Marco Specialty Steel has all the fiberglass grating accessories and clip assemblies you need. We have the following clips for molded or pultruded grating.
We offer specially designed attachments and clips that both fasten panels together and to secure them to support structures. All clips are made of type 316 Stainless Steel and are available in 1”, 1-1/2” and 2” sizes.
Type M Hold Down Clips: sometimes called FRP saddle clips, used to secure panels to a support using two adjacent grating bars for a secure fit. This provides excellent holding capability and because of this, are recommended for stair treads and most molded and pultruded fiberglass gratings.
Type L Hold Down Clips: for lighter duty use in securing grating panels to support frames.
Type G Hold Down Clips: designed to attach grating to any structural member flange, 3/4” or smaller in thickness, with no drilling required. The lower jaw of the clip grips the support flange when the bolt is torqued. A heavier top clip then completes the assembly to carry the loads. Providing excellent bi-directional holding capability for molded square mesh fiberglass grating.
Type C End Panel Clips: provides a simplified method for joining side bars of panels that are butted end to end to minimize differential defections when their joints fall between supports. C clips are also used in grating leg systems for panel abutments. The lower nut is welded to clip so installation is from the top side of the fiberglass grating floor. C clips should be placed every 2′-3′ to meet industry requirements.
Type W: designed to secure covered grating or Fiber-Plate to a structure.
Type M Hold Down Clamps: 316 stainless steel clips used to secure panels to support using two adjacent grating bars for a secure fit.
Type G Hold Down Clamps: stainless steel clips designed to attach grating to any structural member flanges, 3/4” or smaller in thickness. (no drilling required)
Type T Hold Down Clamps: for below the pultruded fiberglass grating surface attachment and should be specified in pairs as shown.
Type J Hold Down Clamps: specified to hold one fiberglass grating load bar to the support for lighter duty loads.
Depending on your grating application, you will want to consider:
Many of our customers ask why there isn’t simply one type of clip for installing our different types of FRP gratings. That’s because we want to give you the most flexibility possible for your application. In some cases, a low-cost clip is enough to hold your grating in place, while in other cases you need more clamping force with our heavier-duty fasteners.
