CANTON, Ohio, June 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Ohio Gratings, Inc. has expanded its popular Wheels n’ Heels® line of heavy duty steel grating to include the Metro and InVent styles. The new styles offer all of the advantages of the original Wheels n’ Heels with some recent additional features.
The Wheels n’ Heels Metro replaces the original Long Span Series II. The new style offers a greater strength-to-weight ratio and has an improved aesthetic appeal with no top welds. The Wheels n’ Heels® Metro is available with 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch spacing between the bars, allowing for maximum ventilation for a variety of grating needs.
Similar to the Wheels n’ Heels® Metro, the new Wheels n’ Heels InVent provides an improved strength-to-weight ratio and eye-pleasing design. The Wheels n’ Heels InVent offers a different design from the Metro in that the main support bearing bars are under the top surface bars. Additionally, the support bars run in the direction perpendicular to the top surface bars. Because of this feature, Wheels n’ Heels InVent offers the most flexibility in grating support projects.
Both the Wheels n’ Heels Metro and InVent are available in stainless or carbon steel and can be modified with a slip resistant coating.
The Wheels n’ Heels line was introduced in the early 1990’s. It is the first grating product to combine the AASHTO H-20 wheel load ratings with the pedestrian comfort requirements that meet or exceed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines. The Wheels n’ Heels line is specifically designed to easily accommodate wheelchair and high heel traffic.
Since 1970, Ohio Gratings, Inc. has been a leader in the aluminum and steel bar grating market. With headquarters in Canton, Ohio and additional facilities in Florida, South Carolina, Texas and Utah, Ohio Gratings, Inc. is committed to providing quality products and quality service.
