ATLAS-SSI bar racks are used as the first line of defense in a water intake system.

Designed to stop heavier and bulkier material, ATLAS-SSI bar racks are fabricated using coated carbon steel or stainless steel. 

The spacing between the bars is fixed and sized according to the type of debris to be encountered as well as water differential and water flow.

Depending on the size of the bar racks, it can be manufactured as one piece or in multiple segments. Bar rack installation involves the use of new or existing guide rails on the sides of a concrete structure that allow the racks to be lowered into the water and facilitate removal for periodic painting and servicing. 

The bar racks can be equipped with a raking mechanism to remove the debris trapped on the front of the bar racks, making your intake more efficient. The automated unit can be operated manually or automatically.
