Expanded Catwalk is structurally stronger than Expanded Grating. Typically, you install it with the long way of the diamond running across the shorter span (width). Usually, you will see Catwalk installed in walkways or elevated platforms.
For example, frequent applications include stadiums, event spaces, and billboard platforms. The next time you drive by a billboard, you will likely notice a platform made from Catwalk!
While Expanded Grating can bear weight, the specific amount it can carry depends on factors like material type and gauge. Durable materials that have higher load capabilities, such as stainless and carbon steel, typically feature these gratings. However, the lightweight nature of Aluminum Expanded Grating also allows its utilization as an architectural element for building facades.
