Fabrication Categories

Lionweld Kennedy offer a full fabrication service providing cut to length panels with bound edges, or fully shaped panels to suit client drawings in accordance with BS4592:2006 with manufacturing tolerances of +0mm/-5mm.

Standard Panels

Steel grating panels are manufactured in standard sizes, they are then cut down and fabricated to suit client specifications.

The standard sizes for our flooring types are

  • Safegrid - 6000mm x 1000mm (nominal)
  • Safety Grating - 6000mm x 1000mm (nominal)
  • Safelock - 3000mm x 1000mm (nominal)
  • Safetread (diamond pattern) - 3000mm  x 800mm (nominal)

NOTE: Safegrate, Safedeck and Stanweld are manufactured to suit 

Economic Fabrication

Panels can be joined together to increase the width however to produce the grating in the most economical way, Safegrid should be manufactured as standard in 1 metre nominal widths. The most economical way to manufacture the grating is to maintain the standard width whenever possible and finish your walkway with a make up panel.

 

Basic Fabrication Categories

Cutting & Binding

Standard Panels are fabricated into smaller pieces with no cut-outs or panel notching. Panel ends are bound using binding bars of the same depth as the bearing bars. Kick flat / Toe Plate can be used in replace of binding bars at an additional cost. Cutting and binding is the most cost effective fabrication method.

 

 

Simple Shaping Layouts

 

Simple layouts would generally be from standard width panels but can be areas with non-standard widths to suit applications. Within these panels a nominal amount of shaping and cut-outs could exist. Open ends and shaping cut-outs are bound with binding bars of the same depth as the load-bearing bars. Kick flat / Toe Plate can be used in replace of binding bars at an additional cost.

 

 

Complex Shaping Layouts

Complex shaping layouts would generally be from standard width panels but can be areas with non-standard widths to suit applications. Within these panels there would be a large amount of panel shaping and cut-outs.

Open ends and shaping cut-outs are bound with binding bars of the same depth as the load-bearing bars. Kick flat / Toe Plate can be used in replace of binding bars at an additional cost.
