panels to the supporting structure provides a superior,
permanent installation. Although, for gratings that
are subject to removal, they can be fastened with Weld
Lugs which are shop welded between the bearing bars, or
anchored with Saddle Clips.
areas where welding or drilling is not permitted, Grating
Clamps can provide the fastening solution. These
bar grating anchoring clips install on the top surface
of the grating and create a friction connection with the
flange supporting the panel. The
narrow spacing of close mesh aluminum gratings allows for
countersinking of the bearing bars and fastening with flat
