Fixing methods

SSG’s gratings can be fixed on the supporting members by the steelwork erector with clips or tack welding.

Please note, that, in case there should not be any lateral restraint provided by the support structure, a minimum of four clips per panel must be used to restrain floor panels. If larger panels are to be fixed, it is advisable to use extra clips on any available intermediate supports.
