Perforated metal’s design allows air to pass through the floors and walls of grain dryers, keeping your product fresh and your staff safe from slippage. If you’re looking for ventilated structures and storage for your grain, Metalex has over 50 years of experience engineering metal components for grain dryers.

Our team can meet specifications that include materials for:

  • Grain Dryer WallsPerforated metal provides a continuous flow of air, allowing grain to dry quickly and thoroughly.
  • Grain Bin Flooring – Metalex’s perforated metal solutions are ideal for farm storage grain bin flooring. The perforated metal allows continuous airflow through the grain to prevent bacterial growth by carrying moisture away from the grain. This is especially effective for bin-batch drying methods, which require full perforated floors for drying.
  • Safety Grating Steps & Walkways – Our Deck Span® safety grating features a unique diamond-shaped design, providing extra slip resistance and excellent load-carrying capabilities. Deck Span® has been manufactured for catwalks, stair treads, and walkways in farm equipment and grain drying solutions.
  • Conveyor, Maintenance, & Access Platforms – Metalex Open-Grip® safety grating platforms are self-cleaning. Debossed holes allow debris to pass through to maintain safe walking surfaces throughout.
