RECOMMENDATIONS:
A. To prevent distorted installations, for example, twisting the frame or racking the grid, ensure that at least
one worker is handling each side of the frame and grid assemblies. To ensure safe foot traffic, take care
during installation that the elevations are aligned at the splices.
B . Grids and frames are pre-assembled and pre-fitted at the factory. However, the frames may be
disassembled for shipping, requiring some reassembly in the field.
C. The floor grid assembly may be provided in multiple grid sections. Each grid section should be clearly
marked with a number or a letter showing its relative position in the grid assembly. This allows grid sections
to be replaced in the proper order if they are removed from the frame.
D. To ensure a proper fit of the grid, measure and confirm all dimension on the approved shop drawings
before putting bracing (wood) or any support in place. It is very important that the diagonal dimensions are
also measured and confirmed, see Figure 2.
Figure 2
FGI1012
03/09/12
Page 3
E. Failure to use wood bracing in the frame during installation may result in improper fit of the grid assembly
in the frame. This would include the inability of the grid to fit properly when it is placed in the frame. Refer
to Figure No. 3 for the recommended placement of the wood bracing.
F.
In some cases a floor grid assembly is provided in multiple grid sections. In these cases clearly mark
each grid section with a number or a letter to show its relative position in the floor grid assembly. In this way
the grid sections can be replaced in the proper order if they are removed for cleaning or for any other reason.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT PLACE THE GRID ASSEMBLY INTO THE FRAME
UNTIL THE FINAL STAGES OF BUILDING COMPLETION.
Figure 3
INSTALLATION:
These installation instructions are for use in the installation
of floor grid type: FG-1 1/2(A, C, or V). The system
is illustrated in Figure 1.
FRAME ASSEMBLY:
STEP 1. Review Balco, Inc. approved shop drawings for types and locations.
Page 4
FGI1012
03/09/12
STEP 2. Lay the frame sections out for assembly.
Ensure that they are in the correct order for assembly.
Note that the frame sections are marked with a letter
indicating their relative locations, beginning with the
letter “A”.
STEP 3. Locate the mating corner sections for each
corner of the frame (see the details for the section
designations). Assemble the corner sections of the
frame first.
NOTE: GRID FRAMES ARE SPLICED
USING SPLICE PINS OR 90o SPLICE
BARS AND FASTENERS. DO NOT USE
A METAL HAMMER TO INSTALL THE
FRAME CORNER SPLICE PINS. USING
A METAL HAMMER WILL RESULT IN
DAMAGE TO THE SPLICE PINS AND
TO THE FRAME SECTIONS.
Figure 4
STEP 4. Select the splice pins, see Figure 4. Place
a splice pin into the raceway of one of the corner frame
sections. Note that the splice pins are configured into
90o angles.
STEP 5. Insert one leg of the splice pin into the
raceway of the mitered end of the frame corner section.
STEP 6. Using a leather, rubber or wooden mallet,
drive the splice pin into the raceway as far as it will go.
STEP 7. Select the mating corner section of the
frame. Mate the corner sections together, inserting the
exposed end of the splice pin into the corresponding
raceway in the mitered end of the mating corner section
of frame, see Figure 5.
Figure 5
STEP 8. Using a leather, rubber, or wooden mallet,
drive the splice pin into the mating section’s raceway as
far as it will go. Ensure that the corner sections fit
together snugly.
STEP 9. Assemble each of the frame corners,
following the procedures provided in Step 3 through
Step 8.
STEP 10. Select the anchor bolt jamb nuts and the
bent bolts (cast-in-place anchors). Place the required
number of jamb nuts into the frame raceways of each
frame section, see Figure 6. Please note that the castin-place anchors are spaced in accordance with the
spacing provided on the shop drawings.
FGI1012
03/09/12
Figure 6
Page 5
STEP 11. After all the corners have been assembled
and the anchor bolt jamb nuts are inserted into the frane
raceways, complete the assembly of the frame.
STEP 12. Splice successive sections of the frame
together. This is done using the Splice Bars and the
bolts and the jamb nuts provided by the factory.
STEP 13. Select the splice bars and fasteners and the
mating sections of the frame. Slide the head of a bolt
into each of the mating frame sections' raceways, near
the abutting end of each mating frame section, see
Figure 7.
STEP 14. Abut the successive sections of frame
together. Place a splice bar over the bolts that are in
each of the mating frame sections’ raceways so that
each splice bar traverses the frame splice and so that
the successive frame sections abut as tightly as possible.
Figure 7
STEP 15. Place a jamb nut on the end of each of the
splice bar bolts and tighten the nut onto the bolt.
STEP 16. Attach each successive section of the
frame to the assembly until the frame is fully assembled.
STEP 17. Slide the jamb nuts into position. The castin-place anchors are spaced in accordance with the
spacing given on the shop drawings.
STEP 18. Attach the cast-in-place anchor bolts to
the frame by screwing the bolts into the positioned jamb
nuts. Tighten the bolts, see Figure 8.
Figure 8
FRAME INSTALLATION:
STEP 19. Place the assembled frame in its installed
position. Ensure that the frame is level, properly
aligned, at the proper height. Be sure that at least one
(1) worker is handling each side of the frame. Note that
the top of the frame must be level with the finished floor
height.
STEP 20. Stake the assembled frame into position ,
attaching it to the concrete forms, see Figure 9.
STEP 21. Using wood bracing, as illustrated in Figure
3 and Figure 10, securely brace the frame to avoid
deforming during the concrete pour.
STEP 22. Pour the concrete or grout.
Figure 9
Page 6
FGI1012
03/09/12
STEP 23. Clean any excess concrete or grout away
from the exposed surfaces of the frame before the
concrete or grout sets up.
STEP 24. After the concrete or grout has cured,
remove the wood bracing from the frame, see Figure
11. Ensure that the wood bracing can be removed
without allowing the frame to bow.
STEP 25. If needed, pour concrete or grout into the
inside of the frame until the concrete or grout is level
with the frame's lip. This will ensure that the grid has
a level surface on which to rest, see Figure 12. This is
not necessary if the system is supplied with a pan.
STEP 26. If the system is supplied with a pan, ensure
that the pan provides a level surface for the grid.
Figure 10
STEP 27. Caulk all seams after the installation of the
concrete or grout.
STEP 28. If a finished floor material is to be installed,
install it at this time, see Figure 13. Install the finished
floor material in accordance with the material
manufacturer's installation instructions.
GRID INSTALLATION:
STEP 29. Inspect each grid section to ensure that the
vinyl shoes or cushions have not disengaged during
shipping. Reattach any vinyl shoe or cushion to the grid,
as required, by pressing the shoe or cushion onto the
foot of the appropriate support or tread leg.
STEP 30. Place the grid sections into frame. The
grid sections must be positioned as indicated on the
details. Abut the grid sections, aligning them with one
another. Square the grid sections as necessary and
center the grid in the frame. Figure 14 illustrate installed
grids.
Figure 11
CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE:
Balco, Inc. floor grids are designed to be easy to clean
and maintain. The following recommended procedures
will help to ensure that the grid remains durable and
retains its good appearance. Periodically it will be
necessary to remove dirt, etc. from beneath the grid. A
regular schedule should be established for cleaning
beneath the grid. When cleaning multiple section grids,
mark each grid section so that it can be replaced in the
same location in the frame.
