finish: Mill finish unless otherwise specified.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 10,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 12,000 psi
Material: ASTM B-221, 6063 or 6061
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4 deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Finish: Mill finish unless otherwise specified.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 10,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 12,000 psi
Material: ASTM B-221, 6063 or 6061
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: For serrated grating, the depth
of grating required for a specified load is 1/4"
deeper than that shown in the table.
General: Loads and deflections are theoretical and based on static loading.
Finish: Mill finish unless otherwise
specified.

Riveted Grating
Riveted Bar Grating is the first choice by many engineers for many applications. Compared to welded or swaged-locked grating, riveted has a
greater load carrying capacity for the same span and depth of grating.
Reticulated bars, riveted to the bearing bars increase resistance to buckling caused by vehicular loading conditions.

It is unparalleled where rolling stock and wheeled equipment are used,


especially those with casters. The reticulated bars present a smoother
surface for this traffic. It is very popular for use as flooring, ramps, docks
and other surfaces and it is ideally suited for walkways because of its
added walking comfort.

AMICO-Klemp riveted carbon steel and aluminum gratings utilize rivets which are individually cold-pressed using hydraulically and mechanically operated riveting tools. Thus, the bearing bars and reticulated bars
are sealed together as a high-strength joint, freeing the grating from the
residual stresses that cause warp and joint failures.

AMICO-Klemp can match your existing riveted grating when you are
replacing or expanding your installation. On special order, heavy-duty bar
sizes and/or widths greater than shown are also available.

U = safe uniform load, psf


C = safe concentrated load, pfw
D = deflection, inches
E = modulus of elasticity, 29,000,000 psi
F = fiber stress, 18,000 psi
Material: ASTM A-569
Deflection: Spans and loads to the right of
the bold line exceed 1/4" deflection for uniform load of 100 psf which provides safe
pedestrian comfort. These can be exceeded
for other types of loads with engineers
approval.
Serrated Bars: Normally we serrate the reticuline bar and raise it slightly above the top
surface of the bearing bars. We can also serrate the bearing bars. When
bearing bars are serrated,
6'-6" 7'-0"
the depth of grating required

Riv-Dexteel Bridge Deck Grating


Compared to other surfaces, Riv-Dexteel is relatively lightweight and frequently permits bridge widening without an appreciable increase in bridge
weight. It often allows resurfacing to handle heavier loads without expensive substructure work.

Riv-Dexteel is available in an RL and RH design. RL Riv-Dexteel


has bearing bars spaced 2-1/2" to 2-11/16", depending on the bar thickness, and 3/16" x 1-1/2" reticulated bars. RL is available in both plain and
serrated surfaces.

It is ideal where flooding, snow build up or icing is a potential problem


since its openness permits passage of snow and water that a solid surface does not allow.

RH Riv-Dexteel has bearing bars spaced 5-1/8" to 5-1/4" with 1/4" x


1-1/2" reticulated bars and 1/4" x 1-1/2" intermediate bars. In addition,
RH has 1/2" by 3/4" tie bars for additional lateral stability. RH is also
available with both plain and serrated surfaces.

In addition to its common applications as bridge decking and curb


inlet grates, it has wide applications in industrial flooring areas, plant
loading areas, driveways across culverts and other heavy traffic areas.

1) Riv-Dexteel is designed in accordance with AASHTO Standard Specifications for


Highway Bridges.
2) A = center to center distance between bearing bars
3) Klemp recommends bearing bars to be placed parallel to traffic. If the engineer
specifies placement perpendicular to traffic, measures should be taken to minimize the effects of out-of-place bending of bars due to vehicle acceleration and
braking.
4) The engineer must specify hold down anchors at ends and supports as necessary.

Note: AMICO-Klemp recommends bearing bars to be placed parallel to


traffic.
Serrated Bars: Normally we serrate the reticuline bar and raise it slightly
above the top surface of the bearing bars. We can also serrate the bearing
bars. When bearing bars are serrated, the depth of grating required for a
specified load is 1/4" deeper than that shown in the table.

