How To OrderAdvantagesHeavy-Duty Grip Strut Safety Grating planks, walkways and stair treads are stocked at local Grip Strut Safety Grating distributors in allmajor market areas. For the finest in Safety Grating and Stair Treads, contact Cooper B-Line or look for your local Grip Strut distributoron the internet at www.cooperbline.com. You will get skilled consulting service on your specific requirements.All standard products are coded with a catalog number which should be used in ordering. For identification and ordering information onspecial products, consult your Grip Strut Safety Grating distributor or Cooper B-Line.Catalog number codePlank and walkway catalog numbersdenote product configuration as follows:Steel —Standard material is mill-galvanized per ASTM A525. For plain, unpainted steel, “B” follows the five-digit catalog numbercoded below.SteelGrating: H - Heavy-DutyHT - Heavy-Duty Stair TreadSide channel height (decimal inches x 10; 21/2 inch - 25)H - 3 25 10 - WProduct; -W Walkway; (blank) Plank, Stair TreadMetal thickness (gauge size, ASG)Width ( number of diamonds)Examples: Catalog Number H-82010 denotes a mill-galvanized, 10 gauge steel plank of 8-diamond (36”) width and 2” high side channels;Catalog Number H-65009-WB denotes a plain, unpainted, 9 gauge steel walkway of 6-diamond (30”) width and 5” high side channels.Aluminum (Special Order) —Standard material is 5052-H32 alloy/temper, mill finish. Catalog number is identical in coding to the catalog number for steel, asdescribed above, but followed by “A” to denote aluminum; also, aluminum thickness is given in inch-thickness.AluminumGrating: H - Heavy-DutyHT - Heavy-Duty Stair TreadEvery year, falls cost industry millions of dollars in lost time/production. The safer walking-working surfaces of Heavy-DutyGrip Strut Grating products reduce accidents, and in doing so,frequently cut insurance costs. The secret is in the serratedsurface and open design. The open diamond pattern allowsfluids, mud, chips, ice and snow to fall through. The serratedsurface provides high friction for maximum slip protection inall directions, and under practically all conditions. The resilienceof Grip Strut Grating cushions the impact of walking, lesseningworker fatigue and increasing efficiency.Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Safety Grating products offer theadvantage of regular Grip Strut Safety Grating (detailed inCatalog GSSGST-09), but are designed for applications ofgreater load and/or longer span. Basic design is the same, butdiamond openings are larger and metal is thicker. Heavy-DutyGrating products are available in many of the sameconfigurations, materials and finishes as regular Grip StrutSafety Grating. Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Grating products include:planks, walkways and stair treads; for specification see page 24.For specifications and information on regular Grip Strut SafetyGratings, see Grip Strut Safety Gratings & Stair Treads catalogGSSGST-09, available from your distributor or Cooper B-Line.combined with numerous special-order items to meet almostany application requirement. Special sizes and fabricatingservices are available for unusual requirements. Heavy-DutyGrip Strut Grating products may be painted, hot-dip galvanizedafter fabrication, anodized, plated, plastic-coated or speciallyfinished in other ways to fit service requirements. Finishcoatings are economically applied since all surfaces areaccessible to brush or spray.Compliance with regulatory codes / standardsWherever maximum safety underfoot is critical, Grip StrutGrating is ideal, offering slip resistance exceeding FederalSpecification RR-G-1602A requirements. Heavy-Duty Grip StrutWalkways meet OSHA toeboard requirements for elevatedstructures with standard upturned, 5 inch high integral sidechannels.Low life-cycle costMaterial cost is low, erection cost nominal. Long-lasting,corrosion-resisting finishes provide long service life to all GripStrut Gratings: steel or aluminum. Brawny but lightweight,these planks, walkways and stair treads permit substantialreduction in supporting structural materials.Self-cleaning open design is virtually maintenance-free.High load capacity, long lifeHigh strength-to-weight performance is achieved throughsection depth and integral side-channel design. Bridged strutsform a rigid, strong plank surface that carries large loads withminimum deflection. There are no rivets, fabricated joints orpressure joints to loosen or break.Fast, simple InstallationGrip Strut Grating is light and simply installed. Often, regularmaintenance personnel can do the job. Sections are easilyfield-cut, at virtually any angle, and field-adapted; connectionsare rapidly made with bolts, clamps or welding. Disassembly,when needed, can be just as rapid.Safety at all levelsHeavy-Duty Grip Strut Grating’s