Bar grating is a versatile product with many uses in a variety of applications. It can be used for applications such as walkways, platforms, entranceways, drainage decks, stairways, trench grating, marine applications, and more. Bar grating is diverse because of the many styles that are readily available:
Bar grating is also available in a slip resistant by design option, serrated bar grating. Serrated bar grating can provide slip resistance, but also can wear smooth in time. Serrated bar grating can cause the injuries it was meant to prevent because of the uneven walking surface and the uneven wear over time. There are options available to add slip resistance to bar grating.
SlipNOT® Metal Safety Flooring has been proven the most durable and reliable slip resistant option for bar grating because of its guaranteed slip resistance in every direction as well as 100% surface coverage. SlipNOT® is an all-metal slip resistant coating that is applied to smooth bar grating, available on aluminum bar grating, steel bar grating or stainless steel bar grating. While there are many slip resistant bar grating options, ranging from fiberglass grating to patterned safety grating, SlipNOT®’s all metal coating is a permanent solution that will not wear down to a smooth surface or delaminate over time.
