What are the ways to install steel gratings

Generally,there are two methods for installing steel gratings: welding, and installation clips. So, what are the advantages and disadvantages of installing steel gratings? Let’s have a look below.

Welding is a common method of installation and fixing.Generally, the four points around the steel grating can be welded to basically fix a steel grating. If the steel grating is often stepped on by heavy objects, several more welding points should be added. The advantages of welding steel gratings are simple, firm, and economical. But when welding, it will destroy the galvanized layer of hot-dip galvanized steel grating.As a result, the welding points of the steel grating are easy to rust, which can be compensated by painting surface treatment.

The welding method is suitable for occasions where it is not frequently disassembled.

The steel grating is fixed by mounting clips. Generally, this method is more used on load-bearing mechanical equipment.The advantage of the installation clip is that it is easy to disassemble, no welding spot is needed on the beam, and the galvanized layer of the steel grid will not be damaged.
