Safegrate is a heavy duty grating / open mesh flooring capable of withstanding vehicle loadings.
Safegrate has 9mm diameter round bar passing through the flooring at 100mm intervals and then spot welded on one side. This provides the grating with greater lateral restraint when subjected to breaking and acceleration motions of the vehicle.
Safegrate heavy duty grating is available in a variety of mesh sizes, bar thickness and depth as detailed in the table below.
|Load Bearing Bar Centres (A)||Transverse Bar Centes (B)||Load Bearing Bar Thickness Available||Load Bearing Bar Depth|
|20, 25, 33, 40mm||100mm||5, 6, 8, 10mm||30 to 100mm|

Safegrate is used where vehicles are likely to pass over the grating such as:
Due to the nature of vehicular loadings and their lateral forces, it is recommended that a positive fixing solution is applied to Safegrate. It is standard practice to weld fixing pads to the grating, allowing it to be positively fixed in to position.
Heavier sections may not require fixing down if placed within a self contained rebate, stopping any lateral movement.
Following the government mandate on BIM level 2 requirements throughout the supply chain for all government funded projects, Lionweld Kennedy have built on our existing processes to become fully BIM level 2 compliant. Our internal processes are aligned with the requirements of PAS1192-2:2013 to ensure full BIM compliance and ensure we are prepared for fully collaborative working practices in line with specific client requirements. Using our primary BIM authoring software Tekla Structures, which is aligned to our in house manufacturing processes we have developed our comprehensive BIM object library available for download.
