Carbon Steel

Strong, Capable & Versatile

When you need strong, reliable metal you can depend on, carbon steel delivers. As the most frequently used material in the metal bar grating industry, carbon steel can withstand significant force without warping, buckling or bending.

We offer two varieties:

  • Strong Series (heavy-duty, highest load-bearing)
  • Standard Series (light-duty, lower load-bearing)

New York City, NY


When Columbia University needed to replace grating along the college walk on campus, we stepped in to replace their light-duty steel welded grating with our ADA-compliant Wheels n’ Heels® Metro® grating—an aesthetically pleasing grate that is high-heel friendly and designed to withstand AASHTO H20 loading.

Consolidated Edison

Electric Vault Gratings

New York City, NY


New York City’s Times Square is one of the busiest places on earth. And when Con-Edison needed a grating solution there was no shortage of challenges. We needed a grating product that gave line crews easy access to underground power lines while providing proper transformer ventilation and met AASHTO H20 requirements for truck loads and ADA requirements for pedestrians. Our team worked diligently to find a reliable solution that addressed each challenge ultimately delivering our Wheels n’ Heels® Metro® with ALGRIP® surface treatment as an exceptional long-term solution.
