English term or phrase: "open grid steel"
Material used in heavy duty decking for bridges and such. It's propbably some kind of very resistant material so I "think" the word "rejilla" (for grid) is probably not apropriate here. Then again, I may be wrong.
Thanks,

Thank you. Actually, the points should be divided between you and the person who suggested the word "malla". Thanks to the both of you.

tela metálica de acero/ acero para tela metálica


Explanation:
“grid” es una “tela (o “malla”) métalica”, en este caso, de acero.

En: http://www.big-o.com/constr/grating.htm se puede ver un gráfico de “open grid steel”, similar a lo que es la tela metálica (http://www.advance.com.ar/usuarios/a.g.inter/telas_metlicas.h...

No pude encontrar a qué hace referencia “open”, posiblemente al tipo de entramado de la tela metálica...

Yo lo traduciría como “tela metálica de acero” o “acero para tela metálica”, según el contexto

Espero te resulte de utilidad
