Fiberglass grating attachments and clips from Direct Metals® are specially designed to secure fiberglass grating or plates to the supporting structures. Additionally, fiberglass grating attachments and clips are used to fasten together adjacent grating panels, which minimizes load induced differential deflection. All fiberglass attachments and clips are made of Type 316 stainless steel, and are available in 1-, 1-1/2- and 2-inch sizes. When installing fiberglass grating attachments and clips, be sure to space clips a maximum of 48 inches on center and use at least four clips per piece of fiberglass grating (at least eight clips per 4-by-12-foot panel).
Clip Assemblies For Molded Grating:
Type Z Hold Down Clips:Type Z hold down clips will secure fiberglass grating panels to support frames.
Type F End Panel Clips:Type F end panel clips provide a simplified method for joining factory edges of adjacent abutting fiberglass panels (not for use with some resins).
Type G Hold Down Clips:Type G hold down clips will attach fiberglass grating to any structural member flange, 3/4" or smaller in thickness, with no drilling required.
Type M Hold Down Clips:Type M hold down clips will secure fiberglass panels to a support in the same manner as type Z Clips but are designed to use two adjacent grating bars for a more secure fit. Type M hold down clips are similar in design to metal grating saddle clips.
