Malaysian inventor, Mr. Bugs Tan has successfully invented a light weight steel grating system recently. He called it Litewalk. Grating are commonly used on oil rigs, refineries, petrol chemical plants, power plant and any other industrial facility that’s require industrial walk ways.
The inventor uses the same steel material as those used in common grating but he has successfully improved the design and made Litewalk unique where it is able to save its weight by 35%. This comes along with the saving of material also by 35%, which resulted in making the finish product for Litewalk cheaper than those found in the market. The design of Litewalk has an arch shaped, thus making it stronger. Litewalk grating is able to take 12% more load. More importantly, this new design has multiple round embossed rings on the surface. And this provides the traction on our feet when we walked-on it. This anti-slip design has made Litewalk grating the safest grating in the industry.
