Welding and using saddle clips are two ways for installation for HY aluminum gratings and HY steel gratings. Welding is suitable for those places where there is no need to move or distal. However using the saddle clips is featuring in easy installation.
As steel grating is usually used as drainage cover, the general installation way for it is using the saddle clips. There are three kinds of clips which are Type A, Type B and Type C.
Type A-composed of a top board with double hooks, a holding down plate with teeth and M8 inner-hexagon-bolt.
Type C-composed of a top board with double hooks (one of hooks can draw together the two neighboring steel gratings), and a holding down plate with teeth and a M8 inner-hexagon-bolt.
Type C-composed of a top board with double hooks and a M8 hexagon-bolt can be welded in supporting structure.
When aluminum grating is used for walkways or flooring or platforms etc, people usually use clips to install them to the ground. When aluminum grating and aluminum louver are used at exterior walls, we usually weld some flat bars to the back of the products and then use screws to fix them on the walls.
HY Expanded grating is used as walkway or cut and weld to be stair tread, Saddle clips are generally available for it.
For aluminum or steel stanchions, we usually adopt screws to fix them onto the ground, welding is also available. It is easier to install and remove by using screws than by welding.
