Press-Locked Stainless Steel Gratings

by Sunj Grating Limited

A press-locked stainless grating is made up of cross bars and bearing bars.

Press-Locked Stainless Steel Gratings
A press-locked stainless grating consists of bearing bars and cross bars. A grating’s bearing bar is its main load-bearing component. Various thicknesses and depths are available. A variety of thicknesses are available for the crossbar, which is the secondary load-bearing component of the grating. In order to join the two types of bars, a high-pressure process is used. The result is a joint that is rigid and strong.

The Process Flow for Stainless Steel Gratings
You should ensure that the gratings are of the highest quality. There are a few crucial steps in the manufacturing process. The gratings will be defect-free and have a long lifespan if these steps are followed. The following is an outline of the process flow for manufacturing gratings:

Step 1: Material And Construction:

Choosing the right material for the gratings is the first step. The GI-RO technique offers different constructions of grating, each with its own advantages. The materials are selected after deciding which structure to use. Stainless steel and aluminum are the most common materials used.

Step 2:Tensioning:

A tight, even surface is then created by tensioning the material. It helps if the surface is not completely flat but slightly curved. It is crucial to avoid distortions in the wavefront and ensure that the grating is flat. A jig or a template is used to tension stainless steel.

Step 3: Stainless Steel Gratings In All Sizes:

GI-RO technique produces stainless steel gratings of all sizes. Using a water jet cutter, cut the gratings to size with the highest quality materials. Thus, the corners are perfectly 90 degrees and the edges are clean and burr-free.

Step 4:Surface Of The Gratings:

The surface of the gratings can be acid cleaned, brushed, or blasted to suit the customer’s requirements. Stainless steel gratings are usually acid-cleaned to give them a bright, shiny finish. If a different surface finish is desired, the gratings can be blasted or brushed.

Step 5: Crossbar Welds:

The gratings are then welded to the crossbars. By using a TIG welder, it is possible to create very small and precise welds. The welder has a special Argon gas protection, which prevents the formation of oxides on the weld.

Step 6:Fixing Of The Gratings:

After the gratings are welded to the crossbars, they need to be fixed. To fix the gratings, they are welded or screwed to the supporting structure. In this way, the gratings are securely fastened and cannot be removed without damaging them.

Step 7:End Products:

The gratings are now ready to be used! They can deliver in either sheets or ready-to-install panels. If the customer needs a specific size or shape, the GI-RO technique can also cut the gratings to order.
