The Grating Clip™ fastener from BeamClamp is a cost effective method of securing steel grating to existing structural steel members. Clamping the grating eliminates costly and time consuming welding and drilling. Access below the grating is not required, resulting in a quick and simple installation.
The Grating Clip™ fastener can be installed with a screwdriver and can be easily removed to allow the grating to be repositioned or removed for maintenance purposes. The Grating Clip™ fastener will suit grating bar widths from 1-3/16 to 1-5/8 and grating bar depths up to 2 to ensure that most standard grating sections can be accommodated. This product is supplied with a galvanized finish.
The Grating Clip™ is available from our specialist subsidiary company LNA Solutions Inc, based in Ann Arbor Michigan. For technical information please visit the LNA Solutions website.
Quick Railing Upright Installation on Floor Grating
Not many options are available for attaching a handrail to a steel grating floor. Welding is one option, but that can be costly and dangerous. Offset handrail that attached to the side of the structure is another option, but installation can be difficult.
KEE SAFETY® has designed a new component, (KEE KLAMP® Type 262) which, when used with a grating clip, (G Clip GM) makes attaching handrail uprights to steel, aluminum or fiberglass grating even easier. Using these two components allows you to connect handrail uprights to floor gratings in a simple and straight forward manner from a single side of the grating surface.
See the pictures above and instructions below to understand just how easy installation can be.
Insert the bottom half of the G Clip from the top side of the grating.
Connect the grating clip to the grating with the fastener.
Slip the KEE KLAMP® Type 262 onto the grating clip bolt.
Fasten the fitting to the clip with standard nuts and washers.
Set upright pipe in place and tighten the set screws. In several minutes a connection can be created that is as strong as a weld, but is not prone to rust and requires no specialized labor to install.
