The contractor provided specific drawings of the pieces needed for the packer platform line. 19W4 steel grating coated with the Grade 2 steel surface was chosen for the platform. The pieces were cut-to-size based on the drawings and were able to be easily installed in the field. Stair treads formed from steel plate were also utilized for the packer platform line. The treads were cut based on the specifications listed on each drawing, with two ½” diameter through holes that would be utilized during installation. The stair treads and grating were all galvanized after the slip resistant surface was applied. The galvanizing process allows for the steel surface to be protected against rust and corrosion.
The 19W4 spacing of the grating allows for liquid and other debris to fall through below. The SlipNOT® non slip coating created a completely 100% slip resistant surface in all directions, providing safety and security for anyone working on the platform
