Gratings are designed for high impact and high load applications. The most common materials for grates are steel or stone.
Steel grating is an essential structural component of many builds, particularly in commercial and industrial spaces.
Steel is used in grating due to the following reasons:
Higher heat absorption:
Due to its metallic properties, steel grates tend to absorb and retain heat rapidly. Steel grating could lead to an uncomfortable environment for users over prolonged periods, as the ambient temperature could rise as the day passes.
Not aesthetically pleasing:
The “run” is the measurement of the tread, which needs to be a minimum of 10 inches if the tread has an overhang on it (see image). This is a measurement from the nose of the tread to nose of the tread. You are not required to have a nosing/overhang on your stair treads. But if your stairs don’t have a nosing you are required to have a tread that is at least 11 inches long.
