An alternative method of securing secondary steelwork and
equipment to primary steelwork and I-beams

Examples of BeamClamp in Use

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.

Need an Off-The-Shelf Solution?
Try Fast Fit

Many of our Beam Clamp solutions require a very precise look at loadings and beam configurations. Fast-Fit is a pre-engineered "all purpose" I-beam connection solution that can be used to connect many different beams of varying sizes and angles.

We Provide More than Pieces & Parts

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.
