Steel Driveway Grating Supplier
General Introduction to Steel Driveway Gratings
Steel driveway grating is used as a drainage cover to provide an excellent solution for protecting the driveway and walkway from being flooded or damaged by rainwater, snow, and dust. It gives a smooth driving experience to vehicles moving over it. It can also give your driveway and walkway an athletically appealing look by hiding the imperfections of the concrete underneath.
The steel driveway gratings are manufactured with carbon steel, aluminum steel, or stainless steel to have a greater strength-to-weight ratio and resistance to corrosion and rust. It also increases its load-bearing capacity, durability, and life.
Our Carbon Steel Driveway grating is the most affordable option, while stainless steel driveway gratings offer extra life and chemical resistance, making it most suitable for an alkaline environment. In contrast, Aluminum steel driveway grating is relatively lightweight and resistant to corrosion.
Apart from the material, our driveway grating is also available in different designs, including steel trench grates with angle frames, angle-sided grates, box grates, swaged-locked grates, and close mesh grates.
Multiple bar spacings, frame profiles, sizes and widths, and surface treatments are also available for steel driveway gratings.

Grating is an easy and affordable way to create a barrier between concrete or asphalt driveways and vehicles. The angle-sided steel grates are designed to keep the debris from entering the space below. They can be used on all types of driveways, including smooth surfaces, grassy areas, and curbs.
These grates also protect against erosion caused by rain or snow melt, which makes them ideal for use in areas prone to harsh weathering.
The angled-sided grating can be made from aluminum steel, carbon steel, galvanized steel and stainless steel. It can have a smooth and serrated surface. Clients can also alter its opening size to prevent objects from falling in or prevent drainage from blocking. Besides, they can also choose between different grate widths and depths, angle sizes, mesh sizes, and bar spacings.
The Box grates feature a durable steel frame and a steel grating attached to it on one side with hinges. This enables this grating type to open like a box and enables you to clean the driveway trench easily.
Box grates for driveways are a great way to keep the snow and ice out of your driveway in the wintertime. They’re made from galvanized steel and have a smooth, easily cleaned surface that allows snow to slide off easily. The box grates are designed to fit on top of a standard concrete driveway, but they can also be used on other types of surfaces, such as asphalt or gravel.
Box gratings are resistant to chemicals, corrosion, and rust. Besides, they are lightweight, strong, durable, long-lasting, and come with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.
This type of gratings is also available in stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum steel, and galvanized steel. It is ideal for driveways where drain trenches usually get clogged, filled with dirt or waste, or require frequent cleaning for other reasons.
Our box grating is aesthetically appealing and can have a smooth or serrated surface. The Serrated surface adds extra slip resistance to it.

The Process Flow & Duration Estimation for Steel Driveway Gratings
1. Design Consultation:
Our dedicated, experienced, and highly-skilled design team spends 1 to 2 days with the client to understand their grating application needs, their budget, and what they expect from us.
Our team takes into account various factors, including driveway trench dimensions, expected traffic type (pedestrian, normal vehicle, heavy vehicle), frequency and its load, environment and weather conditions, budget, etc.
All this is done to suggest the best steel driveway gratings and other products to our clients to ensure maximum quality, durability, and service life.
2. Preparation of Raw Material:
Once the design is finalized and approved by the client, the order is placed after an upfront amount, and our design team proceeds the design and instructions to the manufacturing department.
Our dedicated raw material procurement team sources the raw material from reliable, sustainable, eco-friendly suppliers and gets it inspected by our QC team to ensure the material is of the best quality and as per international quality standards. This process usually takes 1 to 2 days.
3. Manufacturing of Steel Driveway Gratings:
Now, the raw material like bearing bars, cross bars, and angle bars are cut into pieces of the desired length and then welded, press-locked, or swage-locked to get the desired form of the grating.
For welded steel driveway grating, the cross bars are placed over the pre-punched slots of bearing bars in the perpendicular direction, and their intersection point is welded to form a grid-like structure.
For press-locked steel driveway grating, the bearing bars and cross are placed together perpendicularly, and their intersecting points are joined using high pressure by a hydraulic machine.
For swage-locked steel driveway grating, the diamond-shaped holes are made on bearing bars, and cross bars are placed within the holes and pressed using a hydraulic machine to lock the bearing bars to their place.
Next, an angle frame is made for grating (if it is a trench grate with an angle bar), or angle bars are welded to the grating’s side (if it is angle-sided grating), or grating is attached to a frame with the help of hinges (for box gratings).
4. Finalizing and Inspection:
Once the steel driveway grating is complete, desired surface treatment is applied, such as painting, hot-dip galvanizing, or electroplating. Besides, all the necessary holes are made, and irregularities are fixed after thoroughly inspecting the gratings.
It is ensured that every piece of gratings meets international quality and safety standards and fulfills the client’s grating requirement.
5. Packaging and Shipment:
After the QC team approves the gratings, they are wrapped with high-quality plastic and placed inside a box. The box is then filled with Styrofoam or bubble-wrapped to prevent the grating from damage or unnecessary movement during transportation. The box is then sealed and labeled with the client’s location and other instructions. Finally, our reliable shipping partners ship them to the client’s address.

A:There are three types of surface treatments for steel gratings: hot-dip galvanizing, electro-galvanizing, and powder coating.
- Hot-dip galvanizing is to immerse the grating in the molten zinc bath to make a uniform zinc coating on the surface of the steel grating to protect them from corrosion. This is the most common type of surface treatment for steel gratings, as it is effective and relatively inexpensive.
- Electro-galvanizing is a less common method of surface treatment, in which steel gratings are coated with a layer of zinc using an electrical current. This method is not as effective as hot-dip galvanizing, but it is often used when hot-dip galvanizing is not an option.
- Powder coating is a process of applying a powdery paint to steel gratings. This type of surface treatment is more expensive than hot-dip galvanizing or electro-galvanizing, but it provides a more durable finish.
