- Only requires one tool for installation
- Hot Dip Galvanized to BS EN ISO 1461
- Extensive clamping range
- Can accommodate clips/brackets
- Tested for Tensile and Lateral Loading
The BL is used for clamping steel directly together without the need for a location plate. Typical applications would be clamping two steel sections of the same width running parallel or for clamping down pressure vessel lids. It can also be used with clips and brackets underneath the nut and washer side for connecting conduit or even pipe work. The clamp is tested for tensile and lateral loads, please see data sheet below. The BL part is specifically designed to grip the head of a bolt or nut which means the clamp can always be connected by using a single wrench. The central bolt can be replaced with other threaded items such as threaded rod, eyebolts or J-bolts to provide a suspension element.
The Safe Working Loads are based on assemblies tested in typical conditions.
