GP Parallel Attachment Clip
G-Clip describes an assembly of fastener parts, each containing three common parts. First is a G-Clips unique top for better holding strength. Second, a G-Clips patented bottom connects to the beam underside. A hex head cap screw connects the two, and its length suits the grating height being installed. G-Clip model GP-1 describes an assembly of fastener parts that can be used to fasten parallel grating panels to each other. The top part is a G-Clips unique top for better holding strength and to suit 19W4 grating. Second, a G-Clips patented bottom bar connects between the grating panel underside and projects sideways under the second grating panel. A hex-headed cap screw connects the two, and its length suits the grating height being installed Use of this model can reduce the deflection that often occurs when a single grating panel deflects downward due to traffic, and adjacent but unconnected panels cause an inadvertent trip hazard. By combining the strength of two panels, the load is shared, and deflection is lessened. Used properly, this can reduce trip hazards.
