Aluminum grating is an ideal solution for many special grating applications such as: sewage and waste water treatment plants, off-shore drilling rigs, the chemical processing industry, the paper mill industry and marine superstructure applications. Because of its natural attractiveness, aluminum grating is also used in many architectural and commercial applications including sun screens, ceiling tiles, vent grilles, fencing, building facades, fountains, nature and wildlife walkways, and entranceways.
As an alternative to bar grating, aluminum plank is structurally sound and cosmetically attractive.

The surface can be provided unpunched or with a variety of punch patterns for the passage of air, light, heat or moisture. A diagonal pattern is also available which meets the ADA requirements for wheelchair accessibility and high heel foot traffic.
