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.
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.
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.
