McNICHOLS® Bar Grating Resources

McNICHOLS® Bar Grating brings safety, strength, durability, and character when installed in either industrial or architectural applications. It regularly appears on catwalks, factory floors, platforms, railing infill panels, and as Stair Treads. A series of bearing bars are welded, swage-locked, or press-locked with perpendicular crossbars to form the panels. Bar Grating is a rugged, high-performance, low-maintenance, and slip-resistant product capable of handling pedestrian or vehicular loads. McNICHOLS also has a complete line of Bar Grating Stair Treads and available resources. For information on Bar Grating Stair Treads, please visit our Stair Tread Resources landing page.
