     SECTION 05 53 10

     STEEL BAR GRATINGS

    ***** Ametco? Manufacturing Corporation manufacturers several basic construction materials including perforated metal and plastic panels, expanded metal panels, wire cloth, steel and aluminum bar gratings, safety gratings, stair treads, and ladder rungs. Ametco? Manufacturing Corporation also manufactures several types of ornamental metal fencing.

    This guide can be used to specify various welded steel bar gratings and stair treads. These can be used for platforms, stairs, trench covers, and many other applications. Steel bar gratings can be specified as a separate section or as part of another building element. For the later, paragraphs from this guide would need to be inserted into the section specifying the element constructed with steel gratings. *****

    The specifier will need to edit this product specification to reflect the options and applications being used. Most editing can be accomplished by deleting unnecessary requirements. Options are indicated by [ ]. Notes to assist the specifier in selecting options and editing the specification guide are printed in bold and indicated with *****. For final editing, all brackets and notes will need to be deleted from the guide.
