Grating and Checker Plate Fasteners
Welding alternative solutions for energy and industry applications
Platform gratings and checker, or diamond, plates are commonly installed in ships and industrial structures, such as refineries, power plants and offshore platforms. In these environments, you will often see these structures serving as walkways, footbridges and catwalks, among other applications. With their open web design, platform gratings offer high bearing capacity combined with a low specific quantity of steel. The open web design does present unique fastening challenges traditionally solved by time consuming and tedious welding processes, but Hilti has a quick and reliable direct fastening solution for grating.
Fastening to steel base structures has never been easier with the wide range of direct fastening solutions that we provide with you in mind. To help ensure that you have the right solution for your job, we have worked to design two mechanical grating fasteners – one for mildly corrosive environments and one for highly corrosive environments. Additionally, we also have a diamond and tread plate fastener that is suitable for mechanically fastening to steel profiles.
