The name of the riveted bar grating comes from the use of high-strength rivets to join the reticulated bar to the bear bar. Mechanical and hydraulically operated riveting tools are used to cold press each rivet separately, which fuses the mesh and bear bars together and forms a solid joint. The riveted bar grating can be made of carbon steel or aluminum.
Riveted Bar Grating Advantages
Riveted strip gratings provide greater load capacity over the same span and depth compared to other types of gratings such as welded or swage-locked. The process of riveting reticulated bar to the bear bar also enhances the grating's ability to withstand buckling and chattering while also eliminating residual stresses that often cause warpage and joint failure. As the oldest form of grating, the riveted product is a rugged and impact resistant solution. Riveted gratings offer excellent impact and fatigue resistance.
In addition, the riveted strip grating provides a smooth or serrated surface, making it ideal for high traffic areas..
Riveted Bar Grating Application
Due to the advantages listed above, the riveted bar grating is the first choice for engineering applications. The riveted bar grating has a smooth or serrated surface that provides the perfect solution for vehicles and wheeled equipment, especially for items that include casters and walkways that require maximum walking comfort. Other uses include almost any type of plane, such as ramps, loading docks, and industrial and commercial floors.