Stair Treads
Manufactured to match the full line of our grating, there is an AMICOKlemp stair tread to meet your needs. AMICO-Klemp stair treads are
safe, self-cleaning, skid-resistant and economical. Steel and aluminum
stair treads are available in a variety of styles: welded, riveted, presslocked, swage-locked and Duo-Grip extruded aluminum.

less weight and lower cost. Rectangular bar, press-locked or swagelocked, stair treads provide a higher strength and stiffness-to-weight
ratio and are available with a serrated surface when additional safety is
required. Our Duo-Grip plank stair treads give you an exceptional
strength and stiffness-to-weight ratio.

Welded steel stair treads are the most widely used for their strength
and ease of installation and are universally used in most industrial and
commercial applications. Riveted steel stair treads have a greater load
carrying capacity for the same span and depth of bearing bar and greater
walking comfort. Both can be ordered with a serrated surface for additional safety.

All stair treads are custom fabricated to meet the size, width and
length specifications of a particular job. In addition, standard end plates
can be custom fabricated to meet special bolt hole size or location
requirements.

Aluminum stair treads, due to their light weight, high strength, corrosion resistance, rust proof and non-sparking properties, are ideally suited
for corrosive environments, food preparation and storage areas, and
volatile areas. Swage-locked I-bar stair treads offer you high strength at

STAIR TREAD TOLERANCES AND DETAILS

Both steel and aluminum nosings are available to add strength at the
point of greatest impact and provide a definitive visible edge for extra
safety. Choose our checkered plate nosing for normal use. For additional
safety, choose our cast iron or aluminum abrasive nosings or our
corrugated aluminum nosings, or dimple nosing available in carbon
stainless or aluminum.

Anchoring Details

Type H-3 Saddle Clip


The saddle clip bridges two bearing bars and is
attached with 1/4" self-tapping bolt, 1/4" self
threader, 1/4" weld stud or 1/4" bolt and nut
when hole is drilled through supporting flange.
Available for 15/16", 1-3/16" and 1-3/8" bearing
bar spacings (15, 19 and 22 space) in carbon
and stainless steel. Fasteners should be
specified separate from clips.

Welds
Recommended for all permanently installed grating panels.
Welds should be 3/16" fillet
welds, 3/4" long located approximately 6" from each side of panel
(4 locations) and one weld in
middle of panel at each intermediate support.

Type H-1 Anchor Clip


A flat head J-bolt secures a preformed plate to
the underside of steel bearing bars and structural
supporting flange. No drilling needed. Access to
underside of grating required for installation.
Available in carbon steel. J-bolt is 1/4" x 2-1/2"
for grating up to 2-1/4" deep and 1/4" x 3-1/2"
for 2-1/2" to 3-1/2" deep grating.

Attachment Locations
Attachments should be placed at intermediate supports in the middle of the
panels and at the four bearing bar ends, 6" from each side of panel. Welds
should be 3/16" fillet welds, 3/4" long. Heavy-Duty grating may require additional welding to meet application needs.

Weld Lugs
Weld lugs may be used for installations where grating is subject to
removal. Weld lugs are shop fabricated and must be specified at
time of grating order. Fasteners
are 1/4" minimum and supplied
by others. Location is the same as
Attachment Locations diagram.

Glossary
Anchor A device by which grating is attached to its supports.

tured of checkered plate, cast iron or aluminum abrasive material.

Band A flat bar welded to a side or end of a grating panel, or along the
line of a cutout, and extending neither above or below the bearing bars.
Load-carrying BandA band used in a cutout to transfer the load
from unsupported bearing bars in the cutout to the supported bearing
bars.
Trim BandA band which carries no load, but is used chiefly to
improve appearance and to protect open ends of bearing bars.

Press-Locked A method for manufacturing grating where the bearing


bars are locked in position by a specialized press fit with cross bar deformation instead of riveting or welding.

