RECTAGRID is formed by the unique Mentis process of compressive locking of bearer bars and transversals. This process ensures permanent locking and accurate bearer bar pitching and results in the industry's finest grating.
The RECTAGRID OPEN ENDED SYSTEM or O.E.S. eliminates the banding of panels, improves appearance, simplifies design and erection and reduces costs. Due to the absence of welding, less corrosion occurs.
Accurate pitching gives and aesthetically pleasing pattern matching and unjointed appearance when joining open ended panels.
All transverse bars are 7.6mm in diameter.
Rectagrid O.E.S. standard panels
All RS4O RECTAGRID panels finish on half pitches in both directions with allowance for 4mm clearance between panels. Saddle clamps will automatically hold panels in at full pitch spacing. Calculation can therefore be based on full pitches in both directions without making any allowances for clearance between panels.
Standard O.E.S. panels are available at prices considerably lower than those for banded panels. Customers using standard panels to cut and fit on site, save in drawing office time and labour.
RS4O -25 bearer bars per metre width at 40 mm pitch.
RS8O - 13 bearer bars per metre width at 80mm pitch.
Both RS4O and RS8O are available with non-slip dimples.
Mass per square metre (rounded off) must be incorporated with the specification used. For example:
|Bearer bar Size mm
||O.E.S. Mass/sqm (mild steel uncoated)
|30 x 3.0
|30 x 4.5
|50 x 4.5
|60 x 3.0
