Many fixed bridges spanning over water require an open grid system for improved drainage off the deck. These bridges are typically found in both metropolitan and rural settings. Our heavy duty riveted bridge deck is a good solution because of its long service life, ease of installation and reduced dead load weight on the bridge supports. Engineering and detailing support services are available for these projects.


WH Products:
OGi ADA compliant WH (Wheel n’ Heels®) products are available in carbon or stainless steel. All of these products are available to meet ADA guidelines with our 11-space grating products. With 3/16” thick bearing bars the ADA standard of ½” clear between bars is achieved. For added safety our 7-space grating products go above and beyond offering ¼” clear between bearing bars. The WH products come in two variations, the Wheels n’ Heels® Metro® and Wheels n’ Heels® InVent®. Both can be sized to meet any vehicular loads up to H-20 AASHTO 20-ton vehicular loads.

SG Products:
OGi SG products are available in aluminum (SG, SGF, SGI, SGLi), carbon steel (SGCS). All of these products are available to meet ADA guidelines with our 11-space grating products. With 3/16” thick bearing bars the ADA standard of ½” clear between bars is achieved. For added safety our 7-space grating products go above and beyond offering ¼” clear between bearing bars. The aluminum SGI product comes standard with a ¼” width flange at the top and bottom further reducing the clear opening by 1/16”. Slip resistant surfaces can be applied to enhance the safety of these products.

PressLock Products:
OGi PressLock (PL) products are similar to the DT products. PL products are manufactured from thin gauge carbon steel. The PL product line has a higher degree of flexibility on bar spacing than any other manufacturing method. The PL product can space both cross bars and bearing bars on a 7/16” center-to-center matrix giving you a tremendous amount of flexibility to tailor the specification to your project. PL products are offered in six standard configurations, but can easily be customized to your individual project needs.

Electroforged:
Electroforged (welded) products are the traditional “standard” of bar grating. These products are available in carbon steel as well as stainless steel (304 or 316 alloy) for areas that may be subjected to corrosive materials. Various spacings and bar depths are available allowing for air, light, and drainage. Grating products can be supplied with a galvanized (carbon steel) or passivated (stainless steel) finish to increase the longevity of the product. Slip resistant surfaces can be applied to enhance the safety of the material.

Riveted Products:
Riveted grating products are manufactured from aluminum (AR) or carbon steel (R) and can meet light duty or heavy duty (AASHTO H-20) loading requirements. As the oldest style of bar grating, riveted material continues to be the choice of engineers due to its ruggedness, reliability and durability. Products can be provided with various bar depths to meet any loading or span criteria. Serrated surfaces or slip resistant surfaces are available upon request.