Bearing Bars Load-carrying bars extending in the direction of the grating span.
Bearing Bar Centers (spacing) The distance center to center of the
bearing bars.
Carriers (Punched Plate) Flats or angles which are welded to the grating panel and nosing of a stair tread and are attached to a stair stringer to
support the tread.
Clear Opening The distance between faces of bearing bars in a rectangular grating, or between a bent connecting bar and a bearing bar in a riveted grating.
Cross Rods or Cross Bars The connecting rods or bars which extend
perpendicular across bearing bars. Where they intersect the bearing bars,
they are welded, forged or mechanically locked to them.
Cross Rod or Cross Bar Centers (spacing) The distance center to
center of the cross rods or bars.
Curved Cut A cutout following a curved pattern.
Cutout An area of grating removed to clear an obstruction or to permit
pipes, ducts, columns, etc. to pass through the grating.
End Gauge The distance from the centerline of the last cross rod to the
end of the panel.
Finish The coating, usually paint or galvanizing, which is applied to the
grating.
Grating An open grid assembly of metal bars in which the bearing
bars, running in one direction, are spaced by rigid cross bars attached to
them.

Radially Cut Grating Rectangular grating which is cut into panels


shaped as annular segments, for use in circular or annular areas.
Reticuline Bar A sinuously bent connecting bar extending between two
adjacent bearing bars, alternately contacting and being riveted to each.
Reversible Grating Grating so constructed that it may be installed
either side up, with no difference in appearance or carrying capacity.
Rivet Centers The distance center to center of rivets along one bearing
bar.
Riveted Grating Grating composed of straight bearing bars and bent
connecting bars which are joined at their contact points by riveting.
Serrated Grating Grating which has the top surfaces of the bearing
bars notched for slip resistance.
Span of Grating The distance between points of grating support, or the
direction of this dimension. It must always be measured parallel to the
bearing bars.
Straight Cut That portion of the cut edge or cutout of grating which follows a straight line.
Swage-Locked Grating manufactured by altering the cross sectional
shape of a metal cross bar by applying pressure through dies.
Toeplate A flat bar attached flat against the outer edge of a grating
panel or rear edge of tread, and projecting above the top surface of grating or tread to form a lip or curb.
Tread A panel of grating having carrier end plates and nosing attached
by welding, and designed specifically to serve as a stair tread.

Length The dimension of a grating panel measured parallel to the bearing bars.

Welded Grating Grating in which the bearing bars and cross bars are
joined at their intersections by resistance welding or conventional hand
welding. A resistance weld is obtained by the heat produced by the resistance of the material to the flow of electric current causing the material to
become plastic. At this point, the pressure on the cross bar is rapidly
increased causing the cross bar to penetrate the bearing bar so that they
are fused together.

Nosing A special L-section member serving as the front or leading


edge of a stair tread, or of grating at the head of a stair. Usually manufac-

Width The overall dimension of a grating panel, measured perpendicular to the bearing bars.

Grating Design Data


SAMPLE CALCULATION: ALUMINUM
For a span of 5'-0", the minimum size bearing bar to sustain 225 psf load
is:
Type of Grating = 19-SI-4-64 aluminum swage-locked grating
Size of I-Bar = 1-1/2 x 1/4
Equivalent Rectangular Bar for calculation purposes = 1-1/2 x 3/16 (see
note 3)
Span = 60 inches
Aw = bearing bar spacing = 1.1875 inches
K= number of bearing bars in panel width = 12/Aw = 12/1.1875 =
10.105
F= allowable fiber stress = 12,000 psi
E= 10,000,000 psi
Sw = section modulus of grating per foot of width = Kbd2/6 = 10.105 x
0.1875 (1.5)2/6 = 0.711 in3
Iw = moment of inertia of grating per foot of width = Kbd3/12 = 10.105
x 0.1875 (1.5)3/12 = 0.533 in3
Mw = maximum bending moment for grating per foot of width = FSw =
12,000 x 0.711 = 8,532 in-lbs
Allowable Uniform Load and Deflection for 19-SI-4-64:
U = allowable load = 96Mw/L2 = 96 x Mw/602 = 96 x 12,000 x
0.711/602 = 227.5 psf
Du = deflection = 5UL4/4608EIg = 5 x 227.5 x 604/(4608 x 10 x 106 x
0.533) = 0.6 inches
Deflection is directly proportional to load (actual load/allowable load):
Dactual = Du x Uactual/Uallowable = 0.6 x 225/227.5 = 0.5934 inches
Dactual = 0.5934 inches > recommended limitation of deflection =
L/240=.25 inches

