Bar Grating from McNichols contributes to high-end architecture while performing multiple functions. The versatile product is often used for platform and walkway applications such as decks or balconies, and is optimal for load-bearing surfaces that require the passage of water, snow, light, or other elements. Bar Grating can also be a striking architectural component with many creative applications. For example, many architects utilize grating as façades or sunshades. In addition to a unique look, it also lowers utility bills through natural cooling and shelter from the sun, a beneficial feature when pursuing LEED certification.
