Metal profile gratings are C-profiles canted from metal sheet cuts with structured surface. Metal profile gratings offer highest load capacities at a low dead weight. This gives them significant advantages over open mesh flooring in steel construction, because less substructure is required due to the load capacity in longitudinal direction. Metal profile gratings are available in materials such as steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
Properly thought-out joining elements facilitate mounting between the gratings and to the substructure.
Metal profile gratings primarily provide underfoot safety. They are ideal as coverings for walkways and platforms, for stairways, ladder rungs and steps. Architects are increasingly discovering the aesthetic charms of the perforations and their graphical structures. They use metal profile gratings as ceiling lining and facade cladding because of their metallic surface, permeability to air and light as well as their durability. Metal profile gratings can also be used as enclosures and covers for machines and installations.
In order to make it easier to select the appropriate perforation for the intended purpose, we have renamed some of our perforations. The previous names are given in brackets on the corresponding sub-pages. We distinguish perforations for 3 fields of application:
We have grouped 6 perforations together which are especially suitable for – indoor and outdoor – use in public areas. The group includes 3 closed and 3 open perforations. The selection criterion is the hole size with a maximum diameter of 8 mm which is accessible also with high heel shoes.
These gratings can also be used in the industrial sector were smaller hole sizes and consequently a smaller open area are required.
