The Type BW clamp is specifically designed to clampto the tapered flanges of Structural I-Beams and steelchannels. The clamp has a flat upper surface thatallows a nut to be tightened down. The rear section ofthe clamp is called the tail and is available in twodifferent tail lengths, these being Size 1 and Size 2[see Dimension E in the table below]. By selecting theappropriate tail length and with the use ofBeamClamp packing shims, any thickness of steelflange can be connected. To make selecting thecorrect tail length easier 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 BW2G16.
Do not exceed the Safe Working Load (SWL) specified
