THE SAFEGRID RANGE

Complying with both UK and EU Standards for Ball Proof requirements.

At Lionweld Kennedy we believe it is our duty to educate, inform and support the industries we serve with knowledge on how best to optimise the many uses of steel grated flooring.

Which is why we only recommend 3 variants within our range. These should cover every possible application and comply with both UK and EU Standards for Ball Proof requirements.

These are designed, determined, named, and selected based on the maximum permissible opening between the steel bars. I.e., How large a sphere can pass through the flooring?

The decision of which to use is based on the health and safety factor of how much traffic will pass underneath and how frequently?

The purpose of the requirement is to provide protection from falling objects to people who may be below the grating.

Manufacturing Standards

Steel Grating
The British standard contains 35mm and 20mm ball proof requirements for steel gratings. This means that the traditional 41/100 grating is no longer compliant in many applications. Our Safegrid steel grating has been designed and manufactured to suit the new British standard to offer the optimum compliance and quality product for your project brief. 

LK Utility Grating
To be used for walkways below head height and where people cannot pass underneath. Utility grating is used for access, walkways, shelving and fencing. Non-ball proof and has the widest opening. Take a look at our Data and Downloads for Safegrid for more information.
