DURBAR PATTERN FLOORING
For applications where a solid floor is required British Standard Gratings will detail and fabricate panels of durbar pattern / chequer plate. Standard thicknesses available are 4.5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12.5mm determined by the required load and the unsupported span of the support structure.
Applications include platforms, stairtreads, landings, trench covers, and other applications where a solid walking surface is required.
Plated gratings provide the designer with the strength and span capabilities of open steel flooring but with a solid platform surface.
This is generally constructed from a substructure of open type flooring with 3mm or 5mm thick bearing bars and depths to suit the required span and loading criteria. A durbar or plain plate is welded onto the top surface which has the effect of drastically increasing the strength and giving the following benefits:
