Your solution for wet or slippery environments

OnGrip® Traction Safety

Ohio Gratings, Inc. Logo

Using thermal metal spray technology, we coat metal surfaces with high-traction OnGrip® surface treatment to boost safety and reduce fall risks.

OnGrip® is our metal spray technology that provides a high-traction covering on base metal grating or plate surfaces. This surface treatment exceeds ANSI-NFSI standards for a high dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF)—even in slippery environmentsand can be applied to carbon steel, stainless steel or aluminum. In slippery, wet or oily conditions, OnGrip® metal spray coating provides a durable, high-traction surface and long service life while meeting or exceeding ADA requirements.

Big River


Memphis, TN


The Big River Crossing is the country's longest active bridge for rail, bicycles and pedestrians. This mile-long engineering feat provides residents new opportunities for recreation and fitness with a stunning view. In partnership with the City of Memphis, we provided a combined 124,000 square feet of materials to construct the walkway deck, fence and handrails to make this Mississippi river crossing a reality.

Phase 2

High Line Park

New York City, NY


In order to create a more connected, healthy community, we partnered with non-profits in New York City to enhance High Line Park—Manhattan’s elevated rail line-turned greenway. In order to fulfill the vision for this unique elevated park, our team crafted heavy-duty stainless steel grating that created a “see-through” look while remaining ADA Compliant and high-heel friendly. By making slight alterations to our products, we created a grating strong enough to support maintenance vehicles while achieving 68% transparency underfoot to allow park visitors to view plants and park features below.
