Walkways, platforms, stairways, spiral stairs, scaffolding - the possibilities are endless. OPTIMO® brings together modern engineering with everyday practicality and safety.

The story behind OPTIMO®

Fueled by the spirit of innovation, Peder Farsen Pedersen – the son of Peder Chr. Pedersen, the founder of PcP, set out to design and develop an alternative to the traditional mesh gratings. The aim was to engineer a versatile yet flexible grating design, that did not have limitations regarding where it could be installed. In 1970, the so-called “Safety Gratings” saw first light and became an instant bestseller. Today all PcP gratings are labelled safety gratings, and the punched hole O-gratings are now recognised under the brand name OPTIMO®.
