Anchoring Devices

bar grating anchoring

All bar grating must be firmly fastened in place with bar grating anchoring products. Welding panels to the supporting structure provides a superior, permanent installation. Although, for bar grating that is subject to removal, they can be fastened with Weld Lugs which are shop welded between the bearing bars or anchored with Saddle Clips.

In 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 bar grating and create a friction connection with the flange supporting the panel. The narrow spacing of close mesh aluminum grating allows for countersinking of the bearing bars and fastening with flat head screws.

We carry a full line of anchoring devices, including saddle clips, grating clamps, anchor blocks, Z clips, plank clips, plank lugs and countersunk lands for close mesh aluminum (special order).
