CFRP Hold Down Clips
A number of different types of 316SS clips can be supplied to attach various molded and pultruded gratings to supporting members. Although the clips are illustrated here with molded grating products, similar clips are often available for our pultruded grating as well. Contact Fiberglass Grating Systems for more information.
C Clips - C clips were specifically designed to tie two panels of molded fiberglass gratings together to minimize differential defections when their joints fall between supports. C clips are also used in fiberglass grating leg systems for panel abutments. Lower nut is welded to clip so installation is from top side of fiberglass grating floor.
G Clips - When drilling the support member has to be avoided, G clips offer the solution. The lower jaw of the clip grips the support flange when the bolt is torqued. A heavier top clip then completes the assembly to carry the loads. Providing excellent bidirectional holding capability for molded square mesh fiberglass grating.
L Clips - This lighter duty clip should be specified to hold one load bar to the support for lighter duty loads. It is available for molded and pultruded fiberglass gratings.
M Clips - M clips or saddle clips clamp 2 fiberglass grating load bars to the support. This provides excellent holding capability and because of this, are recommended for stair treads and most molded and pultruded fiberglass gratings.
T Clips - T clips offer the solution for below-surface attachment to pultruded fiberglass gratings. When used these FRP clips should be specified in pairs as shown.
W Clips - This 1 ½” diameter fastener is used for holding down plates and covered fiberglass gratings. The W clip’s recessed center allows the fastener to sit flush with this ADA compliant (< ¼” high) hold down clip.
PAW Clips - For the ultimate in holding capacity of square mesh molded fiberglass grating, the exclusive Fiberglass Grating PAW clip should be specified. These clips clamp 4 load bars to the support, offering excellent bidirectional resistance to loads from seismic or other lateral forces.
