ATTENTION MUST BE PAID TO APPROPRIATE FLOOR GRATING SELECTION

Floor grating is a critical element in process plants and similar structures, yet it is often the Cinderella of components when it comes to the design and engineering work. For this reason, Andrew Mentis is urging design houses and EPCM contractors to pay particular attention to the selection of appropriate floor grating products.

Lance Quinlan, national technical sales consultant at Andrew Mentis, says that while floor grating could be considered an off-the-shelf product and popular sizes are generally available ex-stock, it is a serious error to believe that this product complies with the one-size-fits-all-rule.

Andrew Mentis is urging design houses and EPCM contractors to pay particular attention to the selection of appropriate floor grating products.

“There is more than one option available when it comes to floor grating, and we have increasingly found that many younger engineers are not aware of this, and this is where Andrew Mentis’ strength of technical expertise and applications knowledge plays a vital role in industry,” Quinlan says.

In urging design houses and engineering operations to speak to the company’s technical team prior to the feasibility stage on projects, Quinlan says that the company concedes that architects and engineers do not know all the ins and out when it comes to floor grating. “This is why we interact so closely with our customer base enabling them to make appropriate and fit-for-purpose choices when it comes to floor grating,” he says.
