How to Install
Our landing covers are easy to install on any surface, from steel and aluminum plate to tile, composite grating, fiberglass, and more.
Installation Using Mechanical Fasteners
Landing Cover Installation Over Grating
Install utilizing universal saddle clip assemblies with slotted truss head bolt, nut, and lock washer (all stainless steel). The number of saddle clip assemblies is directly influenced by the condition of the grating to be covered. New and good condition grating (considered flat/level and non-corroded) may not require as many saddle clip assemblies.
Landing Cover Installation Over Diamond/Checker Plate
Install utilizing self-tapping or self-drilling (Tek) screws or rivets and low-profile head, nuts, and bolts (depending on your particular application). Adhesive can be used in lieu of or in conjunction with mechanical fasteners.
Landing Cover Installation Over Concrete
Install using screws and masonry fasteners. Adhesive can be used in lieu of or in conjunction with mechanical fasteners.
Landing Cover Installation Over Wood
Install using 1 ½” standard type screws. Adhesive can be used in lieu of or in conjunction with mechanical fasteners.
Installation Using Adhesive
When using liquid adhesive, please refer to detailed installation and surface preparation instructions. Follow the pattern shown for maximum adhesion when installing over diamond plate, concrete, and wood.
Minimum adhesive usage shown. Depending on the condition of the substrate, more can be applied or troweled.
