Platform Gratings and Steps

Platform Gratings and Steps

Walking surface is another hygienicaly important aspect of the platform constuction. The most offten used solutions are listed below sorted from the highest to the lowest hygienic value:
– checker plate – easy to clean, good anti-slip features;
– upturned steel perforation (USP) platform – easy to clean, very good anti-slip features;
– mash-grating – poor hygienic quality,
very good anti-slip features.

The checker plate and the USP type of platforms are cosidered as hygienic application in food production areas. We find USP design as the most optimal solution with optimal combination of hygienic and safety requirements. Mash grating platforms are the least hygienic and should be avoided in F&B production zones.

All measures that optimize the design and propose hygienic solutions in the project bring invaluable  benefits to the end customer. Through optimization we reduce production costs, improve user safety. On the other hand, by introducing hygienic design solutions we significantly reduce the cost of cleaning (washing) and improve the safety of food production.



Smart increase of efficiency – finite element analysis – advantages

A very important element of any engineering structure (for example platforms or technical walkways) is a static calculation, which assures the end user of the load-bearing capacity of the construction. Each structure supplied to the F&B should be accompanied by a static design documentation. Ideally, the static calculation is to be carried out already at the basic design stage. However, the task is time-consuming and creates a burden on the client’s wallet.

Estimates also brings the risk of under or overestimating of structural assumptions. Finite Element Analysis – due to very  accurate algorithms applied is a great support to structural design and construction engineers. Using the method at the very early stage of design process, we can analyse the mechanical features of a structure and optimise the product in terms of engineering requirements. Savings of up to 30 % in relation to the original input data can be achieved by optimising designs with the help of FEA.