Try a grating with a larger moment of inertia to reduce deflection:


19-SI-4-64 (1-1/2 x 3/16 equivalent rectangular bar):
If Du = .25 inches, then Iw required = 5UL4/4608EDu = 5 x 225 x
604/(4608 x 10 x 106 x .25) = 1.2656 in4
Using a larger size: 19-SI-4-94 (Rectangular bar equivalent = 2-1/4 x
3/16)
Iw = K x Ib = 10.105 x 0.1780 = 1.799 in4
Allowable Uniform Load and Deflection for 19-SI-4-94:
U = allowable load = 512 lbs
D = deflection = 5UL4/4608EIg = 5 x 512 x 604/(4608 x 10 x 106 x
1.799) = 0.40 inches
Deflection is directly proportional to load (actual load/allowable load):
Du = Du x Uactual/Uallowable = 0.40 (225)/512 = 0.176 inches OK
deflection < L/240 (.25 inches)

Notes:
1) For additional information, see NAAMMs MBG-534, Engineering
Design Manual
2) Uniform loads in these examples and in the standard load tables

Safety Grating
DIAMOND-GRIP WALKWAY
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Diamond-Grip walkway is a one-piece metal plank grating manufactured
by a cold forming process in the shape of an inverted channel. The web of
the channel is the walking surface and has rough serrated edges around
diamond shaped openings. Diamond openings are complete with radiused
corners at the saddle and side channel location. The extended flanges support the load and provide a built in kick-plate (toe-board).

FEATURES & BENEFITS


Serrated edges around diamond shaped openings provide slip
resistance under slippery conditions such as snow, ice, grease, oil, etc.
Radiused corners reduce the possibility of stress cracks across
saddles or at the side of channels under various loading conditions.
Self-cleaning due to resilience of walking surface.
One-piece metal construction complete with a full height toe-board on
each side of the walking surface.
Lightweight design provides high strength to weight ratio.
Long life span requiring little maintenance.
Simple and economical installation as walkways are self-framing.
Adaptable to cost effective custom fabrication.

MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS
Grating shall be Diamond-Grip walkway, manufactured from (see
Selections below) and complete with an (4-12", 5") integral toe-board,
by AMICO-ISG.
SELECTIONS
ASTM-A-653, G-90 (Z-275) pre-galvanized 14 or 12 gauge steel.
ASTM-A-569, HRP&O 14 or 12 gauge steel.

Explanation of Load Type


U = uniform load (lb/ft2)
D = corresponding deflection (in) resulting from uniform load
C = concentrated load (lb)
D = corresponding deflection (in) resulting from concentrated load

Note:
All UDL and concentrated loads include a safety factor
of 1.67.
Strut deflection may become a limiting factor resulting in
lower load values as indicated in table.

Safety Grating
SAFETY-GRIP
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Safety-Grip is a one-piece metal plank grating manufactured by a cold
forming process in the shape of a channel. The web of the channel is the
walking surface and has large debossed holes, surrounded by smaller
embossed traction buttons.

FEATURES & BENEFITS


Embossed traction buttons provide superior slip resistance in all
directions and in all weather conditions.
Large debossed holes provide maximum drainage of debris and allow
up to 50% free air opening depending on channel width.
Self-cleaning due to resilience of walking surface.
One-piece metal construction.
Lightweight design provides high strength to weight ratio.
Long life span requiring little maintenance.
Simple and economical installation as planks are self-framing.
Adaptable to cost effective custom fabrication.
Can be easily formed in standard channel or custom shapes.

directions and in all weather conditions.
Large debossed holes provide maximum drainage of debris and allow
up to 50% free air opening depending on channel width.
Self-cleaning due to resilience of walking surface.
One-piece metal construction complete with a full 5" toe-board height
on each side of the walking surface.
Lightweight design provides high strength to weight ratio.
Long life span requiring little maintenance.
Simple and economical installation as walkways are self-framing.
Adaptable to cost effective custom fabrication.

