Riveted grating is the oldest style and still a popular choice for
industrial flooring areas. It is still the choice of many engineers
due to its reliability and durability along with its eye appeal.
This grating is composed of straight bearing bars, and bent
connecting bars, which are joined at their contact points by
rivets. Since the connecting bars extend continuously between
bearing bars along the grating spans, they not only serve to join
the bearing bars together, but also contribute to the load carrying
capability and lateral stability of the grating panels. This added
dimension makes riveted grating an ideal choice where high strength
and stiffness are required, or light vehicular rolling loads are
For areas requiring skid resistance due to the presence of moisture
or oily substances, steel riveted grating is available with a
serrated connecting bar. This bar is raised 3/16” above the surface
of the grating and provides a grip fast surface for the soles of
shoes. Riveted grating is also available using stainless steel bar.
