Scope of Application for Bar Grating Stair Treads

The following outlines the range of applications for bar grating stair treads: load-bearing for stairs, stepping on stairs, treads, load-bearing for channels, machinery maintenance channel stepping, car wash room drainage load-bearing panels, stage load-bearing, grating ceilings, sewer cover plates, factory floor drainage ditch covers, load-bearing panels, power plant construction channels, industrial and mining operation construction channels, etc. With its low cost and simple installation, modern and innovative appearance, it infuses an air of modernization into factories.

Its sturdy pressure-welded mesh structure gives it high load-bearing capacity and lightweight structure for easy lifting. Its attractive appearance, durability, and hot-dip galvanized surface treatment provide excellent corrosion resistance. The surface is glossy and allows for ventilation, light penetration, heat dissipation, explosion resistance, and good anti-slip performance, preventing the accumulation of dirt.

Bar grating stair treads belong to a category of treads, presenting serrated flat steel. Primarily designed for anti-slip purposes, they possess distinct advantages. Manufactured by welding flat steel into a serrated pattern on one side, they offer strong anti-slip abilities beyond the typical characteristics of plain steel grating. They are well-suited for damp and slippery environments, providing high rust resistance. These treads can be hinged as water trench covers and frames, enhancing theft protection and convenience in access.

By using high-strength carbon steel, anti-slip stair treads exhibit exceptional durability and strength, far surpassing cast iron. They are particularly suitable for environments with large spans or heavy loads. Their modern and elegant design features a silver shell, appropriate lines, and a strong contemporary feel, offering cost savings and high cost-effectiveness for operations involving wide spans and heavy loads compared to cast iron, making them more affordable.

Anti-Slip Measures for Steel Stair Treads

Bar grating stair treads can be particularly slippery in wet weather. Implementing safety measures for bar grating stair treads is a crucial concern for every user. So, what measures can be taken to ensure safety performance? Here, the two best methods are introduced. Firstly, in the production of steel gratings, an anti-slip strip is embedded on the outer edge of the steel stair tread, which is no less than 25mm wide, enhancing anti-slip properties. Secondly, the entire steel stair tread is made using serrated flat steel as the raw material.

In order to enhance anti-slip properties, patterned steel plate protective strips are embedded on the bar grating stair treads. For anti-slip purposes, serrated flat steel is used as the raw material for bar grating stair treads.

All the aforementioned bar grating stair treads are manufactured using flat steel as the production material. Bar grating stair treads made from flat steel offer better anti-slip effects than traditional patterned steel plates. Additionally, they are more affordable than steel plates, saving on the cleaning work required during rainy and snowy seasons. Using steel gratings is more economical and practical, representing an upgraded product.

There are several other anti-slip measures for bar grating stair treads, but they are not as effective as the two methods mentioned above and have mostly been phased out. Here they are briefly shared.

  • Cement mortar treads: Currently, some projects embed a threaded steel bar at the corners of cement mortar treads for anti-slip purposes. However, over prolonged use, the ribbed portion of the threaded steel can wear down, leading to a loss of anti-slip functionality.
  • Polished marble or granite slab treads: This type of tread is quite common. However, in some projects, the treads lack any anti-slip measures or only have two grooves cut into them without embedded metal anti-slip strips, rendering them ineffective in preventing slipping.
  • Anti-pollution measures for tread sides and bottoms: The bottom of staircase treads should have drip lines (grooves). These drip lines should be neat and straight, with the inner side higher than the outer side. The width and depth of the drip grooves should not be less than 10mm. At areas where the direction of the staircase changes, the drip lines should be continuous.
  • Water deflector platforms should be set on the side of the staircase well to prevent water from flowing along the sides of the treads and causing pollution. Similarly, at areas where the direction of the staircase changes, the water deflector platforms should be continuous.
  • Installing tread carpets.
  • Plastic anti-slip pads.