INSTALLATION ACCESSORIES

SAFETY-GRIP BOLT SEATS


Safety-Grip planks can be mechanically fastened to a structural support by
using specially designed Bolt Seats
which seat within the large debossed
holes, below the walking surface. Bolt
Seats have an oblong hole to accommodate a 3/8" bolt, and are available in:
11 ga., G90 Galvanized (H12264)
.125" Aluminum (H12264A)
316 Stainless (H12264S)

DIAMOND-GRIP BOLT SEATS


Diamond-Grip planks can be mechanically fastened to a structural support by
using specially designed Bolt Seats
which seat in between the raised diamonds below the walking surface. Bolt
Seats have a round hole to accommodate a 3/8" bolt, and are available in:
12 ga., G90 Galvanized (H12262)
.125" Aluminum (H12262A)
Stainless (H12262S) by special
request only.
Optional square hole in bolt seat to
accommodate 5/16" carriage bolt available by special request
(H12262SQ)

"J" CLIP ASSEMBLIES


MID-SUPPORT CLIP ASSEMBLY
Between structural supports it may be necessary to tie
planks together to minimize relative deflection. This is
accomplished by using a Mid-Support Clip which draws the
planks side channels together by applying pressure between
the bolts and the clip edge (clip no. MSCL).

In order to alleviate the necessity of drilling a hole through a structural member, a Bolt Seat and "J" Clip assembly can be used. The friction connection
is accomplished by wedging the grating between the Bolt Seat and structural
support, by applying pressure to the underside of the flange of the supporting steel (clip no. H12296). Not recommended in areas subject to
vibration.

SLIP RESISTANCE VALUES
The following anti-slip values were
determined by Independent laboratory tests in accordance with standards established in federal specification RR-G1602A. These are the
average values as indicated for five
shoe sole materials: leather, boot
rubber, shoe rubber, neolite and
hypolon. The materials were tested in three directions of movement,
longitudinal, transverse and diagonal. The chart values denote in
pounds the force necessary to move a load of 175 pounds across
one inch of grating at a constant rate of 2 inches per minute. Listed
below, AMICO-ISG Safety Grating exceeded the minimum federal
specification from 10% to 180%.

STRONG, DURABLE.
A 4 ft. length of AMICO-ISG
Safety Grating was tested dynamically for metal fatigue and durability.
One end was securely anchored
while the other end was weighted
with a 75 lb load. Then the free,
weighted end was vibrated 30,000
times! The resultno fatigue or structural failure was evident.
(AAR.) Railway Approved.

The Load and Deflection Data provided in these tables are intended for
guidance only, to help you determine the proper grating size for your
application. The use of different resin systems and top surface options
can produce variations up to 15% in these values. Because the product
will be used in environments and under operating conditions that are
not within our control, we cannot guarantee the performance of the
grating.
FRP products have low modulus of elasticity but high tensile strength,
therefore loads are generally limited to the allowable deflection determined by the end user. The following data are based on tests utilizing
panels supported on two sides only. Additional stiffness can be
achieved by using cross supports (For further information contact
AMICO-Seasafe for Tech Support Bulletin #1).

Fiberglass Compression-Molded Grating


KORDEK
THE ADVANTAGES OF COMPRESSION MOLDING VS. OPEN MOLDED
GRATING
KORDEK compression-molded Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) gratings offer the best
available combination of strength,durability and ease of installation. The compression-molded
grating system, originated in 1971 by International Grating, Inc., is the only system of its kind
in the world.

KORDEK vs.

