Use Floor-Fast to secure steel, aluminum, fiberglass or bronze floor/checker plate to the supporting steel or aluminum framework without field welding, drilling or tapping holes. Secure Floor-Fast to the bottom of the plate, position the plate in the floor opening and with a simple rotation of the socket head cap screw bolt, secure the plate. Simply reverse the installation process to remove the floor plate. No other system is faster to install.
Layout, drill and counter-sink the holes in the floor plate. (Figure 1)
Prior to installation, attach the Floor-Fast clamps to the floor/checker plate, positioning the clamp’s straight edge parallel to the edge of the plate (Figure 2). NOTE: The stepped surface of the FloorFast clamp faces toward the underside of the floor plate.
Position the floor plate on the supporting framework.
Using a hex wrench, release the socket head cap screw bolt one full turn (Figure 3).
Tighten down on the bolt. As it tightens, the stepped surface automatically locks under the framework flange (Figure 4).
Repeat the operation for each Floor-Fast clamp. Holes in floor plate should be 9/16” diameter, counter-sunk to accept the standard 1/2” counter-sunk flat socket cap screw bolt. Measure the positioning of the center of the hole drilled in the plate according to Figure 1.
