OGI Engineered

Take your safety strategy a step ahead with our full suite of precision-engineered traction safety products. 

With slips, trips and falls remaining a top hazard year after year, you want to construct a safe and efficient environment you can depend on for years to come. OGI Engineered products provide reliable solutions to reduce hazards and increase safety. After a widespread need for more traction safety products in the market that meet or exceed ADA requirements for slip-resistance, we now offer a full suite of traction safety solutions available to all. You can use our Grater Access® products in conjunction with our traction surface treatments to achieve unparalleled safety in your facility.


OGI Engineered Products

Our Grater Access® and Wheels n’ Heels® product lines are designed to meet the unique accessibility requirements of the ADA without sacrificing aesthetics or pedestrian comfort. In addition, you can take advantage of our exclusive ALGRIP® and OnGrip® finishes to give your metal grating a longer lifespan while increasing safety and adding aesthetic appeal. 

ALGRIP® is a patented CNC laser process that welds thousands of rugged, custom alloy laser deposits to base metal for slip resistance in all directions. In addition, ALGRIP® traction features meet or exceed OSHA and ADA requirements for slip resistance in wet or dry conditions.

Using thermal metal spray technology, OnGrip® metal-grip surfaces bond with carbon steel, stainless steel, or aluminum surfaces for enhanced traction. Furthermore, OnGrip® meets or exceeds ADA requirements for slip resistance and is commonly used in slippery environments as well as on metal plates, stair treads and metal bar grating.

Make your project pedestrian-friendly and vehicle safe with our family of Grater Access® products. We offer a full suite of grating that conforms to the spacing requirements of the ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities and are offered in both aluminum and steel. In addition, we offer a variety of spacing options so you can have the right open area, water drainage or airflow requirements you need while remaining accessible to pedestrians, wheelchairs, strollers, bicycles or high heels. 

Wheels n’ Heels® is the first grating product to satisfy vehicle loading requirements of AASHTO while also meeting ADA comfort requirements. Aesthetically pleasing and bicycle and high-heel friendly, we offer two types of Wheels n’ Heels® products: Metro® and InVent®. Our Metro® line boasts a greater strength-to-weight ratio and a higher percentage of open area for improved airflow. InVent® offers the same features as Metro® with the added benefit of having the main support bearing bars run perpendicular to top surface bars and hidden underneath for greater design flexibility.

A slip-resistant surface is recommended to meet ADA guidelines.

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.