FLEXURAL STRENGTH
ASTM D-790
72F
125F
150F
200F

The patented matched-die process exerts over 600-tons of heated force uniformly throughout
the entire glass and resin bonding operation. The hydraulic pressure of compression-molding
forces glass deep into the resin, creating an extra dense and less porous grating than with
open molded grating. The resulting high density KORDEK grating panels provide higher flexural and impact strength and better chemical and UV resistance than any other molded FRP grating. The molded raised studs on the surface of each panel (which are not available on open
molded grating), provide the additional advantage of a non-skid surface.
The strength of KORDEK results from the unique way the continuous strands of reinforcing
glass are woven throughout the grating. The power molding process of KORDEK employs
twice as much reinforcing glass as is found in open molded FRP gratings. As a result,
KORDEK gratings are up to twice as strong as open-molded gratings, and can be verified by
comparing load/deflection data. Greater strength in less thickness allows for fewer support
members for given deflection, which reduces material cost and translates to savings for our
customers.

Compression molding makes KORDEK a stronger more durable grating with an extra measure
of corrosion and UV resistance that surpasses open molded gratings under typical grating
installations.

KORDEK SQUARE-MESH GRATING


KORDEK compression-molded 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square mesh, grating offers
maximum design and installation versatility because bearing bars span in both
directions. KORDEK square-mesh can be cut and installed in almost any configuration.

KORDEK RECTANGULAR-MESH GRATING


KORDEK compression molded 1" x 6" rectangular-mesh grating offers the
highest carrying capacity when panels span the lengthwise (108") direction
The panel size matches most steel grating, to simplify replacing existing steel
grating.

Fiberglass Compression-Molded Grating


KORDEK-IITM
ECONOMICAL, STRONGER AND MORE DURABLE
THAN OPEN-MOLDED GRATING
For almost 30 years, KORDEK compression-molded Fiberglass
Reinforced Plastic (FRP) grating has offered one of the worlds best

Fiberglass Pultruded Grating


GATOR-DECK
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Pultrusion is a continuous molding process in which glass roving, glass matting, and a synthetic surface veil are literally pulled simultaneously
through a flame-retardant polyester or vinylester resin bath. Desired geometric shapes are formed and solidified as they are pulled through a heated
steel die. AMICO-Seasafes Gator-Deck pultruded grating provides the ultimate combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and structural integrity
as a result of the automated pultrusion process.
Standard Resins
Meet ASTM E-84 Class 1 flame rating, and include UV inhibitors for applications involving continuous exposure to the sun. Choose from the following
standard resin systems. Call us about creating special resins for unique environments, such as low smoke, low toxicity, or extra low flame applications.
IFR Made with a premium-grade isophthalic polyester flame-retardant resin system. Standard colors are yellow and gray for pultruded grating.
WT grating and one inch I-bar gratings are also available in white.
VFR Made with a premium-grade vinylester flame-retardant resin system for added protection against corrosion. Standard colors are yellow and
gray for pultruded grating.
Special resins Please call us to develop resin systems for your application.

SURFACE VEIL
CONTINUOUS GLASS MAT
Wraps the bearing bar for transverse
strength and increased impact
resistance.

CORROSION RESISTANCE

CONTINUOUS GLASS
ROVING

The ability of fiberglass to guard against


deterioration from industrial chemicals and
environmental factors makes it a logical and costeffective alternative to carbon steel, aluminum,
wood, or other conventional materials.

Multiple strands of glass fiber


for greater longitudinal strength
and resistance to the stresses
of tension, compression and
bending.

LOW MAINTENANCE
Virtually eliminates maintenance costs since painting is not required,
and UV inhibitors protect against degradation from the sun.

98

Provides a resin-rich surface to increase


corrosion resistance in harsh chemical
environments, as well as a barrier against
continuous ultraviolet exposure.

FIRE RETARDANCE
All standard resin formulations are available
with flame spread less than 25
specifications and the self-extinguishing
characteristics of ASTM D-635.

