Fasteners & Banding
All grating must be firmly fastened in place. Welding panels to the supporting structure provides a superior, permanent installation. Gratings subject to removal can be fastened with Weld Lugs which are shop welded between the bearing bars, or anchored with Saddle Clips. These fasteners, which are provided upon request, are punched with 5/16" holes to receive 1/4" bolts or screws (bolts or screws supplied by others). In areas where welding or drilling is not permitted, "G" Clips can provide the fastening solution. These clips install on the top surface of the grating and create a friction connection with the flange supporting the panel. The narrow spacing of close mesh gratings allows for countersinking of the bearing bars and fastening with flat head screws.
