How to Select a Grating Solution

FORGE-WELD BAR GRATING

Forge-weld bar grating is a process in which the bearing bars and cross rods are permanently forged together by heat and pressure into a single unit construction, resulting in greater strength per pound than mechanically assembled methods. The twisted cross rods provide a non-slip walking surface.

Grating Solutions

Vulcraft offers a wide variety of steel bar grating including standard, heavy duty and customized shapes and sizes with various finishes making our products suitable for all kinds of applications. Stock products can be supplied quickly from strategically located sales and warehouse facilities. Also, custom grating jobs can be manufactured to very particular requirements by our personnel in either Imperial or Metric measurements.

Our grating products are routinely used in the mining, petroleum, petrochemical, pulp & paper, water treatment, chemical, and power generation industries. They also are used extensively in the transportation industry, including railroad, airport and transport truck, and in the military.
