RETROFIT BAR GRATE DECK OR MEZZANINE PLANK GRATING

THE REWORK SOLUTION FOR BAR OR PLANK MEZZANINE GRATING FLOORS

Do your employees have a hard time rolling dollies or carts over steel grate flooring?

That's because its perforated steel grid surface is designed to enhance traction and reduce slipping. However, this metal grate surface generates vibration as the dollies or carts travel over it, requiring workers to apply additional force to maintain control as they push or pull a wheel-based load. It also makes maneuvering pallet jack loads difficult and creates excessive noise.

The gaps in mezzanine grate flooring present a trip hazard, as well as permit small items to fall through to the level below. The openings also prevent the installation and use of workstations, while the openings and texture in the flooring surface prohibits the use of robotic fleets.

Further, bar grate deck and plank grate flooring materials are rigid and unforgiving, making them less ergonomic and increasing employee fatigue. During biomechanical testing, employees walking over bar or plank grate flooring experienced a more than 10% increase in tibial shock force. This translates into the equivalent of adding 18 pounds to body mass, which can raise the risk of injury.
