Bar Grating

Our detention equipment fabrication capabilities include bar grating (traditional jail bars). We typically fabricate bar grating as doors, partitions, and grills inside air conditioning units. The bar grating has 7/8" diameter rib bars and 3/8" x 2 ¼" flat bars. Rib bars are notched at a 12" spacing and then assembled with the flat bars to provide a mechanical lock at the intersection without welds. The corners and perimeter joints are welded.

Our bar grating is offered in three levels of security:

  • Mild Steel – No Heat Treating
    This option is used where an inmate has access and is in clear view all of the time.
  • Semi-TR (Tool Resisting) – 7/8" Rib Bars are Heat Treated
    This option is used where an inmate has access and may not be in view for up to 2 hours at a time.
  • Full-TR – Both 7/8" Rib Bars and 3/8" x 2 ¼" Flat Bars are Heat Treated
    This option is used where an inmate has access and may not be in view up to 8 hours at a time.
