Learn More

GRATEMATE grating rope protector is specially designed for metal or composite grating walkways known as ‘Kennedy grating’ found on offshore platforms and petrochemical as well as process sites.

The two ropes pass through separate apertures to prevent rope on rope friction when in use.

As the rope tubes are mounted separately in the body, the grating rope protector can straddle the transverse bars of the grating allowing it to fit a larger range of sizes.

The GRATEMATE is made with durable stainless steel construction which provides corrosion resistance; particularly important when used in demanding weather conditions.

Maximum rope diameter is 13 mm maximum rope diameter.

The GRATEMATE requires no tools, preventing dropped objects. Additional cam lever for rapid installation or removal from work environment
