Ironsmith has been making tree grates, trench grates and bollards under the IRONSMITH banner for over thirty years. In 1984 IRONSMITH was the first tree grate manufacturer to produce a 1/4" slot opening width tree grate. IRONSMITH developed the Starburst Series 1 and Series 2 in response to requests from Las Vegas hotels for a grate that would not trap ladies spike high heel shoes. Five years later the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed and IRONSMITH removed all grates with slots over 1/2" from our product line to promote improved safety for all pedestrians.
