Product Options and Specifications
Marco Specialty Steel provides bar grating saddle clips in carbon and stainless steel. Choose stainless for outdoor applications or other environments where superior resistance to corrosion is preferred. For less-demanding applications, carbon steel is an economical alternative.
Saddle clips can be used on grating with 15/16″, 1 3/16″ and 1 3/8″ bearing bar spacings (15, 19 and 22 space sizes). Standard hole sizing supports the use of ¼” self-tapping bolts, self threaders, weld studs or bolt and nut fasteners. Your choice of fastener can be specified with your order.
Saddle Clips vs. G Clips
G clips are similar to bar grating saddle clips but feature a separate bottom component that connects to the underside of the supporting structural beam. As a result, they offer improved strength compared to saddle clips. The other major benefit to G clips is that they are faster and easier to install. G clips are also available with a wider range of top sizes and configurations that expands the range of potential applications.
G clips are more expensive than saddle clips, and they should be reserved for heavy-duty applications where their extra fastening power is required. Marco Specialty Steel can help you assess your needs and your budget to determine the best type of bar grating fastener for you.
