Custom-made gratings for shipbuilding
Around seven tons of steel gratings are installed per ship in the shipyards that MEA supplies. They form a steel network of walkways, stairs and platforms on which the crew is constantly on the move. This infrastructure must provide maximum surefootedness and be absolutely slip free. Because safety always comes first on board MEA supplies shipyards with high quality custom-made and standard gratings. In addition, the shipbuilding industry purchases sturdy steel tracks and fixings from MEA, with which hanging loads such as gates can be moved.
GRATINGS FOR STAIRS, PLATTFORMS AND MUCH MORE
As a long-term partner of shipyards all over the world, MEA Metal Applications is one of the leading suppliers of gratings in the shipbuilding industry. With tailor-made solutions that can be installed quickly, easily and safely, MEA is providing solutions for shipyards to reduce installation and construction times. MEA produces certified gratings for its clients that meet all norms and regulations for maximum safety and reliability.
INDUSTRIAL GRATING, STANDARD GRATING AND INDIVIDUAL SOLUTIONS
Industrial gratings from MEA offer a high level of installation security, because the interlocking of adjacent gratings means that MEA constructively ensures that the bearing bar always rests on the substructure. Industrial as well as standard gratings are essential elements in shipbuilding. Standard gratings are extremely stable and torsion-resistant. Anti-slip gratings are used for walkways where maximum safety is required. The slip resistance is certified according to BGR 181 and DIN 51130. In areas where the risk of slipping because of the presence of water, oil or dirt is higher special gratings are used. Their slip resistance is considerably increased thanks to recesses in the load-bearing and filler bars.
STAIR GRATING – ESSENTIAL ON BOARD
The stairs on board must guarantee the same level of safety as on walkways and platforms. They are therefore equipped with stair gratings from MEA, which offer a slip resistance class up to R 13 and are available in various widths up to 3000 mm.
CONVEYOR TRACKS AND FASTENINGS
The solution MEA offers in shipbuilding is completed by a large array of robust and corrosion free steel tracks and fastening devices that can be used for supporting sliding doors or conveying hanging loads.
