G-Clips Model ALGG

Attach T-Bar Fiberglass Grating to Structural Shapes.

G-Clip model ALGG is an aluminum grating fastener used to fasten 19-space bar grating to structural shapes, where the structural flange is in a horizontal plane.

G-Clip model ALGG fastener consists of three parts, which are assembled at the factory into a complete installation unit, packed 50 units to a standard box.
The principal part is the grip-jaw portion of the assembly, which has a female-thread form in its upper portion. This grip-jaw is die-stamped, with die-cut, toothed-shaped segments facing upward, which contact the underside of the structural member. The second part is the stamped top, which fits flat over the grating upper surface.

The body and top are joined by the third part, a 1/4″-20 threaded bolt. This bolt varies in length to suit what is required for the application.

Model ALGG

G-Clip model ALGG is an aluminum grating fastener used to fasten 19-space bar grating to structural shapes, where the structural flange is in a horizontal plane.

G-Clip model ALGG fastener consists of three parts, which are assembled at the factory into a complete installation unit, packed 50 units to a standard box.
The principal part is the grip-jaw portion of the assembly, which has a female-thread form in its upper portion. This grip-jaw is die-stamped, with die-cut, toothed-shaped segments facing upward, which contact the underside of the structural member. The second part is the stamped top, which fits flat over the grating upper surface.

The body and top are joined by the third part, a 1/4″-20 threaded bolt. This bolt varies in length to suit what is required for the application.

INSTALLATION PREPARATION
As with any grating fastener, care should be taken during the grating layout, cutting and placement phase, to reduce the quantity of grating bars that are located over the structural member flange edge. This reduces the quantity of grating cross bars that interfere with fastener placement, which otherwise requires cutting of cross bars.

TOOLS REQUIRED
G-Clips can be installed using a hand-held 7/16″ nut driver. Other hand-held tools, such as socket wrenches or torque wrenches can also be used.

INSTALLATION GUIDE
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 is below the grating bottom. Slide unit laterally toward, and allow it to fit under, the structural member flange. Pull upward on the top of the G-Clip, holding upward force. With the formed lower-body secure under the flange area, tighten the bolt with a 7/16″ wrench, to complete the installation of the G-Clip unit.

TORQUE REQUIREMENTS
Common hand held nut drivers have a handle diameter of 1″ to 1-1/4″, which will allow installation torque (resistance to further tightening) of approximately 60 inch/pounds to be easily achieved. Aluminum fasteners are used for superior corrosion resistance in selected environments, but offer less holding strength than comparable carbon steel or stainless steel models. Installation torque should be approximately 40 inch/pounds if fastener re-use is desired. In-house testing has shown that the Model ALGG and ALGT-W top will maintain hold while tightened up to 60 inch/pounds, if the folded ears of the top are placed between the bars rather than over them.

Due to the decreased holding force that accompanies aluminum material, a comparably larger number of fastened points should be used in the installation process.

HOW TO ORDER
Determine the total height of grating and thickness of the flange area. Describe grating configuration to specify proper top assembly to suit grating being installed.
