Galvanized Metal Grating

Introduction of galvanized metal grating

Galvanized metal grating has become a vital material in China’s infrastructure construction. From its initial unfamiliarity to its widespread utilization today, various developments have taken place, requiring some insight into the galvanized metal grating industry. Presently, galvanized metal grating continues to play an immeasurable role in future infrastructure development.

Various types of steel are used to create frameworks for platforms of different heights, such as two meters or four meters. Each platform level is connected by smaller joists, upon which large galvanized metal grating panels are laid. This design allows entire suspended levels to function as production platforms, providing not only walkways for personnel but also facilitating the setup of equipment. Galvanized metal grating is also commonly used in wastewater treatment facilities due to their specific requirements.

In the realm of wastewater treatment, galvanized metal grating is frequently employed. Given the demands of wastewater treatment facilities, the use of galvanized metal grating is essential and unavoidable.

Occasionally, issues arise with ordered galvanized metal grating dimensions, only discovered during installation. In such cases, achieving the appropriate dimensions becomes possible through cutting.

Processing method of galvanized metal grating

There are two key methods for processing and cutting galvanized metal grating: cold cutting and hot cutting. Each method has distinct variations. For cold cutting, options include waterjet cutting, general cutting, or saw cutting. In the case of hot cutting, choices include flame cutting, low-temperature plasma cutting, or high-energy laser steel plate cutting.

Regardless of the cutting method employed, cutting cracks will appear. These cracks can be managed. Skilled workers with experience tend to achieve better results, while novice workers may generate larger cutting cracks. In the case of hot cutting, proper heating before cutting is recommended. The heating time depends on the steel plate’s type and quality. Preheating can significantly reduce cutting cracks.

Low-speed cutting is a common method for processing galvanized metal grating. Pre-purchase preparation is required before cutting. Good heating performance can effectively reduce cutting cracks. Heating temperatures can reach around 100°C. If cutting speed is fast, or the galvanized metal grating is very thin or thick, heating temperatures can be adjusted accordingly. Underwater cutting is a cold cutting method suitable for specific requirements of galvanized metal grating. This method is highly technical and specialized, usually handled by professional companies.

Regardless of the cutting method, precision in size is crucial during customization. Customers are advised to be cautious and attentive to dimensions to prevent errors.

Most used specification of galvanized metal grating

Specifications and models of galvanized metal grating cover plates are determined based on combinations of flat steel specifications, distances between flat steels, and distances between crossbars. Commonly used specifications for steel grating cover plates include G253/30/100, G253/30/50, G303/30/100, G303/30/50, G303/40/50, G303/40/100, G404/30/100, G404/30/50, G404/40/100, G404/40/50, G505/30/100, G505/30/50, G505/40/100, G505/40/50, G505/50/100, G505/50/50, and others.
