MAGNUS GROUP FLOOR GRATING

MAGNUS GRATING

Magnus' Pressure Locked Grating is the most popular class of grating supplied to South African markets.
Pressure Locked Grating is engineered by pushing round bar into pre-punched holes through the bearer bars and permanently locking the round bar into place by a swaging process.
Pressure locked grating eliminates the need for any type of welding to form the panels.
The Magnus Group can offer a smooth or plain surface, serrated surface or non-slip surface.

Pressure Locked Grating is available in the following stock panel sizes and can be supplied in Mild Steel, Galvanised, 3cr12 and Stainless Steel. Other sizes can be supplied and are made-to-order.

MAGNUS TAILORED GRATING

The Magnus Group operates under approximately 1500m² factory space and have various teams in order to carry out tailored grating jobs to suit specific customer requirements.

The Magnus Group is able to offer their customers any technical advice that they may need before ordering in order to provide the correct fabricated grating job.

We pride ourselves in quality and have strict quality control procedures that we follow.

All tailored grating work is hard-stamped with a relevant drawing number on each panel in order to do layouts as quickly and efficiently as possible when on site.

Once Magnus have completed certain stages of the tailored grating process, a layout is carried out to make sure all sizes are correct as per the drawings. Thereafter the material can be sent for bitumin dipping or galvanising.
