Engineered Connection Solutions
We Provide More than Pieces & Parts - We Provide Engineered Connection Solutions
In conjunction with the manufacturer, it is our goal to provide you with more than just a list of parts. In addition to providing material we can provide the engineering support necessary to evaluate the Beam Clamp connection solution. Our team of engineers will work with you to determine which connection solution is most appropriate for your situation.
We Solve Steel-to-Steel Connection Problems
If you have a situation where you need two large pieces of steel to connect, we can help. Whether you are connecting two new beams together or you are trying to secure something to existing steelwork our team will help provide you with engineering support for the connection point.
Two Example Solutions
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. Keep Reading...
We offer a full engineering service to support our products which includes recommendation of an individual product through to a full design capability for a large project. Our technical team has 2D/3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) capabilities and can supply design engineers with specific application solutions. Our Technical Sales Engineers perform regular Continuous Professional Development (CPD) seminars to educate the design engineers on how to specify our clamping products.
The Cost of a Connection
Is it worth it to pay $60.00 for an engineered connection? The numbers clearly add up that using an engineered Beam Clamp connection is less expensive, more efficient and safer to install.
