Interior Walkways - Davis Wade Stadium - Mississippi State


Challange

P&R Metals worked with two local fabricators in determining the right product for the North and South end zone scoreboards at Mississippi State University.  The issue was having a grating that is lightweight but strong enough to span a safe distance without additional structural steel.  The other issue was ventilation due to all of the heat generated from the video board.


Solution

P&R Metals suggested going with 19W4 (1" x 1/8") carbon steel light-duty welded bar grating.  This grating can clear span up to 4' 0" for pedestrian loads.  The grating was used on 5 levels per scoreboard and also painted black.  Once construction was completed, the entire structure was shrouded.  Please contact your P&R Metals sales representative for additional product information
