The system consists of unique serrated tee sections for slip resistance with hidden welds and joints, creating a virtually seamless, visually pleasing, architectural asset to any entrance.
The aluminium and brass grid mats need to be supported on a hard flat surface and a surround frame can be supplied in a similar metal for recessed or cast in installation. The grid mats are supplied in either aluminium or brass.
The aluminium and brass serrated tee bars as standard are 9.5mm wide and are installed at approximately 13mm centres. This small gap between each of the tee’s, whilst being visually effective, allows dirt, dust and water to be trapped in the base of the grid, reducing the tracking of material and water onto the floor surface. The grids can then easily be vacuumed to remove the debris.
The narrow 3.5mm spacings between the tee’s are designed not to interfere with traffic movement over the system and it is recommended that all Lathamgrid grid mats be installed with the longitudinal bars left to right across the doorway as detailed below.
All Lathamgrid grid mats are custom fabricated to each individual application so the options are virtually endless.
Slip Resistance Testing
All Latham Aluminium and Brass Grids and Grates have been independently tested by a NATA approved laboratory in accordance with AS/NZS 4586:2004 Slip Resistance Classifications of New Pedestrian Surface Materials. Under this testing criteria from the information contained in Appendix A and B all Latham Grids and Grates achieve a wet dry classification of VF.
