BeamClamp Configuration

BeamClamp Configuration

Typical BeamClamp configuration

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 [4] inserted between the two steel sections. An upper set of BeamClamp® components [2] clamp down on the lower flange of the upper beam while a lower set of components [5] work in the opposite direction, clamping the underside of the upper flange of the lower member. Additional packing shims [3] may be used to adjust the clamp to the thickness of the flange being connected. The connection is secured by inserting a bolt [1] through each of the lower clamps, the location plate, the upper clamps and then tightening a nut to the recommended torque.