serrated surfaces grip solessecurely in all directions. These non-slip sheared edges areideal for both indoor and outdoor locations — wherever mud,ice, snow, oil and detergents can create hazardous walkingconditions.Tested performanceStatistics show falls as the second highest cause of lost-timeinjuries in industry. Yet tests prove that falls can be reduced bythe safe surface of Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Safety Grating,Planks, Walkways and Stair Treads. And fewer accidents meanlower workmen’s compensation insurance costs, to save thecost of Grip Strut Grating many times over. Independentlaboratory tests prove that Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Gratingexceeds Federal Specification RR-G-1602A requirements forslip resistance. Five shoe soles were tested, in longitudinal,transverse and diagonal directions; under five conditions: dry,greasy, muddy, soapy and icy. Heavy-Duty Grip Strut SafetyGrating tested 32 to 230% more slip-resistant than othergratings (depending upon the condition).Minimal maintenanceOpenings allow fluids, chips, stones and mud to quickly dropthrough. Ice easily shears off under normal foot pressure. Opendesign is easily cleaned with a brush, liquid or air spray.Application versatilityA variety of standard plank widths and channel heights can beSide channel height (decimal inches x 10; 2 inch - 20)1501401301201101009080706050Material; A AluminumMetal thickness (gauge size, ASG) Product; -W Walkway; (blank) Plank, Stair TreadProduct; -W Walkway; (blank) Plank, Stair TreadWidth ( number of diamonds)Example: Catalog Number H-230-125A denotes a 5052 alloy, mill finish, aluminum plank of 0.125 inch material thickness,2-diamond (91/4”) width and 3” high side channels.ABDryStair Tread catalog numbers —Use the above coding preceded by “HT” to denote stair tread.Example: Catalog Number HT-22010-B denotes a stair tread of plain, unpainted, 10 gauge steel, 2-diamond (91/4”) width and2” high deep side channels.26ABMudABIceABGreaseABPounds of ForceH - 2 20 W - 125 AAFederal Specificationfor SteelB10 GaugeSteel Heavy-DutyGrip Strut GratingSoap(1) Value of force required to move 1 175 lb. load a distance of one inch across the grating surface of two Heavy-Duty Grip Strut serrated stylegratings(B & C) compared with the respective Federal Specification RR-G-1602A standard (A).

General Load InformationSpecificationsHeavy-Duty Grip StrutWalkways, Planks and Stair TreadsGeneral Load Informationgrating width cause concentrated loads to be distributedsomewhat differently into siderails.Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Grating Walkways and Planks areavailable in three thicknesses of steel, one of aluminum:walkways have one standard siderail height, planks have four.In each category, walkways come in three widths, planks in five.Begin sizing, for maximum economy, with widest practicalgrating for the job (shallowest siderails and thinnest gauge); ifthis does not meet required load capacity, first consider deepersiderails, then heavier gauge, and finally narrower grating width,if necessary.Siderail strength usually controls, but with shorter spans,deeper siderails, and/or wider grating surfaces, flexuralstrength of individual struts may control. In sizingwalkways/planks with strength as a design criterion, be sureto check Heavy-Duty Grip Strut Grating for both: (1) strengthof walkways/plank siderails, (2) strength of individual struts ingrating surface. With deflection as a design criterion, loadsmay be limited by either: strength of individual surface struts,or total deflection of one siderail at midspan plus a surfacestrut at midwidth of walkway/plank (sum of siderail deflectionplus strut deflection).Flexural load tables have been calculated according to designload limiting criteria, and if not illustrated in this catalog theycan be obtained from Cooper B-Line technical services.All load tables show maximum loads, based upon actual loadtests performed at the Pinckneyville (IL) plant, and determinedin accordance with AISI “Specification for the Design of ColdFormed Steel Structural Members”, 1980 Edition, usingminimum yield strength of 33 ksi for steel, 23 ksi for aluminum.Loads are designated:“Strut Load Tables” show flexural strength and deflection ofindividual grating surface struts relative to siderails. Sincethese are maximum values in the elastic range, lesserloads/deflections can be proportioned from them.Design load assumptions differ according to load type: (1)uniform, (2) concentrated (see Figures 1, 2 and 3 below forexplanation of load application). Concentrated load capacitiesgenerally vary with span, siderail height and material thickness,irrespective of grating width, although large differences in2.3 AccessoriesHeavy-Duty Grip Strut Hold-Down Clip, stainless steel, Catalog Number H-BC-10.
