  Expanded Metal Gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics

       

The industrial expanded metal gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics are intelligently designed and manufactured. These gratings save you money and may also increase your margins.

The expanded metal gratings are manufactured continuously from sheet or plate and contain no joints or welds, leaving a smooth look. Expanded metal gratings emerge from the expanding process as a single piece of material and are structurally stronger than the original material from which they are made.

There are many applications where metal bar gratings are essential due to extreme loads. These applications require a slower - and often more costly - installation. If your application calls for light to moderate loading, why pay those higher installation costs? Expanded metal gratings are specifically and economically designed for light to moderate load bearing applications. The expanding process is more efficient than the production of bar gratings, and you pay only for the load bearing properties you need.

Simply put, expanded metal gratings provides a cost-effective and strong weight-to-load product for most load bearing applications.

The expanded metal gratings product line includes:


  Expanded Metal Projection Mesh Safety Gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics

The projection mesh expanded metal safety gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics are intelligently manufactured with tooth-like projections on the upper surface of the design.

Projection mesh expanded metal safety gratings - like our regular gratings - are manufactured continuously from sheet or plate and contain no joints or welds. Projection mesh expanded metal safety gratings are formed into a single piece of material and are structurally stronger than the original material from which they are made.

Projection mesh expanded metal safety gratings save you money and may also increase your margins. There are many applications where serrated metal bar gratings are essential due to extreme loads. These applications require a slower and often more costly installation. If your application calls for light to moderate loading on 6 to 24 spans, why pay those higher installation costs? Projection mesh expanded metal gratings are specifically and economically designed for light to moderate load bearing applications. The expanding process is more efficient than the production of serrated bar gratings, and you pay only for the load bearing properties you need.

  Expanded Metal Walkway Gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics

The expanded metal walkway gratings of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics are intelligently designed and manufactured. Expanded metal walkway gratings - like our other expanded metal gratings - are manufactured continuously from sheet or plate and contain no joints or welds. Expanded metal walkway gratings are produced into a single piece of material and are structurally stronger than the original material from which they are made. Walkway gratings are used in several industries, including:

  • Steel Mills
  • Utility Companies
  • Gas Companies
  • Oil Refineries
  • Electric Companies
  • Food Processing Plants
  • Water Treatment Facilities

Would you like to save money and also possibly increase your margins? Consider expanded metal walkway gratings rather than metal bar gratings. There are many applications where metal bar gratings are essential due to extreme loads, however, these applications require a slower and often more costly installation. If your application calls for light to moderate loading, why pay those higher installation costs? Expanded metal walkway gratings are specifically and economically designed for light to moderate load bearing applications. The expanding process is more efficient than the production of bar gratings, and you pay only for the load bearing properties you need.

  Expanded Metal Stair Treads of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics

The industrial expanded metal stair treads of Niles Expanded Metals & Plastics are constructed of expanded metal mesh. Stair treads are formed as a single piece of material through the expanding process and emerge stronger than the original material from which they are made.

Expanded metal stair treads are designed specifically for light to moderate load bearing applications, including:

  • Industrial Stairways
  • School Stairways
  • Commercial Stairways
  • Dock Stairways
  • Ship Stairways
  • Water Treatment Facility Stairways
  • Industrial Platforms
  • Fire Engine and Industrial Truck Running Boards

What is the best material for your stair treads application? Consider this: the expanding process used in the production of expanded metal stair treads makes the product more efficient than metal bar gratings. For example, if your application calls for light to moderate loading, then expanded metal stair treads are a match. Purchasing metal bar gratings which is primarily desired for extreme loads would be less efficient, because you would be paying for higher material costs and weight specifications you are not using.
