Type GF Grate-Fast™

A high strength floor connector for securing rectangular open bar grating to the supporting steel without the need for drilling or welding in the field.

View technical specification

Overview

The Type GF Grate-Fast connector eliminates the need for costly scaffolding or elevated floors as access to the underside of the flooring is not required. Installation is carried out quickly and safely from above, often by one person, significantly reducing costs. The malleable iron cast body along with the unique stepped clamping face, which locks under the steel, provides outstanding clamping force and a secure connection.
