McNICHOLS® Bar Grating can meet almost any load bearing or weight requirement and is the most durable grating for rugged applications. Bar grating is a top choice for strength, safety, and long-term cost. Bar Grating consists of a series of bearing bars welded (or otherwise joined) at various intervals to perpendicular cross bars to form a load-bearing panel. Panels are manufactured by welding, locked by swaging, or press-locked processes. A typical panel configuration has bearing bars that are spaced 1-3 16 inches (center to center) with perpendicular cross bars spaced 4 inches apart (center to center). Other spacings are available to meet your loading and open area requirements. Bar Grating is available in a wide selection of panel sizes; bar sizes and spacings; bar shapes; and material types. The most popular style is Welded Bar Grating. To narrow your selections, please click on an image below that represents a type of grating configuration.

Handrail components are used with support posts that are directly "in line" with horizontal members well suited for use in conventional railings and other pipe structures. For railings and racks that require heavier duty strength, choose the offset design fittings that permit pipe to cross with an absolute minimum of cutting, since the support members are not directly "in line."
