How to Install

Our anti-slip walkway and ramp covers are easy to install on any surface: steel and composite grating, steel and aluminum plate, concrete, wood, and more. Find instructions below for the appropriate substrate and method.

Installation With Mechanical Fasteners

Walkway and Ramp Cover Installation Over Grating
installation over wood

Install utilizing universal saddle clip assemblies with slotted truss head bolts, nuts, and lock washers (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 (considered flat/level and non-corroded) grating may not require as many saddle clip assemblies.

Walkway and Ramp Cover Installation Over Diamond/Checker Plate

  1. Self-tapping and self-drilling (Tek) screws
  2. Rivets
  3. Low-profile heads, nuts, lock washers, and bolts

Adhesive can be used in lieu of or in conjunction with mechanical fasteners.

Install using 1 ½” standard type screws. Adhesive can be used in lieu of or in conjunction with mechanical fasteners.
ATTENTION: Reduce the speed of your pneumatic air tools to prevent thread galling and bolt snapping while installing saddle clips. We recommend using a Torx screwdriver when installing to avoid head stripping. The use of a thread lubricant is also recommended to reduce heat and assist in the smooth installation of this product.

Installation Using Adhesive

  1. 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.

Weld-Tab Covers

These heavy-duty anti-slip walkway and ramp covers are manufactured from ⅛” pultruded FRP fiberglass and utilize 4″ x 4″ 316 stainless steel metal tabs attached around the edge of the cover. Weld-tab covers are designed to allow tack-welding directly to the metal/steel substrate. The covers are not recommended to be welded to one another.
