Bar Grating

Direct Metals® supplies bar grating products that can be used for a variety of applications. Bar grating is an ideal choice for projects ranging from trenches and stair treads to decking and steel flooring. Used as metal grates, bar grating covers open areas in flooring that require light, liquid, air, heat, and sound to pass between flooring levels.

Common Bar Grating Applications:

  • Bridge Flooring
  • Trench Covers
  • Walkways
  • Ramps
  • Platforms
  • Catwalks
  • Mezzanine Floors

Product versatility and strength is why many industrial companies use our bar grating as floor grating.
