With a little imagination, a material as commonplace as aluminum grating can appear sophisticated. Pali cites this handrail as a prime example. He's partial to bar grating from BarnettBates Corp., which manufactures aluminum grating in 1-inch and 2 ½-inch I-bars or in flat rectangular bearing bars measuring 1 inch by 1/8 inches and up to 2½ inches by 2 3/16 inches.
