The Type BT clamp is specifically designed to clampto the tapered flanges of Structural I-Beams and steelchannels. The clamp has a recessed upper surfacethat is designed to hold the head of a bolt in placewhile the nut is tightened. The rear section of theclamp is called the tail and is available in two differenttail lengths, these being size 1 and size 2 [seeDimension E on the table below]. By selecting theappropriate tail length and with the use of BeamClamp shims any thickness of steel flange can beconnected. To make selecting the correct tail lengtheasier please refer to Table 2 and 3 on page 17 of the catalog.

The Safe Working Loads are based on assemblies tested in typical conditions.
|Model||A Bolt Dia||B||C||D1||D2||E||Width||Torque (ft lb)||Tensile SWL (lbs)
|Friction SWL (lbs)
(per 4 bolts)
Add 1, 2 or 3 to the product code to indicate the desired tail length. For example, a 5/8” bolt diameter with a 5/16” tail would be product code BT2G16.
Do not exceed the Safe Working Load (SWL) specified
