Industrial application of flooring products Automatic translate
When working on projects for industrial enterprises, designers take into account the need for special structures for servicing bulky equipment or hard-to-reach areas due to the specifics of production. These are service platforms where personnel can move along mechanisms, stairs that can be used to climb or descend to another level, transitions from one place to another.
Such platforms and stairs are made of grating. First, a steel frame is made, set in place, then covered with a grating . The material for the flooring can be steel, galvanized steel, fiberglass.
Benefits of grating
The choice of flooring material is made based on:
- from the destination of the site;
- load values;
- aggressiveness of the environment;
- operational features;
- economic factor.
The advantages of different materials for assembling service structures from them in industry are discussed below.
Metal grating is the most suitable material for the manufacture of service platforms and stairs to them. The choice of metal flooring is determined by such characteristics as:
- high strength;
- ease of installation;
- fastening reliability.
Metal decking is great for organizing outdoor and indoor areas. The honeycomb structure contributes to excellent adhesion of the platform surface to the shoes, does not retain dust, dirt, water, and perfectly resists low temperatures.
Galvanized steel deck has all the advantages of steel deck and is more resistant to corrosion.
Fiberglass flooring as a service platform is simply necessary in the presence of aggressive substances or high humidity in the environment. This can be production using acids, alkalis, hot water. In such conditions, metal structures are quickly destroyed, therefore, it is more expedient to use fiberglass flooring and stairs.
- is highly resistant to chemicals and does not corrode;
- withstands a wide range of temperatures (from - 100 to +180 ° С);
- excellent dielectric;
- does not spark;
- much lighter than steel structures with the same strength;
- resistant to UV radiation;
- does not slip;
- can last 30 - 40 years.
Thanks to these qualities, fiberglass is in demand in the chemical industry, at enterprises using high-precision electronics and others.
Regardless of the material of the sites, the fences for them are made of metal. They are easy to install, provide reliable movement on stairs and platforms, and are perfectly combined with any floor covering. Long service life and ease of use determine the use of metal fences.
The use of gratings for the arrangement of service platforms is necessary for the organization of the efficient operation of the equipment, therefore they are part of the technological process.
