An alternative method of securing secondary steelwork and equipment to primary steelwork and I-beams
The BeamClamp range features technical innovations that provide a steelwork connection that is stronger, quicker and easier to install than traditional or competitive methods.
No specialized tools or labor are required for installation. Because BeamClamp is a weldless solution, it also eliminates the need for hot work permits. On site adjustments can be made on the fly by general workers.
All load capacities are clearly stated for each product in the BeamClamp range. BeamClamp is also LLoyds Register Type approved, ensuring it is a secure and safe connection.
Save time & money
Between skilled labor, additional permits, and potential adjustment costs traditional steel to steel connections are costly and time consuming. BeamClamp is a more cost effective and efficient solution.
Examples of BeamClamp in use
Lifting support for bridge rehab
A French bridge rehab project needed to connect I-beams together temporarily without deforming the permanent beams with welding. BeamClamp became the perfect engineered connection system.
Offset connections for I-Beams
Connecting I-beams that are offset from one another can be difficult. This is often needed in the manufacturing and refinery industries. BeamClamp can be used to bridge the gap between I-beam connections.
This is an example of a typical BeamClamp® assembly used to connect two steel sections together.
The assembly consists of a pre-drilled location plate  inserted between the two steel sections. An upper set of BeamClamp® components  clamp down on the lower flange of the upper beam while a lower set of components  work in the opposite direction, clamping the underside of the upper flange of the lower member. Additional packing shims  may be used to adjust the clamp to the thickness of the flange being connected. The connection is secured by inserting a bolt  through each of the lower clamps, the location plate, the upper clamps and then tightening a nut to the recommended torque.
