Galvanised Fixing Clips
Steel Grating Ltd provides a universal fixing clip designed to suit our series 1, series 2 and series 3 Mild Steel grating options with the load bar sizes from 20mm up to 50mm. These clips comprise of a top "M"clip designed to saddle over the top of the grating and a bottom "J"clip that when applicable is designed to fasten the underside of the grating to the support. The bottom clip captivates the nut meaning that fastening the grating to the supports can be done from the top side of the grating for ease of installation
Welding Grating To Its Support
Welding grating to the supporting structure is deemed a suitable process for permanently installed grating or in areas of vibration and lateral load movement. Steel Grating recommends a 25mm long, 6mm ﬁllet weld at 1000mm centres. Minimum number of welds per panel is 4.
Welding Fixing Lugs To Grating
Fixing lugs can be provided on grates if necessary. This comprises of a ﬂat bar welded between the load bars with a hole drilled in it. The ﬁxing lug is usually located ﬂush with the bottom side of the grating and the centres of the holes for the ﬁxing lugs are determined by the spacing's of the load bars.
