Bar Grating Anchoring Devices

When the grating is designed to be removable or when welding is not practical, consider these mechanical fasteners. The minimum fastener spacing for pedestrian applications is equal to the minimum weld pattern illustrated below.

Saddle-Clip-2Saddle Clips

The saddle clip bridges two bearing bars and is attached with 1/4″ self-tapping bolt, 1/4″ self threader, 1/4″ weld stud or 1/4″ bolt and nut when hole is drilled through supporting flange. Available for 15/16″, 1-3/16″ and 1-3/8″ bearing bar spacings (15, 19 and 22 space) in carbon and stainless steel. Fasteners should be specified separate from clips.

Grate-Fast-ClipGrate Fast Clips

The Type GF Grate-Fast Fastener enables rapid and secure connection of open grate flooring to steel sections. Grating can be connected by one man only, working from above, without the need to drill the steel, or weld on site.

The standard product (LGF037) consists of a pre-assembled top-hat bracket, socket head cap screw and body casting and provides the additional benefit of increased clamping force over lower quality clips.

For specific applications, it can be supplied with an off-set top-hat bracket (see option 2) to accommodate non-standard grating bars.

Welding Information

When bar grating needs to be a permanent installation, fasten bar grating in place by securing welding panels to the supporting structure. The diagram below shows the recommended minimum weld size and spacing for pedestrian applications.

Applications where there will be vehicular traffic usually require additional welding, size and spacing as determined by the specifying authority.

Minimum Weld Pattern for Pedestrian Applications

Attachments should be placed at intermediate supports in the middle of the panels and at four bearing bar ends, 6 from each side of panel. Welds should be 3/16 fillet welds, 3/4 long. Heavy-Duty grating may require additional welding to meet application needs. Click here to download a printable PDF file showing attachment locations.
