Material: Galvanized Steel Bar Grating 21PL7 (Bearing Bars spaced at 1-5/16", Cross Bars spaced at 7/16")
Daimler Chrysler specified PressLock grating in their Mopar Distribution warehouses for a mezzanine floor grating application. The Ohio Gratings pproduct used was PressLock galvanized steel grating 21PL7 with bearing bars 1-3/16" heights x 14 gauge and cross bars of 5/16" high x 5/24" thick. The majority of the panels were fabricated in 48" x 48" and 48" x 65" sizes and included flat bar banding.
The warehouse workers preferred the PressLock grating because of the closer spacing of the bearing and cross bars. This grating is more comfortable to stand and walk on due to its closer spacing. When workers roll carts over this grating while retrieving parts from the shelves, the carts now roll smoothly and do not bounce up and down.
