Saddle clip for steel grating
There are three types of saddle clip.
Classification of Saddle Clips
Type A-comprising of a top clip with double saddle, a lower clip with teeth and an M8 inner-hexagon-circular-stud bolt.
Type B-comprising of a top clip with double saddle ( of which one saddle can secure the two bearing bars of adjacent gratings ), a lower clip with teeth and an M8 inner-circular-stud bolt.
Type C-comprising of a top clip with double saddle, and an M8 hexagon headed bolt which can be welded to the support member.
Installation of Steel Grating
For installation, two fastening methods can be used: welding or using saddle clips. For permanent and non-removed installations, steel gratings are tack-welded to supporting steel. As the four corners of panel, the first bearing bar is tack-welded to the support member with fillet weld of 3mm min in height and 20mm min in length. Yuanzheng saddle clips are available, which have such advantages as not destroying zinc coat and easy removing.Each panel should use at least four saddle clips, and a few more clips are preferably used to fix to the available support members for the larger panel. Please refer to the following table when selecting saddle clips:
