The Benchmark for Floor Grating in South Africa

Cheap in the floor grating industry is more often than not nasty in the long term, with sub-standard products offering neither durability nor safety. Reputable specifiers and contractors have learned from experience that Andrew Mentis’ Rectagrid RS40 floor grating, manufactured at the world class facility at Elandsfontein, Johannesburg, is unequalled in the market for load bearing capacity.

The unique pressure locking system of the product was pioneered by founder, Andrew Mentis, and has been proven over years of application in the construction and mining sectors. Close tolerances are maintained with the round transversal bar fitting tightly through the pierced bearer bar to achieve the superior structural integrity of the product.

The compressive pressure locking of the bearer bars and transversals forms an exact pitch of 40 mm by 40 mm, with the bearer bars being perfectly upright and without any sideways lean. Consequently, there are no cracks or crevices at intersections that could permit corrosion and the locking method at the intersections utilises the full depth of the bearer bar when calculating loads. The grating panels are flat, square and untwisted.

As a result of the strong intersection locking, banding is unnecessary. Facilities are, however, available to provide banded grating where required.

Highly engineered and extensively tested in the field, Rectagrid RS40 is manufactured locally from raw materials supplied by Mittal and Highveld Steel.
