Typically grating for the public transportation and utilities market are located in high pedestrian and vehicular traffic areas in busy metropolitan cities. Many states across the country have begun to implement new building codes which require grating to meet both ADA and AASHTO standards. These new standards are a result of past failures as often times emergency and other types of vehicular traffic end up on sidewalks where the grating was rated for non-vehicular traffic. OGI offers several options with our Wheels n’ Heels® grating to satisfy these new standards.


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.
