Major Trade Names

Model GG G-Clip

Model GG G-Clip

The GG-type G-clip helps to fasten 19-space bar gratings to horizontal-faced steel structural units. Its unique top provides better holding strength and the patented bottom connects to the beam underside. It includes a hex-headed screw to bolt the top & bottom unit securely and comes with different ...

lengths to suit the grating height being installed. It is available in galvanised, steel and aluminium construction variants.

F-10 Series Saddle Clips

F-10 Series Saddle Clips

Saddle clips are designed for attaching gratings to structural members and feature an oval-shaped hole to accommodate a screw or a carriage bolt. They include an M-shaped metal piece that fits over the grating upper surface and a screw with a fully threaded area for securely connecting the grating t...

o the structure. They are available in galvanised and stainless steel versions for resisting corrosion and rust in wet conditions.

GT-R Series Galvanised Tops

GT-R Series Galvanised Tops

These tops are sized to fit many grating sizes and provide more hold-down strength than standard saddle clips. They are used with self-drilling screws to offer quick installation.

Grating Fasteners Competitive Advantages

GP-Fastener

GP-Fastener

The GP-fastener is designed to attach devices to grating surfaces. It is suitable for situations where a single grating panel deflects downward due to traffic. This fastener combines the strength of two panels, thus sharing the load evenly and reducing deflection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use these grating clips in outdoor applications?

Yes, grating clips can be used in outdoor applications. However, users should ensure that the clips have suitable construction for outdoor use, like stainless steel or aluminium and that they are protected from the elements to prevent rust or corrosion.

Are grating clips suitable for load-bearing applications?

Some grating clips provide additional structural support and can be used as load-bearing devices. However, most grating clips can only secure & stabilize gratings instead of providing structural support.

What are the different parts of the brand's grating clips?

These unique fasteners consist of three parts:

  • The top plate with a stamped indentation for enhanced beam strength.
  • Grip-jaw with two legs for connecting to the under-side of the structure.
  • The screw that is to be cut to the appropriate length for handling the grating thickness.
  • These clips work like a C-clamp and are strong enough for fastening without deforming.

How to install ALGG grating fasteners?

  • Hold the G-clip square top in hand, allowing the body portion to hang downward.
  • Fit the body between two bearing bars and lower the unit until the body of the fastener is below the grating bottom.
  • Slide the unit laterally, allowing it to fit under the structural member flange.
  • Pull upward on the top of the G-clip, holding upward force.
  • Tighten the bolt to connect the two parts with a wrench to complete the installation of the G-clip.

What type of tool is required to install G-clips?

G-clips can be installed using a standard, hand-held 7/16-inch nut driver. Other hand tools like socket wrenches or torque wrenches can also be used, depending on the fastener.

What are bar gratings?

Bar gratings are made from aluminium, steel or fibreglass and are arranged parallel to each other in a grid-like design. They offer high strength, durability & slip resistance and provide easy customisation to fit specific dimensions and load requirements. These gratings can be used in applications like flooring, walkways, stair treads, platforms and drainage covers.
