Types of Beam Clamps and Their Features

Types of Beam Clamps and Their Features

When choosing a beam clamp lifting, you must take the flange of the beam and the position of the load into consideration. The clamp identification plate will provide details such as the range of adjustment and adjusting capabilities. Most clamps are designed for in-line use and have lines of force at right angles to the beam flange. Clamps designed for side loading, such as models S1 and S2, are unsuitable. A wide range of different types of clamps is available.

These clamps are hot-rolled, oiled steel and conform to ASTM A1011 SS GR 33. They are typically used for lifting purposes, and some are even available in stainless steel. However, if you need to secure a beam to a structure for a special purpose, you should check the Unistrut Catalog for stainless steel options.