Fiberglass Pultruded Grating


GATOR-DECK
LOW INSTALLATION COSTS
Weighing considerably less than conventional metal gratings, fiberglass grating is
easier and less expensive to transport, install, and remove. Only simple hand tools
are required for installation and removal, eliminating the need for costly equipment
and labor costs associated with heavy lifting, cutting, and welding.

RELIABILITY
You can count on Gator-Decks superior ability to fight the elements with its
durable lightweight construction and quality.

SLIP-RESISTANT SURFACE
A coarse epoxy grit is bonded to the walking surfaces of all
Gator-Deck pultruded grating and Gator-Deck stair treads
for improved traction, especially in high-traffic areas.

TWO-PART MECHANICAL LOCKING


CROSS-ROD
A continuous pultruded grooved rod interlocked with
spacer bar provide a mechanical lock at each bearing
bar. This interlocking design increases the support and
stability of Gator-Deck under extreme loads.

SELF-DRAINING
Strategically angled lower I-bars
allow for easy fluid runoff which
aids self-cleaning.

PATENTED FLUSH-TOP CROSS-ROD


AND BEARING BAR
Topped by a standard epoxy grit slip-resistant
surface, this system mechanically locks cross
rods and bearing bars together, increasing
unidirectional strength and enabling easy
fabrication.

SUPERIOR STRENGTH
The high glass-to-resin ratio of fiberglass grating provides superior strength and
load-bearing characteristics. With structural integrity protected by its unique
corrosion resistance capabilities, fiberglass grating lasts longer than traditional
materials.

NON-CONDUCTIVITY
AMICO-Seasafes glass and resin formulations are non-sparking and create a
safety barrier for personnel in electrical applications, including electrical work
platforms and fencing around high-voltage equipment. In addition, its non-magnetic
properties make it transparent to electromagnetic waves in applications involving
radio, television, and microwave installations.

LOAD IN POUNDS, DEFLECTION IN INCHES

Load and deflection data were derived from lab tests conducted by AMICO-Seasafe. Values tabled are for design selection and are approximate.
AMICO-Seasafe recommends selecting gratings based on deflection of .25 or less. This deflection may be exceeded at the discretion of the designer.
Deflections of .25-inch or less will give excellent pedestrian comfort. Deflections of .375-inch or less will give satisfactory pedestrian comfort. Loads for
short spans in the .250 and .375 deflection columns have been omitted to allow for shear properties.

Load and deflection data were derived from lab tests conducted by AMICO-Seasafe. Values tabled are for design selection and are approximate.
AMICO-Seasafe recommends selecting gratings based on deflection of .25 or less. This deflection may be exceeded at the discretion of the designer.
Deflections of .25-inch or less will give excellent pedestrian comfort. Deflections of .375-inch or less will give satisfactory pedestrian comfort. Loads for
short spans in the .250 and .375 deflection columns have been omitted to allow for shear properties.

GatorGrate Stair Treads

GatorGrate Stair Treads are versatile, reliable and stronger than competitors stair treads.
They carry more load, because tread-for-tread, GatorGrate Stair Treads have more bearing bars
than other molded stair treads.
In a comparison test of AMICO-Seasafes 9"x 36" tread versus a competitive 9 3/8" x
36 1/2" molded tread, AMICO-Seasafes panel exhibited 15-20% added stiffness.
Seasafes stair tread panels are 1 1/2" thick and have the load-carrying bearing
bars on 1 1/4"centers compared to 1 1/2"centers for competitive treads.
Rugged performance due to its monolithic construction with the
beefy, integral bull nosing (1 3/4"wide x 3/8" thick), the portion of the
tread that gets most wear is reinforced.
Outstanding corrosion resistance resulting from its one-piece,
molded construction.

CUT YOUR OWN STAIR TREADS FROM GATORGRATE STAIR TREAD PANELS
Ease of cutting the panel design incorporates cutting slots
every six inches so treads can be cut inexpensively, quickly
and accurately, resulting in banded treads on both ends.
Economy the 25 5/8" X 144" panel size offers numerous
combinations to maximize the number of treads (less wastage
= less cost).
