Perforated Metal Planks (Aluminium)

Application

  • BN-G: Indoor environments where the primary considerations are a closed smooth surface for guaranteed walking comfort.
  • BN-O: Suitable for use with normal pedestrian traffic
  • BN-OD: Marina and dock environments.
  • BN-OP5 and BN-OP5 (with treads): Suitable for use on public walkway areas, and is stiletto proof.
  • BP: Used in large areas which have to be covered in industrial areas and where stringent demands are made on load bearing capacity.
  • BR: Suitable for areas of heavy loads on small contact areas, e.g. vehicle navigability on ramps or parking areas.
  • BZ: Environments where fats, grease and oils are used.

Product Options

Type:

- BN-G:

  • Has closed, punched dimple indentations, pressed upwards in the top surface. Offers high anti-slip resistance.
  • Perforation type: Closed and raised punched dimples.
  • Open area: 0%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30–150 mm.

- BN-GA:

  • Includes a mixture of closed punched holes facing upwards, and conical drain holes facing downwards. Grating has no sharp edges on the top surface, and can be walked on easily without the need for footwear. Water drains easily through the holes, so that no hydroplaning can occur.
  • Perforation type: 8 mm punched holes, 10 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 2.4%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm and 300 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm and 150 mm.

- BN-O:

  • Similar to BN-OP, with punched holes, which are pressed downwards. Provides increased drainage performance, and light and air permeability.
  • Perforation type: 8 mm punched holes, 10 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 5%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm and 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm and 150 mm.

- BN-OD:

  • Plank with two different hole sizes; the holes punched upwards have a diameter of 14 mm (to allow quicker drainage), while those punched downwards have a diameter of 7 mm.
  • Perforation type: 8 mm punched holes, 10 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 27%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm and 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm and 150 mm.

- BN-OP:

  • Similar to BN-O, with double the amount of drainage holes. Provides increased drainage performance, and light and air permeability.
  • Perforation type: 7 mm punched holes, 10 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 7.5%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm, 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30 mm, 50 mm, 75 mm, 100 mm, 125 mm and 150 mm.

- BN-OP5:

  • The punched grid pattern correlates with the BN-OP plank, but has 5 mm drainage holes and 5 mm slip resistance holes. Allows for a stiletto heel proof surface with high slip resistance. The small hole configuration makes it difficult to see from below.
  • Perforation type: 5 mm punched holes.
  • Open area: 7.5%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm and 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 40–100 mm.

- BN-OP5 (with treads):

  • BN-OP5, with special visible nosing treads which are public access compliant, helping the visually impaired to establish the edge of the treads. The nosing can be polyester powder-coated to any RAL colour; consult manufacturer for details.
  • Perforation type: 5 mm punched holes.
  • Open area: 7.5%.
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm, and 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 40–100 mm.

- BP (parallel):

  • Smooth line profiling and high loading capacity.
  • Perforation type: 19 mm punched holes, 20 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 27.2%.
  • Size: Widths of 150–250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30–150 mm.

- BP-UE:

  • Similar to the BP, with a higher slip resistance due to additional raised punching.
  • Perforation type: 19 mm punched holes, 20 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 32%.
  • Size: Widths of 150–400 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 30–150 mm.

- BR (rhombic):

  • Rhombic profile with extra high punching (punched holes at 2.5 mm).
  • Perforation type: 19 mm diameter punched holes.
  • Open area: 23–42% (dependent on width).
  • Size: Widths of 150 mm, 200 mm and 250 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 40–150 mm.

- BZ:

  • Has distinctive surface profiling and a high level of slip resistance.
  • Perforation type: 14 mm punched holes, 15 mm ball proof.
  • Open area: 38%.
  • Size: Widths of 120–480 mm; lengths of up to 10 000 mm; heights of 40–150 mm.
