Graepel-Lightprofile is a C-shaped, canted metal profile grating. Its surface is characterized by almost vertical bars with serrated edges which allow for an almost unlimited view through the grating. Depending on the grating width, the open area is between 74 and 80 %, thus reaching the highest value of all Graepel perforations. Graepel-Lightprofile offers an extreme drainage effect, excellent slip resistance and displacement as well as a high transverse stiffness. The maximum embossed field is 370 mm.
Graepel-Lightprofile is essential in machine and plant manufacture wherever precipitation or high dirt volumes put underfoot safety at risk. They are used as walking surfaces on crushers and agricultural machines, as coverings capable of being walked on for bunkers and pits with cohesive loose goods such as cereals or ground particles, as walkways in areas with extreme precipitation, e.g. for ski lifts, and wherever it is extremely windy, for instance on crane arms etc. Platforms made of Graepel-Lightprofile in front of driving cabs ensure underfoot safety for maintenance purposes without obstructing visibility to the work area.
As an alternative to open mesh flooring, Graepel-Lightprofile provides wider bearing spans and additional slip resistance with a similar open surface.
