Hinges, Locks & Lift Handles

Since grating is typically used to provide multiple level flooring, quite often, grating hatches are needed to facilitate access from one level to another. Ohio Gratings has years of experience in fabricating grating panels with hinges and lift handles, and with locking devices for security purposes. Numerous typical details have been developed, and are on file for customer use. Since these details are standard, they represent the most cost effective methods of fabrication, both from a labor, and from a material availability point of view.
