Heelsafe Gratings & Grilles

Architectural Heelsafe Gratings and Grilles (Anti-Slip Walkway, Entrance Floor Grates) combine advanced production technologies with unique design. The application of high-quality stainless steel affords durability and exceptional aesthetics. Steel Architectural Grates and Entrance Grilles are an ideal solution as floor covers or walkway applications. The special Wedge Wire profile improves the natural, self cleaning abilities and reduces the risk of damage to footwear through the unique heelsafe grille properties.

Heelsafe Gratings and Steel Architectural Grilles

Stainless Steel heelsafe grates and walkway grilles are anti-slip resistant

Architectural Heelsafe Grilles / Heelsafe Gratings in Stainless Steel are ideal for anti-slip entrance ways

Architectural stainless steel heelsafe grates and grilles are arduous in application, anti-slip resistant, yet highly aesthetic and elegant once installed.

High resistance to corrosion and detergents, combining strength and durability at both high and low temperatures; stainless steel wedge wire heelsafe gratings remains a constant requirement within the industry.

A durable and environmentally friendly product, architectural gratings and steel floor grilles are an ideal and heel safe solution for the constantly changing ecological demands seen in industrial, commercial and domestic situations, where the ongoing demand for innovation and design is paramount.

Aluminium and lightweight alloy floor grilles

Aluminium and lightweight alloy floor grille alternatives

Aluminium and other lightweight alloys are becoming increasingly popular amongst architects for many construction applications for the following reasons:

  • Low Specific Gravity.
  • High Corrosion Resistance.
  • Ease of manufacturing.
  • High thermal and electrical conductivity, and maintenance of mechanical and physical properties at low temperature.
  • Compared with other metals, aluminium density is low.

Electropolishing utilises a surface technique whereby the Grille / Mesh is brightened, smoothed and protected against corrosion. It also gives surface hardening when applied to chromium-nickel steel. In essence, electropolished surfaces provide greater aesthetics and durability.

Pickle and Passivation

Pickle and Passivation provides a uniform appearance, removing all welding blemishes during the process. Passivation leads to the formation of an oxide layer.

This makes the surface hard and tight, whilst isolating the metal from corrosive environmental impacts.

Shot Blasting

Shot Blasting is an abrasive technique using ceramic or glass micro-balls. The process provides a uniform, dulled surface which eliminates all processing discolorations. GAP can provide wedge wire heating and ventilation grilles with an anti-slip finish (when used in outdoor landmark features). Our standard 240 grit linished finish is by far the most readily used.

Zinc Coating

Electro or hot dipped zinc coating protects the product against corrosion and can often be added as the final finish for an industrial appearance or as a primer for powder coating. In a corrosive environment zinc coating provides significantly higher corrosion resistance properties than a non zinc coated steel finish.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a technique that offers excellent corrosion protection and is available in a wide range of colours. Aluminium, carbon steel and galvanised steel products are all suitable for this process. It’s also an ideal finish for both indoor and outdoor applications.


Anodising is an electrochemical process that converts the metal surface into a decorative, durable, corrosion-resistant and anodic oxide finish. Anodising is accomplished by immersing the aluminium into an acid electrolyte bath and passing an electric current through the medium.
