ESTABLISHED manufacturer Locker Group has extensive experience within the mining industry.

The WA-based company provides a range of screening media solutions for general industrial applications or perforated and expanded metal, wire mesh and conveyor belts.

One of the company’s most popular products is gripspan planking – a safety conscious flooring system assembled from long planks.

The planking is available in standard or serrated tread and slotted profiles designed to guard against falls and trips in work and storage areas, mezzanines and access walkways.

Gripspan planking is manufactured from steel or aluminium, making it lightweight and built to last, and a cost-effective alternative to traditional grating or walkway.

It comes in pre- formed planks, making it easy to transport and it doesn’t require welded joints or rivets to install, which can often hamper the strength of the product.

Gripspan meets the Australian Safety Standard guidelines that stop anything greater than 15mm from falling through a raised walkway, where people are able to walk underneath.

This prevents incidental items such as nuts or screws from dropping and potentially injuring a worker.
