parallel grating panels to each other.
Galvanized Carbon Steel
The model GP- describes an assembly of fastener
parts that can be used to fasten parallel grating panels to each
other. Top part is a G-Clips unique top for better holding strength
and to suit 19W4 grating. Second, a G-Clips patented bottom bar
connects between the grating panel underside and projects sideways
under the second grating panel. A hex-headed cap screw connects
the two, and its length suits the grating height being installed
Use of this model can reduce the deflection that often occurs
when a single grating panel deflects downward due to traffic,
and adjacent but unconnected panels cause an inadvertent trip
hazard. By combining the strength of two panels, the load is shared,
and deflection is lessened. Used properly, this can reduce trip
How to install
Model GP- can be installed entirely from
above the grating surface. Hold the device by its upper grating
fastener top unit, allowing the lower part to hang under the grating
surface. Rotate until the lower part projects sideways under the
adjacent grating panel. Tighten in place. In the second panel,
install a model GG- I companion, tightening onto the projecting
Usually these models are used in only
a minor quantity, and suited to specific job site conditions.
Available in boxes of 25 assemblies of
GP- models only. Also available in boxes of 25 pairs, GP- and
GG- I assemblies. These devices are usually in stock and can be
shipped same day if ordered before 2:00 p.m. CST.
