A grating is a surface with a regular pattern of parallel or perpendicular bars, used for various purposes such as flooring, fencing, drainage, or screening.
The term “gratings detail” may refer to the specific design or specifications of a grating, including the type of material, size, spacing, and strength of the bars, as well as any additional features or attachments.
Drainage gratings in a basement is typically used to allow water to flow away from the foundation of the building. Drainage gratings are typically made from materials that are resistant to corrosion, such as plastic or fiberglass.
The gratings bars are spaced closely together to prevent debris from clogging the drainage system. Drainage gratings are usually placed in a trough or channel that runs along the perimeter of the basement floor.

A gratings detail drawing is a technical drawing that provides specific information about a grating, including its dimensions, materials, and any additional features or attachments.
The drawing will typically include the following information:
- The overall dimensions of the grating, including the width, length, and height
- The size and spacing of the bars in the grating
- The type of material used for the grating, such as steel, aluminum, or stainless steel
- Any surface treatments or finishes applied to the grating, such as powder coating, galvanizing, or anodizing
- Any additional features or attachments, such as nosing, kick plates, or anchoring devices
- Any load or safety ratings or codes that the grating must meet
- Any notes or special instructions for the installation or maintenance of the grating.
A gratings detail drawing may also include cross-sectional views, exploded views, and other visual aids to help convey the information clearly and accurately.
The gratings detail drawing is typically created by an engineer or drafter and serves as a guide for the manufacturer and installer of the gratings. The drawing should be clear, accurate, and easy to understand.
