There are many different types to choose from, ranging from the most common saddle clips, to friction clips which are the easiest to install.

Saddle Clips with Screws
Saddle clips are the most commonly used type of grating anchor. They can be placed over two bearing bars, and using a self-drilling, self-tapping screw, can be drilled into the support unit to hold the panel in place. These can come plain, stainless, or galvanized.
These clips are another commonly used clip type. They are one of the easiest to install as well. It is particularly popular among oilfield projects. These clips look like a “G”, and the open part slides over the edge of the flange from the inside. For example, if a channel is toed in, the G clips can clip to the panel, as it will be able to lock down the grating. If that same channel is toed out, the clips will not hold the grating if they are used. These can come in many different finishes as well.
Grate Fast Clips
Grate-Fast clips function somewhat like the G-clips. This clip has a bar that runs underneath the grating, and the hook that sits on top. This clip uses friction to hold itself in place, clamping the grating to a member flange. This type of clip is another one of the easiest types to install.
Hilti is a manufacturer of grating clips. They have several different styles to choose from, ranging from saddle style clips, to disks. Our sales staff can go over with you each of the types, and the pros and cons of each.
