Deck grating clips are also called saddles. These are used to hold metal and fiberglass grating in place with the use of an Arc Weld Stud, using Arc Stud Welding equipment.
Deck grating clips are typically utilized in partnership with a ¼-20 x 1" or longer threaded Arc Weld Stud. These saddles or deck grating clips fit over two sides of the grating and are fastened with a lock washer and hex nut.
This stud welding method can be completed with deck grating in place by using a long ferrule grip, which allows the stud to be shot in an area of limited space. However, if placement is known, these weld studs can be shot prior to the grating being set.
Weld studs and grating clips are far less expensive than drilling and tapping or using beam clamps that will eventually vibrate loose.
Both the weld studs and the grating clips come in a variety of materials. Needs for weld studs and grating clips are often based on location such as offshore or inland. However, 316 stainless steel is generally the preferred material for any marine application.
