Steel Flooring

Graepels Metal flooring is an advantageous choice for any project

  • Safety & Slip Resistance: Graepels metal flooring offers improved underfoot safety, in addition to a comfortable walking surface. It is an ideal choice for walkways and platforms, stairways, ladder rungs, and steps.  It also offers increased slip-resistance and safety through its upward embossment.
  • Ease of Installation: Our perforated flooring panels are manufactured with a side perforation on the long side of its beveled edge, which facilitates the mountings of the metal ratings. However, gratings with unperforated edges on one or both sides are also available by special request.
  • Increased Choice: Graepels metal flooring is available in more than twenty types. Many types are also available in safety steps and ladders rungs. A range of materials are also available including steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
  • Aesthetic Value: Increasingly, more architects have discovered the aesthetic attributes and structures of perforated metal flooring and walkways, for example, architects commonly use Graepels metal flooring as ceiling lining and facade cladding. Our product range can also be used as enclosures and covers for machines and installations.
  • Quality: Our metal gratings have a low dead weight and offer the highest load capacities. Increasingly, this gives our flooring an advantage over open mesh flooring in steel construction, as less substructure is required due to the load capacity in longitudinal direction.
