Unistrut Catwalks Systems, designed and installed by Unistrut Midwest, offer a cost-efficient solution for the conversion of unusable interstitial space into an efficient overhead maintenance catwalk walkway space. Unistrut Midwest design and engineering teams have been utilizing Unistrut Metal Framing and United Interlock Grating to build modular catwalk systems that are strong, lightweight, economical, and versatile.
The Unistrut Catwalk System is unique from typical structural steel walkways, in that Unistrut Catwalks are designed with all bolted connections and eliminates the need for welding on almost all projects. The bolted connections allow the system to be modified, expanded, or altered to adapt to future requirements.
Advantages of Unistrut Catwalk Systems
Pre-Fabrication: The modular nature of Unistrut components allows our Catwalks to be Pre-Fabricated in our warehouse to save on time and on site labor. Pre-fabrication allows us to safely construct the catwalk components on the ground and reduces the amount of overhead work needed on a project greatly reducing the hazards associated with working overhead.
Lightweight, High Performance: Unistrut uses lightweight Pre-Galvanized or Aluminum plank grating and Unistrut Metal Framing Supports which reduces the overall dead load on the primary steel when compared to conventional structural steel systems.
Anti Skid Protection: Unistrut Plank grating features a surface that provides 360 degrees of slip resistance.
Weld-Free Designs: Unistrut Catwalks use only bolted connections. From the beam clamps to the grating clips, all of the Unistrut Catwalk connections use bolted hardware in lieu of welding. Many walkways are installed in existing facilities where welding is not feasible or allowed, which makes the Unistrut system ideal for these applications.
OSHA Approved Walkways: Unistrut systems are designed with the latest OSHA walkway guidelines as our minimum standard. Unistrut includes handrail and kick plate on all of our Catwalk Systems.
