CUTTING AND INSTALLATION GUIDE

Safety Precautions

When cutting American Grating products, always wear safety goggles to protect your eyes and a dust mask to reduce dust inhalation. Also wear gloves and a shop coat with neck and sleeves taped to prevent skin irritation. Work in a well-lighted and ventilated area.

Cutting Products

Depending on the amount (lineal feet) of grating to be cut, a variety of shop tools can be used. For best results, use a heavy-duty rotary saw with a masonry, carbide or diamond coated blade. Firm support of the panels will prevent shifting. Turning the panel bottom-side-up gives a smooth surface for the saw to ride on and reduces chipping. Be sure to allow for the blade kerf (3/16”) when measuring.
   

Grinding

All cut edges should be ground smooth. Use a coarse gritted, open coated (resin) grinding disk.

Finishing

All cut surfaces should be coated with resin to prevent corrosion of glass fibers. A coating of a two-part resin system or comparable to the resin used in the manufacture of the fiberglass grating should be used to maintain corrosion resistance.

Installation

Provide for a minimum of 1 ½” support around all panel edges. Use 2 type “M” stainless steel (type 316) clips every 48” (maximum). A minimum of four clips is required for any piece of grating.
