Slip Resistance – choosing the right top surface
The slip resistance of the flooring and walkway profile is an essential consideration in any project. Standard steel grating comprises plain square edge flat bars. In order to increase slip resistance there are a number of options available for consideration, especially for sloping walkways.
As mandated by AS 1657-2013, the use of 10 x 10mm square bar cleats is required for additional security under foot on walkways with a slope >100. Note: ISO 14122.1 recommends cleats between 10° and 20°.
Serrated grating improves slip resistance (Stainless steel grating and any bars <25mm or >75mm deep will not be serrated.) In addition steel and stainless steel grating can improve its slip resistance by setting the direction of walking over the floor, parallel to the load bars.
Pattern choice is also important; patterns with 100mm cross rod centres (ie Pattern A and C) have better slip resistance than those with crossrods at 50mm centres.
Webforge grating is manufactured in numerous combinations of load bar depth and thickness; load bar and cross rod pitch. The grating is manufactured from a minimum of Grade 250 Mild Steel (or equivalent) designed for high impact, high load applications. EU/G7 manufactured product will meet AS3679.1 2010 requirements.
Webforge offers a comprehensive range of standard grating profiles, as outlined under the Patterns Available and Load Table pages.
Webforge also has the capacity to custom manufacture grating profiles to suit project specific requirements.
